My First Award

I received my first award! How cool is that? It comes from Nancy Douglas of Olive Leaf Ministries. Nancy is an author, speaker and an advocate for special needs children. Her blog is a blessing to many including me! Thanks, Nancy.

This award comes with a few rules. They are:

1. Mention the blog that gave it to you.
2. Publish these rules.
3. Share six values that are important to you and six things you do not support.
4. Grant the prize to six people.

What I value:
The Word of God
My family
My friends
Honesty
Laughter
A good midday nap

What I do not support:
Deceit
Athletes getting paid more than our military and law enforcement professionals
Generalizations about people
Disrespect
The Big Bang Theory
phone telemarketing (very annoying and always at dinnertime)

I pass this award on to some Godly women whose blogs have been a blessing to me. They are:

Lynn at Somewhere in the Middle
Calista at Can I Get a Witness
Regina at Grinders Switch: Heaven on Earth
Tater Mama at Tater Tales
Elaine at Peace for the Journey

Thanks, ladies, for letting His light shine through you.

Thanks, Melanie, for the award. You are so kind to think of me. We're in the middle of cleaning up after tropical storm Hanna blew through last night. Just got the power back on...

Find some rest this weekend with God!

Well, have mercy! I just don't know what to say, Melanie. What a kind way to encourage someone you've never even met. You have blessed me with your kindness, and it will be a pleasure to pass it on. Many thanks.

And I'm sending a nap your way...!
