"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: Fading

I'm celebrating my Blogoversary this week--be sure to stop by Monday's post to enter the drawing for the wonderful book Women of Passions: Ordinary Women Serving an Extraordinary God.

Welcome to Word-Filled Wednesday, hosted this week by eLisa at Extravagant Grace. Be sure to stop by there for more visual inspiration from Scripture.

Got a picture VERY SIMILAR to this in my head to go with this verse that was there too. SO glad I was able to find it! :D

Charm is deceptive and beauty is fleeting, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised. Proverbs 31:30

May we all be women to be praised!

Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to stop by Extravagant Grace for more


  1. I have been going through Proverbs 31 lately, oh so much to learn and grow in! But, I no longer hate the Prov 31 woman but am encouraged by her now! LOL! Wonderful post :)

  2. I always love reading the proverbs!
