I got this comment this morning from Alyson at Algarve Blog (the creator of the award) and thought I would pass it on for all of you that have received the ABC Award but have not received this information.  She asks that we please pass the info on to our readers.

Congratulations on your ABC Award! As the originator of this award you may be interested to know that I have now set up a Facebook group for all bloggers who have been given the ABC Award – a place for you to meet new bloggers, and share and support each other. You can join the group here: Please also let any other bloggers, that you know have been given the award, know about this group too – then we can all ‘spread the word’ I have also set up a Facebook page – the ABC Award – where you can now add links to all of your blog posts and writing – share your work with a new audience, gain new readers, and find out what other ABC Award bloggers are writing about. You can find the page here: Just ‘like’ the page and get started – and do let all your blog readers know about this page – I believe that all of our blogs can only be improved by letting our readers know about other blogs – that way you will also have new readers discover you too! Happy blogging – and congratulations again on the ABC Award – you’re awesome!


Melissa at iamnotshe nominated me for the Sunshine Award.  These are the requirements:

Step 1:

Thank nominator:

Dear Melis, thank you for the nomination. You have become dear to me in the few short months we have been visiting each other.   Please forgive me for taking a shortcut here and not sticking to the rules.

Step 2:  Tell something about myself.  The following list is what I am supposed to divulge the answers to; but try as I might, I can not  come up with answers that would bring the attention to my Lord without claiming some of that attention for myself.  So, I will leave the list here, for those of you that care to accept my nomination.

Favorite Color

Favorite animal

Favorite Number

Non-alcoholic drink

Facebook or Twitter

My Passion

Getting or Giving presents

Favorite Pattern

Day of the Week


Step 3:  Nominate 10 bloggers for the award.

It is getting increasingly hard to get bloggers that want to accept awards and take the spotlight away from the sole purpose for their blogs – to bring Glory to God.  So I am going to [somewhat] follow Karin‘s idea and say that if you are here, reading this, then more than likely your blog has blessed me and brought sunshine to my day.  Please feel free, all of you, to take this as a nomination and accept or reject as you see fit.

For those of you new here, please check out my blogroll on the right and go visit the people I regularly come into contact with through this world of blogging.  These are the people that I would nominate for all awards with many thanks for being such a blessing to others.

Praying each and every one of you has a blessed day.
