An Awesomely Cool Award
My friend Xandra at Heart of Service sent this great award my way she created! Xandra participated in the I AM Study and there isn’t a more precious girl around.
So here’s to all the blogs that you’ve discovered that you can’t possibly live without. They make you laugh, cry, think and feel connected every time you read a post. They give you a thrill as you see them loading into your browser and you get an equally satisfying thrill when you see that they have commented on your blog.
Okay, so I am supposed to name five of my daily reads. Thing is, I’m a terribly daily reader but here is a sampling of the ones I get to as often as humanly possible.
Kelli @ Love Well – I heart Kelli. We are on baby watch since she’s due anytime now. Kelli makes me laugh and her husband interjecting in her comments when she has insulted his beautiful wife absolutely makes me crazy about them as a couple.
Vicki Courtney – Vicki was gracious enough to me a few months back to send a box of goodies for you girls when I told her I was reviewing a book of hers. I love to read her blog to find out what she’s writing and her take on events in pop culture that affect our kids. Even cooler than that, she even comes here sometimes and THAT makes my day. Because she’s famous and stuff. And I’m so – NOT. lol (Messing with you Vickie!) Anyway, she agreed to be my blog bff and that would be one of the highlights of my 2007.
CWO Internet Cafe Team Blog – Many of the girls I read daily are also a part of my blogging family at the Internet Cafe. I encourage you to go there daily for your devotions and to visit each of the girls’ personal blogs while you are at it. You’ll never be disappointed.
All my church girls – Deb, Brooke,Deedra, Cheryl, Jenny, and Melissa
We have a bit of a blogging epidemic in my church – one that thrills me to no end. I love these girls with all my heart and each of them bless me in their own unique way.
Michelle is one of the coolest girls I don’t know. She makes me laugh my head off, gives great recommendations on anything from toys to books, has mad knitting skillz, cooks like a madwoman, and lives in Alaska. She’s like Martha Stewart on steroids and I love visiting her. (I was going to say ‘on crack’ but didn’t know if she’d appreciate that reference…Steroids is so much more flattering..:) I love it even more that she always responds to my comments. No matter how weird they are..:)
Lisa Writes – My sister from another mother. Her New Year post was breath-taking.
Okay, so Beth isn’t going to post this on her blog but I desperately love all the Siestas and can not WAIT to see them in San Antonio in August! I often visit the other girls who have commented on posts there and am proud to feel like one of them! This includes Amanda, Patty, Kim, Shelly, Leigh, Jenny, Lindsee, Ang, Janelle and so many more I know I’m forgetting right now.
Okay, so that’s five plus! If you are on this list and want to pass this award on, choose five of your own favorite reads and post them to your blog for us to read. Don’t forget to let me know when you’ve posted!
I also want to encourage you to go see my friend Linda who has just dove in to the blogging world. Her blog is Mocha with Linda. She’d appreciate your encouraging comments on her debut posts!
Thanks again, Xandra for this fun award…You’ve been a great daily dose for me today!
Thank you Lisa!! I feel the same way about you. I love visiting you and I can’t wait to see what you have posted each day. I mean you are such a beautiful siesta inside and out and one of the most talented writers and teachers of God’s Word hands down. Thank you so much for giving me this award!!
Love you to pieces,
Lisa, I can’t think of a more deserving awardee than you. Thanks for visiting me around Christmas. I’ve missed you since I took a blogging break this fall and finished I Am. You are such a treat, and I’ll be back to visit.
What a cool award! You are rockin’ the blog world, sister! I can’t wait for August.
Well thank you SO much! Here I am wandering through the blogosphere and find this!
You’ve made my day :)
hey Lisa! I sure do love your authenticity and heart for our Jesus! Happy New Year! love jenny
I was so excited trying to get to your place to see what you had for me! Thanks so much for the award. I really enjoy reading your blogs! You are an awesome writer. Wish I could go with you in August. I know you will have such an exciting trip. You will need to keep a journal and tell us EVERYTHING when you return. Thanks again! Love You!
Ok, Lisa…my goal is to make your list this year. I am taking my blogging to the next level in 2008! You are my blog hero! Stop by and check out my new blog soon. Congrats on the award. You deserve it!
Congrats on your award! You deserve it!
An absolutely well-deserved award. You absolutely set the blog bar. You have no idea the impact you are making.
And what a cool surprise to see my new little blog mentioned! Thanks!
Thank you so much for the award! You are precious and one of my favorite people in the world!! Love you!!!
Oh, Lisa! You absolutely just thrilled my heart to little pieces and made my absolute day!! What a fun award. I’m not very good at putting up the awards I have recieved on my blog, but I will try harder in 2008!
