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

    Thank you for hosting, great way to start a new week!!
    I have shared some gardening tips and professional tips on Pedicures at home.
    Have a wonderful week!!

  3. I had a teal Smith-Corona typewriter that saw me through the rigors of typing my papers throughout college. I don’t miss all the white out and re-typing of pages with errors, but have a certain nostalgia for a simpler time.

  9. Ramona,

    It’s always such fun to stop by your place first thing Monday mornings to see how I might be inspired by fellow bloggers you either feature or share with you. The DIY tennis shoe design looks like a fun project. I love your mewsic choice. It’s a feel-good, lift my mood to face this day song. Thanks for joining the 4M on the dance floor. Have a blessed week, my friend!

  10. Steven Curtis Chapman is aging very gracefully in the world of Christian Music. He is singing about his life, where he is and not about where is relationship with Christ was 25 years ago. He’s not going out of his way to try to make himself hip and relevant but he is creating music that is timeless. Love this song and the artist. Thank you for sharing it with us.

    I’ve never heard this tune before nor do I know the singer.. but I was listening to the tune and in my mind’s eye it sounded like a young man, but when I looked at the singer I would’ve never have guessed it looked like this gentleman. Oh well, such is life… Have a great rockin’ week my friend. Thanks for stoppin’ by!

  16. What a gorgeous bird photo! The inspirations are lovely. Thank you!
