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

Blessings: Genuine Blogger Award

I give thanks and praise to God for every blessing. Today a special appreciation and humble thank you to Martha Shaw author of a really wonderful and inspirational blog site for blessing me with this nomination. My ministry is to spread God’s word. Since I’ve started my blog I have encountered so many great blog sites with the same premise to spread God’s word with the hope of encouraging others to also believe.  I have also met others who write to share life experience through poetry and prose, which can be very enlightening. I now have the honor of nominating others. Thank you again Martha for the opportunity.