Much love to you today!
P.S. I CANNOT wait for San Antonio either. I can’t even imagine the joy that will go on in that TBA place!!! :)
So nice to meet you Lisa! Thanks so much for stopping by my brand new little blog and leaving such sweet words for me! You have a such a beautiful heart and I am anxious to dive into your blog and read all about you, your heart for God and everything else!
I’ll be back later tonight, as we are out the door running errands right now. We had a death in our family over the New year holiday (My daddy’s brother passed on to spend his New Year with Jesus! We are having his funeral tonight and graveside services tomorrow.
So, although things are a bit busy at the moment, I’ll be returning to your wonderful blog to get to know you better and count you among my blessings, friend!
On a funny note…. Guess what……that sofa is in MY living room! haha! We MUST have good taste, huh??? And yes…. Mamaw is beginning to read the blogs I love to visit as well. She doesn’t have a blog of her own yet…..but … Mom is our “Ebay Queen” as Chelsi calls her! She loves to dibble dabble on ebay!
I am adding you to my list of “Special People and Places” on my blog, if that is ok! Have a wonderful day….
Congratulations! I love to stop by and read what you have to write…wish I had the time and ability to read daily, but alas…I’m a scatterbrain, so I visit in a scatter-brained way :)
I will be in San Antonio, too! Also, my friend Joanne (the Simple Wife) and Kate (Kathryn Stoker) will be flying in from Colorado with me. Bev (Beverly Brandon) is coming, too, I think!
I really look forward to meeting you, Lisa!
much love in Him,
Honored. Humbled. Thrilled. Touched.
(“Probably in the head,” my husband would add if he were commenting over my shoulder.)
You are just one of my favorite bloggers, Lisa. Thanks for the award.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to have to figure out what I can do to wipe this smile off my face, or I’ll never be able to drink my coffee without dribbling.
What a wonderful award and I am sure everyone you blessed is deserving. Happy New Year and God Bless You!
Congratulations! Definately an award given to the right lady! I love stopping by to see what’s new! If you have time (what is that??), I have some exciting news up on my blog!
Congrats chickie and thanks too!!!!!! I got to get some shut eye so that I can meet Him in the am!!!! love ya adn see you soon – well 8 months!!!
Thanks so much! You are most certainly an “award winning” blogger! Even though I don’t always manage to comment, I always love to see what you’ve got to say! Always uplifting, encouraging and a great addition to my day! I’m also glad I get to see your smiling face (even when you’re not smiling..which is rare!) in person on a tri weekly basis!
Thanks for the award! I wish that I could think of something to write everyday for your to read though!!!
Love you bunches!
A great list of blogs to be sure. Congratulations on your award.
congrats, Lisa! You certainly deserve it!
You are a blessing to many Lisa!
You Rock! I can relate to you alot as I am a minister’s wife myself.
You are just precious!! I love to come by and read your blog. You are a great writer and just make me laugh. I learn so much and relate to you in so many ways. I look forward to seeing you in 9 months and giving you another big HUG!!
We read in our one year bible in OT about soothing aromas to our beautiful God and you sure are one…II Cor 2:14—you have been the fragrance of Jesus to many, especially me in relating to you as a minister’s wife…thank you from the bottom of my heart
So cool…you totally deserve it!
What’s this about a BlogHer conference??? (you have my ears up, perked, ready, and sooo excited…)
Melissa in Mel’s World
Oh my goodness, Lisa! Thank you SO much for including me!!! Your heart for God is so contagious and I love your authenticity! I cannot wait for August to meet you! Your blog blesses me more than you will ever know!
I am so so so excited!
Lisa, thank you SO MUCH for this award and your sweet words!! I’m so sorry I am just now commenting about this. It really means so much to me.
I absolutely feel the same way about your blog. It makes me so happy when I see that you have a new post. You are an amazing woman and I can’t wait until we get to meet. Love ya!
Oh goodness, where have I been that I missed this? Skiing–that’s right!
Well lady, your kind words just made my day and you are in fact, my blog bff. Shall we have shirts made? What do bff’s do nowadays? Matching friendship bracelets, maybe?
You deserve the award you blogging pioneer, you! I was late to the game, but glad I’ve crossed paths with you and many of your fine blog-a-mama’s. Wait, I like that word, so don’t take it!
Anyway, I am thinking mighty seriously about going to that San Antone conference in August seeing as though 2008 is supposed to be a “year of rest” for me. Hah! Anyway, it would be a treat to go to an event as an attendee for a change! If I go, will you save me a seat?
I just finally posted about this award! Thank you so much!!!!
Much love on this beautiful Sunday!
