Blog Award Nominations

Academy AwardThank you Lord!  I needed this!

The Lord must have whispered in the ears of my blogging sisters, telling them I needed encouragement because when I checked my blog I felt like I walked into the Academy Awards. Wow-three (3) awards! I am incredibly grateful, honored, humbled and uplifted!

Since all three awards have basically the same acceptance rules, I will combine my acceptance speeches by posting all three at once.

Reality AwardThe Rules for accepting this award are as follows:

1. Display the award logo on your blog.

2. Link back to the person who nominated you.

The Water BearerInner Angels and Enemies

3. Answer the Questions

4. Pass the award  to any other bloggers you want —link to one of their specific posts so that they get notified by ping back


REALITY Blog Award Questions: A few I answered more completely in former posts, so I inserted the links.

 If you could change something what would you change?

I love the changes God brings into my life especially when God “turned my wailing into dancing; removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy” Psalm 30:11.  More about Celebrating Change

If you could relive one day, when would it be?

My wedding day – I would marry my husband a hundred times over again! It was a perfect day thanks to God and my hubby!

What’s one thing that really scares you?

Wicked people.

What one dream have you not completed yet, and do you think you will be able to complete it?

I love school!  I could go to college forever! I always wanted to earn my doctorate and God-willing – I will! Two degrees down and one to go!

If you could be someone else for a day, who would you be?

I enjoy putting myself into scripture, putting myself into the sandals of one of our biblical sisters – usually the wild ones. Caught in the Act
