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!

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever. 1 Chronicles 16:34
I’ve been working on my new poetry book, Gatherings of a Grateful Heart. For five years I have been writing a poem a day during the month of November. I call it “30 Days of Thanksgiving”. Each day is a poem about thanksgiving in some way. Sometimes it is not as evident in the words where the thanksgiving is, but it is there.
This week, I cannot seem to pick just one poem to share. Here’s a sample of six of the poems in my book.
I hope they encourage you and help you find ways to give thanks to the Lord this week.
I LOVE how the Psalmist encourages us to go to God in our times of distress. This afternoon I pulled out my iPad, opened the Bible app, searching for something to give me a little light. A little hope.
Ever have God touch the Bible for you and open it just where you need it? Oh how sweet His grace was as He said, “Open to Psalm 42.”
“Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God,
for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.”
Did you see it too?
I stood up against my car in the carport, eyes closed, listening to the rain as it came down in a soft, gentle lullaby.
Delightful and refreshing, I found peace within my soul.
I recently read, if we stand outside for 20 minutes (or longer), it lowers blood pressure, relaxes the body, and brings calm.
Well, I don’t know about hot, sticky summer days. But this sudden rain shower sure did refresh my spirit.
Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and
he will establish your plans.
Proverbs 16:3 (NIV)
