Finds for (Good) Friday April 22

I pray that, today especially, you remember the sacrifice Christ made for us on the cross.

Several years ago, I wrote a poem for the FaithWriters' Writing Challenge that folks have often told me is especially fitting for today. Thanks to my awesome husband's leading, it is going to be read (by him, by the way!) at our church's Good Friday service.

It's one of those pieces that I know was inspired by God. If you'd like to see, click here (then come back for Finds for Fridays LOL).


Finds for Fridays is my way of sharing some of the wonderful blogs posts I read each week. I am currently following over 100 blogs and at least scan them as much as I can.  Each week, I'll note and "set aside" some posts that especially speak to me for whatever reason. And each Friday that I am able, I'll share them with you. I hope you'll stop by and read the posts, and maybe even follow the blogs if you aren't already. A win-win, right?

And now...here they are!

Salad Bar Bible by Carol Hatcher at Internet Cafe Devotions (about picking and choosing what to follow)

The Anointed Author By Angie Dicken at The Writers Alley (about our anointed accomplishments - and this is one of my new FAVORITE blogs!)

We Can Make No Promises by Scott Eagan at Babbles from Scott Eagan (about getting an agent as a sure way to publication - or not)

Six Screws and One Piece Left Over by Lynda Schultz at Grains of Sand (about the instruction manual and creator)

Hope you'll stop by these blogs and check out the post - and maybe even follow the blogs. You won't be disappointed.

My One Word: 2016 and 2017
