Inspirational Writing for August 17, 2018

Most of the things that guide us happen early in life. As we get older, those things may become challenged or blurred. Whether you change at that point or not, be careful what controls your life doesn’t make you less loving, compassionate, or forget where you came from.

Inspirational Writing for August 16, 2018

A memory is the capturing of a moment in our life that touched our heart, changed our lives, or brought us closer to those we love. It’s sometimes all we have left when all that’s left is us.

Dandridge Mercantile -- our latest store

Owners Tracey Bommarito and Sue McCall met each other several years ago and bonded working on Santa shops, art projects, and later on, Sweet Repeats (Tracey’s twice a year children’s consignment shop). It was during the preparations for Sweet Repeats that they visualized the top floor of the old Gass building in historic downtown Dandridge as a shop where they would carry only items handmade or repurposed in Tennessee and occasionally, the surrounding states. A one stop shop for one of a kind items you won’t find anywhere else!

 
In addition to their unique crafts and home decor, they sought out books by Tennessee authors. As of August 9, 2018, the store is carrying about 70 titles by members of the Authors Guild of Tennessee.  All of the writers live in East Tennessee where some of their books are set. The genres include Southern Fiction, mysteries, fantasy, inspirational works, memoirs, historical, humorous essays, Christian fiction and non-fiction, and childrens books. 
 
Drop by and shop the wide-ranging selection for your reading pleasure or to purchase as gifts for family and friends.

Inspirational Writing for August 15, 2018

Getting mad about something just to prove a point only creates more problems that you’ll have to apologize for later. It’s hard enough sometimes to explain why you’re mad, but just to prove a point is impossible to justify to anyone.

Inspirational Writing for August 14, 2018

In life, every great success begins with a challenge. Don’t be dissuaded by the difficulty of something or the amount of time it will take to accomplish it. Perseverance and determination are the two strong legs that every great success stands on.

Inspirational Writing for August 13, 2018

A smart person can tell you how something works. An intelligent person can tell you why it works. But, an experienced person can tell you if it will work. When you’re looking to get the best answer to what to do, go with the person who's doing the job now.

Inspirational Writing for August 12, 2018

I believe there will be sunshine following the rain that falls upon me. I believe there will be calmness following the strongest winds in my life. And, I believe I’m loved even when I feel unlovable. I know all of this because I believe in the One that does it all.

Inspirational Writing for August 11, 2018

Like a drive down a sunny country road, life takes us through moments of sunshine and dark shadows. Like this road, we never know what may be around the next bend. Don’t fear what life may have waiting for you. Rejoice in the sunshine today and deal with the rain tomorrow.

Inspirational Writing for August 10, 2018

Some of our greatest rewards in life are not the wealth we accumulated or the positions we ascended to. They’re the times we chose to love others unconditionally, to bring joy to their life, and to make memories that will keep them in our heart forever.

Inspirational Writing for August 9, 2018

In life, it’s not the physical touches that we remember the longest. It’s the things that touch our heart. What touches our skin slowly fade away, but what touches our heart may live forever. Every embrace brings us joy, but those things that touch our heart often bring us, love.

Inspirational Writing for August 8, 2018

Negativity breeds positive thinking. People who are too negative make others positive they don't want to be around them. Don’t let your negativity produce a positive feeling in those around you.

Inspirational Writing for August 6, 2018

Though we cannot always choose what will control our lives, those things we surround ourselves with have an impact. If we surround ourselves with happiness and joy or hate and ugliness, one will be stored away and leak out into our life. We emulate what we most see in life.

Inspirational Writing for August 5, 2018

The collective efforts of many hearts help God place miracles in our life. One person says something that touches our heart, another helps reinforce our faith, and another shows us love we desperately need. All these acts of grace prepare us to see God’s miracles in our life.

Inspirational Writing for August 4, 2018

For some people, the truth is hidden behind an unwillingness to accept it. Most people who know you, love you. They have nothing but your best interest in mind when they say things to you. Don’t let your pride or stubbornness keep you from hearing the truth.

There are people in our life that no matter what we say they always know our heart. These are the ones that believe in us most. There is nothing like old friends that never leave your heart. Inspired by Diane Crowe LeGuillon

Inspirational Writing for August 2, 2018

Sometimes, what we think we need in life will be around the next corner. We keep looking, hoping we will find exactly what we need. That may be the case, but if you go around enough corners it brings you back to where you started and you realize its where you belonged all along.

Inspirational Writing for August 1, 2018

Sometimes, life doesn’t seem fair. We suffer losses, disappointments, and problems that never seem to go away. We seem to gain today and lose it tomorrow. Life is all about perspective. Don’t look at what goes wrong, but what goes right. Your joys always outnumber your problems.

Inspirational Writing for July 31, 2018

One of our greatest strengths in life is realizing what’s not our problem. It’s okay to help, but it’s not necessary to inherit the problem.

Inspirational Writing for July 30, 2018

If we could rewind time, we would bring back those we’ve lost and moments we cherish from our memories. We could correct mistakes and make amends where we know we were wrong. Sadly, we can’t do this, but we can learn to never waste a moment in life and cherish those we love.

Thanks, Sue. Cody does have the independence of a cat, but he doesn't know what a cat is. I'm glad you've channeled the same animal thoughts I have. Makes me feel a lot less crazy.

Sound absolutely adorable. I used to do that with my cats. In fact your dog sounds mighty cat-like. Not sure Cody would like that comparison.

Thank you so much, Tilmer. I'm especially pleased you felt the protagonists and antagonists were well-developed as I wanted the story to be character-driven. Appreciate your kind words and the caveat regarding younger readers.
