Thinking Blogger Award

This was awarded to me by my good friend Trella at Word of Truth Christian Academy. I've only just begun blogging, so I was very touched that she nominated me. Her blog was one of two that I read daily, and I enjoyed it so much, I decided to give it a try.

So now, in turn, I will award 5 others for this award. It comes from The Thinking Blogger, so if I gave this award to you and you'd like to participate, go check out that blog for the rules on participating.

1. My friend George's blog "The Secret Place of Elyon" I've been checking out his blog for a long time. He has been battling cancer, and his blog has been such a testimony of his love to God and God's love to Him.

2. My friend Tonja's blog "Raising Eagles" She is a friend from college and has always had a deep love for the Lord and great wisdom and insight.

3. My friend Nancy's blog "Are We Having Fun Yet?" Nancy and I are friends who have "never met". We met in the "heart world" online. Both of us have a child with a major congenital heart defect. Her child, Jessica, has a terminal condition. Nancy is so much fun and positive through it all, and I have very much enjoyed her blog.

4. I also wanted to award Ash's blog "Life is a Fairy Tale Written by God's Fingers". She has been so encouraging to me since I've started, and I've enjoyed her blog immensely.

5. And I must award this back to Trella, even though she gave it to me. I wouldn't be blogging if it weren't for enjoying her blog so much. She also introduced me to all of her blogging friends, who I have really enjoyed.

I've met a whole bunch of new friends through this blog, and I really enjoy each blog. They are all unique and have great humor and godly wisdom. Please visit each one of the blogs I've listed in my "Blogs I visit daily". Each one of them deserve all the awards around. It IS hard to pick when all are so deserving and you don't want to leave anybody out or hurt anybody's feelings. So, thanks to are ALL awesome!!

You certainly deserve the "Thinking Blogger Award"! CONGRATULATIONS :o)
I love reading your insights!

Ashley said...

Aww, well thank you so much Ruth, I really do appreciate it. I am not nominating people though, because I cannot choose just 5 people. I LOVE everyones blogs that I read. And they all help me in so many ways. Whether it's to laugh, or to encourage, or to touch my heart just when I need it. I thank you again so much. You are such a sweet lady, and I love your blog.

Trella said...

I am so glad you posted George's blog because I keep losing the address.

Trella said...

When is your anniversary and when is Beth's birthday? I believe that one of them is today, and one was either yesterday or tomorrow. See, I can't remember dates, but I think I am close. So Happy ____ to one of y'all.

Ruth said...

LOL! You're close. Our anniversary is tomorrow, the 11th, and Beth's birthday is Friday, the 13th. Thanks for remembering!

oh, and btw, tell Josh that Dave is putting in a request to order Josh' book for the library. They buy 2 copies of all Louisiana authors. Just thought y'all would like to know :)
have a wonderful week without homework :)

Tonja, I excited and appreciative that Dave is ordering copies of Josh's book for the library. I hope he has time to read it...and you to. It is self-published, and you can tell somewhat because there are typos. Three of us read over that manuscript multiple times....and we're all good at editing...and we STILL missed a bunch. Anyway, you don't have to just be into sci-fi to like it. Thanks again!
