Friday Round-Up - #104

Do you want to write devotionals, but need some guidance? Debbie Roome, at PixnPens, gives a brief tutorial.

Angela, at the Bookshelf Muse, talks about symbolism for the emotion, "hope."

Have a wonderful weekend!

Hi Sarah -

Welcome to my blog. I apologize for the inconvenience.

The browser you're using could be the problem. One or two other people have difficulties. They wait until the next post comes up and then read this one.

Unfortunately, I'm not a techy person. One of these days, I may get brave and move to Wordpress.

Blessings,
Susan :)

Hi Carol -

You're welcome. There aren't too many markets for devotionals, so I thought this would be helpful.

Blessings,
Susan :)

Sassy Granny ... said...

I really appreciate the link as I've pondered the possibilities of penning a devotional myself.

Have a great weekend yourself! I'll be huddling up with grandkids - - the best ever!

Oh Susan, I love that photo of the boat, with HOPE wide across its side.

Happy weekend!

Good finds.

I have an issue with the top of the post being cut off, too. But you can see it by clicking on comments and then, at the top left, click on "show original post."

Susan J. Reinhardt said...

Hi Sandra -

Thanks for the tip!

Blessings,
Susan :)

Nancy said...

What a lovely list Angela brought us as symbols of hope. I love "sighting seagulls at sea."

I was surprised at "Pandora's box" as you have to dig through a lot of troubles to get to the hope. I can see how that could be used in a very specific situation.

Hi Nancy -

I thought she had some interesting suggestions. If you look on her sidebar, she has a number of posts related to her Thesaurus.

Blessings,
Susan :)

Hi, Susan. Thanks for all the time you spend to bring us these links.

Did you know Silent Governess won a Christy Award? Thanks again for giving it to me--do you want it back when I finish reading it? HA!

I saw The Silent Governess won the Christy Award. How exciting for Julie!

The book is yours. If you don't want to keep it, feel free to pass it along.

Susan - I just read Debbie's great article on devotions. I'd like to come back to her blog next week for the markets. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Nancy -

You don't have to wait until next week. I'm sure the article is already posted. My blog posts are written a month ahead of time.

Glad you enjoyed the article. :)
