"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: Shofar

Welcome to my contribution to Word-Filled Wednesday, hosted this week by Susan at Forever His. Be sure to stop by her blog for more visual inspiration from scripture.

This is the time of the Jewish High Holy Days, and nothing brings back memories of this time like the sounding of the ram's horn, or shofar. It is a beautiful sight as well as sound. (If you're interested, I write a bit about this time in my post at Exemplify tomorrow)


Make music to the LORD with the harp,with the harp and the sound of singing,with trumpets and the blast of the ram's horn— shout for joy before the LORD, the King. Psalm 98:5-6

Thanks for reading (and listening!). Be sure to stop by Susan's blog for more
