What’s Inspiring You This Week?
Here’s What’s Inspiring Me…
Inspiration From God’s Word
Peace I leave with you,
My peace I give to you;
Not as the world gives do I give to you.
Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
Devotional Of The Week
Each week, I look for a devotional that I believe will
Speak to your heart as much as it speaks to mine.
When I read Barbara’s “Prince Of Peace”,
Today’s verse immediately came to mind.
Thank you, Barbara, for reminding us that in the midst of
Life’s turmoil’s, Jesus remains our Prince Of Peace!
Back in January, I joined the GoodReads Challenge.
I found it intimidating to publicly commit to a goal.
However, after much hemming an hawing,
I set out to read 75 books this year.
On July 26, I reached that goal!
Now, I’ve set a new goal:
Read 125 books this year!
To follow my progress and see what I’m reading,

The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.
That’s how I feel about blogging.
Like life, it’s an adventure.
You type your first word – you write your first post –
You take one step, then another,
And you see where the adventure leads.
This week, I’m amazed that my journey has led to 1000 posts!
The honored spot goes to Rosemary Cottage – a book I reviewed
For best-selling author Colleen Coble as part of her Litfuse Blog Tour!

Patsty’s Art in Rina’s Home
Like many of you,
I have been a fan of Patsy at Heartwork’s Art for a long time.

That I learned you can purchase Patsy’s artwork from her website!
Have fun visiting Patsy’s Art Gallery!
Gillian’s quote says it all.
