I was humbled to receive the Arte y Pico (meaning “Peak of Art”) award over the weekend from Laurie Ann. I enjoy her blog for a number of reasons. My heart is warmed by her love for her family, especially her husband. As we all know, God sometimes chooses to grant us the desires of our heart in ways unlike we had hoped. The thing I most appreciate about Laurie Ann is that she embraces those blessings with a grateful heart. Her posts range from faith challenging and thought provoking to light-hearted and fun. Please stop by and visit, especially if you haven’t seen her beautiful new look!
As a recipient of this award, I have been asked to share it with five blogs that bless my life. I have chosen:
Cheryl (Hope for Each New Day)
Lori (I Will Take it Lord, All You Have to Give)
Melanie (Fruits of the Spirit)
Paula (His Ways are not Our Ways)
Tricia (It’s all About Him)
Incidentally, Alexis (aka Chickie Momma) also recently shared this award with me. Alexis has an enormous heart, is loaded with personality, is extraordinarily talented and lots of fun. Her blog is such a blessing because it allows me (a city girl) to experience farm life, through the adventures of her family. I’ve been pondering five additional blogs that bless me. They are:
Amydeanne (160 Acre Woods)
Nancie (More than Conquerers)
Peggy (Mazes, Messes, Miracles...aMazing Grace)
Tracy (Thirsty for Him)
All of these are extraordinary women of faith, some serving here in the US, others who find themselves in faraway places. Regardless of where they reside in the physical sense, we're all travelling the same road Home, brought together by God for such a time as this. I visit them frequently because I learn something different through the unique gifts of each and every one. If any of these are new to you, stop by and check them out. (Expect to be blessed!)
Congratulations friends! The “official instructions” follow. Now go forth and share the love!
