Inspiration for this Blog

I came across three quotations recently that provided the inspirational spark to start this blog...

"She fancied herself a writer, but she found that she had not engaged in 'writer-like' behavior in weeks. You know, actually writing." Djuanna Brockington of Diva Fiction Bytes

"But words are things, and a small drop of ink, falling like dew, upon a thought, produces that which makes thousands, perhaps millions, think." Lord Byron

"Oh that my words were written! Oh that they were inscribed in a book!" Job 19:23 (NASB)

Those three quotes are tacked up on the wall next to my computer to remind me that I am a writer...but only if I actually sit down and write...duh!

So, I'm starting this blog with a promise to myself that I will write something every day. I'll set aside a little chunk of time to exercise the gift God gave me and if my words can encourage, inspire, amuse or provoke thought...I will be a happy girl.

thank you for paying attention to the gift that the Lord has given you. i love the attention to detail that are in your writting. when you write you create not only food for thought but you have the ability to create pictures in my mind. it's these two things together that help me to remember what i read and it you think about it it's exactly the way that God wrote the Bible!!!! Hmmmmm! your work is truly HS inspired. Missy

Thank you so much, Sista! I find I am really enjoying the writing process again. I take a kernel of a thought, sit down and start typing and I am amazed at what comes out. It's truely a blessing from God. It actually feels as if we are writing it together.

Then I get the added bonus of hearing that someone likes it or was touched by my writing...icing on the cake!
