The Mystery Blogger Award

img_0671Gail over at Gail Loves God nominated me for the Mystery Blogger Award. Gail is one of the most supportive bloggers out there. Gail loves God, and it is evident in all her post, poems, comments, and encouragement. If you haven’t visited Gail’s blog, you should. You will love her kind, sweet enthusiasm. Gail is honest, and a kind, loving soul. Gail writes beautiful poetry too :):)

Before I get started, Gail had nominated me for something back in December, and I had just done the award. I declined Gail’s kind nomination for that reason, and I felt horrible about it later. Gail I apologize for that, and I promised God that if Gail ever nominated me for something, even if I had just did it that very day, that I would never decline her again. Ok, on to the award :):):)

Rules:

• Thank whoever nominated you and include link to their blog
• Tell your readers 3 things about yourself
• Nominate 10-20 bloggers you feel deserve the award
• Answer the questions from the person who nominated you
• Ask your nominees 5 questions of your choice with one weird or funny one
• Notify your nominees by commenting on their blog

3 Thing About Myself:

  1. I love God
  2. I love Jesus
  3. I love God’s Word

Gails Questions for the Nominees:

  1. Do you need special prayer for anything? Feel free to comment or my page or through the Contact page as well as in your answer, to let me know how I can pray for you.  I only that you ask God to make the person He wants me to be, and thank Him for it :)
  2. Do you know someone else who needs a prayer for anything? I would love to pray for them too! I ask that you pray that the world turns to God, accepts Jesus as their Lord, and Saviour, that they love God, and their neighbors, and then thank Him for it :)
  3. Do you do a daily reading/devotion? I read 6 chapters in my Bible everyday. I talk to God non-stop.  The blogs here on wordpress provide me with extra nourishment.
  4. What season is it where you live? I think, officially it’s spring but today the temps are in the low 80’s, so it feels like summer.
  5. If you could sit down and have an undisturbed dinner with Jesus, what would you like to talk with Him about? I would ask Him why would He give His life for us. What is it like in heaven. What is it like being the Son of God.

As always, if you want to participate you are nominated :):) I only have one question:

  1. If you knew God was standing right beside you, would you do things differently?

Thank you again Gail for the nomination :):)

God, I ask You to bless everyone that is reading this :):)

 

Sunshine Nordic Little Thoughts

img_0620Ray at raynotbradbury.com nominated me for this Sunshine Nordic Little Thoughts award/challenge/tag. I wasn’t quite sure which it is but I’ll give it a try. I didn’t know what to do but Ray said to read the thought, and write “your 3 associations (what comes on your mind when you read it) ” I love Ray.  She is very creative, witty, kind, and writes about a variety of subjects. Ray is quite talented, and has always been so very nice to me :) If you haven’t visited Ray’s blog, you really should, you will enjoy it.

The rules are simple:

Here’s the thought:

“When I can’t see myself in the mirror, I can’t even feel myself, and I begin to wonder if I exist at all.”

Give me your first 3 associations 🙂 and be creative (a poem, a flash story… a photo?).

  1. LORD, thank You for giving me other things to contemplate :)
  2. You existed Jean-Paul, I am reading your words.
  3. I can always see myself, with or without a mirror, I can always feel myself, and if I am wondering then that is a cogent indicator that I exist :):)

Ok Ray, I hope I didn’t mess that up :):) Thanks again for thinking of me :):)

God, I ask You to bless everyone who is reading this :)

The Mystery Blogger Award

The-Mystery-Blogger-Award-2

I want to thank Cindy at Chronic Pain with a Higher Perspective for nominating me for the Mystery Blogger AwardCindy writes an inspiring blog about dealing with chronic pain, and offers support to others. If you haven’t visited Cindy’s blog, I pray you go over and meet her.

Rules:

  • Thank whoever nominated you and include link to their blog
  • Tell your readers 3 things about yourself
  • Nominate 10-20 bloggers you feel deserve the award
  • Answer the questions from the person who nominated you
  • Ask your nominees 5 questions of your choice with one weird or funny one
  • Notify your nominees by commenting on their blog

3 Things About Me:

  1. I’d rather be home than any other place in the world.
  2. I recently found out 2 things about my health. I was having bouts of exhaustion that would be so bad, that I could barely think or put a sentence together, much less do physical activities. After going to my doctor he said, “Are you happy? Me, “yes”. My doctor says, “Good because you are going to live forever. You have the bloodwork of a teenager.” Praise God.  So, then what’s wrong with me? He said that my immune system is in overdrive trying to kill a dormant virus that everyone has, well almost everyone. The actual number was 95% of the population. Mine is dormant too but for some reason my immune system is trying to kill this thing, with a vengeance, as indicated by the number of antibodies it is producing. Praise God because He is giving me the strength to get through this.
  3. I don’t like owing money. If I want something I save for it.

Cindy’s questions and my answers are:

  1. If money was no object, what would you do all day? The same thing I do now :) God had blessed me, and I am content :):)
  2. Aside from necessities, what one thing could you not go a day without? My Bible
  3. Who would you want to play you in a movie of your life? Wow, that would be a snoozefest of a movie, but I’ll say Angelina Jolie
  4. What are your 2018 goals? To be the person God wants me to be :)
  5. Who is your favorite musical band? It’s hard to pick just one. So, I’ll throw out the one singing the last song I was listening to: Creed

My Nominees:
-Any one who wants to participate.

My question, as always, there’s just one:
If today was your last day on earth, how would you spend it?

I again want to thank Cindy at Chronic Pain with a Higher Perspective for nominating me.

I ask God to bless you :)
