What’s Inspiring You This Week?
Here’s What’s Inspiring Me…
Inspiration From God’s Word
I will praise you, O LORD, with all my heart;
I will tell of all your wonders.
When Worship Hurts – Donna Schultz
Like Donna, I often reflect on worship.
Like Donna, I have discovered that:
Praise does not always flow.
Sometimes it’s a choice.
Sometimes it’s a battlefield.
In her post, Donna shares her favorite worship song.
Heart Of Worship by Matt Redman is one of mine.
Heart Of Worship – Matt Redman
Book Of The Week – Tales Of The Defended Ones
A must read book – once you start, you will not want to put it down!
Sit Down And Write – May 1 thru 14, 2013
Whether you’re a novelist, a blogger, or a book reviewer –
If you write, this event is for you!
I’ll be joining and I hope you’ll be too!

Inspire Me Monday #69 – Week Of April 29, 2013
I like the idea of Inspiration Monday.
Monday’s often get the short end of the stick
But they are fraught with potential!
Now it’s time to share your inspirations! You can participate in Inspire Me Monday in the following ways:
1) Share “What’s Inspiring You” by creating your own Inspire Me Monday post! You can include any creative challenges you’ve discovered – any books or quotes you love – any bloggers who have inspired you – anything that has inspired you and will inspire us too!
2) Share your creative projects with us! You’re welcome to link up your Arts & Crafts projects – your Recipes – your DIY, Home Décor and Organizational Ideas – your original Writing, Music & Photography – you get the idea!
3) Visit the participants – share some comment love – let them know what’s inspired you!
When you link up, be sure to include the Inspire Me Monday button and a link back to this post on all of your entries so that your readers can join the fun! The blog code is on the side bar if you need it!
Be sure to link directly to your Inspire Me Monday Posts and Creations using the permalink to the individual posts – not your blog’s home page URL – so that participants can easily find and comment on your creations!
The party will remain open all week so have fun sharing – inspire me with your comments – and please, use the social media buttons below the post to spread the word!
