"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

Who To Look After: Word-Filled Wednesday

Welcome to Word-Filled Wednesday, hosted this week by Penny at Pennyraine. Be sure to stop by her blog for more visual inspiration from scripture.

As soon as I saw this picture (about ten minutes ago LOL), I KNEW I had to use it for Word-Filled Wednesday - and, of course, I knew just what verse to pick.

Praying it blesses, and convicts, you. I know it has me.



 Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world. James 1:27

  1. Hey Joan,

    That is one powerful scripture and picture.

    We can't forget those around us, these people are near and dear to the heart of God.

    Hope your day has been a blessed one!

  2. One of my favorite verses. It's buried in my heart for those times when I worry I'm not doing enough "things" for God. Thanks, Jo.

  4. Reminds me of the promise of blessing in Isaiah 58:11 that comes as a result of caring for those in need—verses 6 and 7 are particularly appropriate.

    Good one as always, Joanne.

  7. When I went through my divorce and the subsequent 3 years that followed, there were many people who came to my aid in more ways than one. This verse has special meaning for me, and it brings to mind some special people who meant so very much to me during time. Thanks. I'll say an extra prayer of blessing over them tonight.
