I like the idea of Inspiration Monday.
Monday’s often get the short end of the stick
But they are fraught with potential!

    Thank you for featuring me this week. I love coming here on Mondays. I’m trying to finish up blogging through the Proverbs. I finished the study, but having time to blog is another story, and I took the Fall challenge, but gotta try to slip a Proverb in each week. THANKS again.

      Dear Marcie,

    Believe it or not that song has brought a tear to my eye. Isn’t it funny how just one song could just make you feel so emotional. My son has been taken from me for a while & I probably won’t see him for maybe three years. This December it will be one year since I have not seen him. We write letters, but it’s just not enough. Thank you my dear friend. Thank you so much for playing such a beautiful song. God bless our friendship may it last a very long time, and God bless you!!! HUGS

      I’m sorry to hear about your son Marie – that must be SO difficult!
      I’m glad the song touched you in such a profound way.
      I always loved this song – so heartfelt, so emotional.
      Have an amazing week and God bless you too! 🙂

  16. Thank you so much for the party! Love your features!

  17. Colette S says:

    That Pumpkin Babka looks worth a try!
