Thank You!

Thank you so much to Morning by Morning for passing on this award to me. This is an exciting occasion for me since this is my very first blog award! It really means so much when you find out that your words have reached someone. I can really identify with my new blog friend at Morning by Morning when she said ..." when I got a few comments on the first post . . . I was like “SOMEBODY PINCH ME I must be dreaming?????” I felt the exact same way. Now, it's almost as if we're becoming a family, supporting and encouraging each other. I'm very blessed to receive this award and now I get the privilege of passing it on to Seven Brilliant Blog Ladies whose words have blessed my life!

Morning Coffee Joni was the very first one to leave a comment on my blog. I have met so many wonderful blog friends through her. I always find inspiration and refreshment in her words and pictures.

Loved and Engraved Karen has been a good friend for a long time. It's so much fun to share blogging with her. Her enthusiasm is contagious. I always learn something new about her life and faith through reading her blog.

The Perfect Walk I met Leigh through a common interest in our profile, seeking God. You can see her heart for God so clearly in her words. Her faith shines through in everything she writes.

Red Tin Heart Nita's blog blesses my heart everytime I visit. You can see her strength and courage in her writing. She inspires everyone who visits.

Homesteader's Heart Kim is so full of joy and energy and enthusiasm for life. She has a fun sense of humor and I always enjoy reading about her daily adventures with her family and her faith.

Cottage Days and Journeys Donna's blog is always full of adventures from her travels and her life at home. I met her through the Photo Challenge. She is always an encouragement.

Annie's Blog I love reading about Annie's adventures in New York City and seeing her journey through her photographs there.

The Rules: Put the logo on your blog. Put a link to me (who awarded it to you)(if you want) on your blog also. You need to nominate 7 other bloggers for the award and put links to them also on your blog. Finally, leave a comment for those you've nominated - so they know they've received a special award!

"Bless the Lord oh my soul"

Your words touches the deepest part of me. I feel God's love through your message. Oh how i love to hear the Lord telling me, "well done, my good and faithful servant".

My blogs are ALL for the glory of God. Without the things He is showing me and making me experience, the writings would not be possible.

The Perfect Walk is a walk with God. It is my way of seeking God with my whole everything.

Thank you for the award Karen.

This is what the Lord wants me to tell you today:

2 Thessalonians 1:5
"All this is evidence that God's judgment is right, and as a result you will be counted worthy of the kingdom of God.."

God bless you.

Yours in Christ,

Your such a nice blog friend and that was so nice of you to honor your friends!

Joni said...

Oh Karen, I am touched and humbled that you thought of me and I am most honored that you would find a source of inspiration and refreshment at my blog...but what my heart is most grateful for is the sweet friendship we are able to share across the miles and THAT is what I truly thank you for...

Thank you for the award. This is my first award as well. You are the one who introduced me to blogging back in January. At that time I posted for a few days and life got busy and then in April and May you left comments for me and some of the others you had connected with started leaving comments too. So again your encouragement pulled me back to blogging.

I've found that I really enjoy sharing my pictures and writing with others and that I enjoy reading their inspirational thoughts. It's fun keeping up with people all over the world and getting glimpses into their lives.

Thanks for being a good friend and for the inspiration you provide to me.

Thank you for the award, too. Now I really will have to do some thinking. I read many of the same blogs that you do.

I'd like to thank my Mother for whom without her I wouldn't be here, I'd like to thank my family for their constant support of my sillyness, I'd like to thank God for giving me the sillyness, Okay are you laughing yet? lol. Thank you my friend for the award. I wanted to give it back to you but I guess I had to pick different people. But know that I would have.
