I was awarded by my dear friend Rebekah!!!! Thank-you so much Bekah! That was so sweet of you!
So here's what I am supposed to do:
1. Do a post about the person who awarded you, and their blog.
2. Give an award to 5 of your favorite blogs, give a reason, and leave a comment telling them why they have been rewarded
3.Give us ten scripture verses/passages that are especially dear to you
4. Have fun!
So here goes....
Bekah, I met Rebekah back in 2006 ( I think ;) and it really has been such a joy to know her! She has been a true friend and encourager all through these years. Although we live so far away from each other...every time I talk to her she is an encouragement to me! Thank you for your friendship Bekah, it sure means a lot to me! And...I have enjoyed your blog too ;)
I would also like to award Miss Jennifer. I have enjoyed getting to know her through her blog :)
I would also like to award Miss Raquel. I have not know her for very long, but it has been such a pleasure to get to know her better through her blog. She was the one who gave my blog a make-over! Thanks once again, Miss Raquel!
My sisters, Jennifer & Janalee.... They're at college right now, but they're both so special to me and I just could not leave them out ;)
And...I don't know of anyone else that hasn't been awarded yet, so I award it to all of my readers who would like to join in! Please feel free to do so!!!
Now... My favorite scripture passages are:
"I am crucified with Christ; nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me."
Psalms 139: 1-10
"O Lord, thou hast searched me, and known me. Thou knowest my down-sitting and mine uprising, thou understandest my thought afar off. Thou compassest my path and my lying down, and art acquainted with all my ways. For there is not a word in my tongue, but, lo, O Lord, thou knowest it altogether. Thou hast beset me behind and beforem and laid thine hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain unto it. Whither shall I go from thy Spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence? If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there. If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me."
"There is therefore now no comndemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit."
"And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to his purpose."
Philippians 4: 4-7
"Rejoice in the Lord always; and again I say, Rejoice. Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand. Be careful for nothing, but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your request be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus."
"O Give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good, for his mercy endureth forever."
I Peter 5:7
"Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you."
"Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him, and with his stripes we are healed."
" A gracious woman retaineth honour..."
"A friend loveth at all times, and a brother is born for advesrity."
I could continue to add so many more..but here are just a couple of my favorite verses and passages.
Wishing you a blessed day...
