Be A Blessing To Others

Blessing Quote

Happy February dear friends!
Although February is the shortest month of the calendar year,
It’s the perfect time to think about the small ways we can make a
Big impact on the people that God has place in our lives!


One blogger who left an indelible impression
On my heart this week was Pamela Kuhn with her
New blog, Sheltered Postmarked.

The purpose of this website is to encourage others
To join her in continuing her mother’s legacy of
Sending cards and letters filled with love, cheer and encouragement
To those in need and to count your postmarks!

The link takes you to the first post on Pamela’s blog –
I encourage you to follow the entire thread –
And if you feel moved to do so,
Consider joining her in this fabulous project!

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

    Thank you so so much for the feature of How I Bullet Journal in my planner. I’m so excited to be able to offer planning ideas that help others out and a coupon code for 10% off a Plum Paper Planner purchase. It was such fun and a lot of effort to write the post and it’s so nice of you to recognize it with a feature!! Thanks for another great linkup! Have a great week!

  4. I LOVE the quote about being a blessing to others that you opened your post with. Is it copyright free, so that I can use it in my art journal to feature in one of my posts? Blessings!

    Not sure if you could pass this on to Pam Kuhn… but I tried several times to comment on her new blog. It keeps saying “publishing” but then comes back up and refuses to go through. I don’t see an email address on her blog…. Momentarily I saw something to check about not being a robot, but it disappeared before I could check it. This may be keeping her from getting other comments too…

      Hi Pam,

      Sorry that you’re having trouble commenting on her blog – perhaps you could try reaching her through one of her social media accounts or try connecting on a different browser?

  8. Thanks for hosting! Hope you have an amazing week 🙂
