"Marie Antoinette A Real Person, A Real Award"

"Marie Antoinette A Real Person, A Real Award" given to me by Lanny from her quite good, creative and interesting blog, It's the Dirt. Lanny's blog is one of a kind, just like she is. We actually all are, but she perhaps stands out a little more that way. As you'll discover in time from her blog, she loves to write, loves most all of what she does which is alot, on a farm, no less, and loves her husband, Dirt (my guess is that this is reverse order, at least putting the last first, anyhow). They live in beautiful country out in the state of Washington.

Thanks to Lanny for this award. I in turn am to reward it to others. And you are to follow these directions:

1. Please put the logo on your blog
2. Place a link to the person from whom you received the award
3. Nominate at least 7 or more blogs
4. Put the links of those blogs on your blog
5. Leave a message on their blogs to tell them

Now, I'm to nominate some blogs for this award. So here goes:
Charity Singleton - Wide Open Spaces: Charity is going through alot in fighting cancer. She is a writer who in her writing reminds me of myself, probably more than any other blogger. I'm sure I can learn from it in sharing more of my own life, as Charity does hers.
Diane - Emerging Quaker: Diane is a friend from Jesus Creed who at last started her own blog. She is thoughtful in seeking to express her tradition of the faith in ways that would put Christ front and center in this world.
L.L. Barkat - Seedlings in Stone: L.L. besides being an excellent even though budding author, is quite the blogger. You'll find her here and here as well. She is best read slowly and thoughtfully so you can enjoy the beauty along the way. And really it's the beauty of the Lord that comes to the fore.
Nancy: She is creative in creative ways (example: forever changing the title of her blog, and more). She has a big heart for people and for the Lord.
Halfmom, AKA, Susan - Not Ashamed: Susan is a scientist, professor, counselor, and lover of God's word. And she is not ashamed of the gospel. I've come to be impressed with her love for the Lord and for people, and its expression on her blog, as well as her wit and wisdom there.
Jennifer L. Griffith - Gumbo-Ya-Ya -- Everybody talking at once: Jennifer has a great testimony and is to the point about life and the Lord in all of life.
Kim Aliczi - The Threshing Floor: Kim is like me in wanting to challenge the status quo and shake things up a bit. She does so in her own unique way, though that is not only what she's all about, as you'll see on her blog.
Lorenzo - Lorenzo the Llama: Lorenzo has a gift for lovingly sharing her life through her blog, in pics and words oftentimes spiced with humor. And the British kind which is fun. And she gets around.

Visit these places to see what they do, and firsthand why I passed this award on to them. And don't forget Lanny's place.

Ooo Ted, thank you very much. I will have to backtrack some old emails to find out how to do a link. How do I put Marie A. onto my blog?
my email is lorenzothellama@another.com.

Thanks Ted.

Wow, Ted. I'm honored and don't feel worthy of such recognition. Thanks for your timely encouragement.

I'm doing well, just a bit distracted from the blog lately. God is good, and basically sent me for a 3 week visit to see family over 2000 miles away. It was a blessed time, and much needed after a difficult year, but one filled with GROWTH and grace from the one I serve.

Congrats to all. And thanks to Ted, I have more blogs to check out. If his advice follows the usual, it will be well worth the time.

Awwww, Ted - thanks so much! You made my day! But didn't Marie Antoinette lose her head somewhere along the way?

L.L. Barkat said...

Ted, you are kind!

I'm not sure I'll get 'round to this one, but I accept your sentiments and feel honored.

Ted -- Thanks so much! What an honor -- your comments as much as the award. I will pass this along in the next few days. I'm in the throes of Advent writing, so it may take a bit. Mostly, I'm just happy to be back in the habit of daily writing! Thanks for your encouragement to keep at it! Blessings.

Your welcome! Blogger is pretty easy, and though I'm no computer whiz, I'll try to walk you through it.

I may not get to helping you until later today which may be very late there in the UK, but will try to get to it sooner.

Ted M. Gossard said...

Your welcome, Susan.

Ted M. Gossard said...

Your welcome. Glad you had such a good time with family. Yes, those hard times do help one grow. I think the Lord has been doing something of the same with me over the past year.

Ted M. Gossard said...

Yes. In blogging I value the content, but I value the fellowship just as much, if not more. It's good to have both, which you do have with these (and others).

Ted M. Gossard said...

Your welcome.

I think so. My French history is terrible. You know, I didn't come up with this award. I guess it's what you don't know that in the end can kill you. ha.

Ted M. Gossard said...

Your welcome. I added a description about you and your blogging as I realized I hadn't done so. No problem at all, of course.

Ted M. Gossard said...

--I mean if you don't get around to doing it, L.L.

Ted M. Gossard said...

Your welcome.

Good to hear that you're back to daily writing. I'll have to get over there soon, to read it.

Ted M. Gossard said...

Your welcome. Glad you had that big smile on.
