The King of Kings Friendship Award was given to me on 3/23 by my blogging friend and inspiring photographer and writer Francine. http://francineinretirement.wordpress.com/2012/03/23/a-word-about-friendships/. and then Nia @ Photography of Nia gave it to me , too…http://photographyofnia.com/2012/04/18/another-award-and-memories/
I want to express my deep and humble appreciation to both of these bloggers. Their appreciation for my writing and my expressions of faith mean so very much.
Francine had this to say about the award: “some call it a Blessing instead of an Award, you can accept it as you feel in your heart to or not. And if you feel you would like to pass it on to encourage others in the Body of Christ and in the Family of God..there are no rules or set requirements, you are under no obligation in any way, it’s just our way of offering thankfulness for the blessing you are by willingly choosing from the heart to walk fully in the beauty of the person God is conforming you to be by the empowering of The Holy Spirit, which is the image of His Awesome Son…” Nia, lovely and kind Nia, expressed her feelings of love and friendship when passing the award on to me and to others.
So today, I will begin responding to people and offering them the King of Kings Award. But know this: today I also officially extend the King of Kings Award to each person reading this post. There are connections between us and I extend my heart and words to each of you. Your appreciation for my words is demonstrated each time you stop by. that renews my heart each moment. May God bless your day and life deeply and richly. May He give you the courage to, as Garrison Keillor says, “get up and do what must be done”.
I have given it to Debra @ http://breathelighter.wordpress.com/. and also to my pal Terri at http://dailysweetpeas.com/. Don’t you just LOVE that name? and to Marcia Clark @ http://mecwrites25.wordpress.com/ Check these three WONDERFUL ladies out!But wait! There’s more: my lovely Barefoot Baroness at http://tonij.wordpress.com.~sometimes red-hatted, and often with the passion of love and justice, always wonderful. I will continue to search for recipients that haven’t received it—but either way I urge you to boldly step forward. I have gotten really kinda shy about finding recipients…..I seem to be procrastinating!!
