It's like Christmas!

It seems to be time to pass out awards.
If you have not gotten one --you are getting ready to get one NOW.
I think these awards are fun and something sweet we can give to each other.
We won't give them too much honor--
because we all know that we would rather be storing up those awards in Heaven.
But, I don't think God apposes us giving each other a little pat.
So let's have some fun.
This award came to me from all the way over on the other side of the world. Pretty cool.
It came from my tomorrow girl. Better known as Karen from Karen's Ramblings. She does not even know how many times her sweet comments and insights have brought a smile to my heart. Love ya girl.
There have been many times when the weight of the world seems to have been camping out on my shoulders. Something that happens quite often for those of us who think too much. It is at those times that all of your sweet words have lifted my spirit.
So this first award will go to all my girls.
Yes, even those of you who are newbies. :)
And yes, I am even going to give this to those of ya'll who read and do not comment. Why? Because I know you are out there and it makes me feel good to know that you gave a few minutes of your busy day to read what came out of my heart and sometimes just my brain.
You are sweet!
There is not a lot of info on this award---- so I will just tell you to grab the picture and pass it on.
If you grab this award--PLEASE, leave a HELLO.
Thank YOU--it will be fun to see all you lurkers.

This next award is a tad more serious in nature.
I do not pass this one out-- without thought.
It is,
The Mathetes AwardHere is a little info from the main site
Mathetes is the Greek word for disciple, and the role of the disciple (per the Great Commission) it to make more disciples. I'd like to take the opportunity to award five other bloggers with this award and badge for acting in the role of a disciple of Christ. These five all share the message in their own creative ways, and I admire them all for what they do.

In the spirit of this award, the rules are simple. Winners of this award must pick five other "disciples" to pass it on to. As you pass it on, I just ask that you mention and provide links for (1)this post as the originator of the award (Dan King of management by God), (2) the person that awarded it to you, and then (3) name and sites of the five that you believe are fulfilling the role of a disciple of Christ..
We are all called to be disciples once we come to know Christ as our LORD.
But, there are some blogs that hit me in my spiritual gut. Hope that does not sound silly.
Some are starting out and some have been walking with and for Him for a while.
No one really knows who we truly are but our Father.
So, I hand these out for what I see in blogdom.
I thank you for being a word from our Father in my life.

I can only pick 5, so here goes.......

Iris from Sting My Heart
Holly From CrownLaidDown
And if she won't take it and even if she does :) --- My girl Nicki of Three Girly Girlz
Karen from Karen's Ramblings
Ann from Holy Experience
Connie from Little Red Hearts From God

Sorry, don't like limits.
Thank you girls.


Karen said...

Oooh Oooh, I feel supremely blessed. Yes we are playing award tag and pass the love. Thank you for your kind comments. I had a hideous day yesterday, one of those parenting days that did not go well, and seemed to get worse before it got better. Involved the spilling of red food colouring amongst other things - and yet, the Lord in his grace showed this flawed being mercy and the day that is today, is beautiful and I am glad for it. Just had a wonderful morning with Claire (she is on my links). Must blog that. Isn't it funny, we do all these things and have the 'must blog that' thought. Love you xxx

Blessing upon blessing to you!

Nicki said...

Thank you my sweet friend!!! You are awesome! Praying that you have a very spirit led day!! I did post this morning, but I'm just having a hard time getting my thoughts into words this week.....maybe I'll send you an e-mail later, there are just to many people who read my blog that I don't want to share some stuff with. It's hard to explain!

Melanie said...

It is like Christmas!! This is the 4th award I've recieved this week. I'm going to do one big post about it next week. Thanks!! And you are very deserving of both awards.

CrownLaidDown said...

Well, thank you, sweet friend! I will post next week, I promise!!

You are a fun friend and I think that God has made you with so many gifts!!

I love your Garden of Eden discussion...I have wondered that myself...hmmm. I alos wonder about the angels guarding it. What do they look like?

Off to do family time!

Ann V.@HolyExperience said...

Sharon, Jesus is using your writings here to build up His body. Thank you for co-laboring with Him here in this place. He uses you!

I am deeply humbled by your grace...

I send much love...

Andrea said...

I am a first time reader of your blog. I was just given the "You life Me Up" award from Melanie over at Our Happy Happenings and she linked you as giving the award to her. So I thought I'd come and check you out...and I love your blog! You are inspiring and motivating and you love the Lord. Glad that I stopped by and I will most certainly visit again!!

Theresa said...
