I’m Back and I’m Married!!

Hello Inspired Friends!  I’m sorry I haven’t blogged in forever.  I didn’t plan on going on a blogging break for so long.  It all just sort of happened!  You may remember me talking about being engaged and wanting to get married this year.  We hadn’t set a date yet, but I had it in my heart that I wanted to get married on the anniversary of when we first met.  So much stuff was going on over the Winter, and then my I had some graphic design work I was doing, among other things.  I just didn’t know if I could pull it off.  Of course you may have guessed by the title that I did!  We set the date officially back in April some time and then I worked … Continue Reading

The Open Heart Attracts Miracles – Five Minute Friday

Open Heart Affirmation by Rebekah

I’m linking up with the Five Minute Friday Community today to write on the word of the week as usual.   Because I am working on my poetry books, I won’t be writing today’s post in poetry form (but I did read a poem by Walt Whitman in today’s Poetic Friday Podcast).   Today I’m free flow writing unfiltered and straight from the heart.  The word is OPEN.  When I hear that word, the next word I think of is heart.  I think of both the difficulties we face when having open hearts, and the miracles.  The miracles always trump the difficulties.  I thought I’d write on how the open heart attracts miracles today!         Years ago I probably would have said that the open heart attracts drama … Continue Reading

Everyday Miracles-God Sent Me a Heart!

God loves us quote

Sometimes people want to know where my joy despite the tough stuff comes from.  Why am I so perky?  How do such serendipitous things find their way to me? etc.  It really is because of the presence of God in my life.  This is part of my testimony and I know it’s something that not everyone relates to, but I have to be authentically me.  I experience little everyday miracles frequently, and I know that is because of 1. God’s love & grace and 2. My awareness of them.  I am willing and open to receiving them,  noticing them, hunting for them (being a blessings hunter, which you can read more about that on my website’s About page), asking God for them, thanking God for them, and making sure I … Continue Reading

Introducing Warm Words of Wisdom (from my heart to yours)

Quotes by We Live Inspired

Today I am bringing you something new!  If you aren’t yet part of the We Live Inspired Facebook community, you haven’t seen a new feature I started recently called “Warm Words of Wisdom (from my ♥ to yours)” ©.  It’s where I share wisdom that I have either learned from my own experiences or that is inspired at that moment by the Holy Spirit speaking to my heart.  Ironically, an author I really enjoy (Holley Gerth) has started something called “Coffee for your Heart Wednesday” in which we bloggers are to write an encouraging post for our readers.  Since encouragement is what I do here anyway, and I just happened to start that new feature on Facebook-I thought this was perfect!  I hope you will enjoy this new feature :D. The words … Continue Reading

The Weekend We Got Snowed In- A Cozy Little Glimpse of My Town and Life

I can scarcely believe the new year is here!  Today I am inspired by cozy little Winter scenes and freshly fallen snow.  Do you love it too?  As I sit here writing, a cold wind is howling outside my bedroom window.  The snow is getting deeper and it seems as though a blizzard is upon us.  Living in Michigan I am no stranger to snow, but this year is different. The high temps for the day are going to be in the negatives (around a -2 degrees F) with lows of -15!  If the snow keeps piling up, I would not be surprised if we got over a foot of it! I am not complaining one bit.  I actually sort of like being cozied up inside with a blizzard a … Continue Reading

Angels Among Us-On Being an Angel to Your Fellow Man

With the holiday Season upon us, our hearts are often filled with love and goodwill towards our fellow man.  To me, Living Inspired means Living this way year round.  Even in my own toughest times in life, reaching out to help others made a profound impact (lifting my own spirits as well).  When we are putting an energy of love out there, we are in turn going to attract love and kindness unto ourselves. This is where true miracles happen!  Today’s inspiration is a true story that happened to me (and my family) a month ago.  It is a story of goodwill, kindness, love, and strangers. **Make sure to watch the YouTube video at the end of this, as it goes with my story and I think it will touch … Continue Reading

The Pearable-or What a Bucket of Fruit Taught Me About Life

Who knew that my latest inspiration would come from a bucket of fruit?  (This is what I am talking about when I say “living inspired” guys..there is SO much inspiration around us.)  Seemingly mundane, everyday life can provide Life Lessons. Wisdom. Truth.  AND a sense of Fun.  We just have to Open our eyes, our hearts, and Awaken our senses.  There is a story to tell in every day life.  YOU have a story.  I have a story.  And-today a piece of fruit has a story.  😀  I call this story “The Pearable.”  (a special thanks to a woman in my writing class named Violet Harlow for thinking of this brilliant pun when I was recalling this story to her as a regular parable).       If you read my last … Continue Reading

Five Minute Friday- The Truth About Me

It’s Five Minute Friday, in which I typically bring you inspiring poetry (mostly) written in 5 minutes.  Today is different though.  This is what Lisa Jo wanted us to write about today: “So our word for Five Minute Friday this week? Let’s make it: TRUE. Because I need your true stories. Just like I hope you need mine. ”  Click the word true to read other people’s “truths” today!   Everything I write here at We Live Inspired is true, but I try to bring you the positive sides of life and how I create a Joy-FULL, happy existence, so that you too can live joy filled..right where you are at in life.   With that being said, I don’t “complain” much about what life can really be like for … Continue Reading

My 1 Year Blogiversary- How We Live Inspired Came to Be!

Today is my 1 year Blogiversary and for the rest of July I have some fun things to share with you to celebrate!  1 year ago today (July 23, 2012), I wrote my first 2 part blog post called To Everything There is a Season.  It was a story in loss and in miracles.  A story that inspired me to finally buckle down and create my own website; something I had been dreaming of doing for years in hopes of also inspiring others in some way.  I thought for my anniversary today I would take you back in time and talk about what was going on around the time I started my blog, and some reasons why I created We Live Inspired!  I will also be doing 2 giveaways to celebrate … Continue Reading
