"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

Are You Pondering Enough This Season?

But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart. Luke 2:19 

Tis the season to be busy. With Christmas preparations, kids home from school, plus life's regular stuff has many of us moving at the speed of light (or at least wishing we could!).

A to-do list as long as your arm is not conducive to relaxation, is it?

But in the midst of your busyness, be sure to take the time to reflect - to ponder - all that is going on. Mary did - and she'd just given birth in a stable, in a too-crowded town.

Stop by Jewels of Encouragement today, and read my devotional about the need to ponder - especially at this time of year. And also join us for a discussion at the Facebook group Living by Grace. And have a wonderful, ponderous Christmas!

My heart is stirred by a noble theme as I recite my verses for the king; my tongue is the pen of a skillful writer. Psalm 45:1
