"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

Word-Filled Wednesday: Child

Welcome to my contribution to Word-Filled Wednesday, hosted each week by the lovely Amy Deanne at her blog.

In the midst of difficulties, it's hard to turn to Jesus with pure, innocent faith. But it is only if we leave all our "grown-up inhibitions" behind that we can truly be blessed in abundance by our Heavenly Father.

I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it. Mark 10:15
