"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

Context

Context is VERY important to meaning - especially in God's Word. It is easy to cherry pick a verse and apply it to a situation that doesn't fit.


 I'm over at the devotional blog Jewels of Encouragement today, talking about that very thing - and one time I did exactly that. Hope you'll check out my post on context. Could be interesting - or enlightening!

A New Person

And here I am again. :)


 I'm over at Jewels of Encouragement today, talking about the change that comes over us when we follow God. Hope you'll stop by and read what I, and His Word, have to say about becoming a New Person.

Chalk and Slinkies

Are you wondering how these two things above are related?

Actually, they aren't - other than the fact that they are the subject of a couple posts I wrote, both of which are live today.
The Barn Door
The chalk post? That one is at the Midwest group blog The Barn Door, where I talk a bit about our favorite local festival - and my lovely daughter's participation in it this year. Hope you'll stop by and read about (and see pictures of) Chalk Art - In the Family.

 

And then there's the slinky. My post on THAT one is at Internet Cafe Devotions, where I share how one of those wonderful toys got All Tangled Up. Enjoy!

And stop back tomorrow - I'll have ANOTHER post to share :)
