I've Been Given an Award !!!

I have been given a coveted blogger award by Spookie. It comes all the way from South Africa to Australia!!! The amazing Award is " The Thinking Blogger Award." Spookie chose me because of my passion for worshipping Jesus. A passion that she shares.... Spookie is an amazing writer whose very creative blog I love reading.
So Spookie we're going to see Matt Redman together? Now that something to look forward to . The big decision is -my country or yours:)

It is now my priviledge to nominate five bloggers who I think deserve the Award. These bloggers are listed in no particular order......

Lisa - from Zephaniah 3:17 . Lisa has just completed the most amazing 40 Day Lenten prayer journey. It is based on Isaiah 58 :6-7 and was written in obedience to God calling Lisa to fast by praying and humbling herself . God has gifted Lisa with the most amazing ability as a writer and in this journey she uses that gift for Him. I commend Lisa's Prayer journey to you.

Kimmer - from Kimmer0518 . Kimmer 's blog contains many Bible studies which she has written from sermons given at her church. She has also posted meditaions by other Christian writeres. Kimmer has been blessed over the past year because many Christian musicians have been in her neighbourhood and she has attended their concert. She has posted pictures and some youtube videos from the concerts. Go and have a read and a look at Kimmer's posts and pics!!

Carolanne - from C outside the Box .Carolanne is a "near neighbour" of mine although we have never met. She is an amazingly prolific writer and writes daily a great diary. Check out her other blog about things to be grateful for.

BunnyGirl - from Razors Edge of Insanity .When it comes to writing great poems Bunnygirl is up there with the best!!! Not only that, she is also an artist who can illustrate any poem. Now that is talent !! She also lives on a small island called Guernsey near the coast of France. I have great memories of visiting Guernsey with my mum and dad when Iwas young. Maybe that's another reason I chose Bunnygirl :)

Sunny - from FreeFall . Sunny was the blog administrator for a long time of a blog that several girls get onto daily and share Bible studies, pray for each other and talk about our favourite music or whatever is happening in our lives. We are still blogging together but Kimmer is now the administrator. Sunny did a great job posting devotions for us to read and managing the blog . Sunny is a singer /songwriter . If you check her blog under"view my complete profile "you will get a link to some of Sunny's singing. She has blessed me so very much, especially with the song "Prized by Majesty" that she sent me the CD of. Keep singing Sunny.

He Chose the Nails. By Max Lucado.

Would you like anyone to see the list of your weakneses? Would you like them made public. How would you feel if they were posted high so that everyone, including Christ himself could see ? May I take you to the moment it was? Yes, there is a list of your failures.Christ has chronicled your shortcomings. And,yes,that list has been made public. But you've never seen it and neither have I. Come with me to the hill called Calvary and I'll show you why. God has penned a list of our faults. The list God has made cannot be read. The words can't be deciphered.The mistakes are covered.The sins are hidden. Those at the top are hidden by his hand; those down the list are covered by His blood. Your sins are covered by Jesus. This is why he refused to close his fist. He saw the list!!! What kept him from resisting (the mallet and nails)? This warrant, this tabulation of your failures. He knew the price of those sins was death. He knew the source of these sins was you, and since He couldn't bear the thought of eternity without you, He chose the nails.
