Sunday Inspiration: A New Doorway

Helen Keller's Inspirational quote Welcome to the first Sunday Inspiration blog.  While during the past  two years I’ve thoroughly enjoyed finding poetry for you to enjoy on Sundays, I feel a need to branch out to other writings now. So while there will sometimes be poetry in this space, my Sunday blogs will broaden a bit to concentrate on illumination and encouragment.

Merriam-Webster calls “inspiration: “the action or power of moving the intellect or emotions.”  Many of us start or end our weeks in churches, where we receive inspiration to help us through the coming week or to help us make sense of the past one.  So many people have uttered or written so many wonderful things to help with that.  I look forward to finding and sharing those thoughts with you in the coming months.

I’ll be aided in this by my husband, who spent forty years in the Unitarian-Universalist ministry discovering myriad sources of inspiration and sharing them with the many people he worked with.  Who better than to inspire me?

I can’t think of a better quote to start with than Helen Keller’s, whose life was surely one of the most inspirational.  Are you pessimistic about upcoming events in your life, or will you struggle to find a way to use them to “sail to uncharted land?”

Let’s take that journey together.  Please feel free to share your thoughts by commenting here.

The lovely graphic with this quote comes from a website I discovered, The Quote Factory.  You can download their quotes and graphics as posters, so enjoy. You’ll be seeing many more of their quotes here, and I thank them for this valuable, uplifting resource.  

Don’t forget, too, that I have a board at Pinterest titled Wisdom of the Goddesses, which are thoughts the women who call themselves the Goddesses Anonymous  in my new series would find inspirational and helpful, and you will, too.  I’ll be adding these quotes to the board whenever I can.
