I HAVE BEEN REWARDED..... AGAIN!!!!


Of all the times in my life when I could have been honored now is one of the BEST times!! I am so pleased to have received this award from MEG over at No Shadow of Turning. I have been reading Meg's blog only for a little while but have no enjoyed it. She loves to knit!! Plus she is a sweet lady.

Here is what the Blogger Reflection Award is given for: Give to those who have been an encouragement, a source of love, impacted you in some way, and have been a Godly example to you. This award is for the best-of-the-best so consider who you pick, carefully. This award should not be given to just anyone. If you’re going to do the award don’t just write a few words and slap it on your Blog. Write real thoughts about these Bloggers and what they’ve meant to you. If the Bloggers you pick have already been given the award, don’t be afraid to give it to them again. They deserve it as many times as it’s given.

So there is what the award is about...these are the guidelines for picking other bloggers!! Now for my picks........

My first choice would be Susan from Learning for a Lifetime. She often inspires me with her talented writing. Her love of God shows in all of her posts which always appeals to me greatly. She can take a subject and make it seem like she is talking directly to me. Lately she has been doing book reviews...which are great. We all need to know if a certain book might be the one that we want to read. But again my favorite blogs from Susan are the ones that come straight from her heart. I have met Susan so I know that she loves the Lord and her family!!


My next choice would go to Denise from Shortybears Place. She has been a BIG inspiration to me. Everyday I get a personal email from her. She has been doing this since I have had these bad times with my friend Betty. She is trying her best to encourage me and to let me know that God is with me whether I feel like He is or not. Denise, You have encouraged me more than you will ever know. Thanks so much!!

Saija from Thro' a Glass Darkly is also a very sweet lady. She hails from Canada. She and her hubby Leo have been a joy for me to meet. She just retired and is now a stay at home wife. She writes so many posts on things that also make me think and reflect about. She loves her home, her God and her Hubby!! What more can you ask for. Just go visit her and you will see too.

Daisy from Lazy Daisy Log has always inspired me. She is my friend. She prays for me everyday!! She helped start me in this wonderful world of blogging almost 2 years ago. She is so wise in her advice. You will love the way she can write of her love for God. Lately she has not been posting as much as She usually does. She has been on crutches for the past 6 weeks or so. Her faith is still strong!! You will discover this at her blog. She has always been my wall to lean on. She is indeed my sister in Christ!! I miss her tons!!

Once again, I am so happy to have been chosen!! Things are so wild right now here in my world!! I am so thankful for good health. Betty is just hanging on and no one knows exactly why or how!! I went up this morning to see her. She does not know anyone. Her lungs are filling up with fluids now. She has not eaten in a week. I hate to see her this way. I gave her a kiss and told her good-bye!! This is all I can do for her now. She is in God's hands...

FLIP FLOP FLOOZIE!!

Did you ever read a book called "Balcony People," by Joyce Landorf? It's an oldie but the theme never goes out of date...Certain people come into our lives and stand on the balconies of our lives and cheer us on. From what I've learned about you, I feel that you are indeed, a "Balcony Person," responsible for the encouraging of a lot of people!
~~~Blessings~~~
