My First Blogging Award!

Wow…Thank you, Joyce @, a special Mom raising a special child.  She nominated me for my first blogging award!  For those of you that aren’t familiar with the blogging world, these are just ways to encourage other bloggers and get their blog more publicity.


Here are the questions asked of me:

1. Why did you start blogging? To be honest, I really believe God put it in my heart. I’d been thinking about it for a long time and was convinced I needed to!
2. What book are you currently reading? I am in the process of reading through the Bible again. I often pick up the devotional, Jesus Calling and I just started reading the book, We All Married Idiots by Elaine Miller.


3. What is your favorite quote? Paul was quoting Isaiah 64 when he said, “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind can conceive what God has prepared for those who love Him.” 1 Corinthians 2:9

4. If you could visit any country in the world, where would you go?  Too many choices, but right now I’d have to say Madagascar!

5. What was the best gift you ever received? Besides the gift of salvation, I would have to say my family. Materialistically speaking? On my 25th wedding anniversary my sweet husband took me to Hawaii and on our anniversary he got down on one knee and proposed to me again… ring and all!


6. If you could request your last meal, what would it be? Anything as long as I am surrounded by my family.

7. What is your favorite room in your home? I would have to say my dining room because it holds many wonderful memories of family gatherings.
