Inspiration and encouragement.

Sometimes you go in search of them…and sometimes they search for you.

I love sharing His inspiration and also receiving it from Him and others.  It is my hope that the scriptures and concepts shared here will edify your spirit and bring a bright burst of colorful inspiration to your day.

The photo-enhanced Spring-Summer or Fall-Winter Journals are an ongoing work.  These seasonal posts will bring a smile and a chuckle to your heart as I share thoughts and Scriptural truths revealed through unique moments of reflection and appreciating the lessons we may learn from the everyday world around us.


I hope your spirit will touch His in prayer and reflection, as you see a glimpse of His triumphs and persecutions around the world.

“I am also missing the speaking of honor, respect, appreciation and historical perspective that so often fills our national narrative on this day.The scripture that keeps coming to my mind this morning is, “It was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke a slavery.”  (Gal. 5:1)”

Quote to ponder: “We can relearn civility. We can remember that we can disagree without destroying the world around us.” Alveda King
