"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


Monday Manna for February 21

The purpose of Monday Manna to get together and get to know Christ more through His Word. Each Thursday, a Bible verse to ponder will be posted, either here or at my dear friend Vonnie's blog, My Back Door. The following Monday, those participating will post their thoughts on the verse at their own blogs and link up at the bottom of the post in the Mr. Linky  gadget. The main purpose is to chew on the same Scripture and learn from one another.

I'm hosting this week.

I came across this verse at my friend Wanda's blog. It totally grabbed me in the NLT translation. And then, cuz that's the way I am, I looked it up in the NIV. And I recognized it as THE VERY FIRST VERSE used at Monday Manna, back when the lovely Kristen Schiffman created and hosted it back in August of 2008. So, it's a repeat - but I am probably the only person doing Monday Manna now who was doing it 2 1/2 years ago. So here we go :)
My heart has heard you say, “Come and talk with me.” And my heart responds, “Lord, I am coming.” Psalm 27:8 (NLT)
Looking forward to hearing your thoughts. See you back HERE on Monday!
