Dear Friends ,
Denise of Shorty Bears Place literally made me cry when she gave me this award as I have been through a lot lately. It means so much to me and I am humbled and honored. I know that all honor and Glory go to God for the things we do in life so if this blog has touched or helped any of you in any way it is to the honor of the Lord that I strive daily. I am so grateful to have him in my life and the unconditional love and joy he gives me. I am also so grateful to the wonderful blogging friends I have met. I love visiting your blogs, getting to know you and your families , lives, struggles and joy. I love praying with and for you all. I have really appreciated Denise giving me this award and took my time to reflect on it and all of you.
Here is what Denise said about me that made me cry:
Angel at http://www.angelslisteningheart.blogspot.com/ ,This lady truly has wings, she has grown to be my personal angel send. Her blog encourages my heart and soul each day. She can make me laugh, and then make me cry with her great love for Jesus.
I know Denise has already received this award but I wanted to honor her with this post. She is such a caring ,loving and kind individual. She loves to find the joy and the Lords presence in everyday of her life. She has uplifted me and helped me and I really appreciate her kindness and Love for the Lord. She deserves so many awards and I did nominate her for one recently..LOL :) because I love her .
"...this award should make you reflect on five bloggers who have been an encouragement, a source of love, impacted you in some way, and have been a Godly example to you. Five Bloggers who when you reflect on them you get a sense of pride and joy... of knowing them and being blessed by them."
"This award is for the best-of-the-best so consider who you pick, carefully. This award should not be given to just anyone. If you're going to do the award don't just write a few words and slap it on your blog. Write real thoughts about these bloggers and what they've meant to you. If the bloggers you pick have already been given the award, don't be afraid to give it to them again. They deserve it as many times as it's given."
This award was originally created by home schooler Jocelyn Dixon of ~*~Lothlorien, Realm of the Lady of Light
Rules of participating:
1. Create a post in which you reflect and list five bloggers and write at least a paragraph about each.
2. Copy the rules and information from this post or her original one.
3. Notify the bloggers you picked and let them know they've been given the award via email or comment on their blogs.
4. Put the award icon in your post.
I would like to pass the torch and honor the following bloggers:
Amber of Amber ~Trust in the Lord. Amber is a wonderful mother of 7 blessings. She is a homeschooling mom, blogs , designs and is a true Proverbs woman. Her love for the Lord and family show through every post. Her blog posts and comments really uplift others including myself.
Heather of Marine Corp Nomads. Heather is a pillar of strength for her husband with his job, family and friends. Her love of the Lord and her family shine through her everyday life and posts. I love reading about her life as a military wife. Her love and giving the honor to the Lord for all her strength and love is so enriching . She is a very big inspiration to me. I have to say when she wrote about her husband being deployed my heart sank and I cried.Remember as my husband says I am a "sensitive soul"....LOL I know that God is with them and protecting them and him but I know how close she is to him. The next thing I knew she was comforting me when I was trying to be positive and uplifting her. She also loves to cook and bake like I do and has a wonderful recipe for Oatmeal cookies that seem like the ones I have been trying to duplicate from Trader Joes..LOL
Nancy Brown of Nancy Brown. Nancy has a beautiful blog that documents miracles in her life and the Praises of God for them. Here is a quote about her premature son:"Tyler is an amzing little boy. Just a small 1 lb 11 ounces. He has been our world for almost 17 months. Would we do it again? You bet. Could the outcomes be worse? YOU BET! Do we want to do it again? Not in a million years." Nancy Brown
Having gone through a miscarriage of twins and two premature births ,one of which my sons lungs weren't developed I have enjoyed Nancy's blog.
Lynne of Lynne and Babies make six. Lynne is a mom of triplets plus one as she puts it for a total of 4 kids under the age of three. She is a sweet mom and I get a kick out her sweet pictures , a tribute she did for a friend on her blog as well as certain comments asking where she is at times..LOL
Now I know I am suppose to do five but there are so many great bloggers to honor I picked the above to give you some wonderful blogs to read an honor but have to say my friends Denise, Iris, Connie , Nise , Laurel , Talk to Grams, Melanie all received recently and I so agree as well as many others I looked because I would have given. And I have so many more that deserve like all of them on my blog roll so you see how hard this was so... I will leave you with I love you all. Pray for you , enjoy your comments remember it is like finding a penny and love to give awards and receive them.
Thanks again Denise.
In his endless love,
