And into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade.

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

        Glad you like it! I love the original version too but it’s more “powerful”.
        I came across the acoustic version this week and fell in love with it!
        I love acoustic music – it makes one very reflective!

    Happy Monday after Easter! I could not resist sharing my link today because well, I can’t stay away- but I have a poem I REALLY want to share that goes live tomorrow (12 AM). Anyway, as always love all of your shares from around the bloggy world and as always your book reviews. God is so good. Hope your Easter was blessed and those boys did not eat the Easter Bunny! 😉
