My Inspiration...

Happy WORD FILLED Wednesday!

I took this photo years back in one of my travel to the US...this is an old Oak tree...

I chose this week's verse to resonate the strength of the Oak tree and my struggles at work...

I am working on some materials right now...and I plan to publish it. Maybe in the coming weeks I'd be soliciting your opinions on publishing since I know most of you are writers for life. Wish me luck! No, I don't need that, I need your prayers. :)

Celebrate with us as we share inspiring Bible verses at Word Filled Wednesday!

even the largest oak trees begin as acorns.
Knowing that we know anything can be done with effort and will.

great job, it's a fanastic picture! It speaks volumns. I hope you get it published!

and hey, you don't need Mr. Linky on your blog for WFW, unless you are hosting it, a link back is just great for Word Filled Wednesday! :)

God Bless!

Jill said...

I love oak trees and all that they can teach us - about standing strong through the storms and being what we were set out to be from a little seed!

Blessings today!
Jill

Debra said...

Blessings Mariposa...gorgeous photo
of this old oak. When I saw it I thought of Psalm 1:3(even though there is no water in your photo)!

"..He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither.
Whatever he does prospers ..."

So my prayer for you is just that
to prosper and no more struggles with work...that YOU may yield
good fruit in season and not wither!

Thanks for your visit! Enjoy a
Word Filled Wednesday!

Love that picture! I love the fall...its my favorite time of the year.

Kat said...

A great verse to consider each morning as we begin our days, and what a beautiful picture. I picture our Lord just like that big old Oak tree. He is so strong and like the oak offers us offering both shade and relief when things get too hot in our lives, a place of peace when the rest of the world seems to be drowning out what He is trying to say to us. A place to be still and know that he is God :)

wow beautiful photo and an amazing verse. Blessings to you today.

Wonderful photograph, and the verse is so fitting. I will keep you in prayer as you seek to write. Go for it! I, too, have a distant goal to do something similar, so I'll be keeping an eye on you :) Happy WFW!

Melanie said...

I love the fall picture and how true is this verse!

Happy WFW!

Beautiful image Mariposa! May the Lord help you persevere with your project!

Let me know what you decide on publishing. I've been working on a novel for about 5 years now and it's almost done, but I don't know what to do with it.

What a gorgeous photo … and PERFECT Bible verse superimposed! I’ve not heard of Word Filled Wednesday, but will try to check it out … perhaps. I’ve been doing Whimsical Wednesday on my own at Small Reflections the past few weeks and whatever arises at Sacred Ruminations … just because.
Hugs and blessings,
