The Bases Are Loaded! Three Awards!

January 19, 2013

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!

Very Inspiring Blogger Award

March 16, 2012

I am honored, blessed, and humbly accept the “Very Inspireing Blogger Award.  Wow, what a delightful surprise! 

 

Rules for this award:

1.Thank the person who nominated you.

2. Share 7 things about yourself

3. Pass the award to 7 nominees

 

1. A very tardy thank you to http://caddoveil.wordpress.com/ for awarding this to me.   My trees are blooming, the flowers and grass are growing too.  Oh, my though, the pollen is HIGH.  Sadly, this has caused me to fall behind on some things.  Achooo . . . excuse me.

Please be sure to visit my dear sister in Christ whose poetry is as  beautiful as her heard for Jesus.  You will not be disappointed. 

2. Time to share 7 things about myself with all of you.  Hmmm. . . .  here goes!

a.   It is hard to come up with something you may not already know since I try to live by the Holy Spirit and thus share as I feel led – this being said I have few secrets left.  Now, you know why. 

b.  I love to grocery shop.  Yes, it’s true but please don’t worry about me.  I assure you I am quite sane as a rule.  Thing is, I always meet such kind-hearted and lovely people there and at each trip, find myself being witnessed to by one of His flock, or being led to witness myself to another.  When Jesus so closely accompanies me to a grocery store, how can I help but love it?

c.  I am a poet and am currently writing a book proposal for a publisher.

d.  I have always wished I was small and cute, but am in fact tall and wear a ladies size 11 shoe.  Sigh.  Nice things come in all different sized packages, though.  I promise.

e.  I had a can named Tinkerbell when I was young and he was the nastiest creature.  Keep this in mind when you name your pets.  I believe there is a distinct connection between his name and his reaction to it and believe that his personality speaks of his “revolt” against the choice in name. 

f.  I love plants but am dreadful at remembering to water them.

g.  My last house has a sun porch with 12 large windows and so I hung fake plants up high so nobody could tell, and rotated them about so they appeared to be growing.  With the blinds partly closed, nobody could tell! 

 Ah, the fun part!  My nominees are:
