What’s Inspiring You This Week?
Here’s What’s Inspiring Me…

Kelli Woodford – Chronicles Of Grace

Kelli - Grace Around The Edges

This week, Kelli inspired me with her beautiful essay
Grace Around The Edges, where she shared that

The gospel of grace calls us to sing of the
Everyday mystery of intimacy with God
Instead of always seeking for miracles and visions.

She also continued her journey of counting
A thousand gifts she is thankful for.

I invite you to visit Kelli and be inspired by
Her beautiful writing and blog!

Judy - Birthday Wishes

A lady never tells her age
But it’s a special one!

Is the perfect creation
To mark the occasion!

Inspire Me Monday

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