My son, Jackson, has always been pretty good about keeping his bedroom relatively clean but his idea of cleaning is "out of sight, out of mind" which means he stuffs things any place he can find! It's not unusual to find candy wrappers in his underwear drawer, game controllers behind his sofa or empty glasses stuck under his bed. Pretty typical stuff for a boys room, right? But one day while gathering dirty clothes from his room, all the while I was fussing under my breath at the state of his room, I spotted a ragged torn piece of paper that I scooped up to toss in the trash. Just as I was tossing it, I recognized the handwriting as Jackson's left handed "chicken scratch"! Messy misspelled words an all, I was completely taken back by what he had written:
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.
