WRITTEN ON STONES


Jennifer, my wonderful friend living in New Mexico and the first blogger whose wonderful voice I was priveleged to hear when she called me, has issued the following challenge:
My challenge to my blog friends is this: write 8 of your blog friends names in a unique way and post them. Then come back over and let me know. You must write the blogger's name that tagged you, then add 7 others. Be creative and if possible use the natural wonders of the world!


When I first read this yesterday and saw Penless Writer written in the beautiful White Sands of New Mexico I thought......there is no way I am going to know what to do mine on although I loved the concept. Then I thought of my rocks, picked up from all over our travels, and decided to put my precious blogging friends names on them. At a later point in time I will tell you more about these particular stones and you will understand better why I chose this medium.

Here are my 7 choices. As always, if you wish to not participate in this challenge that is permitted.



Of My Life as Annie. Annie is a fairly new blog friend of mine, and a fellow Okie!!! Annie has a sweet and wonderful outlook and a deep faith and trust in our God. I am so very thankful I have met her.


Of A Frazzled Farm Wife. I've been following Christ since she began her blog and commented on mine. Her life, as that Frazzled Farm Wife, is about as different as night and day from mine. I love how she shares their farm life and it is so interesting and informative to me because I've never been exposed to farming. I also admired the close knit family that she, her husband, son & daughter are.



Of Living to Learn & Learning to Live. I've named Leigh Ann for so many things, and I know she was also pegged by Jennifer at the start of all this. BUT, I could not list these name with out hers because she has been such an encouragement and help to me, almost from day one of my blogging. She was also the second one to call me!!!!




Of Just A Thought is also one of my dearest blog friends and just like Leigh Ann I have to have a stone for Ginger. Ginger always has the most wonderful pictures and words to bless us with. I admire her open and tender heart. Ginger blessed and surprised me with a phone call, too.





Of Pearlie Gates. Pealie is my dear, dear precious friend from Malaysia. Pearlie blesses me with her deep study and thinking on the scriptures. Again, she and I are about as different as night and day. She is very, VERY deep thinking and I am very, VERY simple. As always, God is so wonderful to bring people who aren't just like us to add such a wonderful dimension to our lives. I appreciate and treasure you very much my sweet friend from so far away.





Of Rocking Chair Reflections. Linds is the first person I met from the United Kingdom and her name is very misleading. She is anything but a person sitting in a Rocking Chair!!! She is, and has been facing, very difficult circumstances in the lost of her dear husband with a grace, faith and steadiness that I admire so much. She also has the most divine sense of humor and many times I find myself laughing out laugh. I treasure you dear sweet friend.







Of Ramblings from an English Garden. Barbara & I have about decided we were twins and we just didn't know about the other. I've already written about all the things we have in common. What we do not have in common is her beautiful English Garden which is such a delight. Also, she has retained her slim girlish figure and mine has vanished! She has given me the biggest shock so far in blogging when she phoned me from across the pond. I'm still reeling from that one and loving to tell everyone about it.

I'm happy to do this but cannot do it for a few weeks. I am trying this week to begin with my Oxford trip posts. Am away next week. Then I also have 2 other tags waiting to be done so I'll add this one to that list and will let you know when it's done. Will look forward to hearing about your stones.
