Two Blog Awards

Maggie over at Dreaming of Guatemala nominated me for 2 awards. Thank you Maggie and if you haven’t visited Maggie’s blog, I highly recommend it.  It’s always uplifting, inspiring, and there are tasty recipes there too :)

The Sunshine Blogger Award

My Answers to Maggie’s Questions:

1. What is your all-time favorite TV show and why? The Young and the Restless. It’s been on forever, and I watched it with my Granny growing up.
2. Do you collect anything? Not really, unless pearls count. I have dozens of pearl necklaces of all lengths(even ones that hang to my knees) and it’s hard to pass them by when I see one.
3. What are few songs that you’ve been loving to listen to lately? LOL, I listen to the same songs I listened to for decades :) 
4. How do you blog – careful planning and following a schedule, or on a whim? I read my Bible, and post whatever verses speak to me that day.
5. Why did you name your blog what you did? The Word seemed like an obvious choice since I mostly post God’s Word :)
6. Have you ever met any famous people? How and where did you meet them? Nope none that I can remember.
7. Do you wear glasses or contacts? Glasses, if I am reading but it will be all the time pretty soon.
8. What’s your favorite place to shop for clothes? What was the last thing you bought there? I don’t have one.  All the clothes I have bought, for the past few years,  have been because I was in a store and they had something I liked, or had been wanting and it was on clearance. Which of course I attribute to God knowing I wanted it, and He’d put it in front of me for a price I would pay, BLESSINGS
9. Who’s your favorite Disney animal sidekick? Goofy, of course :)

Question for My Nominees:

1. If you could ask God any thing, what would it be? It doesn’t have to be 1 thing, it can be multiple. It doesn’t have to be something you need or someone else needs, any question about anything. Or as many questions as you like, that’s why I only put in 1 question. I hope I am not breaking any rules :)


My Nominees:

I never know who wants to be nominated, who is “award-free” and who isn’t :) I don’t think anyone I have ever nominated has ever participated, for those 2 reasons LOL :) Which is ok, I completely understand, and it doesn’t hurt my feelings, at all. So, this time I’ll just let anyone who wants to participate,  can participate.

Note for the nominees: To accept this award, simply answer my questions and nominate more people to pass on the love!

The Mystery Blogger Award

3 Things About Myself:

1. I live in the same state I was born in, and I have lived here all my life.
2. I love mowing grass :)
3. I like staying home. If I didn’t have to leave my house, I wouldn’t. Some people say that, that would drive them crazy. I never understand this because I would be very content.

My Answers to Maggie’s  5 Questions:

1. What is something you used to despise, but actually quite like now? Cleaning
2. When was the last time you laughed really hard? It had to be something my husband did. He does things that crack me up like nothing else. 
3. What’s the best book that you read recently? Why did you enjoy it? The Bible(bet you didn’t see that coming) I enjoy it because I learn something new everyday, it makes me happy, it lifts me up, it humbles me, it makes me appreciative, it makes me overjoyed, it makes me cry, and so many more feelings that are too many to write.
4. Name 5 of your favorite movies. Gone with the Wind, Deadpool, MI(all of them) All about Eve, Mildred Pierce.
5. What are you the most thankful for? Wait for it, God :)

My Best or Favorite Posts:

*all my posts are my favourite, they are Gods Word, but these each have verses that mean a lot to me, and you will see me post them every year when I start reading my Bible again and get back to that verse. There are actually MORE but Maggie said 3 :)

Questions for My Nominees:

1. Share something that God has done for you. It can be one thing or as many things as you would like to share.

My Nominees:

I never know who wants to be nominated, who is “award-free” and who isn’t :) I don’t think anyone I have ever nominated has ever participated, for those 2 reasons LOL :) Which is ok, I completely understand, and it doesn’t hurt my feelings, at all. So, this time I’ll just let anyone who wants to participate,  can participate.

Note for the nominees: To accept this award, tell us three things about yourself, answer my questions, and share three of your favorite posts! Then pass it on to other bloggers by giving them some new questions to answer.

God bless you!

      1. :) I understand – I remembered reading a comment of yours on another blog in which you said you were going on vacation, so I didn’t expect you to see this right away.

        Did you have fun on your holiday? :D

      2. Yes we did! We went to the mountains, did all the sites and some hiking. It was great fun, and I got lots of pictures of waterfalls to post with the daily Bible verses. Thank you so much for understanding and asking about our trip :) It’s always a pleasure to see you :)

      3. Oh, how fun! :D Mountains are really awesome, aren’t they? I haven’t been in years, but the Ozarks were incredible.

        I saw one of the last you posted, and it was so beautiful!! 😍

        :) It’s always a pleasure to see you too! :) ♥

  1. Congratulations :) Fun reading your answers. I loved the Mildred Pierce series (with Kate Winslet right?) so good. I’m not into awards but I like encouraging others.

  2. Congratulations!! It was great to learn more about you, Margaret. I have fond memories of watching The Young and the Restless with my nan too! That was the first show I got sucked into when I was younger XD

    1. lol…Yes Y & R is certainly a classic. They have some of the same actor/actresses that have been on there for decades. Fun to watch how they have changed. I really appreciate you taking the time to visit with me. I’m thankful Maggie interviewed you, or I might never have found your wonderful blog :)

  3. Great answers! I remember liking The Bold & the Beautiful! And I was not surprised when you said that the Bible is the best book you’ve read recently. It’s true that one can learn something new every day. Beautiful book! I like staying at home too! It’s the best place to be… well, after church.

    1. hahaha I am predictable if nothing else. Home is my solace. I use to work 7 days a week 12 to 14 hours a days. When I was a teen into my early 20’s, whereas all my friends worked 8 hours a day, I had 2 jobs and was only OFF 8 hours a day. Sometimes less. So, being able to stay at home is very welcome blessing to me. :)

    1. Thank you. I’m happy you enjoy it. It was fun to do. I broke the rules a little bit by only asking one question for each award but I figured they were big questions lol. I appreciate you taking time to stop by and visit me. It’s all way a pleasure to see you. :):)


    1. Thank you! Maggie is too sweet to me :) It mean the world the kind things you have said about the blog. God is blessing me with all kinds of encouragement today from people who come to read His Word. It fills me with such joy. Thank you for always being so kind, and generous with you time and encouragement! :):) Not to mention the wonderful journeys you share with all of us on your blog :)

  4. Lovely answers, Margaret :) I loved reading them. The Bible is definitely one of my favorite books, too! I don’t know what I’d do without it. Gone With The Wind is such an amazing movie – did you know that I grew up in the town where the author wrote the book? Speaking of which, I’m going to be reading that soon! Thanks again for writing about these awards!

    1. Thank you Maggie! You are such a joy to me!!! It was my pleasure. I had no idea that you grew up in the town where it was written. I haven’t ever read the book. I know it will be different from the movie, the books always are. Let me know how it is and maybe I will read it :)

      1. Yeah, I didn’t understand what the big deal was about the book/movie until I watched the film. Haha! There’s an awesome souvenir shop that’s inside the old train depot in the downtown area; they have sooo many collector’s items and other GWTW gifts. :) I will! I’m looking forward to reading it.
