Shoot like a Girl | Crayon (#31days)

Day 2: Bungoma County, Kenya.

In every meeting, there is the moment. The look, the word, the pause that disrupts my world and strips my soul of itself.

We stood in the classroom made of mud and sticks. Wycliff looked at me and held out a single crayon. “You fly here from the heavens to provide food and medicine and clothing. It is life-saving and we are thankful. But you also give our children this – adventure and fascination. The world has shape now because of you. It has color. It has form. The children – they only travel where their feet take them. But because of you, they now imagine the world as their home.”

I wondered what it might be like if we imagined more. Perhaps our worlds would find shape and color and form – and home.

I wanted to give the world a single crayon.

About Ronne Rock

YOU ARE GOD'S HAND-CRAFTED DESIGN. AND I WANT TO CELEBRATE YOU.

We're in this together, and I am for you. I secure road signs with a hammer of hope, and clear the debris so they can be seen. I am your encourager. I walk and keep walking. Cheer and keep cheering. I invest, dive deep, and cherish most the stories being written in the lives of women who believe restoration is a reality on earth as it is in heaven. God holds the pen in those stories, “That one - I hold her. And that one - she is My delight. And that one - never snatched away.”  I am a mouthpiece of celebration for women. Redemption is our song. You can find even more encouragement in  "For You, Love" the prayer journals that invite you to respond, and in Everbloom, a collection of stories from the Redbud Writers Guild. I'm currently writing One Woman Can Change the World, set to publish late spring 2020 (Revell). I'm honored to be represented by Credo Communications.

  1. I love this. We can find and give color, shape, form, and home in more ways and in more places if we just crack open our imaginations. Spread wonder.
