MY 2ND BLOG-A-VERSARY!!!

When I timidly posted my first post on January 21, 2007, here, I had absolutely NO idea what a blessing blogging was going to be to not only my life, but my very heart & soul. I had no idea how many wonderful friends I would be making, and that I would actually be meeting some (so far 7!!!) of there new friends from far away in person.



I had no idea that God would lead me to begin a Prayer Blog, Hearts In "1" Accord, and what a blessing it would be, as of this writing, for 23 of us lift up our united hearts to our Lord & Savior on a daily basis.



Last year, on my 1st blog-a-versary, I began 2 yearly awards that I wanted to give each year. You can go here to see the two from last year. Leigh Ann for the Angel Award & Karen for the True to His Word Award.
*************


This year my two awards go to:


PENLESS WRITER'S 2ND ANNUAL
ANGEL AWARD
January 21, 2009
Ginger of Just A Thought


All of you who follow Ginger's blog know that this Angel Award certainly describes her. She is a lovely wife and mother, but most of all she is a loving and faithful child of the Living God. Ginger is a real blessing to my life, a member of the Hearts Prayer Blog, and someone I got to meet in real life.......at midnight at a McD's!!!!! You are a living Angel in my life, Ginger.



PENLESS WRITERS ' 2ND ANNUAL
TRUTH TO HIS WORD AWARD
JANUARY 21, 2009
BOB OF AN EYE FOR REDEMPTION


Bob is one who writes wonderful posts about Our Lord & Savior and his posts really make you think!!!! I appreciate someone who stretches me and makes me evaluate my beliefs. Bob has the ability to do that. If you are not familiar with his blog I invite you to pay him a visit.

Thanks for letting me put my little 2 cents into this wonderful world of blogging!!!
Thank you to my faithful readers.
Thank you to my family & friends who humor me as I take all the pictures
and then allow me to blog about them.
Thank you to my wonderful Lord & Savior who gives me life
and life abundant!!!!!!

"...and who is this Penless Writer?" That was the buzz when you first popped on the blogging scene. Thankfully those of us who were curious about you found you to be a dear and priceless friend.

We no longer ask "who?", but instead smile and say, "Oh yeah, I know her and she's the best!"

Love you Susan!

Hi Susan. You started blogging almost exactly a year before I did. I have had the same experience. I had no idea what a wonderful world of blogging was out there. I was reluctant to start one blog and now I have three and a half (counting Spiritual Sundays that I share with Ginger).
Happy Anniversary.

Happy Celebrating to You!!! I hope that someday I will be one of the bloggers who has been privileged to meet you IRL. You are such a faithful servant and witness to our Lord. Thank you for blessing my days with your wisdom and encouragement.

And the most important thing about scrapbooking is that the stories and the pictures are preserved, no matter what the format. I'd love to see some things about those 4 years in the RV! Thank you for making time to visit me regularly. Have a happy day!!
