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

Inspiration From God’s Word
2 Corinthians 5:20 – Ambassadors For Christ

We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors,
As though God were making his appeal through us.
We implore you on Christ’s behalf:
Be reconciled to God.

Ambassadors For Christ

Art & Article: Ambassador Patsy – Patsy at Heartworks

This week, Patsy inspired us with her beautiful art and
Her wonderful ideas for putting this verse into action.
By truly getting to know Jesus,
We can begin to impact the world around us!

Galatians 3:29 – Descendants Of Abraham

If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s seed,
And heirs according to the promise.

Art & Article: On To Israel – Peggy AplSeeds

Jesus Is Lord

Patsy’s sister, Peggy, continues to inspire –
And be inspired –
By her recent trip to Israel!
If you’ve always wanted to visit the Holy Land,
Do so vicariously with Peggy!

Book Of The Week – The Briarpatch Gospel

The Briarpatch Gospel

Learn how to follow Jesus into the thorny places of life –

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!
Judy Palmer

    I love love love how you email us about your new link party! that’s so personal and thank you!

    to continue my upcycling craze, i used military uniform to create an ipad case. hope you check it out 🙂

    Have a great week!

    • You’re so welcome Mandy – I’m glad you appreciate the invites!
      You are such a talented seamstress. The ipad sounds awesome. I really enjoyed your Renaissance Fair costumes.
      It’s been a long time since I’ve been to one of those!

      • mandy says:

        To tell you the truth, there are MANY blogs out there hosting link parties, but you are the only one with the emails! that sets you apart from all others! and i might be old school, but i believe in personal relationships, we are all bloggers, and we need to support each other any way we can, and you have shown me that you go above and beyond!

        I havent been to a Ren Fair in a couple of years, but i wanna go this year, so i better get my sewing machine ready for this big project!

        and thank you for your compliment! but i dont think i am as talented as u said i am lol but i like to learn and improve my work, and that’s what i am doing. with link parties like yours, i can look at other crafters and see how they get so good and i try my best to do it lol

      • Thanks Mandy – your comment touches my heart!
        I could not agree with you more about the importance of personal relationship among the blogging community!

        I hope you make it to the Ren Fair this year.
        They can be so much fun! 🙂

  5. Thanks so much for having me today. It’s been a long time since linking up so it’s great to be here after my bloggy break!

    Best wishes for a wonderful week,
    Natasha in Oz

    • Natasha – what a WONDERFUL surprise! Do you know I was just visiting you this weekend?
      Don’t think I left a comment – just made myself a mental note to get in touch – so we must be on the same wavelength!
      SO good to see you!

      Don’t be such a stranger – have missed you! Are you still hosting your music linky or just the G’Day meme now?

  6. diane says:
