Writing Books

A talented woman was asked by a friend, "Why have you never written a book?"

"I am writing two" was the quiet reply. "I have been engaged on one for ten years, the other five.:

"You surprise me!" the friend said. "What profound works they must be!"

"It doth not yet appear what they shall be," said the woman, "But when He makes up His jewels, my great ambition is to find them there."

"Your children?"

"Yes, my two children. They are my life's work."

~ from The Shaping of a Christian Family, by Elisabeth Elliot
