Inspire Me Monday #273 – Week Of March 26, 2017

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

    I don’t care who sings it or how this song always gives me chills and makes me think. Thanks you for sharing such a meaningful and emotional song. Have a great week and be safe, thankful and healthy and hold on to your happiness. Big hugs…. my friend.

  5. Helen says:

  6. Happy Monday! What lovely features, especially those pretty Easter eggs! This week I’ve shared a very popular recipe from my blog – Banana and Chia Seed Muffins. They are tasty and healthy too! Have a lovely week ahead, and thank you so much for hosting.

  7. Ramona,

    Thank you for sharing such a beautiful song this morning. It’s just what I needed. The past couple of weeks has been really hard. There’s much turmoil in DS’s life and while I feel some better about that situation, there are other things going on with him that troubles my spirit. I know God is in control and if I/we must shoulder the burden of being the “bad guys” that he is trying to pin on us then so be it. I’m confident in the end after the storm passes and the sky is clear then things will be better. Please keep DH in prayer. He had eye surgery this past Thursday to re-attach the retina in his left eye. He’s doing well this morning & is able to return to work. Probably in six months, he’ll need cataract surgery on that eye. One concern we have is that retina detachment can reoccur in the same eye and this might happen in the other eye at some point due to his severe near-sightedness. I appreciate everyone’s prayers in all these things. God bless! Thanks for sharing such wonderful inspiration at the start of the week. I always look forward to seeing how others might spur my imagination and to encourage my creativity. Have an awesome week, my friend!

      Dear Cathy,

      I’m glad the song inspired you and I am praying for you and your family. I pray not only for a successful surgery and recovery for your husband and healing and restoration in his eyes and for restoration in the situation involving your son, but also that you will experience the peace and presence of God throughout these trying times. God bless you too!
