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

    Wow! What an awesome song to listen to after being unable to blog due to illness! Thank you so much for sharing. I am so happy to be able to link up again. Thanks for hosting and have a great week.

      Hi Judy,

      I hope that you are doing better! September is such a difficult time for so many people – myself included.
      I heard that song for the first time last night and it just fit!
      There were so many awesome videos to choose from – but in the end, I went with this one because it felt like it gave pause for a moment of silence, of sorts.

      I hope it inspires you – and others – through the difficult moments in your life!
      Have a blessed week. You remain in my prayers!

    Thank you for featuring Rebecca’s Panda Rice Tutorial this week. I’ve shared this post via social media and grabbed your button for both the post & my sidebar/features.

      Thank you so much! Had planned to contact you both but have been having connectivity issues – sigh. This is the week for creative lunches and your Bento creations are among my favorites! 🙂

  4. Thank you for hosting! What a lot of creativeness!! Have been following you but saw you on the Blog Hop Blitz and had to stop by and say hi and then I saw that your party was open!

    I can’t find where to link up. This happens to me sometimes on other blogs too. Is it just my computer?

    • Create With Joy
      Twitter: CreateWithJoy1

      Thanks for letting me know, Sharon! I don’t know what happened but the original code – which was working just fine earlier – seems to have gone on siesta!
      I just added the “new” code in and it appears to be up.
      If anyone else has a problem, please let me know!

  9. I don’t see the link up option. 🙁 I will check back.

    Thank you for featuring my artwork, Chosen. I love the scripture you chose to go with the piece. I created the piece with Romans 11:17-18 in mind–God grafting us into the vine, Jesus, yet your scripture is so perfect as well.

  12. It’s always fun to see what everyone is doing. Blessings, Ramona!

  13. Thanks so much for the Cafe Press giveaway! I used my gc on an iPhone case and it is beautiful!

  14. FABBY says:

    Nice features. I love Hanna and her new doggie! Thank you for hosting this great party!
    Have a blessed week, sweet lady.

  15. FABBY says:

    Oh, what a wonderful song Judy…I love it too! Hugs,

  16. Poppy says:

    Such interesting features; how cute is that panda rice?! And can always appreciate helpful advice on simplifying ANYTHING!

    Thanks so much for hosting and have a super happy week!


  17. Rina Peru says:

    How sweet of you to feature Hannah my daughter and her new pet dog Lexie! Thank you! Have a blessed week!

  18. Diane says:

    Hey Ramona, Its gonna take me all week to get through all these great blogs! You have one of the best hops out there, and I am always so happy to be on the hop list! Watching the sun come up with some coffee, and ready to start enjoying a few of your blog hop participants…..
    Have a great week!

    SO glad to be here again, Ramona. The baby maters are babies no more, and have oodles of brothers, sisters and cousins to play with. *lol* There are a couple of bell peppers on my lone plant and the pumpkins have leaves that you could use as a hat! Thanks for being inspiring, not just on Mondays, but on every day of the week!

  21. Marcie says:

    Happy monday thought a nice way to start the week is with some blogging goals. Thanks for the party!

    Love the verse you shared here, so encouraging. I also love the Casting Crowns song you posted. God used it to get us through a tough time a few years ago.

    Thanks for hosting this blog hop! : )

  29. OneMommy says:

    Thanks so much for featuring our painted sandwiches!

    Have a wonderful week!

  30. I linked up on page 2! I thought it didn’t link until I saw there was another page!

      Sorry the link is “tricksy” this week!
      I normally use the “old” code when I post but it went missing for a bit on Sunday so I substituted it with the “new” code instead.
      The new code is supposed to be more social media friendly – but I prefer the old code because it looks tidier and puts everything in 1 place!

      • Sara says:

        The new code is nice. When you hover over a picture of an entry you can share the post on Facebook, twitter or pinterest! It’s nice!

  31. I Love 1Peter, too!! Thanks so much for sharing it! Well, I didn’t link up a craft or a recipe this time. I linked up something infinitely more personal, about my reent Sprirtual Blessing. I hope you like it! Thaks for giving my voice and Faith a forum to share in!
    Many Blessing to you and yours!
