Thought For The Week
Our God likes to use things and people who are ordinary
To let others see the extraordinary contrast
Of His presence burning within them.
Donna – Burning Bush
This week marks the launch of the Book Nook at Create With Joy –
A new Blog Party and Community for Book Lovers!

Please stop by – we’d love to welcome you into this new community!
A new year – a fresh burst of creativity!

Music To Inspire You
Welcome to Music Moves Me!
This week, we were presented with a fun theme:
Share songs of bands/people with animal names in them –
Just no Beatles songs!
Did you know there are well over 100 artists that qualify?
How many of them can you name?
For my song, I’ve chosen the upbeat song,
I Love A Rainy Night, from the late great Eddie Rabbit –
Who reached #1 on the Billboard charts with this infectious tune!
I hope you enjoy the music and have a wonderful week!
Talent is timeless.

I like the idea of Inspiration Monday.
Monday’s often get the short end of the stick
But they are fraught with potential!
