First, let us include another "color in our palette" - vocabulary building time:
percipientper-SIP-ee-uhnt \ , adjective; 1. having perception; discerning; discriminating: a percipient choice of wines. 2. perceiving or capable of perceiving. noun:1. a person or thing that perceives. [courtesy of dictionary.reference.com]Here's my sentence: The man was so percipient, he could tell if I was having a bad day before I even spoke.
Next - one of my favorite quotes about writing:
"Thoughts disentangle themselves when they go through the lips and the fingertips ... writing makes a man [or woman] more precise." - Rick Warren
And now - your prompt:
Today's topic: POWER ... Take 15 minutes to freewrite [no editing, just type what comes to your thoughts] about what power means to you, or an experience you recall regarding power. Feel free to include poetry or turn it into a fiction scene also. When you're finished, paste it into the comments below, or the link to your blog post. I can't wait to read what you're thinking.
Finally, a prayer:
Father, would You bless our writing for Your glory? May you use what we write every day to refine us, build our simple faith, grow our character, and spread Your Gospel and glory. We live to honor You alone, and Your power is what we need again today. We love to serve You, Jesus.
"In the same way, you should see yourselves as being dead to the power of sin and alive with God through Christ Jesus." - Romans 6:11 (NCV)
