"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: Splendor

Welcome to my contribution to Word-Filled Wednesday, hosted this week by the lovely AmyDeanne at the 160-Acre Woods. Be sure to stop by there and check out other visual inspiration from Scripture - and don't be afraid to add your own!

My internet was out for THREE DAYS plus (went down Friday night late and didn't get back up until yesterday afternoon). Yeah - I went bonkers - but it forced me to use one of my own photos for this WFW (LOL and I had plenty of time to work on it) - and to use MS Paint (NEVER again! Picnik is SO much easier!!

Took this picture several years ago at the "Butterflies are Blooming" exhibit at the local gardens and sculpture park. A WONDERFUL excursion if you ever get to Grand Rapids, Michigan during butterfly season :)

Let them praise the name of the LORD, for his name alone is exalted; his splendor is above the earth and the heavens. Psalm 148:13
