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

  14. Let There Be On Earth is a wonderful idea! Unfortunately, with liberals fueling the hatred flame then this isn’t going to happen until we meet on the other side of the pearly gates. However, I do love the encouragement and inspiration of your song pick today. We all need to aspire toward a peaceful world. Thanks for hitting the dance floor with the 4M crew and I love all the wonderful ideas found here each week!
