The Very Inspiring Blogger Award

No one is as excited and surprised as I, to be nominated for this awesome award! Thank you Dan Riegler from !

Dan said, “The Very Inspiring Blogger Award, is the first award I came across online. I don’t remember where I saw it winking at me from a sidebar, but I remember thinking to myself, how cool is this, a community of creative people, writing, blogging, sharing and creating community standards, and awards to promote those standards., hmmmmm, wouldn’t it be nice….. And now, well it is hard to believe folks! I feel honoured, flattered and a little tongue-tied.. They say Jupiter and Venus are kissing in the zodiac right now, and there are pleasant surprises for us all.  So there you go. Thanks!”.

Thank you Dan for this honor you have bestowed upon my little blog. You are much too kind!

This prestigious award does come with rules though….

“Along with the honor of receiving the Very Inspiring Blogger Award, there are a few obligations. Most have to do with perpetuating the award, and passing it forward. Below, are the guidelines, or rules for any of you whom I have nominated, if you choose to accept the award. There is no obligation to accept it, however, I hope enough of you will carry the torch forward to the continued benefit of the blogosphere, by supporting  and encouraging bloggers who inspire you and contribute to standards you would like to see.

One of the requirements is, one must nominate 15 other bloggers that one finds inspiring. I picked 10:

Apothecary’s Garden
Scentual Soundtracks
The Angel Whisperer
Kai Moves (Kai is a beautiful creative dance fitness class by a remarkable woman and angel on Earth)
The Eggless Tort
Domestic Diva MD
New Heaven on Earth

And without further ado…

here they are, RULES FOR THE “VERY INSPIRING BLOGGER” AWARD:

5. Nominate 15 other bloggers for the award.

6. Contact your nominees to let them know you have nominated them. Provide a link to your post.

7. Proudly display the award logo (or buttons) to your blog, whether on your side bar, ABOUT page, or a special page for awards. Let other bloggers see right up front that you are an award winner and HAVE participated in the award process (there should be an award for that all by itself!).

Here is a link for nominees that may provide some extra information on the award and how to proceed. Some of the technical bits.

So now to follow all the rules I suppose I must list 7 things about me… really? is this part really necessary? LOL

ok, well, ummmmmm, I really love angels. And music…all kinds! I’m totally addicted to Spotify. Music is a constant inspiration for me!! And oh how I love essential oils…truly God’s healing gifts!. And dancing! I couldn’t live without helping someone at least once a day…it lifts my spirits! I also adore curling up with a good book and getting lost in a wonderful story. 🙂 If you like reading too… here’s a link to the best novels of 2013 on amazon. 🙂

Blessings to you and yours this holiday season!! xoxo

Merry Christmas

The blur of another year comes around again, and much sooner than expected!

It never fails, I’m no sooner taking down the Christmas decorations and doing a bit of spring cleaning, then summer comes with all its glory manifesting into Thanksgiving and leaving us here yet again with our hopes for Christmastime to last juusst a bit longer…I just can’t keep up….so that’s it….I’ve given up on tring to keep up…from now on, my calendar is broken.
I’ll be either very very early with Christmas and Birthday’s, or a bit late, depending on God’s time….not my time, GOD’s time…..and that’s just the way it is….
If anyone asks I’ll just say,
“You’ll have to take it up with my boss”.

And doncha’ know it…..
Christmas is always merrier when you share it with family and friends!

here’s a couple on the spot Christmas poems just for you 🙂

Stop worrying about the lights being just so,
even if the presents aren’t all tied in a bow,
The ham may be charred beyond all recognition,
and the bills may be piled to kingdom come’s kitchen,
but we all have eachother to love…
Just pray a little thanks for all your blessings
and may God shine that light
on all you’re stressing
there’s more important things to consider
when looking in a mirror
than the number of lines that have been etched by our times
they’re memories, each and everyone…
so remember, even if our errors and trials succeed or fail…
we all have eachother to love 🙂

Christmas 2008

It’s the day before Christmas Eve and all through the house
Everyone was fretting, even the mouse.
The rooms were all in tatters, the beds were still unmade,
The cheese was still sitting out from last night’s Christmas soiree.

“Oh, my”, said the mommy with tears in her eyes,
“How will we ever be ready for tomorrow night?”
“The house must be cleaned, the presents all need wrapping, and the cookies must be just right for Santa’s midnight snacking”.

And Daddy piped in with his own worries too,
“There’s no gifts for little Suzi this year, no dolls, or even shoes.
I was laid off from work, and the bills are stacking up I’m afraid,
Whatever will we do with no bonuses paid?”

It seemed everyone was upset about one thing or another,
From taxes going up, to the economy going asunder,
There’s wars being fought, for freedoms from poverty, greed & hunger,
Things that would terrify any waking father or mother.

What a sad sight to see, this sorry state of affairs
Had grown overwhelming, in dire need of repair.
“Oh what will we do,” cried the masses is despair,
Who can we turn to when all seems so lost and unfair?”

Then a star overhead shone brilliant & bright
To remind us of why we celebrate Christmas Night.
Jesus was born to save us from all our worries & woes,
Our sins are forgiven, our hearts would evermore overflow.

And maybe, just maybe, for one united eve & day
We could all rejoice in our blessings, Thank GOD for each and every day
Whether by loving eachother, or sharing our joy,
Let’s celebrate GOD’s love for us for every girl and boy.

Merry Christmas!
