It is a spiritual truth that our love for and praise of others

will improve our own self-image. It will rub off on us, so to speak.

An improved self-image diminishes whatever bad

qualities one has imagined.

Did you know?

We all have an opportunity to help one another as we help ourselves

grow in the self-love that is so necessary to the

successful living of each day.

Take some time today, before the demands overwhelm you, to weave your

connection to God. When the contact feels secure you will find you do not need

to wait for inspiration from another to forge ahead with your daily plans.

The inspiration will live within you, and it will beckon

you onward. Your way will be illuminated.

Brighten your life. Surround yourself with good honest happy people when possible.

You will feel any burdens be lifted. Many hopes can then become realities.

Look upward for the gift of inspiration




Through him you have confidence in God,

 who raised him from the dead and gave him glory,

so that your faith and hope are in God.

1 Peter 1:21

Thank you for joining me today and I hope you will return tomorrow.

It is STILL raining here in Ohio. I keep watching for the sun.

I guess that is what inspired me to create a rainy page today.


Enjoy this day - it is a gift - just simply open it. Take care and be

safe in always being aware of everything and everyone around you.
