"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 May 4 (and other stuff!)

I'm at Exemplify this morning with my Ponderings on the Pentateuch series. I'm writing from Numbers (and even a bit of Joshua) today - come see what we have to learn from Five Bold Women. (taking next week off from that, by the way, as I'll be gone. Hope this one lasts you a couple weeks! ;) )

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.

I'm currently working through both 1 Samuel and Luke in my daily Bible reading. I've got royalty on the brain, and this verse really grabbed me. Figured it would be a good, practical, thought-provoking one for this coming Monday's verse. As always, take it and run with it!

Then Jesus said to them, "Give to Caesar what is Caesar's and to God what is God's." And they were amazed at him. Mark 12:17

Looking forward to hearing all your thoughts. See you back her on Monday!
