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 :):)

The Challenge question on The Word is:

After God, and the Bible, what other sources give you spiritual inspiration?

Thank you for participating. God Bless you :)

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 :)

 

Quote Challenge Day 3

Grace over at a beautiful blog, Following Him Beside Still Waters, nominated me for the Quote Challenge. Now, you aren’t seeing double. I did this last week too but it was fun so why not do it again :):) Grace was actually nominated 3 times, and is doing it for 9 days. I pray you will visit Grace at Following Him Beside Still Waters, and read not only her quotes but also the wonderful inspiration Grace provides there.

Rules:
Thank the person who nominated you.
Post a quote for three consecutive days (1 quote for each day).
Share why this quote appeals so much to you.
Nominate 3 different bloggers for each day.

Quote for day three:

“And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.” — Matthew 18:3

Why I like this quote:

Because there it is Brothers, and Sisters! We don’t have to know it all, do children? We don’t have to pick it apart, be the expert, know all these theologies, know all the answers, decipher all the scriptures, do children do that? Jesus is telling us, No! We just have to humble ourselves, like children, and just believe like a child believes, loves, understands. Praise God. He makes it so easy even us fleshy humans can achieve it :)

As always, if you want to participate, then you are nominated :):)

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

Quote Challenge Day 2

Grace over at a beautiful blog, Following Him Beside Still Waters, nominated me for the Quote Challenge. Now, you aren’t seeing double. I did this last week too but it was fun so why not do it again :):) Grace was actually nominated 3 times, and is doing it for 9 days. I pray you will visit Grace at Following Him Beside Still Waters, and read not only her quotes but also the wonderful inspiration Grace provides there.

Rules:
Thank the person who nominated you.
Post a quote for three consecutive days (1 quote for each day).
Share why this quote appeals so much to you.
Nominate 3 different bloggers for each day.

Quote for day two:

“For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:38-39

Why I like this quote:

Until I read this quote from Paul, I was determined to live the best God filled life I could but I had been such a rotten person that I was certainly going to hell. But I told God, even though, I knew, I was hell bound, that I would still try my best to use the rest of my life to be the person He wanted me to be. This verse made me realize that NOTHING could separate me from God’s love, and that I was not a lost cause. That salvation was mine too, if I only believed :):)

As always, if you want to participate, then you are nominated :):)

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

Quote Challenge Day 1

Grace over at a beautiful blog, Following Him Beside Still Waters, nominated me for the Quote Challenge. Now, you aren’t seeing double. I did this last week too but it was fun so why not do it again :):) Grace was actually nominated 3 times, and is doing it for 9 days. I pray you will visit Grace at Following Him Beside Still Waters, and read not only her quotes but also the wonderful inspiration Grace provides there.

Rules:
Thank the person who nominated you.
Post a quote for three consecutive days (1 quote for each day).
Share why this quote appeals so much to you.
Nominate 3 different bloggers for each day.

Quote for day one:

“And to man He said, Behold, the fear of the LORD, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding. — Job 28:28

Why I like this quote:

Because the LORD lays it all out here doesn’t He? Everyone wants wisdom, and understanding, well God is telling us right in these words how to achieve that :):) It’s not in some long theology book, or paper, it’s right here in a really short simple sentence :):)

As always, if you want to participate, then you are nominated :):)

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

 

Quote Challenge day 3

Carly at My Ink Smears nominated me for the Quote Challenge day 1. Here is Carly’s Quote Challenge day 2, and her Quote Challenge day 3. Carly has a wonderful blog and if you haven’t had a chance to meet Carly, I pray you will stop over at her blog. Carly writes about her faith, and life. There is always something good to read there.

Rules:
Thank the person who nominated you.
Post a quote for three consecutive days (1 quote for each day).
Share why this quote appeals so much to you.
Nominate 3 different bloggers for each day.

Quote for day three:

“Then said the LORD, Doest thou well to be angry?” Jonah 4:4

Why I like this quote:

I love this quote because it can be used everyday, or at least for me. God is telling me what does this anger accomplish for me? Is it helping me? Is it making things better for me? Is it doing me any good to be angry? The answer is always no, it does none of those things for me. Do I get angry? Lots of times, more than I should, and very angry but it does not do me well to be so :):) As always, God is right :)

Of course, if you want to participate, then you are nominated :):)

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