What a treat an award is!  To be given this award, the “You Make My Day Award” by my brother in Christ, Wendell, author of Forever Poetic blesses me so much.  His heart for Christ is reflected in every word he writes, whether it is a poem or comment and his poetry, like his heart, cannot fail to make your day.  I encourage you to read his blog and return often!  Thank you so much, dear brother!

The rules:

First, be sure to thank the person who nominated you.

Second, you are required to answer the following 8 questions:
     1) Why do you blog?

Well, I’ve always written, made up poetry, told stories . . . before I started school as a little girl.  I honestly never thought of blogging until Fr Rick at church, a former blogger before he became a priest, said “why don’t you blog?”  I thought he was crazy or tired of my emails (kidding, he’s wonderful) and about 18 hours after I said “Me?  Are you crazy?” I was a blogger and I LOVE IT!  I am so blessed to be a part of this amazing global body of Christ!

      2) If you were trapped on a desert island, what book, DVD, food,       cartoon character, and childhood game would you bring?

A big pad of lined paper (and a whole bunch of pens)

     3) Share a funny joke or one-liner.

I don’t tell jokes, but my late father always tried to.  They were groaners but everyone he met loved him and laughed at his good heart (and bad joke) so here’s one of Dad’s favorite dirty jokes, his only dirty joke.  “Want to hear a dirty joke?  Two white horses fell in the mud!”  Love you Daddy!

     4) What is your favourite thing about your self?

Jesus in my heart.

      5) What one word best describes you?


      6) If you could have a lifetime supply of any candy/candy bar,                                     what would it be?

Dark chocolate Dove Bars with almonds

      7) What fictional character do you relate to most?

A female version of “John boy” on the Waltons.  He always had paper and pencil nearby.  I have them everywhere.

      8) If you were to write the story of your life, what would you call it?

How I Fell In Love With Jesus

And last but not least nominate 8 of your favorite blogs!  This one’s hard because I have far more than 8 favorites.  Hmmmm . . .

  2. Women’s Window

    Congrats on the award, Martha!! Oooh, I want some of those Dove bars with almonds–yes! And I’m with you–a big supply of my gel tip fave pens and clipboard with college ruled paper (stacks of it!). Oh and I’ll need my reference books and 3 different Bibles and reference books for those–that should do it! God bless you–love, sis Caddy


  2. You are so deserving as you are always a daily delight to me dear sister! Blessings!


  3. Congratulations to those who you nominated so gracefully!


    • Aw, thanks. I cannot wait for my eyesight to heal sufficiently again so that I can attack that list of nominations you posted! If my eyes weren’t so bad I’d have done the same thing as you! Hugs, dear brother in Christ!
