Ideal Inspiration Blogger Award 7.11.2020

“But there is a spirit in man:
and the inspiration of the Almighty giveth them understanding.”
– Job 32:8 KJV

Dearest, Lord. How inspiring You are to me! So generous and thoughtful. Always pouring out Your love! Just as You have done in whispering my name to our dearest Anabel of Lebana’s Journal to nominate me for the Ideal Inspiration Blogger Award. How my heart smiles to know it is our sweet Anabel! You have allowed Anabel to be one of my inspirations on WordPress since I began blogging. She has always been so encouraging, so kind, and has such a sweet spirit. I’ve always loved how her bio dares her readers to get to know her. And what touching poetry! And that beautiful picture of her! Thank You, God, for allowing such a sweet fellowship with my precious friend Anabel!

Thank you, dearest Anabel! What a dear friend you are to me, and have been from the beginning of my WordPress journey! Thank you for your kind nomination! And thank you for all of your encouraging messages, and for always sharing your heart for God. Your poetry and your faith has also been a blessing to me. May God bless you as richly!
Me and God love you, my Filipina Sister! ❤ideal-inspiration-blogger-awardRules

And each one who has nominated me for an award that you have not heard back from me on. I have lost so many emails, award nominations, comments, and more lately to where even if I KNOW I had one, I cannot find them. It’s very possible I have accidentally deleted them or just need to find where I put them. For the last year and this one, I have been learning to use my new smartphone and tablet. Unfortunately I have been learning the hard way not to trust them. I apologize and want to make clear how much you are valued! Praise God for your encouragement, your merciful heart, and your thoughtfulness. Me and God love you!

Congratulations to the Nominees. Please do not feel obligated to participate. If you do, no rush. Do in your time, as God gives. And please send me a link. I would love to read your post! Just sharing a little of God’s love your way. Thank you for inspiring me! 🙂
Me and God love you!

PS… Sorry about forgetting the questions. Please feel free to use the same questions Anabel gave me.

 

Sunshine Blogger Award 6.23.18

Our Gracious Heavenly Father, how loving and generous You are to allow Your sun to shine within my days, so bright that I can easily remember the warmth and comfort in the midst of this dark night. It gives much needed hope that whatever may be tonight, Your sun will come out tomorrow. Whether hidden behind a darkness of black clouds, peeking through clouds with those playful rays, or shining so bright that there is no mistaking what You deemed to be good… the Day.  Yet how far more loving to share Your beautiful Son in our lives… our hearts… reminding us that no darkness in the world can put His light out. Not even death! ❤ Thank You for the hope, the assurance that He is coming back for us!

How thoughtful You are to me, my Lord, through my dearest Anabel! While visiting over on her site… Lebana’s Journal,  I found she nominated me for the Sunshine Blogger Award.

You are such a merciful and loving sister in Christ. A fellow poet who knows the struggle AND the beauty in the darkness. If it weren’t for the darkness, we wouldn’t know to appreciate light.
