This is my second blog award in 2 days. I am so humbled (to the point of tears—overwhelmed!). I want to thank Bird (Cathie) at Everyone Has a Story for nominating me. If ever I needed some encouragement in my blogging it’s been this past week.
As it is for all awards, there are rules. I am suppose to be telling you something I’ve been doing lately. Well, for the first time in years I am able to plant a small garden spot behind my apartment building. My dear neighbor, Mel, who passed away earlier this year (I wrote a post about him called “Gone Fishing”) was the one who was in charge of making the backyard “pretty”. His children, after he passed, gave me a lot of his items in the garden spot. I told them I would make the spot beautiful…in memory of his dear friendship–he was like a dad to me. So, I’ve been planting baskets of flowers, doing a little landscaping, even have some tomatoes growing…and it’s a joy for me. I’m still a kid when it comes to playing in the dirt.
I understand I am suppose to nominate 6 people for this award–but, for this award I would like to nominate just 2.

Thank you sweetie! Every time I read one of your posts, it seems like I’ve been there! Your blog is so very good and God has gifted you well! Stay blessed in His Precious Love!

WOW! You only picked 2 and one of them was me! Thank you so much. I feel humbled and honored that you read my blog so diligently. I have been having a hard time finding time to write lately. So much going on at the church we serve that I can barely find time to sleep. Thank God that He provides the extra time for me to get all that I get done and still sleep.
Thank you for the nomination. I am going to try to get this done tonight before I look for that extra hour of sleep. 🙂
Your blog is an inspiration to me for sure! I know hoe humbling it is to be nominated…but sometimes I believe God brings these little tokens of appreciation along to show us that what we are doing with our blogging is bringing Him glory.
You are more than welcome Jeannie…
May your rest be blessed
