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!

Put Your Past In Your Past

Put Your Past In Your Past

Guilt is the glue that holds you to your past. ~Liza Shaw, Therapist

I’m wondering what kind of guilt you are holding onto today? What is it that you cannot seem to let go of? No matter how hard you try, it keeps coming back. Like a boomerang, you throw it upon the Lord but next thing you know, there it is again, eating at you.

I had been clinging to the guilt of what I thought were mistakes and sins. Yet she reminded me of this one important fact:

“When you give it to God, he takes it away right then. Don’t you want that?”

All I Want To Do Is Praise You

All I Want To Do Is Praise You

I will sing to the Lord as long as I live;
I will sing praise to my God while I have being.
May my meditation be pleasing to him,
for I rejoice in the Lord.
Psalm 104:33-34

As I thought about writing tonight I realized, all I really wanted to do was write a praise poem. All I wanted to do was praise the Lord!

And I wanted you to do the same.

Will you join me? I’ve put on my headphones and I’m searching out songs of praise.

Crawling Into a Hole and Hiding

Crawling Into a Hole and Hiding

Her little black face peeked out from under my daughter’s bed. We had been looking for Inky for a couple of hours. It’s hard to find a black kitty in darkened corners and under beds.

Inky and one of our other cats, Scooter, do not get along at all. Well, it’s more that Scooter doesn’t like Inky. In any case, Inky had gone into hiding.

There are times I wish I could be just like Inky and crawl in a hole and hide. I’m sure I’m not alone. Sometimes it seems hiding from the world and from responsibilities of life is the best thing I can do.

While it may be okay for us to go into hiding from time to time, the question is, are we using this time to refuge in the Lord? Or, are we using it as our own protection from the world? One is God focused, one is self-focused.
