The Gift of Literacy
October 5, 2013
There is something so amazing and so special and sacred about this ability to read and to write.
This gift of literacy, in other words.
To be able to read the words of someone who sat somewhere and penned them (or carved them) 100s and even 1,000s of years ago is mind-boggling, if you think about it!
It is like time folds together and you are receiving what that person thought was most precious to share. And to write down what is most precious to our own hearts and “keep” it, as in CHERISH the thoughts and feelings that we have in response to what the other person testified of.
What a blessing it is to me to use this tool of writing. It slows my mind and heart down. It helps me meditate upon the words I’m listening to or reading.
