What’s Inspiring You This Week?
Here’s What’s Inspiring Me!
This week I am impacted by life and death and
Inspired by writing from the heart…
Thanks to all of you who have prayed for my sister-in-law.
Earlier this year, God granted us a miracle and
Gave us the gift of precious time with her.
Now He has given Susan the gift of eternal rest
And has called her home.
This is the third family member we have lost this year.
We walk each day in God’s mercy, love and strength.
Please keep us in your prayers.
It’s never easy to lose someone you love…
Especially when that someone is your child.
If you or someone you know is faced with this circumstance,
I encourage you to read Pamela’s story and tips on
How to move through the darkness.
Thank you, Pamela, for sharing this difficult experience with us and
Offering others encouragement and hope!
When I was in school studying American History,
I learned that one of the greatest tragedies of the Civil War
Was that it turned fathers against sons, brothers against brothers.
The consequences of war are more far-reaching
Than we can ever conceive.
My heart broke as I read Barbara’s story of her and her sister –
Connected by DNA but separated by a lifetime of choices.
I pray with Barbara as she continues to cultivate
An attitude of gratitude…
Are you planning a special trip this year?
If so, why not create a special Travel Journal for the occasion?
Let Pat’s beautiful journal serve as creative inspiration…
If you suffer from food allergies of any kind,
You will appreciate the challenge of
Eliminating wheat from your family’s diet…
Keep your kitchen cool with out Treat Of The Week –
Eliza’s refreshing No Bake Lemon Slice Cake!
Have you ever felt led to do something but backed away
Because you felt you weren’t qualified to do the task?
In her inspiring article, Stop Limiting God,
Joy reminds us that God doesn’t call the qualified –
He qualifies the called!
Are you trying to create the perfect blog?
Are you wondering where to host or

Music To Inspire You – Time Of My Life
Welcome to Music Moves Me!
This week I’m Celebrating My Birthday with the
Climatic finale to the movie classic Dirty Dancing –
(I’ve Had The) Time Of My Life –
A song that was voted “the most iconic dance moment”
In a 2013 poll by QVC!
Time Of My Life won the 1987 Grammy award for
Best Vocal Performance by a Duo (Bill Medley & Jennifer Warnes)
And an Oscar for Best Film Song.
The Dirty Dancing Soundtrack remained in the
#1 slot on the Billboard charts for 18 straight weeks
And has sold over 48 million copies worldwide.
Enjoy the song and enjoy your week!
Talent is timeless.
