All Me | Listen to the Mustn'ts...
A couple of years ago I bought Where the Sidewalk Ends" by Shel Silverstein for Princess Mighty. It is a collection of poems and drawings that I remember finding at the library in my elementary school. She has been carrying this book around and reading the poems and commenting on the drawings. I love the fact that she loves to read and write. As someone who reads like crazy and fights my way through NaNoWriMo every year I want my children to enjoy being creative.
Here is one of my favorites from way back then.
LISTEN TO THE MUSTN'TS
Listen to the MUSTN'TS, child,
Listen to the DONT'S
Listen to the SHOULDN'TS
The IMPOSSIBLES, the WONT'S
Listen to the NEVER HAVES
The listen close to me--
Anything can happen, child
ANYTHING can be.
This take me back to this word from Phillipians chapter 4:13
I Can Do All Things Through Christ Who Strengthens Me
You will hear all kinds of voices in this life. There is only one voice, however, that you should ever really listen to.
