The following bloggers have been so kind as to nominate me for these fine awards over the last few months. Unfortunately, I have done nothing about it and these awards have stacked up. I am ever-so-grateful to these friends of mine for thinking of me and feeling as if I’m worthy of these awards. God bless each one of you!

Zendictive nominated me for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award!
Now what can I say about each one of these wonderful writers?
I can say a lot!! And I will!
The Struggler’s Handbook written by The Struggler, is one of the more down-to-earth, sincere, authentic blogs I’ve come across. He’s my kind of blogger in that he tells it like it is and doesn’t pull any punches. He’s straight up about himself, his life, and his struggles with faith. He makes me feel better about my own struggles, so I love to read him. Stop by and visit his wonderful blog.
Loopyloo, “Patricia” who does “My Blog” is a delightful conservative blogger who knows how to make a beginning blogger feel good! She’s been so unbelievably kind to me and always makes me feel like she enjoys what I write. She writes very informative opinion pieces and shares inspiring vids and thoughtful text about the bible, spirituality, and religion in general. She loves a little politics mixed in with her faith and is a most definite READ for all of us.
Cathy from “Did Jesus have a facebook” this lady is a hoot! This is one of the most honest people! She is totally straight up and will move you to your core with her wonderful, witty writings on a variety of topics from family, to faith, to politics, to what’s going on in her home and her daily living experiences. Cathy makes me smile and I find my head bobbling up and down as I relate to each and everything she seems to write; it’s just amazing! A definite MUST if you haven’t visited her yet.
Mikey, who does the blog “Have a Dream” This guy, Michael, is a sweetheart who isn’t afraid to keep us all on the straight and narrow by making sure we’re not just sitting around getting comfy in our ruts 😉 He will get you moving and thinking about what you’re doing in your life. I love his work because it picks me up and demands that I not get too settled in and become worthless to the world. Thanks for all your hard work, Mikey!
Zendictive blogs sort of an ongoing inspirational teaching series through story form, and the stories appear to have important moral principles behind them. They are inspiring and make you think about yourself, your life, and the way you interact with others. I love her easygoing style and way of sharing her stories. Zen is a gentle, loving person who I would like to be more like. Thanks, Zen.
And now for the ten things about me that you never really wanted to know and probably didn’t know!
A couple years ago, I built an outdoor turtle pond for my turtle rescues (2) named Lucky & Little Redlet.
I have a 2005 candy apple red Ford Explorer Sport Trac Pick Up that I adore! And they aren’t making them anymore, so I’ll hang onto to this one as long as I can!
I’m going to keep Vicki, the newest stray puppy, addition to our ark/family. I’m not very good at foster-parenting, obviously. ha ha.
I really honestly like animals more than most people, but there are exceptions to this rule, and I have God to thank for this.
I often wonder if I will survive my young daughter’s teen age years. They are just starting. (sigh)
I don’t feel that I do “this Christian thing” too well, to be absolutely honest with you, but I really love God quite deeply. No lie.
The bible absolutely delights and intrigues me.
My favorite Blue Bell Ice Cream flavor is “Banana Pudding.”
I am a very silly, mischievous person in real time with those who know me well, whom I trust. With the rest, I’m actually pretty shy.
WordPress.com means the world to me, as do all of you who read me, like, and comment on my blogs. I just hope what I write blesses and helps somebody somewhere, some of the time.
The Latest Group of Bloggers Who are Deserving of an Award:
These people have blessed me with their writings and I love them lots! They are newer bloggers with less than 200 followers, who have caught my attention, who I rarely want to miss reading:
The 1 saved by grace – The lady’s blog is terrific and I’ve been learning a lot from her through reading her as often as I’m able. She knows the word well. She deserves the Genuine Blogger Award.
Ed Christian’s World – Ed is one of a kind and someone I am growing close to through his superb Christian advice on how to live this life. He and his wife are lovely people and he is very wise. I recommend stopping by and getting to know this man’s writings. I want to gift Ed with the Sunshine Award because he has really been making me feel good lately. God bless him.
Epignosis Ministeries – This is good stuff. He knows the bible and is a Christian apologist who really helps me out when I want to deeply meditate on the bible and the teachings within. I like his style! He deserves the Versatile Blogger Award.
Lame Housewife – This wonderful woman’s writings puzzle me at times and worry me a little because she hits to close to the core of who I am and sometimes that’s not so good. lol. The great thing, though, is that she makes me take a deep look at my walk with Christ. And she keeps me humble. Thanks, Ms. Lame. God bless you. You get the LOL Award because you are teaching me to laugh at myself and my character flaws.
Last but definitely not least:
Robbie “Rambo” Judkins Robbie is a great guy who has a biker ministry and the best part of his blogs are that he is down to earth, no frills, and a simple good Christian man who doesn’t bs around. If you want good, practical teaching, visit Robbie! He’s also my friend, he and his wife. Robbie, you get the Genuine Blogger Award.
