Blog of the Year 2012

December 27, 2012

My most grateful thanks to Wendell A Brown for awarding me this Blog of the Year 2012 honor and blessing!  Coming from such an amazing poet and lover of Jesus makes this extra special to me.  If you have not had an opportunity to read his verse, I strongly encourage you to do so.  My apologies to him for a delay in making this post, but it’s been a bit busy in my world and quite honestly, I am still not completely finished coming up with my list of nominees, so this post will be edited to reflect more links for you to visit and be blessed by.  The nominees I post are not in any particular order of preference.

Here are some of my nominees:

There will be more!  Again, my heartfelt thanks to my brother in Christ Weldell A Brown for this honor!

My “REALITY Award”

October 24, 2012

Wow, a “Reality Award” for me?

What an honor.  I previously announced this but didn’t have an opportunity to complete the “acceptance” in the way I wanted to, so here goes.  First I’d like to once again thank “My Blog” and our dear friend “loopy” for this delightful gift.

As her own post about this indicated, there are no rules, but I’m going to follow suit to some degree with her own acceptance.  I may also, given the fact of no rules, honor some with a nomination who do not usually participate in the awards due to time constraints.  If that is your situation, simply snag a copy of the award and display it on your blog.  I may also give a few now and give some later . . . since there are no rules.  So difficult to pick just a few of you since I love you all!  There were some questions she was asked to answer and I will answer the same ones myself:

  1. If you could change something what would you change?

Well, I have to admit that aside from a smaller waistline, it would probably be to have said “yes” to a personal relationship with Jesus much earlier in my life.

  1. If you could repeat an age, what age would it be?

If I can’t go back being wiser than I was the first time around, I’d rather stay put, thanks just the same.

  1. What one thing really scares you?

 My problem with my eyesight/fear of going blind.

  1. What one dream have you not completed yet and do you think you will be able to complete it.

I dream of writing a book (several actually) and having it published by an established publishing house (as opposed to self-published) and I believe it will take place . . . if it is God’s will, He will lead me.

  1. If you could be someone else for the day, who would you be?

Mary, mother of Jesus while she carried our precious Lord inside her in human form.  Wow, you know? 


Now, my nominees for today:


  1. 1.
  2. 2.
  3. 3.
  4. 4.
  5. 5.
  6. 6.
  7. 7.

One Lovely Award and Blessing

June 13, 2012

The Lord loves us so much that He puts special people in our lives and hearts so that we cannot possibly fail to recognize how very much we are loved, so when I found this LOVELY award was being presented to me by I was reminded of His love just when I needed it for I was feeling low and my sister in Christ lifted me up again by honoring me this way.  As usual, these awards come with a few rules. It’s a cute, fun way to help other bloggers get to know a little more about you. And an excellent way to let others know about some of the blogs you follow, as well.

The rules:

  • Link back to the blogger who nominated you.
  • Paste the award image on your blog, anywhere.
  • Tell them 7 facts about yourself.
  • Nominate 15 other blogs you like for this award.
  • Contact the bloggers that you have chosen to let them know that they have been nominated.

7 things:

  • I love Jesus (and I want the whole world to love Him too)
  • I have no favorite color.  God is such an amazing artist, I love all of them!
  • I could eat spinach every single day!
  • I love telling children stories!
  • Paul’s letters are my favorite books of the Bible
  • I love thrift store shopping!
  • I have a weakness for purses and tote bags – make ’em, design ’em, buy ’em!

Sunshine AND Kreativ Blogger Awards!

April 1, 2012

Wow, life’s been busy lately.  God has made it so and I love it and Him.  That being said, I’m tardy in responding and expressing appreciation for two recent award nominations.  So sorry.  Must say though, if you are like me and have some big unresolved needs which threaten to weigh you down then I urge you to slow down and breath and allow yourself to see the blessings which are piling up right next to the problems.  I bet if you  do this you will be surprised at how big THAT pile is.  It is a reminder of our Lord’s loving and powerful hand at work and our ASSURANCE that all will be well. 

So, speaking of blessings, I was recently awarded a Kreativ Blogger Award by AND awarded the Sunshine Award by  I highly recommend that you read these two blogs if you’ve not discovered them yet.  They will bless you just as they bless me. 

As soon as I am able I will remind myself of the task list which may accompany these two awards, but I didn’t want to let another moment pass before a public thank you for the two blessings.
