Alrightly then posting awards!!

I was given this precious award from Denise at Shorty Bears Place This is what it is all about. This is what she said about the award: What is on my heart this morning is Encouragement. A word of hope or affirmation is a real blessing to building one another up - with the view of leading us closer to God.I have been really encouraged, inspired, challenged and stirred up by a lot of posts that I have read. They have drawn me closer to God, desiring to follow in His Footsteps more and more.So, with that in mind I have designed this Award called "You Encourage me to follow in his Footsteps!

Thank you Denise and I am giving right back to you!! I will pass this on to :

I am not going to write about each person because they all encourage me daily to follow in HIS footsteps!!

Wonderful awards that you are receiving how cool. Thanks for giving my daughter one. She cannot blog like she would like too because of her day care and raising 3 teenagers and one 8 year old. I give her credit for what she can do!! Smile!! Hope you are having a great weekend. I worked this morning and now it is time for us to take off to Saturday night church. Blessings, Sandy
Oh hope you are feeling better!!

Lazy Daisy said...

Oh wow, you are going to have to start a blog just for all your awards. Thank you for the shout out. I'm always glad to know something that I've written has had an impact on anyone. Hope you are continuing to progress with your arm. Gotcha all prayed up.

Donetta said...

Oh girl I sure hope that your shoulder gets better quickly. It looks like you are well loved and missed It is so nice to see you back.

Melanie said...

Thank you Grams!! I have an award for you. Stop by to check it out!

Flip Flop Floozie said...

Carolyn, I am heading off to Illinois early in the morning on a plane. My mother had to take dad to the hospital today. he is suffering from memory loss and did not know where he was at all. I wanted you to know so that you can pray for him..Dale and Jeri..Thanks. Sandy

Hope said...

Grams, thanks so much for your tip on fixing those blog awards on the sidebar. I've been trying since I got my very first one from you to size those pictures. It just stands to reason if you check the "shrink to fit" box that it would do just that!! Oh well, I guess you can't use common sense on Blogger!! LOL

Thanks again!

Love and Hugs,

Hope said...

PS: Even though this hint came originally from Kelly, I STILL think you're very smart!! :0)

Linda said...

Good evening Carolyn. Hope your arm is still improving. I'm glad Sandy told you about her Dad. I was planning on telling you when I stopped by. We will need to pray that he comes through ok.

I want to Thank You for the lovely awards. I just got them posted.

Hope you are having a relaxing Sunday.

I'm just dropping by to see how you are doing. I do hope and pray that your arm is getting better and that you are feeling better as well. It has finally warmed up here.
