"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


Overflowing (Word-Filled Wednesday)

Welcome to my contribution to Word-Filled Wednesday, hosted this week by the lovely Christy at Critty Joy. Be sure to stop by her blog for more visual inspiration from Scripture.

I just love waterfalls. Love the sound of them, the look of them. They always remind me of the Lord's overflowing love and mercy - and everything else that overflows from Him.

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13

Be sure to stop by Christy's blog for more visual inspiration from scripture.

  4. I love this verse! It was the very first verse "given" to me by a dear friend in middle school and it's stuck with me ever since.

  5. It's easy to overflow with all kinds of not-so-pleasant stuff. What a wonderful goal to pray for, work for,and aspire to.

    Thanks, Joanne.
