A Surprise Blog Citation

I am very honored that I have been given a blog award from Gina. Like so many others, I started my blog to just have an ongoing journal. It has been a way of just recording events and expressing my thoughts. I am grateful to my sister Brenda who actually encouraged me to start a blog.

However, I never could have imagined what a blessing the blog would be. I have met so many wonderful christian friends through this blog, and they have been such an encouragement . It's been really fun to get a peek into the lives of other people. I feel like I'm getting to know them and their families. I look forward to reading comments that others leave on my posts.

I have actually started a prayer list for prayer needs that have been expressed by my blogger friends. I feel like I know some of them, even though I've never met them.

Thank you to all of you who have brightened my days.

Here is the description of the award and the guidelines to pass it on..."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."

And now I would like to pass this award on to Brenda, Lynn, Kristen, Joan, Nicole, and although I know they've already been given an award by others, Cindy and Dee.

Donna, you do deserve this award. Thanks for taking the time to encourage bloggers and let them know that you enjoy and appreciate what they write. I am so impressed that you keep a blogging prayer list to pray for needs. That is a very special ministry.

You are my best pupil—okay my only pupil. I love to see you having fun with blogging and FB! We are both learning as we go. As you figure out something new, let me know because “As iron sharpens iron, so a friend (sister) sharpens a friend (sister).” Is that what that means? Probably not. Blessings on you.

You are a blessing and your words are a blessing to me!
Love you,
