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

Update On My Sister-In-Law

I will restore you to health and heal your wounds, declares the Lord.
Jeremiah 30:17

Jeremiah 30:17Art By: Lilac-N-Lavender

Dear Friends,

Thank you so much for the prayers and support you have
Extended to our family during a very challenging year!

I wanted to let you know that my sister-in-law has been
Released from the hospital and moved to a long-term,
Sub-acute rehab facility that provides
Medical care and extensive daily physical therapy.

The fact that she is alive and lucid is a miracle in and of itself.

We hope you will join us in prayer that she will regain her mobility
So that she can walk again and return to a more normal life!

Thank you also for your love and support as
My family grieves the loss of my beloved Mother.
All of your prayers, comments and correspondence are greatly appreciated!

Song Of The Week – Blackbird

This week’s theme at Music Moves Me is British Invasion.
Blackbird is one of my favorite Paul McCartney songs of all times.

For another Mom-inspired musical pick that fits this week’s theme,
Hop over to Friendship Friday, where we’re hosting an Anything Goes party!

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!

    Continuing to lift you & your family in prayer. There is nothing like the power of believers uniting to call up on the Lord to move His hand. I really enjoy seeing all the inspiration of others that you share each week, and to listen to your song choice that you link up with Monday’s Music Moves Me. Thanks for joining the dance party! 😉
