Blogging With a Purpose

My friend Leslie at Do You Weary Like I Do?, gave me this really great award, which originated here. I am so blessed to be a part of this blogging community, and I have received much needed encouragement from so many of you. (And I am in serious need of building up and encouragement after my dismal typing performance!)

There are some blogs that I visit because I am sure to get a good laugh every time. There are some I read because I have apparently found several blogging soul-twins, and it's a bit like reading about my own life. But there are some that I go to because I know that I will be encouraged and sometimes convicted. These blogs are honest and open, and the authors are obedient to God in that they edify and teach the truths of the scripture in a way that makes me want to put on the new man daily.

So, according to the rules, I am passing this award on to Heather, Sue, Linda, Kelly, and Rhonda. This is, of course, not a complete list, but I am a total rule follower and I.must.comply.

Here are the rules for passing this award along....
1. Awarded parties must nominate five people who have not received the award.

2. The blogs that receive the award must serve some purpose.

3. In their post about the award they need to link back to this entry.

4. Awarded parties must post the award banner on their site. The banner must remain linked to the above linked site.

It's been fun getting to 'know' you.

Thank you for the kind nod. I so desire to live with purpose, so this was such encouragement to me. I will enjoy passing it along!
