Prayer Corner

How To Prepare Your Heart For Prayer

This week, I’d like to leave you with a few inspirational articles
On the power of prayer.

If there’s one thing that I’ve learned in life, it is this:

Prayer can accomplish what people cannot.

Marie has written a wonderful article on
How To Prepare Your Heart For Prayer and
Laura provides guidance for those of us who are
Praying For & Forgiving Those Who Have Hurt Us.

I wish you a peaceful and power-packed week!

Music To Inspire You

Welcome to Music Moves Me!
This week our challenge is to share
Songs That Easily Gets Stuck In Your Head”!

Did you know that there’s actually a term for that phenomena?
They’re called earworms, and at least 98% of the population have
Experienced an earworm at least once in their lives!

Earworms frequently have catchy tunes and repetitive phrases.
You don’t always like the songs
(Although those are the worst kind to get stuck in you mind!)
Advertising jingles and TV theme songs frequently stick!

Today’s earworm received the dubious honor of being named
One of the worst songs of all time –
But it’s also a record-breaking ditty that put the singer on the map!
This song managed to worm it’s way
Into the heart of millions of record collectors across the globe
And got listeners moving and grooving when it was released!

What songs have gotten stuck in your head?
Share your experiences in the comments!

Talent is timeless.

I like the idea of Inspiration Monday.
Monday’s often get the short end of the stick
