Inspiration Thursday

I like the themed and group activities that I see on the blogs.  Pretty, Happy, Funny, Real.  Friday Night Sew-In.  This Moment.  Weekend Reading.  Harvest Monday.  I've never really taken part in any of these, but I enjoy them every time I see them.  I used to really enjoy Rhonda's On My Mind Fridays which I did participate in as often as I could manage.  So, I've decided to try a themed post of my own.  Inspiration Thursday--a song, a quote, a book--something that inspired me recently that I think I should share with the world.  If you wish you could link back from your own blog or leave a comment telling me what inspiration you've found recently.

Better People - Xavier Rudd
People saving whales
And giving your thanks to our seas

My respect to the ones in the forest

Standing up for our old trees

Them giving food to the hungry
Hope to the needy

Giving life to a baby, giving care for free

'Cause there is freedom around us

We have everything we need and I will care for you
'Cause you care for me
And we all have opinions, some of them get through

But there's better people with more good to do, good to do
What I have could be a message

Or just some words from my heart

My respect to the ones making changes

For all the lives they'll give their all

Like giving food to the hungry
Hope to the needy

Giving life to a baby, giving care for free

'Cause there is freedom around us

We have everything we need and I will care for you
'Cause you cared for me
And we all have opinions, some of them get through

But there's better people with more good to do, good to do

When our world keeps spinning round and round it goes
Human Nature keeps spreading its disease

And our children keep growing up with
what they know
From what we teach and what they see

And so only a question of the time we have
And the lives that our children need

As they can only keep growing up with
what they know
through what we teach and what they see

Like giving food to the hungry
Giving hope to the needy
 

Giving life to a baby, giving care for free
'Cause there is freedom around us

We have everything we need and I will care for you
'Cause you care for me
We all have opinions, some of them get through

But there's better people with more good to do, good to do
Oh good to do

  2. Oh and the Montana ornaments measure 4.25" x 2.5". Strangely, even though they are small, they're quite relaxing to paint.

    1. Wow! You get so much detail in there I was thinking they must be bigger than that. You are amazing with that paint.

  3. Nice post. I never understood the On My Mind bit because if it were not on your mind, why and how would you write it. Besides, the first comment I ever posted on her blog was answered with a very caustic reply..."If you had ever read my blog, you would know that...." Yeah, I joined and unjoined the same day...so much for asking a question of a blogger...lol. Then, if you use "On My Mind," she demands you link back to her. I don't get it at all.

    I love your blog, even your compaint post.

    1. I'm sorry that was your experience with Rhonda and all. I've always found it a nice place to visit, but I don't always comment in any case. I'm glad you've enjoyed your time at my blog. : )

  4. Hello,
    You don't have to post this comment. I simply wanted to give you a recipe in return for the curried egg plant recipe I used from your blog.

    This lentil soup was in our morning paper today, I made it up as I had all of the ingredients, and my goodness is it ever good.

    I think you will enjoy it very much, here is the link to recipe
