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

    Beautiful songs I enjoyed them 🙂

    Have a very happy Christmas Ramona 🙂

  6. I always enjoy Amy Grant’s earlier stuff, especially Breath of Heaven – so beautiful! I haven’t heard it in years, so it was a welcome treat this morning filled with tenderness. Your second song choice is new-to-me. Have a joyous Christmas week, my friend as we celebrate the true meaning of the season – the arrival of the Savior of the world in the form of a little baby. He was born to be killed for you and me. May God bless you and yours!
