"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


In Him: Monday Manna for June 7

Monday Manna

The purpose of Monday Manna is to get together and get to know Christ more through His Word.

On the first and third Mondays of each month, anyone who wants to participate can post their thoughts on a specific verse--posted here at my blog on the Thursday before, to allow you to chew on it over the weekend. It doesn't have to be long -- just a few thoughts, a picture you feel helps express it, a poem, a short story, a devotional. Just post it on your blog on Mondayish (early OR late is fine, by the way!), then come back here and link up in the Linky Tools gadget that will be at the bottom of MY post at o'dark thirty that morning.

This Monday's verse is from one of Paul's sermon's: this one to those in Athens. I'd never really pondered this thought until it was pointed out to me in my Wednesday morning devotional.
For in Him [God] we live and move and have our being. Acts 17:28
Feel free to check out the context - you'll find it fascinating, I'm sure - or not. I look forward to thinking on this over the weekend - and even MORE reading your thoughts!

See you back here on Monday.

Paving Rough Roads With God's Presence

  2. I agree with Yvonne! hope to join ya too

  3. Just an aside: I had to get my son out of bed and show him that text. He was excited to see his name in Acts 17:5ff. It got us talking about what Jason means (healer).

    Now, about the verse: Great text. Will be chewing on this one. :)

  4. Joanne, It's been awhile since I participated. can ya link me up?
