My First Award!

Mrs. Bridget G. of The Lord's Beautiful Things
gave me this award






The rules of this award are:

to give it to five other blogging sisters

and to confess five things I'm addicted to.


I have to say, it was really hard to limit myself to five giveaways. I think many blogs and the women behind them are fabulous but I am a rule follower so I will play along ;)

With that said, I award the "Fabulous" award to:

• Sarah at Thread of Grace

• Kim at This Little House

• Alice at The Emmett Crew

• Lisa at Elbows On Our Table

• Cora at Hidden Riches From Secret Places

All these women are amazing to me and all of them inspire me which is fabulous.

Now for the second part of this award (which I'm probably taking too seriously) is to list five things I'm addicted to.

I really don't like this word. I've seen too much actual, destructive addiction in real life so I had to find a more positive way to look at this list.

I looked up the word addicted and the definition I'm using is, "enthusiastically devoted to."

So with that said here are my five "addictions"-

• Jesus

• My husband

• My children

• Blogging

• My electric blanket

Thank you all my blogging buddies that inspire me in my walk with the Lord and in my role as a wife and mother. You are all fabulous--award or not :)

Lainie said...

I don't have 800! 799 maybe but not 800! hee hee.

I don't do Facebook and I don't Twitter. I don't watch TV and very rarely a movie. So keeping up with Mishmash is my only regular "other" thing besides keeping up with the kiddos.

The other two don't take a lot of time and with Mishmash... I have wrestled for so long with even doing this but now that I've decided yes this is what I'm supposed to do right now, it feels "light"-- you know, the Lord :)

If it ever feels heavy, I'll know to stop ;)

I'll pray for you and for the Lord to show you if you should continue blogging.

I would miss you in the blogosphere though :(

Ann said...

sleep? What is the definition of that...I might be getting it but I don't think sooo...:) hehehehe

Lisa said...

Wow. I don't know what to say! Except, similar to Alicen's comment, I have been scarce in my posting lately- I guess I'd better get crackin' and earn this award!

Thank you. That is so, so sweet, especially coming from someone who inspires ME!!!

Blessings to you my friend!

Lainie said...

Lisa, You earning necessary, it's been given to you. It's your for the taking ;)

Sarah Sanders said...

I know I'm late responding....(see blog for explanation) *smile*

...and I'm with the other girls - my posting has been sporadic lately - what a wonderful surprise to re-enter the blogging world with!

Lainie, what can I say...I am completely humbled and amazed. You are so sweet to nominate me for an award - you bless, edify and encourage and for this, I am most grateful.

Humbled,
Sarah
