Who me ???
I was away for the weekend and the last thing I expected to see this morning when I checked out my blog was that I had been awarded a 'Best Blog Award'. Dear sweet LV from 'Thoughts From Meme's Corner' http://livinatmemescorner.blogspot.com/ had included my little blog in her list of award recipients. To say I was surprised and humbled is an understatement!
You see, when I started this blog a few months ago I did so after 'lurking' and visiting so many wonderful blogs here in blogland. I was taken in by the beauty, artwork and friendship that lives here. I was finding myself inspired by the wonderful people that shared their talents and encouraged each other along the way. I wanted to be part of this community and so I started my own blog. I thought that it would be a good place for me to share my artwork.That however has yet to happen, since I am still trying to learn my way around the computer and scanning, loading and sharing pictures is something I've yet to master.
This blog has turned into something much different than I originally planned. It is a place where I have shared my thoughts, dreams and my faith. When I sit to write a new post, whether it be prompted by something as simple as Wishcasting Wednesday, following The Joy Diet or Spiritual Sundays, I always ask God to guide my words so that they might reflect His love. While my own personal ramblinngs unfold I hope that His influence shines through.
Whether I am drawing, painting, sewing or stitching it is God who guides my hands. My 'talents' are God's gift to me and so I choose to share them. While I am honored to recieve this award I cannot take full credit for the contents of my blog. As with my art, God guides my words. If I am smart enough to get out of the way and to let Him lead, good things flow...if I try to take control then I fall flat.
Thank you to all of you who have supported and encouraged me simply by reading and commenting on my posts. Your friendship means so much to me. Thank you to LV for an award that encouraged me to write today when I had planned on remaining silent. May God bless all of you and guide you always!
