Bridging the gap between writing and publishing

Hi, I’m Marcie and I’m so thrilled you are visiting with me today. Thank you for stopping by.

It is my hope you will feel at home here in my little corner of the world. I’m a lover of sweet tea and chocolate.  But if you prefer coffee, then bring your own cup, pull up a chair, and let’s see if we can help you cross the bridge to being the best writer you can be.

Did I mention I’m a lover of poetry? I find that it best expresses my love of God and helps me find my way through difficult places. My book, Broken and Spilled Out is my collection of poetry and prayers for the hurting soul. Besides chronicling my own insights, my readers can also journal and record insights of their own. You can get your copy here.

Should you simply need some encouragement, I invite you to meet me over at my blog Heart Thoughts.

I’m so glad you’re here and look forward to connecting with you!

His Divinely Beautiful Presence

The LORD replied, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.” Exodus 33:14

As I watched these clouds float by, I suddenly felt like I was underneath His wing (Psalm 91:4) and He was breathing on me giving me new life and renewed energy to keep going.

This week, I am thankful—grateful—for God’s presence. Because in His presence is fullness and joy.

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you. I pray you will enjoy every minute of this week and feel His abiding Presence in your lives.

When You Pray Upon A Star

I wished upon a star
Then watched it fall
And I knew that God
Didn’t hear me after all.
Downcast I closed my eyes
And breathed my wish to Him
Then felt it float up and away
To heaven where He lives.

Do you remember wishing upon a star as a child, hoping it would bring you what you secretly wanted most?

Or how about sending Santa a letter hoping he would bring that special something to you on Christmas day?

Then when your wish didn’t come true or you didn’t get that special thing you wanted more than anything, what happened? You quit believing and maybe even quit dreaming and asking.

God is near to us. He is near to the broken-hearted. Are you feeling far away from Him? Take a breath and breathe a prayer to Him our of a sincere heart. When we seek Him, we will find Him.

An Exceptional Thanksgiving

Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

God doesn’t want us being lukewarm people. He wants us to be ignited for Him.

How do I do that when I feel so down and out? How do I shine His light out into the world when my world feels like it has fallen to pieces and there’s no warmth in sight?

With joy, prayer, and thanksgiving.

I know it is hard to be thankful when life feels anything but good, but learning to experience everyday in thanks-living is a gift not only to us, but to those around us.

Go on, try it. Try saying out loud a few things you are thankful for or writing them down and see if your face doesn’t turn that frown upside down.
