Exhalting Christ Blog Award


https://jesusmyjoy.wordpress.com/exalting christ blog award

I was just given this wonderful award. There are no rules. I am to just put it on my blog site.

Here is some information about this wonderful friend of mine.

Today’s Verse for 01/06/2013

I will sing to the LORD all my life; I will sing praise to my God as long as I live. May my meditation be pleasing to him, as I rejoice in the LORD. — Psalm 104:33-34

Thought

Do you sing in the shower? What words are on your lips? Singing is such a wonderful gift! First, it is a gift from God to us, to help us express our joy, excitement, sorrow, and victory. Second, it is a gift from us to God, to help us communicate our respect, appreciation, love, and confidence in God. So let’s sing, praising God for what he has done, proclaiming what he will do, and sharing what he is currently doing in our lives!

Prayer

O God, Father in heaven, even your name is holy. Please exert your will over my heart, and the hearts of those in our world, so it more closely reflects your holy character. I trust you, dear LORD, for the food I need each day. I ask you, Holy Father, to forgive me as I release my bitterness and anger which I have held against those who have wounded me. Empower me, O God, to resist the temptations and deceptions of the Evil One. Please make my life a glorious witness to your grace. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

Reality Blog Award


http://justenoughsugar.wordpress.com

Melissa has nominated me for the Reality Blog Awardreality-blog-award

Here is a slice of who Melissa is;

“If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with success unexpected in common hours.” – Henry David Thoreau

My name is Melissa. I’m a baking enthusiast and amateur chef with latin roots from Long Island, New York. While I’ve always had this love for the kitchen, it has taken me a few years to realize that the only way I’ll be satisfied with life is by waking up everyday to bake; to make myself happy by making others happy. And thus this blog was born, to record my journey. I enjoy baking everything from cupcakes to alfajores and dream of owning a pastry shop one day. This is my long and bumpy road to that hopeful end.

It won’t be easy, but with just enough sugar, life is sweet.

1. If you could change one thing, what would you change? The love of sweets. I love sugar. I can stay away from sweets for so long. It amazes me though when I take one bite of a warm chocolate chip cookie, that I can not eat just one.

2. If you could repeat an age, what would it be? 19, when my first child was born. I looked into those big blue eyes and wrapped tiny fingers around mine, and I fell in love

3. What is one thing that really scares you? dying alone, with no one around. My nightmare is that I will die and no one will find me for days.

4. What is one dream you have not completed, and do you think you’ll be able to complete it? Publishing a book. I hope that before I pass on to another life, I see one book with my name on it on a bookshelf somewhere

5. If you could be someone else for one day, who would it be? Twiggy, I just want to know for one day what it is like to be thin.

Blog of The Year Award, 2012


http://destinepierdute.wordpress.com/

Late last evening I noticed that a blogger had nominated me for this award. It was so late, I asked her if it was alright to let it slide until this morning, and with her permission, I am now posting it.

I feel a little embarrassed as I know no other language but English. Maybe some of you do, so I will post what information is there on the home page.

Luisa

Salut tuturor!
Numele meu e Luisa si sunt aici pentru ca ador sa scriu!
In primul rand, as vrea sa spun cate ceva despre mine.
Inspiratia imi vine din cele mai simple lucruri, asa ca va puteti astepta de la orice din partea mea.
Pasiunile mele sunt literatura, muzica, pictura, filmele, actoria, revistele, statul la computer si cred ca am ceva ”talent” la inteles oamenii, ador sa privesc apusul, sa ma plimb atunci cand simt nevoia.
Desi nu cunosc multa lume, imi place sa stau ore intregi la telefon cu putinii prieteni adevarati.
Vreau sa le multumesc mult tuturor celor care citesc ceea ce scriu si celor care vor citi. Va astept parerile cu drag si sper sa nu va dezamagesc niciodata.
                                                     Cu sinceritate,
                                                                         Luisa.

Victoria G.

Buna tuturor!

Stiu ca este o formulare mai neoficiala, dar este unanim acceptata de toata lumea. Asadar ma voi descrie in cateva cuvinte.

Pseudonimul meu este Victoria G. si va scriu de pe meleagurile Olteniei, pentru a va aduce in casa si in suflet, bucuria si caldura, armonia si fericirea, muzicalitatea si fantezia cuvintelor minunate in povesti imbratisate.

Condeiul va fi cununa ce va uni inima mea de inima voastra, iar tot ce va lasa in urma, va fi o flacara albastra.

Sper ca va placut si cu aceasta inchei scurta mea prezentare. Sper sa nu va dezamagesc si cat sunteti voi alaturi de mine / de noi, totul o sa fie bine.

Va pup si va imbratisez cu drag, a voastra si pentru totdeauna, Victoria G.

 

Thank you so much for this wonderful award!!!!

Blog of The Year Award


Why do I Blog? http://ganeshraam.wordpress.comBlog of the Year Award banner 600

There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you…

Stories… Long I had thought what they real mean.

Are they certainly good…Or indeed bad?

Are they certainly true or an insane work of fiction?

We might have come across tragic stories of heroes, star crossed lovers or the high fantasy mythical ones… But for every tragic story, there are always few pushing the limits and boundaries to keep us happy and remind us that no matter how difficult the path we take, no matter how badly we might have screwed up, the end is always a happy one where everyone’s happy, live and kicking where some bring the enduring smile… some bring overwhelming tears and for some sporadic heartache…

This blog is my take on life, the amazing journeys through time, our fabulous societies and last but not the least… A comprehensive journey through time… My Unsettled Mind…

Ganesh has awarded me with this outstanding award. Ganesh is a brand new follower for me. I wanted to share some information about this blogger as I have put it above for you to read.

