"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 May 2

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.

Was having trouble picking a verse this week - but this one jumped out at me as I did my daily Bible reading this morning.  Can't wait to ponder it -- and hear what you guys have to say!
“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33
Thanks for stopping by. Looking forward to your thoughts - and mine - on Monday

Paving Rough Roads With God's Presence


  1. Good one, JO! I already have an idea of what I'll write about.

  2. This one will fit nicely with my series, Jo. I'll keep "peace" until Monday. :)

  3. Yes, keeping our eyes on Jesus always alters the current landscape, doesn't it?


Thanks for stopping by. I would love to hear your thoughts - please share them!
