creating with spirit & enthusiasm…often with great results

Sunday Inspiration!

the Lion Chaser’s Manifesto by Mark Batterson

Quit living as if the purpose of life is to arrive safely at death. Set God-sized goals. Pursue God-ordained passions. Go after a dream that is destined to fail without divine intervention. Keep asking questions. Keep making mistakes. Keep seeking God. Stop pointing out problems and become part of the solution. Stop repeating the past and start creating the future. Stop playing it safe and start taking risks. Expand your horizons. Accumulate experiences. Consider the lilies. Enjoy the journey. Find every excuse you can to celebrate everything you can. Live like today is the first day and last day of your life. Don’t let what’s wrong with you keep you from worshipping what’s right with God. Burn sinful bridges. Blaze a new trail. Criticize by creating. Worry less about what people think and more about what God thinks. Don’t try to be who you’re not. Be yourself. Laugh at yourself. Quit holding out. Quit holding back. Quit running away. Chase the lion!

#12 was chosen by Mr T as the winner for The Twelve Teas of Friendship.

Jenny! That makes you the winner!…w/Relaxation!

Jenny & I have become friends through this community.  She lives in Australia and she actually found me last year when she was searching the internet for soldered charms (at least I think that’s how she found me).  She has a fabulous sewing business, life story, family and life in Australia.  Go visit her and say, “Hi”.

my favorite comment was from my daughter w/[fond]memories!   …makes me smile just thinking of them~
