Passing On Some Blog Love

A couple of weeks ago my wonderful, sweet, exuberant friend, Joanne Sher, at An Open Book, surprised and blessed me with the above blog award. I was so new at blogging I had to ask her what to do with it...I didn't even know how to put it on my page! She was kind enough to walk me through that, too. If you've never visited Joanne's blog be sure to stop in and say hello. She is a gifted writer whose joy just bubbles over, and her enthusiasm is contagious!

Two rules accompany this award:
1. Confess 5 things you are addicted to
2. Pass the award on to 5 deserving bloggers

I've chosen to exclude people from the 5 things I'm addicted to, since technically people aren't things. So here goes:

1. My computer. Surprised? I don't think my hubby had any idea how much time I would spend on my laptop when he gave it to me for Christmas four years ago. I take it everywhere I go.

2. Books. The Bible tops the list, then missionary biographies and books on Christian spirituality, next are childrens' books -especially alpahabet books.

3. Ice cream. This I blame on my parents, who owned a Dairy Sweet drive-in when I was young.

4. Music. I love to sing, play piano, and listen to contemporary Christian music.

5. Sudoku. This is a fairly recent addiction that I share with my husband.

Now the fun stuff...DRUM ROLL PLEASE..........................

The Blog Award is being passed to:

Betsy Markman at Just Another Clay Pot does a beautiful job of crafting thoughtful devotionals and in-depth studies of scripture passages.

Cheri and Wayne Hardaway at Glass House Ministries specialize in offering hope to hurting families. While candidly sharing their own struggles, God's love and compassion come through loud and clear.

Andrea at All God's Creatures writes one of the most unique blogs I've read. Her posts are written from her pets' perspective, and they are delightful to read!

I had the privilege of knowing Rachel at Finding Wonder in the Mundane from the time of her birth! Now she has a husband and a beautiful family of her own. Her life has taken many twists and turns with miscarriages and a little girl with special needs. Rachel writes with transparency, plenty of humor, and much raw feeling.

Because of my upcoming trip to Uganda a friend directed me to Katie's blog at The Journey. It's doubtful that Katie has time to read others' blogs, but once you pay her blog a visit you will be hooked! She is living the life of a modern day Amy Carmichael in Uganda. Her stories are amazing!

Congratulations, friends, and may you continue to spread the love of Jesus through your excellent writing!

  2. Sharlyn,
    Sitka and I are overwhelmed and shocked. Thank you. I, too will need to know how to put this on my blog. Andrea
    aperdue7@comcast.net is my email

  3. My hubby is also a Sudoku addict - I enjoy them as well, but don't NEED to do them ;)

    So glad you passed this on- I'm looking forward to checking these blogs out. (I LOVE spreading the love - don't you?)

  4. I am so jealous that your folks owned a dairy bar! Wow! Congrats on the award!

  5. Thanks for the blog award, and for fixing your comment form! :D
