Imagination

I am grateful for the imaginative play we witnessed as our children were growing up and that I see today in our grandchildren. Last Saturday I shared a poster by Miss A. M. Upjohn who worked with the American Red Cross in Paris. I have another of her posters for you today. Its subject was cultivating children’s imagination.

Poster by Miss A. M. Upjohn published for the American Red Cross Child Welfare Department on March 28, 1919.

Miss Upjohn succeeded, don’t you think?

Homeschooling gives your children time to cultivate an imagination. Thank you for giving them that precious opportunity. The world may tempt you to fill up too much of their time with “educational opportunities.” Please give them all the education they need, but don’t let the world steal the time they need to imagine.

Now to Him who is able to do
immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine,
according to His power that is at work within us,
to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus
throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
Ephesians 3:20-21