Thank-you again Ganesh for a wonderful and exciting award!

Very Inspiring Blog Award Nomination


http://mysecretloveforyou.wordpress.com

I was nominated today for this beautiful award. It was the icing on the cake for my day.very-inspiring-blogger-award

I reached down yesterday to pick up two sacks Al wanted me to bring home. I stretched a little but no big deal right? Wrong! I had to go to the grocery store after Al and my visit. As I was taking items out of the cart and placing them on the check out belt, I could barely reach into the deep cart. Pain seared through my shoulder and down my arm. I knew that I had injured the same nerve in my back and it had radiated its way enough to let me know that I had done bad.

Last evening I sat or laid most of the night. I babied it, medicated it with all I had available here at home. I could not sleep at my usual time. At five this morning, after more medications I finally fell asleep. I was woken by the phone at ten. I am sure I sounded like the town drunk as I walked through fog to make my part of the conversation human.

I slept most of the day. I woke up still sleepy but my body was trying to tell me that I was always awake at this time. I tried moving but ended back on the couch. Now I am awake obviously, or my spirit is writing without me! I have a smidgeon of pain but can move.

Here is a partial piece of the blogger who nominated me.

Bienvenidos a mi Blog, y gracias por interesarse en mis escritos.

Aqui encontraran mis pensamientos expresados en una variedad de escritos como Poemas, Cuentos, mis secciones Reflexiones Personales, Personal Thoughts y From the Heart, tambien escritos de editorial con temas de interes para compartir y discutir, espero les agrade.

This is who nominated me just now for this fine award.

This is what this blog is all about

stick person

treading up grassy hill

first drafts under arm

face sweaty

stick person

wee hours calling

waking before alarm

time to write

by Mary Ann Blinkhorn

What else can I say about me?  I started out with a passion for songwriting that led to words.  Though a late bloomer, I find myself writing every day.  I hope to post my new prose and poetry here regularly along with doodles and bits of photography.  In addition to this–I have become an aspiring screenwriter and I’m putting hundreds of hours into achieving this goal.

Thank-you so much for this award.

Please my friends. I could not leave this page empty without giving thanks to the one who nominated me. None of you have to comment on this. You have all commented to me before.

http://seriouslyrebecca.wordpress.com; has nominated me for the Blog of The Year, 2012.

I think I will have to sit down for this one; literally step a way, as tears are coming to my eyes. I can not believe I have been nominated so many times. Do you, my friends have any idea how I feel right now? You make me feel so special and loved.  My heart is exploding from the caring friends I have made on WordPress.

Rebecca, I just want to say a big thank-you for this wonderful award!

If you have not visited Rebecca’s blog page, now is the time. She is wonderfully upbeat. Here is a segment of her information.

Rebecca Dawn, I am 34 I live in a small northern city in Canada.
I’m outrageous, dramatic, impulsive, unique. I love to write and needed the creative freedom to do so, which is why i started blogging over five years ago. I write about anything and everything.
I would like to see harmony serenity peace and love in the world. One Heart One Love, its a song that should inspire us all.
Spirituality is the most important of my life, it has help me with uncertainty and overcome obstacles that come my way.
I love to laugh, i have a great sense of humor. I find pleasure in the littlest things. however my biggest pet peeve is disorganization! it must be my OCD lol!

blog of the yearThere were no rules to follow for this. Although if memory serves me, you are to tell several things about yourself; that others may find interesting.

You are also to nominate others; so they may reap the rewards of this outstanding award.

I have nothing new to say. I think all of you know more about me than I do myself.

I can say this:

I am taking Al to lunch today and to a store to buy a hot wheels car or two.

I am going to cause stink to spread in the facility, if his brand new shirt does not reappear today.

For Christmas baking in my spot in the world, I am baking sugar cookies, decorated in shapes of bells, reindeer, santas, trees. They hopefully will look so good, you will not be able to resist even one!

I am making fudge, peppermint bark, banana bread, among other edibles.

For nominations I would love for these friends to accept and acknowledge this award.

Blog of The Year Award!


Ivonne honored me with this wonderful award!

http://ivonnemontijo.wordpress.com

Ivonne is a wonderful woman with a heart of gold! Here is who she is, but make sure to go check out her blog for yourself!!!

Who am I? Hmnn….that is a question that I am always asking myself and that is always evolving and changing.

I have been a professional actress since the age of 17.

I have been clowning around and doing children’s entertainment since the age of 19, my “day job” so to speak.

I am currently getting receieved my M.A. degree in religious studies from CSULB in May 2011.

I decided that at the age of 50 I would start learning how to play the piano and guitar.

My passions are sex-religion-chocolate-the arts- travel and my dog Missy.  And now we will add music to that list.  Actually music should have always been there as I am a dancer and a dancer must have music.

This blog is where you will find pieces of my soul, my heart, my mind and hopefully my humor……

The ‘rules’ for this award are simple:

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

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!

            

I am not going to bore you with repeated words, since I have been nominated already, but I will nominate.

Blog of the Year Award


I can not do what I have done in the past in following the rules for this award, but nor can I pretend not to be excited, for receiving this award from Bird.

Bird was the first one to read my blog this past March when I began to write. She was the first reader, the first comment, she gave me my first award, and although she is going through some drama, she always remains a follower to me yet today.

Why don’t you go over to her page and get to know her. You won’t regret it. You can find her at,http://birdmartin.wordpress.com/2012/11/26/blog-of-the-year-2012/#comment-10474

Bird, I want to take this moment to thank you for giving me confidence, to help me stand strong, and to remind me to lean on no one but God when days are filled with sadness. I love ya Bird!!!!!!
