My sweet and funny blogging friend in Christ, Karen at Karen's Ramblings, recently spread some sunshine among a wide array of her 'net friends, including me. This is just like Karen to do something like this. In the short time I have known her she has encouraged me greatly in a number of ways. She spreads sunshine and sweetness where ever she goes on the 'net. She seems to effortlessly (though I know it is not with out effort - she just makes it look that way), draw women into a feeling of community on the 'net, and it is such a blessing. I can always count on her site to give words that are uplifting, grounded in truth and even witty (a combination I value greatly!).
Her award came at a fortuitous time for me, as I was feeling a little "funky" at the time. I have somehow managed to make and lose friends on the blogg-o-sphere just very recently, and as my goal is to edify and encourage, that was really bumming me out, I guess you could say!
So, thank YOU, Karen, for being such a consistent reflection of the love of Christ and just all-round giver of cheer! May the God of all peace richly bless you and your family, near and far with all joy and hope in believing!
I would like to share this award with some ladies that (as far as I know) didn't just get this award and always share sunshine and encouragement with me.
Grab the button, and please accept my thanks for you and for your blog's sunny disposition!
A blog that is new to me, and AWESOME in truth & wit, Mrs Fussypants (I recently told my husband & son that I had come across the "Queen of Bloggers" they did NOT get it, but if you drop by - YOU certainly will!), Leslie at Do You Weary Like I Do?, Julie at Joyful Days, Kara at Looking Towards Heaven (this blog I also just discovered, but you will like!), Karen at Survivng Motherhood (actually - I think Karen may have given this to her as well, but, she is on my heart just now - so she gets it again!), and my BFF MaryAnn at MaryMine Designs. She is a faithful reader, sister, friend, and encourager extrodinaire! I am hoping she will soon delve into the world of blogging, and maybe you all will get to know her for yourselves!
Thanks to all - Hey, I am thinking of a song, it goes like this - "my future looks so bright - I gotta wear shades!" It must be my blogging friends on the horizon!
