Channel of Healing has passed along this Perseverance Award to 8 of us. Her comment for me was: "Penless Writer you have truly preserved".
Thank you so much. I truly appreciate this award because it honors a trait that I truly admire - that of perseverance. "Perseverance" = to continue doing something in spite of difficulty, opposition, etc. This is another word for the fourth attribute of the Fruit of the Spirit - "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law." Galatians 5:22-23
I am passing this award along to:
Mynra - Cherish the Word - Mynra just lost her beloved husband of 38 years, Lee, on March 22th. Mynra you have truly persevered during Lee's long illness and I know you will persevere during this time of adjustment with your loss.
Jennifer - Pen of Jen & Double Nickle Farm - Jennifer personifies the word perseverance as she and her husband have adjusted to life after her husband being involved in a horrible accident and now setting up a brand new life on their Double Nickle Farm.
Retha - Retha's Rambles - Retha is a young wife and mother who lives in South Africa. I must admit some of her posts bring tears to my eyes when I read of her struggles with the situation they find themselves in. You are truly an example of perseverance Retha as you cling to your faith.
Linds - Rocking Chair Reflections - Linds is another of my blog friends who lost her husband tragically a little over a year ago. She is facing the adjustments she has been confronted with not only perseverance but maintaining a wonderful sense of humor while doing it.
These are 4 wonderful, persevering woman I have selected to pass on this very special Award to. I am so thankful that each of you blog and that I have had the privilege to "meet" you via blogland and be inspired by your walk. Each of you 4 inspire me greatly.
