When I began blogging, it was my intent to post an inspirational thought each Monday. It would be my weekly meditation, and perhaps feed another’s spirit as well. I am inspired by the positive energy of my peers.

The negative energy in the world has become thick and oppressive. Social media has become a part of this dark, negative storm. There is an obvious universal need for more positive energy. And, we can all be part of this affirmative change. 

I believe we are meant to be lights in this world. If we allow our light to shine, we can see where we are going. It is then that we can begin to truly see each other clearly. Together, we can light up the entire world!

I hope you will join us. Please link up a positive quote, poem, song, or thought.  Add the Sparks badge to your post to invite others. Truly; the more, the merrier. Peace.

Please join us with your Sparks here:

  7. My most favorite "regift"......AND it's also the gift that keeps on giving if you give it with all your heart..........I'm hoping you, Bill and the kitties have a wonderful and special holiday together.

    Love, Pam (and Teddy too)

  11. We absolutely LOVE your Spark! With all the festivities (and Company) Mommy did not get the chance to help Queen Penelope with her spark this week. We will be back New Years!

  12. Annie,

    I'm sorry for not visiting before now. DH had an extended weekend which was awesome so I spent it with him entirely. I wasn't online much to say the least. I hope you and Bill had a lovely Christmas like we did. It was so relaxing to unwind with DH for the past 5-days. :) It's been rather cold so being indoors suited us purrfectly. We're under a nasty band of weather for the next 15 days, too. I know it's nothing compared to you, my northern friend but this is awful for a southern gal. :D Thanks for making the world a more positive place with your inspiration & encouragement each week. I'm delighted to share in this movement to making things better for myself and others. Have a blessed week and New Year, dearie! {{hugs}}

  13. Best and most important gift that can always be returned. :) Great photo ornament.

  14. You all are amazing! I missed this one due to all the holiday hoopla. I love the quote and think it's perfect for any time of year. It's a wonderful reminder of what's important during the holidays. Not gift....not decorations....just love.
