Southern Inspiration

Today, I’m participating in the Miracle Makeover Party! Read the details at the bottom of the post and start commenting! Thank you to Guideposts Magazine for bringing us the video of Colette and her miracle makeover. The link to see the video is at the bottom of this post.

Colette’s story is inspiring. Many things inspire us in life. Special people, the song of a bird, rainbows, a refreshing breeze – all of these remind us who we are and Whose we are. They remind us of our Creator and our salvation! Praise God From Whom All Blessings Flow!

As many of you know, I lost my beloved Grandpa last Friday. He inspires me to live life well and fully.

I lost my father in 1992. I’m inspired by him to care about people and to let them know that I care.

I am very fortunate to still have my mother. She inspires me to put my heart in to everything I do, whether it is teaching a class, working with clients, making dinner or setting a table – give it your all and do it well.

I am also inspired by my husband. He inspires me to be committed and he makes me laugh.

I could go on and and on about all the inspiration in my life – sisters, brother, nieces and a nephew, a bonus father and on, and on it goes.

Today, I’m inspired by a cool morning after so many hot, hot summer days! What inspires you today?
