Thank you for making our first 52+ years such an amazing & wonderful journey.
As we begin our 53rd year in April, 2016, The Inspirations' prayer
is that this will be a time of great blessing for you and you loved ones
and a year of God's continued blessings for America. Let us join our prayers toward that end.

The Inspirations DO NOT CANCEL DATES! EVER!      The Good Lord willing, that is!
