WOW! I got to the computer today to see I had two - yes TWO new awards. I am so thankful.... so lets get to all the bloggie fun!
This first award was given to me by my new blog friend Yaya. Stop by & visit her - she is always such a joy - expressing her love for God & the joy that adoption has brought to her life. That little girl of hers is just precious. The rules of this award:
1. I must first post the Award on my blog
2. Link to the person who gave it to me - I'm telling you - go visit YaYa
3. Link to the originating Post to describe what this award means.... Reading it - I have to say - I LOVE it... anything that says you have the spirit of a child... I'm ALL FOR!!!
4. Pass the award on to 5 people - so let's get to it!
The first one is of course my dear friend Lynn who technically is an amazing writer - she owned her own Christian newspaper for goodness sakes! And on the other side - she truly lives life with a fun attitude - the two of us together - yeah, big kids!!! If you havent stopped by her blog yet - you'll be blessed by her insight, plus pictures & stories of her family!
The second one I'm going to send out to is from Finding Normal - I so enjoy reading this ladies stories of life & the adventures of her children. What beautiful children she has too! (Always love a red head!!!)
The third - another new blog friend that I enjoy so much reading. Mulch in their Pockets Any mom with 3 kiddos & a doggie who holds a focus on God - gotta love 'em!
Fourth - another dear friend of mine - Joe - I have watched this young man grow with the Lord & he is turning into a mighty Minister for the Lord. Plus - he's going to be a daddy soon so he's going to have lots of baby stuff coming up soon too! Love to see Fatherhood from a Christian Man's perspective!
Finally - but not least - For Such a Time as This - I adore this woman & her family. It is so fun to read about her little girls that have such a heart for the Lord already!!! Some of the stories of these kids & the passion they hold for the Lord just bring tears to my eyes - it reflects a parents guidance of raising them in the way they should go....
I know most people see these awards & skim over them but I really encourage you to visit each one of these sites - they truly ALL are blessings to me.... I would love to give awards to even more I feel - but most of you have already received it - rightfully so!!!
And then - I got another award from Rebecca Jo - no not me - there is ANOTHER Rebecca Jo in the world!!! YES!!!! We found each other through blog-land...how fun is that!!!
I feel so international with this one!!!! But what this means is "This blog believes & invest in the proximity" - looses something in the translation - but it means believes in the closeness of people through blogs -
The receiver of this award are: "These blogs are exceedingly charming. 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! Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.”
I will say - I do aim to find friends & more importantly to be a friend - so I appreicate this award in all its foreign language!!!! I am going to find 8 more blog friends & pass that on at a later date....
I got to get bills paid & have a Scavenger Hunt with the youth group tonight- lots to do - NOT TO MENTION - I have to post about my night last night with the most awesome group of kids going to see Twilight....it'll be a fun post! More to come later!
