Enjoying Inspiration

Where does your inspiration come from? Where do you get your strength, the deepening of faith or courage, the means of building a better life? Seems there are so many voices calling to us- shouting at us – pushing and pulling for our attention.

This morning, I’ve been thinking about all that noise. All the pop-ups, so to speak, that vie for my attention – my thoughts- my emotions. Because I needed to quiet all that noise inside, I did what I often do [aside form prayer] and took to the Internet. Finding the right quotes and videos brought that sweet quiet to my mind and sunshine to the heart. So I wanted to share with you.

You Are Amazing

You Are Amazing

Each of us wants to be the best we can be. We want to build successful lives and help others. We want to find joy and shed the shackles of our annoying weaknesses. We want to make the world a better place, and that starts by making a better ‘us’.  We really are amazing. We just tend to forget that.

And some days are not as easy as others. Some moments bring heartache or darkness or questions that are hard to answer.

Creating A Life of Joy

Creating A Life of Joy

With the ups and downs, the imperfections and traits that may cause us sadness – even, for some self-hatred, there is a better way. With it comes the letting go of So Much Ugliness or Fear or Sorrow. And instead, we find Beauty and Joy and Goodness.

Here are a few things that bring perspective. When I’m having a bit of a tough time, these kinds of helps are heaven sent. I hope it helps you, or someone you love, also!

Choose a Good Plan

Choose a Good Plan

Most of you have seen this fellow before. I return to watch him on occasion. Because he always inspires me and really does help put my own issues into a better perspective. What an inspiration!

Oh the Good We Can Do If We Believe

One thing that almost always helps me feel better? Music. The other day I came across this video and chose to spend a couple of minutes watching. I’m so glad I did… These young men are really good! Better though, is the lesson I could apply. Having only been a ‘group’ for a month, their ability to work together was tremendous. It reminded me that, when we want to, we can work together  and create beautiful things in a very short time. Using our individual gifts and sharing together with the next person’s, we can create – I’m being metaphorical here – beautiful music. In reality, we can do that in all sorts of wonderful ways.  Take a listen:

Good Music and Working Together

Now, there are some times when I can’t wait to get down on my knees and offer a prayer. But I really don’t know quite what to say. That’s when I need to remember that He already knows what I need. I can just let all the feelings and words tumble out, over one another, knowing my Father in Heaven knows just what I’m trying to say – even when I don’t. There is great security and peace in the knowing. And inspiration comes.

God Hears Your Heart

God Hears Your Heart

Often, my inspiration comes from my family members, from good neighbors and friends. I can’t even count all the kindnesses that have been extended to me and my family by caring friends. I will forever feel indebted for calls, notes, food, prayers, Just The Right little gift that seems heaven- sent. I suppose, in real terms, it was.  One of my children- or grandchildren – might sometimes say exactly the right thing I needed to hear, or share a photo via text that lifts my spirits… or causes me to laugh out loud. Laughter, after all, really is a good medicine!

Laugh Breathe Smile

Laugh Breathe Love

Maybe it’s must my imagination, but laughing together seems to bind us. I love my husband even more for all the laughter we share. It’s a good gift!

So – wherever you find your inspiration, I’m grateful. In a world with much beauty but a lot of Hard, we should grab it wherever we can. And celebrate it. And grow it. It seems to grow the goodness in us.

And goodness matters.

Unless you live in an area of the world where there are no seasons, we hope you'll enjoy a few pictures of Autumn- a time of preparation for Mother Nature resting, of gathering the last of crops, of the array of colors that only autumn cal bring us. Mother Nature is GOOD! (Well... except for those scary & difficult storms, etc that make their way to locations where some of you live. God bless you!) ... See MoreSee Less
