I was happily surprised and honored to receive The Sisters In Faith Award from Cathy @ A Bit Of The Blarney. Cathy's blog is so Faith-filled and so inspiring, and I am grateful that she chose me as one of her "new" Sisters In Faith.
As a recipient of this award you are asked to pass it to those who reflect the spirit of this award and the instructions are:
1. Pass this award to sisters who have been blogging with you from the beginning.
2. Include at least one new Sister In Faith.
Well, I wanted to make sure I understood exactly what this award was all about so I went in search of the creator of this award and I found it was Karinann @ Blessings for the Day. Her blog is beautiful and spiritually enriching. In her post about this award she wrote: "For my final post of 2009 here on Blessings, I thought I would celebrate the gift of spiritual sisterhood. God has used this special medium of the blogosphere to bring many of us together who might under the usual circumstances of life, may never have crossed paths. I am grateful for those who have joined me on my spiritual path. As 2009 ends and 2010 begins I wanted to say thank you to all of my spiritual sisters who help and encourage me along this journey of faith. To do this, I created this little blog award called The Sisters In Faith Award."
I loved what Karinann had to say and her words speak what is in my heart.
She went on to say that while she would like to award everyone on her blog roll, she was going to single out the few that had been blogging with her from the very beginning and she was going to include at least one new follower. So in keeping with that spirit the two Sisters In Faith who I have been blogging with since the very beginning are: 1. Marcy @ Blessings Each Day 2. Diana @ Welcome To My World
I think that Marcy has already been awarded this but I had to list her as she was my very first friend from the Village to pay me a visit and Diana was soon after. I really should include you all, because you have all helped me along my spiritual journey these past months, and I am so grateful to you all. And I hope that in turn Diana and Marcy will help to spread this beautiful award throughout the Village because you are all so deserving.
I love my life. There is not one person I can think of that I would want to change places with. The older I get the more comfortable I am with myself, and each day makes me more grateful for the Blessings God Has Bestowed on me. Truly, my cup runneth over.
