Just recently I was telling my husband that I wasn’t sure if I should continue blogging into the New Year. But yesterday, when I was finally able to get on my site again, I found that some of my blogging friends had nominated me for this award:
What kindness they’ve shown by acknowledging my very meager efforts to give God glory through this medium. In many ways they are part of the reason I keep on. It’s really from them I have gained insights, overcome apprehensions, seen another angle on a point of faith and walked away from the computer screen many a morning replacing a serious frown with a hope filled smile.
Thank you first to Nancy who blogs at The Cloistered Heart and The Breadbox Letters. I can’t remember how we found each other, I only know it took just one visit to her site to realize I’d found a kindred spirit. Visits to either of her blogs will teach you how to focus on the only thing that really matters: our love for Christ above all. She manages this while being a presence on other blogs through kind and very encouraging comments.
Next, thanks to Patricia at The Holy Face of Jesus; she’s the best friend I’ve ever had whom I’ve never met face to face. There is a joy and sweetness reflected in her posts revealing the fruits of her meditation and praise before the Lord. That she shares them with us all is really a blessing we’ll only know fully one day in Heaven.
And to Karinann at Daughter of the King. There couldn’t be a more appropriate name for her blog, for as His daughter, she launches into the deep in her love for Scripture which I share with her. Though far in miles, she’s in my heart and prayers every time I see her name in my comment box.
Now, I’ll name a few of my favorite bloggers and pass along the rules for the participants of this award:
1 Select the blog(s) you think deserve the ‘Blog of the Year 2012′ Award
2 Write a blog post and tell us about the blog(s) you have chosen — there’s no minimum or maximum number of blogs required — and ‘present’ them with their award.
3 Please include a link back to this page: — http://thethoughtpalette.co.uk/our-awards/blog-of-the-year-2012-award/(please don’t alter the rules or the badges!)
4 Let the blog(s) you have chosen know that you have given them this award and share the ‘rules’ with them.
5 You can now also join our Facebook group — click ‘like’ on this page ‘Blog of the Year 2012′ Award Facebook group and then you can share your blog with an even wider audience.
6 As a winner of the award — please add a link back to the blog that presented you with the award — and then proudly display the award on your blog and sidebar … and start collecting stars…
Yes — that’s right — there are stars to collect!
Unlike other awards which you can only add to your blog once — this award is different!
When you begin you will receive the ’1 star’ award — and every time you are given the award by another blog — you can add another star!
There are a total of 6 stars to collect.
Which means that you can check out your favorite blogs — and even if they have already been given the award by someone else — you can still bestow it on them again and help them to reach the maximum 6 stars!
Let another praise you, and not your own mouth; a stranger, and not your own lips.
And now for the blogs, some old and new friends, who have been an inspiration to me because of their willingness to bring the light of Christ into a world so in need of His mercy and love. Thank you for your witness to the faith.
