The Best Tips To Make Your Move Easier With Printable Checklist

This post was originally published in 2017. Today I’ve updated it with new information.

My friend is contemplating a move in the next year, and it made me remember all my moves.  I only vaguely remember my first move when my family moved from Mobile, Alabama to Oak Ridge, Tennessee.  I do remember being sad about leaving the only home I knew and my friends in the neighborhood. Everything I knew in my short 5 years was changing.  Once we drove to north Alabama from Mobile, the view from the car started looking different.  When we arrived in east Tennessee, I loved the mountains we drove through.  I had never seen mountains before.  Moving was exciting!

Free Floral Cross Printable for Easter

Since the beginning of Christianity, the cross has been the principal symbol of the Christian religion. It recalls the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ and the resurrection. This is important to remember, but the cross is a symbol of much more. The cross can be interpreted as a sign of hope, representing the forgiveness of sins and God’s reconciliation with man. It is a powerful symbol of divine love and salvation. The cross with the figure of the crucified Christ serves as a reminder of his sacrifice and his suffering. The cross without the figure, often referred to as “the Empty Cross”, symbolizes the resurrection. He is risen and is not there. It is time for joy in our divine gift.

Easter Blessings Printable

Sunday, April 17th is Easter. In celebrating the season this year, I’ve made an inspirational printable, Easter Blessings. Although I love bunnies and Easter eggs, I also know that the reason for the season is the resurrection of Jesus. Many of the symbols of the season are a celebration of new life. In the time before Easter which is known as Lent in some churches, I spend time reflecting on the miracle of life and all its blessings. I pray the Lord blesses you and keeps you in the palm of his hand.

Keep Kindness In Your Heart Printable

I like to do inspirational prints as it helps me stay focused on what is important in life.  The last two years have been crazy. It is amazing the irrational way some people act with so much anger.  I try to stay positive and centered, and I wish the same for you.  Today’s printable is on one of my favorite topics, Kindness.  I made it several years ago for my email subscribers.  Today I am sharing it with everyone.  I think all of us need a reminder to be kind. It costs nothing and can make a huge difference to someone else’s day.

Small Things Become Great Inspirational Printable

Today’s inspirational quote is from Mother Teresa of Calcutta (1910 to 1997). During her lifetime Mother Teresa became famous as the Catholic nun who dedicated her life to caring for the destitute and dying in the slums of Calcutta – now known as Kolkata. She set up soup kitchens, a leper colony, orphanages, and a home for the dying destitute. She treated the lepers, educated the poorest of the poor, and fed the homeless. She treated them like her family.

 

Her message to me was that you don’t have to do big or great things to help.

Small things become great when done with love.  

I love to surround myself with words and images that embrace positive attitudes and foster peace, love, and kindness.  Today’s printable is sized 12″ x 12″.
