“Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth,
where moth and rust doth corrupt,
and where thieves break through and steal:
but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven,
where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt,
and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
for where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
-Matthew 6:19-21 AKJV

Lord, You have sent me a treasure from You that I will be able to give back to You… a crown to lay at Your feet. That is how I see Your whispering to Stu of Something to Stu Over to nominate me for the Liebster Award. Not because of the material value that can be deleted, and seen as something to brag about. This blog is Yours, and ANY glory it receives is ALL YOURS!
Thank You for the fellowship with my brother in Christ. Bless him in his blog, his ministries, his family, and in his own personal walk with You.

Thank you, Stu, for thinking of me with the kind nomination!
Thank You for the opportunity to share with others!
Thank you for allowing me another opportunity
to praise our heavenly Father! God loves you, brother!

Stu’s Questions for Me:
1. What is your greatest fear?
disappointing my Jesus 😦
2. What is the best advice you have ever been given?
to give my heart and soul to Jesus ❤
3. Do you prefer wild game, such as deer, rabbit and squirrel or do you prefer “domesticated” like cow and chicken?
domesticated
4. What was your favorite toy as a child?
I really don’t remember any toys other than coloring books & crayons my granddad use to buy me, and a small Pillsbury Dough Doll that the head came off of but would still do the famous giggle if you pushed his belly.
The doll thing was strange and I really wasn’t into dolls, so I’ll go with coloring books & crayons.
Oh wait! The Lord is reminding of a jump rope I earned when I was 6 years old by memorizing John 3:16 for a church bus driver! Mr. Farlough challenged me to learn it and I knew it by the next time he picked me up. It would be a few years before I really understood it, but it stayed with me for life! (the verse not the rope 😉 ) ❤
5. What is your favorite past time activity?
spending alone time with God ❤

Sorry
