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

God’s Word
You have collected all my tears in your bottle…
Recorded each one in your book.
Psalm 56:8

God never forgets our sorrows.

Tears In A Mixed Media BottleArtwork By:  JoDee Luna

Book Of The Week – It Had To Be You

It Had To Be You

Mother To Daughter Quote From Book

My prayer is that you would believe
God has a good story for you, too.
Because only then will you truly hear the voice of God,
Telling you what He told me years ago when He put you in my arms:

I will take delight in her.
I will rejoice over her with joyful song.

Zephaniah 3:17

Scandal Of Grace – Hillsong

This week – for Music Moves Me – I am sharing a new worship song.

If you have a song in your heart,
Why not share it with us at Music Moves Me?
This week’s theme is Anything Goes!

For more music and creative inspiration,
Please join us at this week’s Friendship Friday 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!
Judy Palmer
