The Bases Are Loaded! Three Awards!

Okay, I know it is the wrong season for a baseball connection to a post, but it is my favorite sport and it suited me.  lol  Life in my world is busy, challenging, hope filled, and . . . well this girl who likes to be “early” for everything is having to learn patience and to forgive herself for falling behind.  I ask this same forgiveness of you and especially for gegebearbear who presented me with these three awards.  Like her, I shall combine this blessing collection into one post!  Thank you so much for such a delightful blessing!  If you are not acquainted with her blog, or I should say their blog, as she and her hubby are quite a team, I encourage you to visit it often.  It will not disappoint!

Super Sweet Blogging Award!

I’m going to combine my requirements in stating  things about myself as she has done.

  • Cookies or Cake? Cookie, of course, as y’all know from my recipe posts, of this guilty pleasure!
  • Chocolate or Vanilla? A bit of each, I think, and so many more! Life is too short to limit the flavors!
  • Favorite sweet treat? Apple cider
  • When do you crave sweet things the most? In the evening, though that is not a healthy time for me to do so.  lol
  • If you had a sweet nickname, what would it be? My late father DID give me such a nickname:  Muffin
  • My relationship with the Lord is the most important thing in my life
  • I am in the midst of writing a book of poetry, one of devotionals, and a children’s book and seeking publishers
  • Quiet time with the Lord daily and listening to Him is life-giving – being quiet, not too easy though

Now for my nominations:


Wow, it is hard to limit my nominations.  I love you all and congratulate the nominees as well as my other sisters and brothers in Him whether I listed them here or not.  You bless me so much!
