Liebster Award

25 05 2013

{As a newbie, it took me a while to figure out how to do this…a half a day, to be exact! I apologize for the very long delay in passing on this award. Bless you all for the beauty and inspiration you bring to my life through your words.}

What a sweet surprise. Journey of Thankfulness nominated this blog for a Liebster Award. Hers is a blog about cultivating a spirit of thanksgiving. She says, “If we want to break free from our chains of loneliness we must change how we look at – our world, our life, our family, our friends, mankind and God.”

11 Facts About Me (mmm…)

1. I have seven kids and eleven grandkids.

2. Most of my kids and grandkids live at the four corners of the United States – I don’t understand God’s ways, but I’m doing my best to trust that He has good reason for this!

3. I love the ocean.

4. Music is my greatest passion next to Jesus. I don’t have blood in my veins, instead I have sound waves.

5. I drive a PT Cruiser. Although it takes a country mile to turn around and I’m a wannabe race car driver, I intend to drive this car for the rest of my life.

6. Jesus is my hero.

7. My favorite book EVER is the Bible.

My answers to Journey:

1. My favorite color is a toss-up between purple and pink

2. If I won the lottery I would send what the government didn’t take to Krin Krin and Puerta Cabezas, Nicaragua for orphanages.

3. Chocolate or vanilla? Are you kidding, isn’t chocolate one of the food groups?

5. My favorite part of the day is from midnight to 2 a.m. My best talks with the Lord happen when there are no distractions.
