"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

The Ministry of Silence

Job's friends get a bad rap - and, in general, I'd say they deserve it. But they DID do one thing VERY right.

I'm over at Jewels of Encouragment today, talking about how we respond to people who are grieving. Sometimes, we don't know what to say - and that just might be correct. Hope you'll see what I mean and read about the ministry of silence.
 
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
