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!

Today I tried to do my day without having a quiet time. I got up later than I wanted/meant to and decided I would spend time with Jesus later.
Nothing went right from the get-go.
I think the key to making each day count is making sure Jesus is our first love. Making sure we are seeking Him and putting God first in our lives.
There’s a special kind of a soothing feeling when we’re in the presence of God. When we get so silent, we can hear His gentle whisper in our ear, that falls like droplets of rain onto our heart, and slides softly into our soul.
I wasn’t sure what this poem was about when I wrote it a few months back, but I’ve been wanting to share it. Once I really got to thinking about being in the presence of the Lord, this made much more sense to me. There’s a sweet relief within us, when we are curled up, and still with Him.
Good intentions. We all have them for one thing or another. But, good intentions do not always bring the results we hoped for.
Good intentions are wrapped up in the dream of doing something. Usually it is something noble but sometimes it is just the dream of doing things more perfectly in life.
For instance, how often do we have the intention of getting up and doing our devotions and prayer time first thing in the morning? Then, the next morning comes, and for whatever reason we do not do it. So, what do we do next? Ahhhh, yes. We say, “I will do it at such-and-such time later today.” But later comes, and well, you guessed it. We wind up lying in bed wondering where the day went and how in the world we got through it without having that time with God.
And we wonder why we are in such a bad mood, and everything seems to be going wrong.
Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and
he will establish your plans.
Proverbs 16:3 (NIV)
