A little Sunday Morning Encouragement...

Originally posted on MYSPACE (April 20, 2008)

Hey Everybody,

As you all know, I LOVE quotes.

Consider this blog the: "Why so glum, chum? You're fabulous!" edition of my favorite quotes. :) There's a great song by Fred Hammond featuring a singer named Pam Kenyon called, "I Anoint Myself" and it's all about telling yourself what God thinks about you. Reminding yourself that all will be well on those days, at those times, when you just don't feel it.

So my friends, on those days when you're feeling a little "less than" may these simple yet profound thoughts encourage you! Use them to "Remind" yourself! There's also some great inspirational quotes about following your dreams.

It's all good stuff, but this post is a little long, so pace yourself.

God Bless,
