I intend to spend this day with all the curiosity and imagination that God gave me.
Today I will be aware of the gift of READING. Most of us who are doing these intentions can read. It is an amazing skill. Some struggle with it. Some cannot read at all. Some would like to, but were never helped. While our species survived without it for a long time, living in today’s culture without it is very difficult. I will notice how many times today I read instructions, street signs, news, directions. I will realize the privilege of that skill.
I intend to spend this day with God.
Jeremiah 30:2 (NRSV)
Thus says the Lord, the God of Israel: Write in a book all the words that I have spoken to you.
I intend to share my joy.
How will I share this day?
Volunteer at a literacy class?
Read to a child?
Donate books to a shelter?
Send books to a prison? Inmates are hungry for reading material – usually books must be new and come directly from a merchant. Check with the facility before sending any books.
