(When writing sections, highlight words in parentheses to replace them with new periodic words. Keep it all brief, use “MORE” buttons a lot, have fun.)
(At start of each month we will hopefully have new readers to our blog-e-zine. Just a few new words of welcome to our new readers and thanks to the regular ones should be made here updating them on why reading Espirational Happenings is important to them. Just a few friendly sentences should surfice.)
Who or What’s Espirational?
(First month we should give a brief purpose statement of who Espirational is and what we are trying to do with it. After first month a different person, object (mtn, flower, etc) should be featured as being espirational and why.)
Put it on your calendar. We’re having a month long celebration in June to celebrate months of preparation and building our new Website called All Things Espirational. In it we will have a new art gallery featuring Genie’s hand crafted fabric art which has been seen and sold in several venues across the country. A bookshelf with Bob and Genie’s books are available for you to read and/or purchase. A new blog-E-zine which you can have delivered to your email box FREE simply by following this site on the Word Press blog system. A toolbox filled with wonderful, positive and uplifting sites to help you in your spiritual journey. And much more!
There will be prizes and give-aways, special reduced prices in the Gallery, and others events not yet listed here. Come celebrate with us. It’s bound to be ESPIRATIONAL!
(Any art or book specials or specials from other affiliates should be placed here, one line per special. Connect with MORE button.)

Just a note here about our Positive Lifestyle Digest of the Web’s half-dozen best articles which will appear here in the “Espirational Happenings” blog-E-zine monthly for everyone to enjoy. This is a service we’ve decided to do to help busy people apply therapeutic and enjoyable time reading valuable and well written articles, poetry, stories and experiences without having to spend hours searching the Web to find them.
These are items which Bob, Genie and you have found by surfing the Web and have independently declared them as being of best value as examples of a quality positive spiritual life which is well written, respectful of everyone and everything concerned (including the Creator). You, a subscriber of “Espirational Happenings,” are encouraged to submit any excellently written blog posts, articles, or other items you find which you think fit the requirements for inclusion in this section if they fit the eight simple outlined rules below:
- Item must have already been posted or published on the Web with clear, public access Web URL.
- Item must be in English, well written using proper standard spelling and grammer for the part of the world it was written for.
- Item must express, promote, and/or be an example of living a positive, godly lifestyle.
- Item must NOT be simply a promotion attempt to sell anything.
- Item must NOT be an apology, documentary or accusitive expose’.
- Item must be available at the time it is submitted for possible inclusion into Espirational Happenings.
- The submitter of the item has NOT contacted the author or publisher about republication of the item. We will do that if it is declared as one of the best articles to be used in Espirational Happenings with a “Certificate” and icon for them to use on their site. But if you know how to contact them please enter that into your submission information.
Please keep in mind that we are doing this as a service for you, our readers, only. No one is getting paid for these “best of the Web” listings. Articles displaying any forms of negativity (including hate, fear mongering, violence, pornography, etc.) will be discarded and the submitter will not be responded to.
Articles chosen as the “best” will be decided by Bob and Genie Robbins each month.
One last point: Due to the number of submissions expected, these submissions are most likely NOT going to be responded to directly because of lack of time to do so. So if you do take a moment to submit what you believe to be an excellent item for our consideration we want you to know that your submission is greatly appreciated.
Thank You very much.
Genie and Bob
