"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

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.

The verse popped into my mind yesterday evening (it's from an ABSOLUTE favorite passage from the OT), and this picture was one of the first I found in my search.

 Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates. Deuteronomy 6:9
