Fresh Hope “POWER” Notes #2

~More on Nanci J. Gravill’s new book Fresh Hope … Cleveland.

My wonderful book emphasizes ways you can save money but it also shares helpful ways you can feel good and enjoy more of your life. One of those ways is by choosing to think positive thoughts and by saying all the positive things you can think of ~ especially when your circumstances are challenging.

In the next few days I’ll be bringing you that I call “POWER” NOTES or THOUGHTS. They are good ways to renew your mind ~ because they are truly good things you can choose to think about!

Here’s another very “POWERFUL” thought or NOTE for you to digest. Enjoying reading Fresh Hope “POWER” Note #2 today!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

POWER NOTE #2

“People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.

If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.

If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.

The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway.

For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.” ~ Mother Teresa (www.goodreads.com)

Have a great weekend ~ and even if it rains, enjoy it anyway!

God Bless You!

Fresh Hope “POWER” NOTE #1

In the next couple of days I’ll be bringing you that I call “POWER” NOTES or THOUGHTS. They are good ways to renew your mind ~ because they are truly good things you can choose to think about!

Here’s my first NOTE to You 

POWER NOTE #1:

You are just as amazing as the people you most admire. Believe that. You are fearfully and wonderfully made!

Source: The Bible ~ Psalm 139:14

That was painless and the shortest post I’ve ever written! See you on Friday for another short but oh so meaningful POWER” NOTE!

God Bless You!

Guest Blogger: think spring!

~ More on Nanci J. Gravill’s new book Fresh Hope … Cleveland.

think spring!

My guest today is Ann Hollow. She is an independent design consultant here in Cleveland.  She recently spoke at my church. Ann’s ideas are simple, inexpensive, and creative.  All of these qualities are things that my book Fresh Hope … Cleveland embraces. The ideas here will help you reinvent your home this spring so you can enjoy your home and your life even more! Hurray!

~Spring Design Tips From Ann ~

We are creatures of habit who happen to love and need change — it’s good for the soul. However, what we look at daily can become so boring we don’t even know it. Look around your house, the inside, the outside, and think about a color you  absolutely love but don’t use because it is “too risky.”  A small project can be an amazing mood lifter reflecting your life, family, and passions.  Here are a few projects that will give you a “lift” this spring.

1. Paint the “inside” garage door a fabulous color. Try purple and use pink for the trim.

2. Paint the few steps going into your house the same color and stencil something fun on the face of the step.

3. Make a collage of your vacation pictures or those recent photos of family and friends that really make you smile. Put them in a guest bathroom. Or use the pictures of your kids sleeping or eating and put them up in a guest bathroom or anywhere else you’d like.

MORE DECORATING ADVISE:

If you love Christmas, turn your guest room into The Christmas Room all year round. Your guests will love it!

At least once a year, go through all of your things in your home and just put away what you don’t absolutely love. Clear your tables and walls and see what it’s like to have less and love it more.

Above everything else, know the message you want your home to give. Most of us desire a warm friendly and comfortable atmosphere. Remember, the most important gift you can give to your family and your guests is to be who you are. Your home should always reflect your own unique splendor! ~ANN

Thank you Ann for those great ideas!

God Bless You!

The Top 10 Reasons to Love “Fresh Hope … Cleveland” ~ #1

~ More on Nanci J. Gravill’s new book Fresh Hope … Cleveland.

On this beautiful spring morning, I’m sharing the greatest and the last reason in this series The Top 10 Reasons to Love Fresh Hope … Cleveland. Without a doubt it will be easy to see why this is reason #1.

Fresh Hope … Reason #1: The book shares the best resource for: Direction, Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Hope ~ all rolled together into an Abundant Life.

My communication’s manager tells me not to give away the farm. So that’s just a glass of milk. And let me tell you, all the other resources in the book are very important and helpful. However, if you don’t understand and take possession of this very important resource … Fresh Hope … Reason #1, you’ll be missing a lot in your life. It will be like no chocolate chips in your chocolate chip cookies ~ on a much larger scale. Without those chips, the cookies just aren’t that great and satisfying! Something is really missing.

Section IV of the book entitled Something More, gives you a very unique perspective on things ~ it explains this resource that is more important than anything for your life. Ever wonder why things happen or if there’s a better way to live? Do you find you want something more from life? You must read this section of the book. The title came from a poem I wrote ten years ago. In this section lies more hope than you could ever wish for ~ for your life!

If this has made you somewhat curious, you’ll have to purchase either an e-book or a printed copy. The e-book will be available the end of June and the printed version will be out around September 1st.

►Coming up next on my blog:

Friday, May 13: Guest Blogger on spring decorating!

May 17: Join me for some awesome “POWER” NOTES!

Late May or early June : New Series: Another Slice of Coconut Cream Pie

Make it a Great Day!

God Bless You!
