The following verse stirred something in me recently & has been inspiring me every day since I discovered it:
Light-seeds are planted in the souls of God’s people…
~from Psalm 97, The Message
*I’m going to be jumping on & off Blogger this week. I’ll be hard at work teaching a Creative Writing Workshop for 2nd-6th graders.

  1. Ooh I love that thought. Light Seeds :)

    all the best for your workshop.

  2. Wendy,
    Thanks for inspiring me! May your workshop bring LIGHT seeds.

  3. How cool that you will be teaching kids to write!!! be sure to write about how it went please.

  4. Have fun at the workshop Wendy~ I know you will be a blessing:)

  5. Beautiful pictures. And what a fun workshop idea! Enjoy your week!

  6. Plant some light seeds in those kids! :O)

  7. I hope you and your students enjoy the workshop.

  8. Lovely. I pray each day the Lord will use me as His vessel!

  9. And speaking of light, I love the verse in Philippians where it says we "shine like stars in the universe" as we "hold out the word of life." Beautiful picture.

  10. Have a great time teaching the class!

  11. Wendy, I love the way that's worded! I know your classes will go wonderfully! They are gonna' love you.

  12. Tabitha, I loved it too. Still do. It's one of those that strikes at the core.

    Patti, God is the inspiration. All God. The kids today were fantastic--willing to dive right in.

    Terri, I'll keep you posted. I'm loving the experience so far.

    Tamika, Thank you. We were in sync today.

    Sarah, When I first read that verse I wanted to find picture to complement it. These are gorgeous, but they still don't quite touch the beauty of the verse.

    Diane, I pray God does just that.

    Keli, I know I did. The time flew.

    T.Anne, I could pray that more than I do. I hope He does it even when I'm not praying it. And I hope I learn to ask that more.

    Rhonda, We just vacationed in Maine--camped out actually and on my way to the bathrooms in the middle of the night (b/c what woman over the age of 20 doesn't have to go in the middle of the night?) I looked up and saw a sky covered with stars. Makes that verse all the more powerful.

    Cindy, I had a blast.

    Karen, Exactly. I love how it's worded. I don't know if they loved me, but they did interact for two hours.

    Thanks for the well wishes about the class. I've eaten enough chocolate to kill a dying horse. Well, anyway. What woman minutes away from entering the bloated zone doesn't eat that much chocolate? ;)

    Sleep dreaming of stars, chocolate and light-seeds.

  13. Hi Wendy -

    Teaching kids to write sounds like fun. I've thought about putting together a course and even have a few props. Do you write your own curriculum?

    Susan :)

  14. Susan,

    It's been better than I'd anticipated. I contacted some of my writer friends and got some advice. Otherwise I pulled from my creative writing degree and my dozens of books on writing.

    I ask a lot of questions, keep it interactive and encourage all thoughts. It's refreshed my outlook. I love when the teacher learns.

    Hope you try it.
    ~ Wendy

  15. I've never heard it put that way. How uplifting!

    Have fun teaching. They're lucky to have you!
