Valentines Day Flowers and a Movie

Valentines Day turned out to be quite special! Our daughters blessed and surprised us!  Our oldest daughter and our grandsons sent these beautiful tulips. I'm quite captivated by their beauty and fragrance. Thank you Jackie, Alex and Donavin!  Our youngest daughter Vanessa and Erik her boyfriend gave us chocolate and a movie called RED.  We laughed and relaxed and spent the night entertained as we munched on delicious chocolates!!  Thank you Vanessa and Erik!  It has been hectic, life can speed up on us at times but to stop and just relax together was marvalous.  It is so much fun to laugh!!

Devotion Pens of Praise
February 12, 2011

© Susan Marlene Kinney

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable, if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me or seem in me – put into practice.                             
 And the God of peace will be with you.
Philippians 4:8 & 9
Oh, to be truly inspired. To find our muse or motivation to write words which powerfully take hold of paper and ink and move something. Something like a heart or mind. Not just any mind but a mind or many minds that think with purpose and put into action that great idea or thought.
Inspirational change that enlarges our knowledge of the Lord and improves our behavior on earth is quite exciting. Ideas alone are only as valuable as the piece of paper they are written on; unless they are put to action and the ideas purpose is recognized and utilized.
Use your pen or computer keys this day, yes even this day, and inspire someone to reach inside to pull up a truthful idea. Enrich minds, infuse courage, and tickle the imagination for others to walk in the strength of an idea.
Remember whatever is true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent, or praiseworthy – write about it and live it too.
And the God of peace will be with you.
Now that is Inspiration!
