An Inspiration to Bless Your Heart!

Oh, Dear Ones, tears are rolling down my face as I've just read such a wonderful and inspiring post by my sweet blogging friend, Laura at Decor to Adore. She has posted today a wonderful accomplishment - a graduation and her life story! Please go over and read Laura's story - you'll be blessed! I praise God for Laura who has overcome so many hardships in her life and is sharing her story with us today.

God bless you Laura and you have blessed my heart today and I'm sure you'll be the motivation and courage so many need to read about today. I'm so proud of you! :)

You are all a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

You Raise Me Up

When I am down and, oh my soul, so weary;
When troubles come and my heart burdened be;
Then, I am still and wait here in the silence,
Until you come and sit awhile with me.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up... To more than I can be.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up... To more than I can be.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up... To more than I can be.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up... To more than I can be.

You raise me up... To more than I can be.
