Well here God goes again!! Just continuing the shower of blessings… through another new friend! Little Miss Bear Paw of Family by Faith has nominated me for the Liebster Award. I was actually more excited for her when reading her blog on receiving it (which is when I saw my nomination 🙂 ). She had titled it My First Blog Award! If you don’t think the awards matter to anyone, just read her excitement! I love it! ❤
I also love her blog. She is so encouraging with snippets and wisdom of God’s word. And with such sweet humor. I’m sorry it took so long, Little Miss Bear Paw, to get this up. I had a procedure earlier in the week. I’ve been eager to share your excitement, your answers, and your take on the award. Congrats on your Liebster, and thank you for giving me the chance to nominate more bloggers! God loves you! ❤
The instructions for accepting the award and passing it on are as follows:
1. Create a new blog post on your blog thanking the person that nominated you, link to their blog, and put in a graphic of the award;
2. Answer the questions that were provided, and share some facts about yourself;
3. Create a new set of your own questions for others to answer;
4. Nominate others (around 5 to 10) and share your blog post with them so they can accept their award.
My Questions to answer:
How did your blog get started?
As a private page to talk with God, make notes on reading His word, write some poetry. Doing a challenge with dearest Fatima of Splendor in Embers led me to opening my privacy settings, which led to another challenge with Lovely A of Discovering Your Happiness, and I’m just trying to follow the Lord from there. It’s His blog.
What is one thing you like to do besides blogging?
Puzzle Books… Word Games, Sudoku, Bible Crosswords, a large variety
What is your favorite story and why?
It’s hard to pick just one from the Bible, but I am in love with the one on Hannah and her praying to have a child, while being mocked by the other women. I may have been an unwed teen being mocked by other unwed teens who were already moms, but for whatever reason God allowed my baby boy who is now 29, Anthoni of Inner Man Theatre. I didn’t know the Bible yet then, else I would have probably named him Samuel. 😉
How do you turn that frown upside down on a less than a sunshiny day?
Singing hymns and spiritual songs! 🙂
What is your favorite song and why?
It’s too hard to pick one favorite. Instead I will share the song God gave me today. I’m having to let Him build the courage to sing the chorus. Stronger For It by Lordsong
Who is a hero that inspires you and why?
The Father, The Son, and the Holy Spirit… the Trinity. They each have played such lifesaving roles in my life, and continue to every single day! ❤
Do you have a New Year’s Resolution you’ve actually kept? If so what is it? (if the if so… is to personal feel free to skip this one)
The best New Year’s Resolution I ever made was the 1st year I resolved not to make one. It was completely eye opening and strengthening to do so. God can teach us many things!
Fun Facts About Myself:
I have played on a baseball team, been a cheerleader, been known as a water bug because of how much I love to swim, use to walk or run 5 miles a day, danced, loved marathons, played basketball, used to do flips, backbends, and one-handed cartwheels off the high dive. I miss every bit of it. However, I praise the Lord for allowing the doctors to help me stand, walk, sleep, and function enough to run errands.
