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!

Oh How Excellent!

I stand amazed.
God’s creation overwhelming me.
Its vibrant, brilliant colors
the way rivers flow
and ocean’s billow
I cannot comprehend
their depth or width
how the waters meet sky
creating a horizon of endless sight.
And I wonder
how does He make it all just…so?

I can feel my lungs evaporating
hyper venting…

I wanted to pocket it. I tried to savor each moment of each day. Especially the times out on that balcony. Don’t get me wrong. I got my feet sandy and wet. I walked with my hubby along the shoreline at sunset. (And sunsets are sooooooo spectacular at the beach!) But that quiet time sitting on the balcony in the breeze was just the thing I needed to recharge, renew, and rest.

Thanksgiving in July

And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him. Colossians 3:15-17

So for this week, I want to begin with a poem of thanksgiving to our Lord. I want to begin this time with Him in gratitude. For in all we do, we should and need to do it with a heart of thankfulness.

Won’t your heart join mine today in thanksgiving to the Lord?

The Art of Paying Attention

She walks each day at least 3 times
maybe more
with or without the dog
through countryside and to the river
with ease
she sits under an apple tree
sometimes she spies the horse or cow
sometimes it’s just the rustling
of leaves somehow
that causes her to stop and ponder
look to the sky
and hear each word He whispers
to her.

I want to learn this art of stopping to smell the flowers like she does… I wish I knew her secret. But then again, I do know her secret. I just don’t know how to stop and pay attention like she does…

Next week I’ll be at the beach. I wonder. What will He have for me to see? What will I hear? What will I write? Will I find time to stop, pay attention, and listen for His whispers? Or will I get too caught up in the adventure?
