A Desire of My Heart!!

First of all I would like to say, LORD, Thank You!(:.  Secondly, I want to say, "Thank you!" and give a BIG virtual hug to my blogging friend Stacie from "No Idle Bread"  for giving me this Blog Award!!! 

{I received this award about a month ago.  I wanted to adhere to the Blog award rules and that's why it has taken me awhile to post.}   

I have always desired a Blog Award...   Psalm 37:4:
   4Delight thyself also in the LORD: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.  As I told Stacie, I hadn't spoken these words aloud.  God is so faithful to his word.  It cannot lie(:

Now, as I've learned, blog awards come with these rules:

  1. Thank and link back to the person who awarded you this award
  2. Share 7 things about yourself
  3. Award 15 recently discovered great bloggers
  4. Contact these bloggers and tell them about the award
Rule #2:  Seven things about myself.

1.  I have a twin sister (Bertha).  I am the oldest by five minutes(:
2.  I am an Army Veteran (Captain).
3.  I served in Operation Iraqi Freedom 05'-06'.
4.  I like marksmanship.
5.  I am a former educator and home-schooler.
6.  I looove ice cream(:
7.  My word for life is "evolve".

Rule #3: Award fifteen recently discovered great bloggers.  

 I enjoy stopping by and/or following these blogs.  I gain insight and perspective!  The fifteen awardees are:


Rule #4:  Contact the blog awardees

I'm on it!! Awardees, again, I value and appreciate your insight and perspective!(:

"Choose Life"

Until next time....

**Please know that I understand, not everyone likes blog awards. My intent is not to offend but to let you know your words are appreciated. Also, if you choose not to participate in the "rules" of the award, I am okay with that too!**

  2. Hi Mrs Gertha

    Thank you for awarding my blog this award! Love your word for life.. if we don't we can't really experience all that life has to offer. I don't understand why anyone would not be thrilled to know that others appreciate their blog (maybe its too much trouble to pass it on?) Anyway, thank you again and God bless!
