Love Ya!

Today I’m thanking Andrea from Arise 2 Write for her kindness to me. She gave me this Love Ya Award and then she told me I deserve it. This award is about friendship. I enjoy seeing friendships emerge among bloggers; it’s a taste of Heaven. So, I have to tell you, I feel very blessed that Andrea gave it to me. Now it’s my turn to pass it on. Here are the rules to follow:

The "Love Ya" Award states: These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to other bloggers who must choose to pass it on and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award!

Karen, at Lily Valley, writes with encouragement to those of us who enjoy praying for others. You’ll always learn something here!

Kay, at Dream Big, is a lovely woman of God and friend to people. Her humor lifts me.

Peter, at When I Am Weak, Then I am Strong, ministers about depression. He lifts me up every time I visit.

Debbie, at Heart Choices, is a friend to all. Every time I read Debbie’s writing, I see how she is eager to help people any way that she can. What a friend!

Loren, at The Magoos News, will touch your heart with her writing and she offers her friendship along with her inspiring words.

Christy Rose, at The Secret Life Of An American Wife and Mom, amazes me. She’s a busy one, but always has time to uplift a friend. Reading her comments is as inspiring as her writing.

I encourage you to visit my friends soon. Friendship is a gift from God. One of my favorite names of Jesus is “friend.” God bless and keep you today!
