Writers get support & inspiration from the work of other writers. This first post in the Five for Friday series features the writing of three bloggers. I pray that your heart will be touched as you read.

Her post The Unforced Rhythms of Grace begins with the words
I’m sure you’ve had it happen to you–a phrase in a book, a line in a song, a quote from a movie grabs hold of you and Won’t. Let. Go.

Give It All
This video treat was found by Melody, a dancer with a servant’s heart.
The dance is beautiful.
And for those of us who are left-behinds, it is especially poignant.
Enjoy! (Read more)
