"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

Encouragement

 This post is part of Patty Wysong's
  A to Z meme. This week's letter is "E."
 A to Z blog hop at Patterings.
I post at several different blogs in addition to this one. With few exceptions, every post I write, whether it is on my blog or one of the others where I contribute, is meant to be encouraging to the reader. In fact, I've been told by several people that encouragement is my spiritual gift. And, well, I believe it.

It just so happens that one of the places I blog is a devotional blog called Jewels of Encouragement. And I've got a post over there today that is meant to, well, encourage you. In your fears. In remembering that God will NOT give you more than you can handle.

Hope you'll stop by and check my post out - and be encouraged.

Sometimes, you see, God will just leave your flip flops on the welcome mat.
