A Surprise and a Thank You...

I was surprised last week
when I was told that I had been nominated
for the 2007 Homeschool Blog Awards...

As I scrolled through the lists,
I discovered that I had been nominated
in two different categories...
The "Best Homeschool Mom Blog"
and the
"Best “Live What You Believe” Homeschool Blog".

Though the purpose of my blog
is not to seek man's praise,
it was an encouragement and blessing to me
to know that some (at least three)
find encouragement and, hopefully, a blessing here.
Thank you to those that nominated me.
I pray the Lord Jesus Christ
is honored and glorified here, always.
"...that in all things he might have the preeminence."
~ Colossians 1:18

Also, while scrolling, I noticed that Ally
had been nominated for the "Best Teen Gal Blog".
It blessed my heart to see that there are
young girls (and, perhaps, adults) that
find a blessing and encouragement visiting her.
It is our prayer that the Lord will use her
and that He will be honored and glorified
as she stands for Christ in her youth.
"Let no man despise thy youth;
but be thou an example of the believers,
in word, in conversation, in charity,
in spirit, in faith, in purity." ~ 1 Timothy 4:12



Thank you, again, to those that nominated.
I thought this would, also, be a good opportunity
to say thank you to all of you.
I try to, often, mention it in return comments
and return emails
but I am compelled to say thank you,
to all of you that have offered your prayers
and your words of kindness and encouragement.
The Lord uses them and they are such a blessing!
Thank you so much!

"Pleasant words are as an honeycomb,
sweet to the soul, and health to the bones."
~ Proverbs 16:24
