"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

WFW: Mist

Welcome to my contribution to Word-Filled Wednesday, hosted each week by the delightful, Godly, and lovely Amy Deanne at her blog. Anyone can participate - just partner some of God's Word with a picture of some kind in any way you like. It is quite a blessing to see what folks come up with.

Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. James 4:14 NIV

I often look at the beauty of our world and treasure it. And, sometimes, I look at the ugliness of it and stew in it. It is good to remember that my life, here on earth, is but a mist that will vanish. Eternity, however, will not vanish--and it will be perfect.

  6. Beautiful reminder, Joanne.

    I've often thought of how fleeting our life is here on earth . . . how we should cherish every moment and use those moments carefully and prayerfully.

  8. I pray that something of my mist lingers on in the lives of my children and then some. I want to leave my mark; the older I get, the more urgent it feels.

    Beautiful verse.
