Arise and Shine!


“Arise and Shine” coffee/tea mug

Good morning, friends. Arise and Shine! I hope you’re enjoying a sunny day, no matter the weather.

I love this Arise and Shine design. It just seems to make me want to start the day with vigor. If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you’ll notice that most of the lovely photos that have accompanied my articles here on the Leisure Lane blog over the years are now available on products for you to enjoy. It was a dream of mine for you (and me) to enjoy these lovely photos in your own home – everyday.

Another intent of mine has always been to encourage, motivate, and inspire others to be their best – to grow in confidence, knowing that their total well-being is supported by someone. The journey is a lifetime, and sometimes arduous – so many steps back along with the steps forward – but it should be sprayed with joy knowing that progress is being made. That’s how I look at it. Being able to show my authentic self after so many years of hiding who I really was at a struggling job is one of the most liberating things God has done for me. It was like he said, “You don’t have to start all over, my dear one…we’ll just brush off some of the dust on your soul and continue on.” What a gift to know I am so important to the LORD, the one who flung the Universe into existence.

So, Arise and Shine and let your light shine through – there’s no better day than today!

Well, I hope you enjoyed your visit here today, and you found something to inspire and uplift you. If you have, share it with someone else – spread the positive aspects of everything about you, and…

Until next time, may happy days abound!

Kare and Mare: In with the New

Kare and Mare 39Ahh…new things can really make a big difference.  Now Mare, her rug, and her new vacuum cleaner are all in good shape.  Which reminds me…I really need to vacuum.

Until next time, may happy days abound!
