"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


Rest: Word-Filled Wednesday

Welcome to Word-Filled Wednesday, hosted at The Internet Cafe. Be sure to click above for more visual inspiration from scripture.

I haven't looked, but if I were a betting woman, I'd wager I've done this verse before - maybe even similarly to how I did it this time. But I need this verse - and this image of it. How often I feel the need to be scooped up in my Father's arms and protected! How often does He have to hold me like this so He can give me the rest I refuse to take of my own accord?  Am I weary? Am I burdened? Often- much more than I should be. Only He can give me rest.

Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28
