Photo & Design By Create With Joy

This week, as we celebrate Independence Day, enjoy the freedoms and liberties that our forefathers fought so hard to obtain for us and pray for our brothers and sisters who do not yet enjoy the freedoms that we take for granted and for those who are fighting on their behalf.

Have a safe and joyful holiday weekend!

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
