Awards And A Special Thank You

This is a special thank you for Kavi of for nominating me for two awards. I started blogging to address some stress issues and have found it to be very rewarding. So it is always very nice when someone else finds it rewarding also. It is also quite nice to share blogs that you enjoy reading and nominate them as well.

The Very Inspiring Blogger Award requires that I share 7 things about myself, so here goes:

1) I am an Episcopal Priest

2) I have a black belt in karate

3) One of my most favorite destinations was South Africa – a very beautiful country

4) I enjoy listening to music

5) I hope to publish a book one day

6) Writing has become a passion close to preaching

7) Soon I hope to start a women’s ministry.

  The second award from Kavi is the Lovely Blog Award. I am again thankful because I hope that love is the message that is heard in my writing. Both awards require that I nominate 15 blogs that inspire me and shares a lovely message.  All are really great sites and I hope you enjoy them as well.

And the nominees are:

Resting in His Grace


In Love With The Lord

Soul Dipper

Lost Pines church of Christ

I wonder what God taught me today

Nissi Knows!


Hodgepodge 4 the Soul

In My Opinion…


Simplie Beloved

All are really great sites and I hope you enjoy them as well

  1. Deirdre, you amaze me…not only a black belt in faith, but also one in Karate! 🙂 Thank you so very much for my nomination for the Lovely Blog award. Although I admit feeling very privileged to be given recognition from such a quality person, please forgive my saying that I’ve declared myself out of the Award stream. I’ve received many fabulous nominations and have teared over with many of them.

    In my newer days, there would be times when I was very near quitting. Someone would come to me with an award. I’d be bowled over and was good for another few months. 🙂

    However, here’s where I am today. Please pass it along to a newer blog. Awards are essential for newer bloggers; especially supporting the writers who come within a hair’s breadth of giving up. I keep my eye open for just such hints from these newer people and comment my encouragement. Again, thank you.

    Like you, I read as I can. I don’t get around to all subscribed blogs all the time, but I visit when I can. I cherish my subscription list. Your blog is one of them.

    Thank you very much.

    • Thank you so much for your comment and suggestion of which I definitely will heed. I figured that some of the people I may have nominated may have already been inundated with awards but because I too don’t always get to all of the blogs to which I subscribe I realize there are some I go to more regularly than others and don’t always let them know how much I really appreciate them. As I settle into my own writing I am still surprised when someone nominates me. I will certainly keep my eye on some of the newer blogs because I too remember when I wanted to give up (occasionally still do) but I do enjoy sharing what God has given me and his spirit moves. I do so admire where you are and thank you for your affirmation of faith – because although nice, we really don’t do this for awards do we? God bless you my Sister in faith. Peace
