Me? An Award? Wow !!

I am so surprised and honored to have received my very first blog award! I received it from Julie on her Surrendered Scribe blog.

I feel blessed with this honor because my purpose for this blog was to share with others what God has given to me. I have been given a treasure box of experiences that have helped me with my Christian growth, and I want to pass it on to others. The honor is the Lord's for using me to touch others. I dedicate this ministry to Him, to use as He wills.

The Art Y Pico award is given to those who inspire others with their creative energy and talents in writing, artwork, design or contributions to the community. What does the expression mean? Well, apparently it doesn’t exactly translate to English, but it loosely translates to, “Wow. The Best Art. Over the top.” (This was taken from the Art Y Pico blog.)

As a recipient of this award, I have been asked to share the award with five blogs that bless me. There are many people in my life who are "over the top" to me, but they don't have a blog. Some reach out to others through email or with a steady faithfulness or by opening their arms to those around them.

I pass this award to...

~ my parents, who have taught me to stretch out my hand to those in need, physically or emotionally or spiritually, to see others through God's eyes

~ my husband, who is so practical and sensible and keeps me on the ground, and also so patient and supporting with my writing

~ my children, who are blazing their own trails of life and learning the lessons of trusting God's will in their decisions

~ my writer friends, who understand me, encourage me, and pray for me, and also are being used of Lord to bless others with their writing

~ mothers, who realize that their most important job is to teach their children about God through the daily routines of life

You are my winners!

You are definitely deserving, dear Vonnie - and that is wonderful that you passed it on to those you love the most, irrespective of their familiarity with "blogdom."
