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

      This is one of my favorites Arnoldo – Robin is SO talented!
      Here’s a little secret for you:
      I have several more awesome giveaways coming up for my creative friends in the near future (think devotional coloring books, coloring Bibles and journaling Bibles) so stay tuned – I can’t wait to share! 🙂

  13. Bernadette says:

    Thank you for sharing Ophelia’s story! Her brother Hamlet, always much more reluctant, has caught up and even surpassed his sister in some ways. It’s like a miracle when this happens.
