And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine? There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this stranger. — Luke 17:17-18

I tell you that He will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall He find faith on the earth? — Luke 18:8

This verse was shared with me by Maria at Pilgrim’s Progress revisited, so I’m sharing it with you :):) Thank you Maria :)

Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before Him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon His name. And they shall be Mine, saith the LORD of hosts, in that day when I make up My jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him. Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth Him not. Malachi 3:16-18

Bloggers Support Bloggers

bloggers support bloggers buttonJirah Merizz tagged me for this Bloggers Support Bloggers Challenge. #bloggerssupportbloggers. I do apologize to you Jirah. I am usually very prompt with such things but y’all know I have not been feeling the best in the word. I also want to apologize to my blogging family because I have not been as visible, or vocal in commenting. My immune system is giving me a fit. I am exhausted 90% of the time, the other 10% I am trying to catch up on life duties, family matters, chores, etc. Some days I can barely put sentences together BUT God is good, and has this, and me. Praise God! The blog, and all of you have been neglected. For that I am truly sorry. I miss all of you, and your blogs. The encouragement, your adventures, and inspiration.

Ok, back to the task at hand. Jirah was kind enough to challenge me to spread some love to our blogging family, with this Bloggers Support Bloggers Challenge. This I am happy to do :):) This is in no particular order, except for the first 2 :):) I guess I can’t say “Jirah” since she tagged me but Jirah, I love you :):)

Rules:

  1. Thank the one who has tagged you for this challenge and link their blogsite.
  2. Add the official photo in your page.
  3. List at least 5 bloggers you like. (Suggestion: You can list up 3 bloggers that you’ve known for a long time and you can also list up 2 newbies or more. It’s up to you though!)
  4. In 5 sentences or above, give a short description about why you love the blogger.
  5. Tag at least 3 bloggers to do the challenge.
  6. Put #bloggerssupportbloggers in the Tags section so whenever a blogger is looking for new blogs to read, it will be easier to find!

Blogs I love :)

Diana at La Petit Muse now, I know Jirah already mentioned her but Diana is my beloved, my girl, my Sister.  She loves me as I am, is always there for me, will never forsake me or leave me alone. Oh wait, that is God but I tell ya, Diana is right there too. I love her! She is funny, and smart. She is full of knowledge, a great writer, supporter to all of our blogging community, and loves God. Visit Diana, and you will love her too :):)


Next, is Yaskhan, also known as Yassy. I love Yassy :):) She writes me the sweetest, most beautiful poetry. Ok, she writes it for all of us hahaha but I am in love with her sweet soul. Her love for others, and her giving nature :):) Visit Yassy, read some of her wonderful poetry, and you will love Yassy too :):)


Let’s see, who is next, oh yes, Elizabeth but I call her “E” because we are cool like that. I jest, she goes by both :):) E,  at Born in Providence, doesn’t post a whole lot but I am so happy when she does :) She always has me walking away thinking.  E is uplifting, supportive, and she is always willing to help you if you need it. :):) I love E :) Visit E, and after reading a few of her posts, you will love her too :):)


Who is next, oh my yes my Jill, my Jillybean, J-dub, Jilly Jilly bo billy banana…oh sorry I got carried away. Which, by the way is allowed over at Jill’s place which is called, J-Dubs Grin and Bear it.  As always, at Jill’s, there is always more to come :):) Jill is honest, humble, caring, doesn’t sugar coat it. She has a heart as big as Texas :) Jill talks about life, the nitty gritty, the good, the bad, the ugly. And that’s why I love Jill. Give her a visit, and I bet you will too :):)


Up next we have Daily Hopeful. I love Daily Hopeful for the uplifting, motivating, hopeful messages that she does each day. Daily Hopeful shares God’s Word, and insight to how she applies God’s Word to her life. I often find that it applies to mine as well. Daily Hopeful doesn’t tell you what you should do but she has a way of helping you see how much better things are if you follow God’s will for you. I love Daily Hopeful, and if you visit with her, I am sure you will too :):)


I’d love to introduce you to Ade2, or you can call her Bisi, you might also know her as Bisimodupe1975 from femininematerz.wordpress.com. However you know her then you will know why I love her so much. Ade2 accomplished, successful, and spreads such a wonderful message of awareness. She cares about people, and it shows. I love that Ade2 doesn’t just bring up an issue that is a problem, she gives solutions to go along with it. Go see what I mean, see why I love her, and you will love Ade2 in no time :):)


This post is getting longer by the minute, maybe I should have done a bullet point (?)


Miriam from The Showers of Blessings, my goodness, what can you say about Miriam. There aren’t enough keys on the keyboard to express how wonderful Miriam is. I’m not going to even try. If you don’t know Miriam, you are missing out, so stop missing out. Go fall in love with Miriam just like I did :):)


Cherylene, over at Living vs Existing is just a bundle of positive encouragement. Every post is full of words that will pick you up, make you feel love, get you out of any funk you might be in, help you get your head on straight. If you don’t know, and love Cherylene yet, like I love her, you will :)


Sweet Dori at Celebrate His Love,  I love Dori because everyday she post a Bible verse along with an encouraging thought. So really Dori post 2 encouraging thoughts, one from God, and one from her :):) I love you Dori :):) Please, please, PLEASE visit Dori, you will love her too.


Caz at Invisibly Me, is just amazing. I love Caz because she brings awareness to issues dealing with invisible illnesses. Caz is so supportive to the whole blogging community, gives great information, and is always willing to get out on that limb to help others. You can’t help but love Caz. Go see her, and see what I am talking about :):)


Grace at Following Him Beside Still Waters, is another amazing blogger who I love. I love Grace because she loves God, takes beautiful pictures to share with us, writes wonderful poems. What’s’ not to love. If you are looking for some examples of God’s beautiful creations, well not only is Grace one of those creations but so is her blog :):)


Beholding Him Ministries is another blogger I love. She gives me God’s Word each day, and also God filled post, talking about the scripture, and how it applies to us.  I always love the insight that she provides through her post. Go and see for yourself at Beholding Him Ministries, and you will see why I love her :):)


Oh my goodness, this could go on for weeks. I can hear y’all yawning :):) I am going to streamline this and do a bullet point of all the blogs I love. You don’t need me to tell you how wonderful they are, what they write about, or why you should visit their blogs.  If you want to know why, you can comment below, and I will list the reasons :):)

I know I have missed so many more of the bloggers, and blogs that I love. Please forgive me but this post has wore me out :):) I think it is officially the longest post ever done on this blog :):)

Thanks again to Jirah who started this all by wanting to spread the love of our fellow bloggers around.

I thank God for continuing to bless every one reading this :):)
