Encouragement Dose


Today I am honored to announce that Angie awarded me The Daily Dose award that's been circulating. Thank you Angie that you like to stop by my blog and that somehow--by God's grace able to inspire you. I pray that I'm able to be some sort of inspiration by reflecting Jesus.

This award was created by a friend of Lisa, The Preacher's Wife. She describes the award this way:

So here's to all the blogs that you've discovered that you can't possibly live without. They make you laugh, cry, think and feel connected every time you read a post. They give you a thrill as you see them loading into your browser and you get an equally satisfying thrill when you see that they have commented on your blog
.

Now I'm to pass this award on to five of my daily reads. I don't or can't always read blogs daily, but I shall choose a few of my regulars. I've seen this award circulating around already for some time, so I'm going to choose those I like to visit that have not yet received the award. Please stop by and visit these lovely ladies and leave a kind comment.

Daughter of the King- Marina -- When I visit your blog, I like the way you can laugh at situations that normally would make a girl (woman) cry. I was so inspired by your last post about how we look at others and ourselves. I caught myself remembering what you wrote when I encountered a precious woman of God at church who had burn scars on her neck. Thank you.

The T.A.G. Blog- Karen -- I have been so moved by your testimony and your faith. Your transparency through your blog has so inspired me to walk my faith walk. I enjoy the weekly Sabbath Reflections. I enjoy reading the scriptures and being enlightened by the expositions you share, either your own or resources you have. Thank you.

The Point- Leah
-- I enjoy stopping by to get "the Point." I always feel like I'm pointed toward the Lord through what He reveals to you. I enjoy pondering on the post for several days. Thank you.

Jen's Blurbs- Jen -- I enjoy stopping by to see what the Lord is doing in you & through you. I love the stories about the boys. I also enjoy the enthusiasm you have when you learn from the Word. It keeps me excited and feeling young. Thank you.

Lisa's Memories - Lisa
-- Lisa we live in the same town and I shall make it a point to come by to meet you and visit you personally. The poetry always speaks to my heart when I stop by you blog. I pray that you will be inspired to keep writing. Thank you for writing faithfully.

There are many more of you whom I visit. I would love to visit and comment more than I do, but I have so many other duties that beckon my attention. I started blogging last June and I cant believe all the great and exciting friends I've made. I thank all of you and love you all. As Angie mentioned, I look forward to San Antonio. I hope to meet all of you blogging friends in real life. May you all be blessed!

Blessings in Christ--
