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!

  7. Ramona,

    It’s wonderful having you on the dance floor this morning. I love your contemporary Christian mewsic choices. Today’s is especially inspiring in remembrance of 9/11. I love these words….
    Out of the ashes
    Beauty will rise
    And we will dance among the ruins
    We will see it with our own eyes
    Out of these ashes
    Beauty will rise
    For we know joy is coming
    In the morning

    This is exactly what America did, we rose above the ashes mending lives, restoring hope, and rebuilding our future. The evil ones could not keep the “red, white, and blue” spirit down! God bless America!

    Thanks for sharing and hosting such fabulous inspiration at the start of each week. I love browsing through the link ups to see what moves me! Have a beautiful day, my friend!

  8. Thanks so much for featuring my post from last week, “15 Ways to Enhance Your Quiet Time.” Love the other features, too. I can’t wait to try Jenny’s slow cooker pork loin! Thanks for hosting and have a great week!

  9. Thank you for hosting, and have a great week!

  10. Alana says:

    The lyrics to this song are so beautiful – what we needed so much that day (as someone who wasn’t affected directly, but knows several people who lost friends, neighbors, and even a son – you can’t have grown up in New York City, as I did, without these kinds of connections) was the hope of something good coming out of that day.

  11. XmasDolly says:

    What a beautiful song! Thank you so much for sharing and I would like to take this time to thank you for being a friend and such a nice lady too for tomorrow is not promised! May God bless you & yours throughout your days!!!

  17. I’m listening to your song posted and I really like it. It’s new to me and I appreciate the introduction.

    It’s coming into my favorite season, Fall. And that means all things pumpkin! Thanks for featuring all the pumpkin links. I love pumpkin! So do my dogs. 🙂

    Something else I adore is the cover of the giveaway journal. That is such a cute cover!
