A Friendship Award

“As Iron sharpens Iron, so one man sharpens another.”Proverbs 27:17

I’d like to thank E-Mom for the honor of sharing in a very special Friendship Award that I received this weekend. I cannot begin to thank the many women of excellence who have inspired and challenged me in my daily walk with Jesus since becoming a part of awesome group of women.

I’d now like to pass this honor on to a few of the women who have really made a powerful impact in my life here in blogland. There is no order to this list, and trust me, it could be much longer then I’ll be able to make it on this post.

1. There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t visit to see what’s up at E-mom’s blog - Chrysalis, so here’s the award, right back to YOU!

2. Tiffany, I just love stopping by your blog at Tea With Tiffany. I’m so excited to know about all that God is doing in your life.

3. Kelly at Aroma of Joy has been such a blessing to me. I have really enjoyed getting to know you and your awesome family.

4. Then there is Lelia’s site at Write From the Heart. Lelia that is exactly what you do! I’m always so touched and encouraged by your posts.

5. Mumblings of A Mommy Monk. Heather, you have become someone I greatly admire. Your writings not only inspire, but also really challenge me to keep going higher and reaching for more. Thanks for using your gift so wisely and effectively.

6. I will take it Lord, All You have to Give. Lori, you are such a source of JOY for me. I love your witty personality. You are someone I’d love to hang out with!

7. Finally, I want to send out my appreciation to Kim at Season’s of My Heart. Your love, boldness, honesty, and passion for Jesus are really contagious.

Oh, this was so very hard. There are so many other wonderful women and sites out there, which are letting their voices be heard loud and clear for Jesus.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and allowing me to share some of my favorite sites with you. I hope you will be as blessed I am by these wonderful women of faith.

Kelley at Aroma of Joy said...

Oh my goodness, this day just keeps getting better and better! Did you know that I am planning to fly to the She Speaks conference with Lelia? How cool that you had both of us recieving this gift! You are such a special friend and I learn something new every time I come to visit you. I know I have told you this before, but I am always encourged by your posts! I look forward to staying in touch and who knows, maybe someday we will actually get to meet one another in person (like a big blog reunion or something!).

Have a Happy St. Patty's Day!
Love, Kelley

Well dear, ditto back to you. Thank you for including me in your friends. I'm touched deeply.

YOU inspire me with what I see God doing in your heart. I hope we continue to keep in contact as you grow in the Lord.

As iron sharpens iron...

You matter to me.
