Rilyn has a writing prompt each morning at school and every Tuesday afternoon she brings home all her writings from the week. I always enjoy reading her musings, and thought I would compile some of my favorites into one post and keep record! It brings much joy to my heart to read that she tries to include her faith whenever possible! I know her teacher knows that this girl loves Jesus! :)
Writing prompt: What rules do you have to follow at your house? ”I have to do the laundry and the dishes. Boring! I also have to do my homework right away. We can not murder. I can not be guilty of adultery. I can not steal.” (This one cracks me up! She knows her Ten Commandments, doesn’t she? I wonder what her teacher was thinking when he read this?!)
Writing prompt: What do you like about your style? ”I like my style because I think I look cool. I have a lot of make-up at home. But there’s something else more important, my belief in God. Now that’s important.”
Writing prompt: What do you like best about your appearance? ”I like my appearance. I think I look good. But God cares about the inside of your heart.”
A Christmas Poem by Rilyn
“Under this tree are presents you know
But the real Christmas is real without a doubt
It’s about a little boy you see that came down from heaven
He’s the King of Kings
See the star up top?
That represents Jesus.
There’s a clue.”
Love this girl’s heart for Jesus!
And just because it’s cute to remember:
I was checking her spelling homework and one of her words was “recall”. The sentence she wrote was “We called him and he didn’t answer, so we recalled him.” :)
She had to write a sentence for “focus”, her sentence was, “I focus on my testes.” That extra “e” can really change things, dear…
