morning invitations * gratitude . . . & the giveaways !!

Whew!  What a ride this 31 day excursion has turned out to be!

I'm just plain grateful for every single moment of this series ... especially for the dialogue with you after each post.  For us bloggers, that's always the whipped cream and the cherry on top of whatever we're serving up.

You guys have brought so much to the table as we've wrestled with what our mornings could look like!  The daily conversations have been so inspiring, haven't they?  I've come away having learned so much from your stories, your brainstorms, your life lessons.

A special thanks to Emily Freeman for her encouraging shout-out at the beginning of the month ... she took my breath away, pure and simple ... and I loved welcoming you, her readers, as you've gathered with this little community here!

The hands down favorite post, based on hits and the conversation that followed?  It was this one!

And don't leave til you check out Victor's just-too-funny responses to this week's worksheet!


Congratulations to the 4 winners of a FREE 30 minute phone coaching session!  They'll be rolling up their sleeves with me, collaborating on fresh ways to live out their very personal morning invitations!

To claim your session, please email me at
and we'll set up a time for our 1 - 1 conversation.

Didn't win?  Not to worry ... 
look for more FREE coaching opportunites coming 'round the bend!

Can't wait?
  Contact me about the possibilities of working together.
I'd love to connect with you on that level!

Good Morning! Hope you find lots of reasons to dance today!

Loved the excerpt from your journal. Thank you for allowing us a glimpse of your conversation with the love of your life.
Blessings, Sweet Friend!

Hi Linda, it is lovely soul searching list. A lot of work for me on keeping Bible reading plans.
Thank you for today's reflection.
God bless

Good to find this today. I wrote about aging today too as we celebrate our 38th anniversary today. I especially appreciate your reminders of the care of our physical selves being part of the whole and not to be neglected. Thank you, Linda.


Looking forward to continuing to do community with you ~


    KNOCK me over with a feather!!!!
    Made my day!
    Blessings, Friend!

    1. Get the feather, girlfriend! You sure are a winner!

      Be in touch, ok?



  2. Congrats Lulu on being a winner. So happy for you and the other three winners - Teresa, Ifeoma and Debby.

    Also I am so humbled and pleased to be mentioned in today's post. Thanx Linda. To celebrate I'll wear different colored socks today. It's green and red.

    I believe socks should be sold in threes rather than in pairs. This way you get a better chance to pull out two socks the same color from the drawer when you're in a hurry. Also, the manufacturers would sell 50% more socks this way. So everyone is a winner; including the four winners mentioned in this post if they wear socks.

    God bless.

    1. You're a great sport, Victor!

      Let's hear it for socks. Mine today are bright teal. I wear them proudly with my crocs.


  3. Yea, congratulations to the winners! and big kudos to you, Linda, for finishing strong! It's been a great series and I'm looking forward to catching up on the posts I missed and sitting down with those worksheets now that #write31days is over. Blessings, my friend!

    1. I'd love to hear how they work for you, June! Congrats for making it through the month ... and for consistently putting out solid, heavy duty, uplifting material. I praise God for your faithfulness to His Word.

      Blessings and rest ...

  4. We made it, Linda!!! Woo-hoo! 31 days seemed like a long time at first but it has gone by quickly after all. I enjoyed your series!

    1. Can you believe that it's just about November? The holidays are right around the corner ... and yet there's days that still feel like summer.

      I love it!


  5. I really enjoyed your morning invitations. Very nice series.

  6. Thanks! It feels great to be a winner! And that Victor sure knows how to make us smile. :) I just sent you an email.

    1. You're a winner alright, Teresa!

      Looking forward to connecting with ya'!


  7. Yayayahhhhh!!!!
    I am dancing on my head and my daughter is showering me with kisses too!
