Read about it on her blog...and please show your support...

And learn about protection from dangerous dogs here...and here...and here...

Sweet Carolyn at Magpie Pixie gave me this a few days ago...it makes me smile...


and I am truly humbled that Annie here...nominated me for The Mathetes Award for Excellence in Discipleship. Here's the quote from the original blog post explaining the award:


"Mathetes is the Greek word for disciple, and the role of the disciple (per the Great Commission) it to make more disciples. I'd like to take the opportunity to award five other bloggers with this award and badge for acting in the role of a disciple of Christ. These five all share the message in their own creative ways, and I admire them all for what they do.

Dan writes: In the spirit of this award, the rules are simple. Winners of this award must pick five other "disciples" to pass it on to. As you pass it on, I just ask that you mention and provide links for:

  1. this post as the originator of the award (Dan King of management by God),
  2. the person that awarded it to you, and then
  3. name and sites of the five that you believe are fulfilling the role of a disciple of Christ. I would love for many deserving bloggers to be blessed with this recognition.

The rules of participating:

  1. Copy this post.
  2. Reflect on five bloggers.
  3. Make sure you link this post so others can read it and the rules.
  4. Go leave your chosen bloggers a comment and let them know they’ve been given the award.
  5. Put the award icon on your site.

I will choose my five very carefully in the next few days... with prayerful reflection my first three children of God are:

here..."qualcosa di bello"...italian for something beautiful...and she is something very beautiful...her lovely spirit is living the life God planned for her with grace and deep faith...

here..."Britt-Arnhild's House in the Woods"...is a wonderful place to linger with tea...her joyous spirit overflows...her travels and her recipes are magical...

here..."tongue in cheek"...corey amaro brings a spiritual view to the every day...her caring spirit flows forth in every word and image she shares...

here..."sage and thyme"...sherry brings strength to everyone who reads her musings...

I just pray a blessing over the bloggers that receive this award, and ask that the Holy Spirit use them mightily as they share the Word of God with the world around them. May all of their efforts be fruitful, and their words carry the anointing of the Spirit of God. I Jesus' name, Amen!

Sweet Gillian tagged me for my weirdness...so here goes

  • I break into spontaneous dancing frequently...even without music...
  • I am very silly and very serious...does that mean seriously silly...
  • I love anything in miniature...well almost...
  • I must have piles of books around me everywhere...in bed, the car, by the couch, etc...
  • I eat hummus and flat bread for breakfast with a diet coke, kari/kajsa should understand...it used to be dry cheerios and diet coke...
  • I do not like to have my back exposed...I sit in the last row in a movie...and want my back to the wall in restaurants...but I love to be in the front row in church...go figure...
  • I eat things evenly...one bite for left , one for right...I match my m & m's two red, two blue, if the last ones don't match I give them away...
  • I am fascinated with the feedjit thingy on my blog...i love to watch it to see who is visiting...
  • it is cold here today & my furnace is broken...so i borrowed gloves from my studio stash to keep warm...one leather evening length and one cotton short length...i have used the mates in art...is this creative or weird...i don't do cold well...
  • My friends call me eccentric...

So I tag whomever dares to share their silliness/ weirdness/ eccentricities...

The Feathered Nest said...

Hi Rebecca, well in the South lots of people have a Coke for breakfast instead of coffee (or Mountain Dew)! I need something warm especially now that it's cold. Hope you warm up soon. I don't like being cold either. Congratulations on your award!
