Inspired by… {Into the Word Wednesday}

This week’s style is a little different.  Becky from Tales of Beauty for Ashes and I are sharing some highlights of our favorite posts from the past few weeks.  We’ve been so inspired by you that we wanted to say thank you!


The first post I want to share with you is by Joanna over at Jo Finds Joy.  Her post is short, sweet, and to the point.  I completely love that.  It’s about a topic I’ve posted about before too.  She highlights a verse that I stand on almost daily.  Joanna,  I can totally identify with your post.  It’s absolutely true.  We must go to Him.  We must rest.  

(I’m not at all trying to highlight this but just in case you are like me and can’t stand when someone mentions another post, the one I’m referring to is here.)


Another post I want to share is from Crystal over at Serving Joyfully.  She posted this for Into the Word Wednesday back on September 11th.  It has stuck with me all this time. 

Like Crystal, I am a new blogger.  I haven’t been around the seven circles of blogdom (are there 7?) therefore I don’t know everyone.  I don’t know all the rules.  I don’t yet have a following like some of you.  I have at times felt as though everyone knows everyone else!  Everyone supports everyone else.  I see sponsorship ads on all the blogs I read from other blogs I read.  Oh, how I wish I had the money to put my button all over the place.  I see comments galore on other posts while perhaps seeing one or two on mine.  Even though I write to the beat of my own drum, for some reason I wanted to be ‘wanted.’ 

I love when Crystal said ‘sometimes the things we find offensive or hurtful aren’t meant to be so because sometimes there are motivations for someone’s actions or inactions that have absolutely nothing to do with me.‘ 

This is SO true.  Since I read her post, I’m being the best ‘me’ I can be.  I comment when I feel led to do so for others.  I’m okay if weeks go by with no comments and no new followers.  Thank you Crystal for sharing this!!

    Wow! Thanks so much for sharing my post, and for sharing your thoughts as well! I have had those same feelings–that everyone else is in the “in” crowd and I’m not. This is especially true right now as I prepare to go to the Allume Conference at the end of this month. Have you seen the people who attend/speak at that conference? BIG blogging names…it’s like the “in” crowd exploded…lol. And I’m not in it, but I’m going to be in the midst of it (through a total GOD thing that made it possible for me to go). It’s very daunting to feel like an “outsider” but I know God will get me through and help me get out of it what I need to.

    Also, I highly recommend linking up to other linky-parties. I’m actually starting one on my blog this Thursday, but I have a HUGE list of linky parties on my blog here: (no, I don’t like to all of them!) I actually don’t have yours included but will certainly add it. Anyway, even Courtney from Women Living Well said that’s a big part of how she got started with her blog.

    Blessings to you!

    • Yep. There is definitely no better way to go than linking up. It’s so much fun. I try to do that on a weekly basis. Some weeks are busier than others. That will be really fun! I’ve never heard of Allume but I bet it’s amazing. There are so many blogger events that I’ve run across. It’s wild! We aren’t in Kansas any more!!

    Thanks, Kelly! (And notice the picture… I made it last night… I’m getting closer to making a button lol!!)

  • Joanna Caffrey says:

    I’m so glad you were able to identify with my post! I hope you have a lovely wednesday :)

  • Kendra @ A Proverbs 31 Wife says:

    Ah, dear Kelly, please know that even though I almost never leave comments, I read every single post that shows up in my inbox. I just read way to many blogs to leave every one a comment. :)

    • Kelly says:

      Oh Kendra! I know it because I do the same. I just read, read, read and can’t always comment. Or someone has already said what I am feeling. I know people are reading!!
