A very interesting insight into the mind of a Writer - and probably gives all of us "Second Thoughts" to your statements in this article. Very enlightening, and something to think about. Kudos!
Your story is so true. I know that feeling of having a story to tell and not letting it out. God had given me this gift when I was in grade school and I never used it till now. I am 74 years old and just began my adventure in writting and only now do I feel fulfilled. Like Jer., It was a fire shut up in my bones. I hope your wife is now using her God given gift.
I'm assuming this is a true story, and I hope you'll be able to persuade your wife to write some of the stories that have been entrusted to her. She can even write them in narrative poetry if that's where she's most comfortable. Your devotional thoughts in the last paragraph are very good, a reminder that God gives us inspiration for a reason. (And a funny little P.S. If you ever run into a story about a child on an adventure with a cloud named Bumpy, I wrote it years ago. I sent it several places, but it was never published to my knowledge.)
I needed this so much. I suffer from the same lack of confidence. I'm thankful that God has not given up on me. I finally realized that if I don't use the gift He gave me, I may lose it, so I'm going for it now! Very thought provoking piece here.
