Sunday Drive Round Up October 5, 2014



I haven’t worked on a Sunday Drive Round Up article so I thought it was past time that I did so. There are many interesting blogs out there and I am trying to carve out some time here to read more of them. I find it very interesting how you can find blogs on almost any subject that interests you.  So, I began my little Sunday drive by looking at articles related to the subject of writing. Since I am a writer, I often look to other writers and their inspirational and helpful articles:


From New3Creation Writing:

I am always encouraged by poets and inspirational writers and as I continued on my quest along the blogosphere I then came upon these inspirational and uplifting pieces:


From My Spiritual Breakfast:

From ForgottenMeadows:

From Source of Inspiration:

I also enjoy and am inspired by the work of artists and so I came across this beautiful blog:

Drawing and Photography:

From Maria Brinkley:

And there you have it, my latest and very belated Sunday Drive Roundup. I hope you find something here that is also an inspiration and an encouragement to you.

Once again, it is time to take a fun drive around the blogosphere and see what other bloggers are up to. So, to start off with, I went exploring for insightful posts about the art of writing and here are some helpful and interesting articles I discovered:

The Art of Writing

From Cristian Mihai I found this helpful article about finding your inner strength and writing for yourself. In another to words to write what you want to write about:

A Dose of Light Humor

Traveling further along, I also found a bit of humor along the way to brighten my day from a letter written to ‘Thing’.  I needed a little something to help me smile again. After all, laughter is often good medicine. This clever missive is written by Hugh’s News and Views:

Soothing Inspiration and Beautiful Music

And finally, I came across this gem of a post written by Meredith’s Musings about the true story of two ministers who sailed to America. In their eagerness to share along the way, they had to learn that salvation can never be earned. A beautiful hymn is also featured here which was soothing to my sometimes troubled and searching soul. It is a great post:

Finding hope and inspiration in art, spiritual healing, and in a geocaching adventure

Ah, it is another Sunday!! Time to reflect on good, caring, and loving God is. It is time to notice the beautiful day he granted me and how he liked to clothe me in warm sunshine. I need to take time to be more thankful and keep that sense of thankfulness inside of my heart.  It is also time to look back and reflect on some neat and uplifting blogs, I have noticed this past week:


To begin with, I really enjoy beautiful artwork and I found this lovely post:

I find that geocaching can take me on beautiful hikes to places that I would have never known about. Enjoy this adventurous tale of a geocaching team making their 700th find:
