Thank You

I thank my God upon every remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine making request for you all with joy, for your fellowship in the gospel from the first day until now. Philippians 1:3-5

I am very thankful. I have been given another opportunity to tell my friends who visit here how grateful I am to have met you all. Since my tentative steps in April when I began this blog, there have been more and more people who have come into my blogging life who have been encouragers in the faith and have given every indication of being true disciples of the same Savior who I am trying to serve here at this little corner of the internet.

Well, Kathy at Sumballo, one of those true disciples, has been a dear and passed on to me the Mathetes Award, which originated at Management by God. It is given to those acting in the role of a disciple of Christ. Kathy serves God by doing helpful and in depth Bible studies, as well as sweet and reflective devotionals which will touch your heart. I appreciate her so much and she's one of the reasons I enjoy blogging so much. Thanks so much, Kathy.

And I must say that those of you who have been so faithful to the little "ministry" going on here are also on my list of blessings. So, I am not going to NAME people to pass this award to as I am supposed to. You might be interested in reading my response to the award last week when it was given at my other blog. That helps to explain things. So, ALL of you sweet sisters who come by from time to time are hereby awarded this badge from me. EACH of you deserves it! In every visit I make to your respective corners, I see proof of your discipleship, which is evident in a way that is peculiar to YOU. I cannot bring it into my heart to just pick out just five of you. (Hopefully, someday I'll have a few brothers to add on too.) I love you all and appreciate each one of you and hope we can keep visiting each other this way!

Congratulations on another award! You get a lot of these ... and you never pass them on. :) Love you, Maxine! You've got one of the sweetest hearts I've known. Hope you have a great weekend!

Thanks, Tanya! Actually, I do pass them on! I just don't name names. Pretty, sneaky, huh? I used to do it the "right" way, but lately have not been able to bring myself to do it that way. Thanks for those words, Sweetie. Luv u 2.

Yay! We have similar taste in music. :)I like listening to different classical music when going from blog to blog- the music relaxes me. I need to visit this site more- this is such a beautiful blog you have here!

How wonderful!

Now, someone beat me to it! LOL! Oh, well, I was just awarded this too by a friend and had you on my list. (I still have to write the post.)

If you don't mind, I'm still going to include you on my pics because I want others to know about your wonderful blogsite that so honors the Lord Jesus!

Maxine said...

Thanks, Sara! Hope to see you come more, too! Been missing you at NF.

Susan, that is so sweet of you. Thanks for understanding, though. I appreciate your Christian spirit and I love coming to your blog. You are VERY worthy of this award. I'll be over to see you soon!
