What an honor that I have received a blog award from my dear bloggy friend Donna! Thank you sweet friend! You made my day! :)
Here is the description of the award..."The citation reads: These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! There's an instruction that comes with this award. Deliver this award to 8 bloggers who must choose 8 more and include this text into the body of their award."
Like Donna and so many others, I originally started this blog to put my thoughts down on paper and share my faith and my life. It's funny... when this journey began... this blog was private. For invited family and friends only. The LPM blog is the vehicle God used to inspire me to begin blogging in the beginning, and it was the LPM blog that led me to so many other blogs of Christian women that were open to everyone! So, with a deep breath I made my blog public.
What a joy it has been. I can say I have made friends with so many lovely ladies across our country. There are no pretenses, no age limits... we have very different lives, but have so much in common. And the most important thread - our love for Jesus Christ and our desire to know him more intimately. To share this faith in Christ with all who will read!
I never imagined the blessings I would receive from blogging. Re-connecting w/ an old friend, making new friends and the possibility of meeting some of you in person! Oh I will hug your sweet necks when that happens! Sharing your ups and downs... trials and joys... what a community in Christ we have!
I have had the privelege to pray for so many of you and the blessing of so many of you praying for me!
A heartfelt thank you to all of you who read my blog! You are all a bright spot in my days!
So with that: Here is the guideline/instruction that comes with this award:
Deliver this award to 8 bloggers who must choose 8 more and include this text into the body of their award."
How difficult it was to pick just 8 - so I picked 9! I also knew that even know I wanted to, I couldn't pick dear Sarah since she just delivered her baby girl Anna Claire!!!! Praising Jesus for that sweet baby!
12My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. 13Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends. 14You are my friends if you do what I command. 15I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master's business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you. ~ John 15: 12-15
Wife, Daughter, Sister, Friend, Doggie Mom, REALTOR, Cyclist, Gardener...
I love to share my home, my heart and my faith.
As I journey with the Lord through this earthly life it is my prayer that I come to know Him deeper and deeper each and every day.
