Another award! I truly am shocked, but thrilled to be nominated for this “happy” award. I do pray that this blog will be a light in the darkness and lead everyone who stops by to seek Jesus! He’s the true “SONshine”!!!
I want to thank healthyliving4him.wordpress.com for nominating our blog for this award. I love her blog and just discovered it through the Liebester award and I’m glad I did. So, friends, look at these blogs we have listed and you will find some great people with great blogs out there just waiting for you to find them!
Basically, The Sunshine Award recognizes bloggers whose writings “light up the dark corners of our minds”.
Here are the RULES:
(1) Thank the person who gave you the award in your blog post.
(2) Do the Q&A below.
(3) Pass on the award to 10 – 12 deserving and inspiring bloggers, inform them and link to their blogs.
My answers are as follow…
Favorite color? I’ve always thought it was blue, but I love purple too…but not just blue or purple, it has to be that perfect shade that makes me smile.
Favorite animal? This is a very hard question and I may even get some “hate mail” from this, but I don’t like animals. It’s really crazy, but when I was a teenager I loved animals and wanted to live on a farm with every kind of animal there was. I don’t know what happened to that teenager, but she’s not me anymore. We’ve had our share of cats, dogs, fish, and even a pet squirrel (yep, my husband found him fallen from his nest and we assumed his mom was dead, because we had seen a dead squirrel a few days earlier-compliments of our cat!) And he put him in a cage and feed him puppy formula through a dropper and played with that little creature and they became the best of friends. After a month and a half, he let him go in our yard and “Earl the Squirrel” went straight back to his previous nest. He then started making his own nest every few months in different trees in our yard (we have a mainly wooded 2 acre lot) and he would usually come when called or come when you walked outside. My hubby would sit down and play with him, scratch him, feed him sunflower seeds and pecans. It was really amazing! But he disappeared after about a year and a half. We think something happened to him, because Earl had it too good to leave on his own. A dog killed our cat and then I told my husband that when I died he could have all the animals he wants. But for now, he’ll just have to be satisfied with “dog-sitting” our two grandson’s little dog, Lucy!
Favorite number? I have never thought about it, so I have no idea!
Favorite nonalcoholic drink? Sweet tea! But I drink it seldom now, opting for water or plain un-sweet tea…I haven’t lost ONE POUND by doing this. So don’t believe it when you read those articles that tell you if you cut out “such and such” you can lose so many pounds in a year! Baloney!
Favorite alcoholic drink? I don’t drink.
Facebook or Twitter? I guess if I have to pick, I know a little more about FaceBook and use it more. I’m still trying to figure out Twitter. I can read the tweets on my account and have even re-tweeted (which I think is a huge accomplishment) but I have only actually posted a handful on my very own. I still don’t understand it all.
My Passions? I do love Jesus, and I want Him to be my true passion, but I must confess that I’m still working on it. I feel like Peter when Jesus asked him 3 times if he loved Him. Oh Lord, keep asking and I pray that each time I will love you more and more! My earthly passions are my family, my friends, my church, our Media Center and reading!!! Of course, I have some TV shows that I really like too! But here again, they don’t need to be my passion, it’s ok to like them, but my main passion needs to be Jesus!
Giving or Receiving Gifts? I love to give and make people happy. And giving doesn’t always involve money, you can give of yourself in so many ways…just being with a friend who has had a bad day and making her laugh her head off and forget about her troubles…that’s a great gift I love to give! That’s the kind of gift I like to receive too!
And since I have an annoying gnat flying around me and my computer, I decided to make up my own question and answer it and ask it of you.
What insect to your really hate? Gnats!!!!
Now it’s my turn to nominate blogs who encourage me and make me smile! I know some of them don’t like accepting awards, and if you don’t it won’t hurt my feelings and some of you may have already won this award – I just want to nominate you to let you know that I love reading your blogs and you make me happy and smile!
Bloggers, if you accept let me know so I can visit your blog and read the answers to these questions and get to know you better!
P.S. I just want you to know that I burned my cornbread while doing this blog post! So smile, because last night we ate at Cracker Barrel and my husband complained that the cornbread muffins were a little bit too done…just wait until he sees what I have for him tonight!! 🙂
