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

    PS: Kindly remember a young girl Christiane. Her mother and my friend posted she’s in the hospital and that’s all I know, but God knows everything. My heart feels for her. Also, remember my BIL, Neal. He’s having additional treatment for prostate cancer. Thanks so much!
