"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 APRIL 20 (a bit late!)

(Friday Fiction is RIGHT below this post!)

I know this generally posts on Thursday, but I FORGOT until this morning!

Monday Manna

The purpose of Monday Manna is to get together and get to know Christ more through His Word.

For those of you unfamiliar, on the first and third Mondays of each month, anyone who wants to participate can post their thoughts on a specific verse. The verse is posted here at my blog on the Thursday before, to allow you to chew on it over the weekend. It doesn't have to be a long post -- just a few thoughts, a picture you feel helps express it, a poem, a short story, a devotional. Just post it on your blog on Mondayish (early OR late is fine, by the way!), then come back here and link up in the Mr. Linky gadget that will be at the bottom of MY post at o'dark thirty that morning.

This week's verse was part of my kids' quiet time this morning, and it definitely grabbed me.
You will be his witness to all men of what you have seen and heard. Acts 22:15
Though these words were spoken to Paul, they are for all of us. Looking forward to hearing what everyone has to say on Monday!


  1. That's a great verse that helps explain our purpose in this world- to be a witness and an example for the God we love and the forgiveness we have.

  2. Blessings Joanne...You mean for this Monday, APRIL 20th right? Not May...time is flying by fast enough for me...slow down Joanne & smell the roses, life is too brief to skip ahead a whole month(lol) that is some advance notice!!!

    I'm hoping that as I soak this a weekend the LORD will stir up something for me to share from ACTS!!! Hopefully I can do my Memory verse, Mission4Monday & this, especially since you only do it 2 times a month...right? I saw this recently and put it in my notebook but by God's grace, I showed up here to be reminded.

    EnJOY your weekend!

  3. I'm going to pray about doing this.

    Blessings to you this day.

  4. I like your idea! Everyhing we do witnesses and testifies as to who and what we believe.

  5. Love this verse! It really "says it all" in terms of what we are to do:-)


Thanks for stopping by. I would love to hear your thoughts - please share them!
