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!

I traveled down the mountain toward home with a heavy heart.
The heaviness not borne of my own troubles, but of someone else. And while I have no idea what her burdens were (or may still be), I felt the overwhelming need to pray for her.
Although the verses seemed to be for her, they comforted me as well. I knew my good, good Shepherd was speaking to me.
I pray you hear Him speaking to you, too, through these, His words. And you find rest for your soul as well.
Sometimes my brain feels like it is pacing back and forth. The burdens on my heart fill my mind and I cannot decide which way to go with the things I have become privy to.
But, I was reminded this weekend of what belief is. Yes, I know we talked about this just a couple of weeks ago. But it bears repeating. Faith is belief in action.
I want to focus on the word “belief” though. Belief is what you know to be true. It doesn’t mean you have faith in it; it just means you believe in its existence and it could happen.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil;
For You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
What is the scariest, darkest thing you can imagine going through? Maybe you’ve already gone through it.
In the allegory, The Pilgrim’s Progress, there is a point in which Christian must walk through The Valley of the Shadow of Death. As he looks at the valley, he knows he does not want to go through this dark place. But he is assured that if he stays on the road and does not look to the left or right, he will get across this valley safely.
This valley is so dark, deep, and scary, there are times when Christian cannot even see where his foot will land when he takes the next step. He hears voices. He’s even overcome by “the wicked ones” who whisper grievous words in his ears and he cannot tell if they are coming from his own mind, or where the accusations are truly coming from.
Is this sounding familiar to anyone? I know I’ve certainly been in this valley. I’ve walked it more times than I care to admit to or count.
But I want to assure you of this one thing: God is with you. Through every single moment of this darkness, God is right there with you.
Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and
he will establish your plans.
Proverbs 16:3 (NIV)
