"If you write FOR a particular market or FOR a particular editor you will often miss the mark. But if you write because your fingers have danced across the keyboard, because a character has tapped you on the shoulder, because a story has settled in your heart, then even if you never sell it you have done the work you were meant to do. And sometime, dear readers, real magic happens." Jane Yolen

Monday Manna for November 17


Well, since next Monday is the third one in November, it's my turn to host Monday Manna, an opportunity for all who are so moved to read and post on the selected verse on the third Monday of the month. (Kristen at {dancing} in the margins does the same thing for the first Monday of the month) We give you the weekend to chew on the verse, and then post something (anything, really - long, short, a photo - whatever). The idea is to all chew on the same scripture and learn together.

Anyhow, without further ado, the verse that I've chosen, that has kept me thinking all week thus far!

Monday Manna this time around is Romans 12:1 (if you click on the link, you will pull up a Biblegateway passage lookup, with the verse in five different translations. I'll post it in NIV just to have it right here)

Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God—this is your spiritual act of worship.
Looking forward to hearing what you folks come up with. See you back here after the weekend!
