Yesterday's Inspire Me Thursday word was "ticket..." The image above is my response to the word. It is a devotional whose ribbon marker I had embellished with a peg doll from Goose Grease. I think we've all experienced lethargic mornings, or even mornings where all of a sudden, there's just this gigantic pang of fear blocking all energy flow. For some, it's mornings that are greeted with a mental list of to do that is the most debilitating. I am not a stranger to those, and I have been consciously making the effort to wake up an hour earlier than wht is required of me to jump out of bed, wash my face, brush my teeth, throw on clothes, prepare Momo for the day and jump in my car, heading for work. I've found that this extra hour is my ticket to an inspired day, my ticket to my sanity, owing to the extra time that I've carved out of my day to have a conversation with God. A bunch of books are on my bedside table, with at least three devotionals on hand. I am gifting a very nice lady with one such devotional, and I've given her Peggy, the bookmarker with it. She started life as a blank peg doll from here. I had glued a wider piece of ribbon to the book's original ribbon marker, and tied hand-painted, and hand-embossed Peggy onto it. I think she's hanging pretty snuggly, looking confident with that ribbon that looks like a chicly-wrapped scarf, don't you?
So, to all of you, a wish goes out for your own tickets to inspiring, confident, vibrant and joyful days ahead. Here's a tip: a little Peggy bookmarker to remind you to pick up that devotional, journal, or whatever you need to get to that space at the start of your days may help.
