Nice Matters Award


I received my first award today!

I feel so blessed to be tagged by God's Gal. I'm usually (not always) the one whose name is not drawn in raffles. The dice never add up right in bunko for the round. Last month my husband and I were at a credit union function & he won the main prize--a huge basket full of chocolate. I felt like God was telling me I shouldn't eat chocolate, but it was okay for my hubby. I made him take it to his office at work. No way could it stay in the house for it would be gone in one day. I may could have stretched out to two depending on what day of the month it fell on. Thank you Deb for honoring me with this award.

Alright, it is my turn to tag some blogs for awards. It is so hard as I want to include all, but I will keep this to only four as that seems to be the number tagged. First, I will tag Karen for encouraging me to participate in Lisa's Online Bible Study. Second, I'll tag Leigh for she has some really encouraging posts and it is exciting to read what the Lord is doing with her. Third, is Annie of Annie's Eyes for her rich nuggets that just seem to reach me where ever I am in mind or emotions. And lastly, Jen who makes me laugh and remember what it was like to be a young mother. All of you sisters are soooooo sweet. I'm sorry if I didnt pick your blog. I tried to chose those who havent been tagged yet so we can spread the encouragement. :-)

I want to thank all you for for reading and posting comments. I also want to thank all of you who read and dont leave comments. I know you are out there as some of you have told me. I pray the Lord bless you all.

Bummer about the chocolate basket. I do not think I would have had so much self control - I love chocolate especially dark chocolate.
God bless,
Kim
