Fresh Year, Fresh Start to my blog! I am so grateful to Kristi and all of the bloggers who hosted the 3 week series of Fresh Year, Fresh Start! I was blessed by all of their posts and enjoyed participating, and I am so excited about the blog makeover that I won! Jo-Lynne did great work! You can see her link on the side of my blog, and you can go to the link at the bottom of this post for Fresh Year, Fresh Start to see all of the posts for that series.

The Friend Makin' Monday question for this week is What inspires you? What inspires me is most definitely God, His Word, and all of His Creation, including my family and my students.
Beth Moore definitely inspired me and many others to scripture memory this past year and to continue on.

This month, I am working on 3 passages together, since I chose Believe as my theme word for the year.
Isaiah 26:3Holman CSB
You will keep in perfect peace the mind that is dependent on You, for it is trusting in You.
I Peter 1:8-9NIV
Though you have not seen Him, you love Him;
and even though you do not see Him now,
you believe in Him, and are filled with an
inexpressible and glorious joy,
for you are receiving the goal of your faith,
the salvation of your soul.
Psalm 119:66
Teach me knowledge and good judgement,
for I believe in your commands.
Each of the posts in the Fresh Year, Fresh Start series inspired me. Go to the link below to read them and to find each of the blogs.
What inspires you right now? Head over to Amber's to join in. (after leaving me a comment, please.)


  1. Great post. I memorized Isaiah 26:3 a few years ago, but I need to focus on it again.

  2. Great post! I follow Beth's blog too.

  3. Sandy, what a beautiful look for your sweet new blog!! Gorgeous!

    BELIEVE, this has become my mantra in the last couple of years, to simply BELIEVE God, take Him at His word, to TRUST Him. His best is what He is after in us, through us and for us.

    Thank you for the sweetness of your heart.
