My sweet friend has blessed me by giving me a "Lovely Blog Award!"...I am honored to receive this, my first award. We are both adopting from ROG, although she is also adopting from another country and has just gotten her court date for the 2nd adoption they've started! God is so awesome! http://ridinthewavewithulord.blogspot.com
So here are the two rules to accepting the award...
1) Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award and his or her blog link.
2) Pass the award to 15 other blogs.
Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.So, sweet friends, here goes...
The blessing is all mine to give away--so here are some blogs that I think are just absolutely lovely...
(I received this a few days ago but haven't taken time to copy and paste, my apologies.)
http://cornishadoptionjourney.blogspot.com/ I started following their blog while Merideth was stuck in Ukraine doing a double adoption. What a blessing to see this family following God's leading and seeing His provision as they do.
http://smilesandtrials.blogspot.com/ I'm in awe of this ever growing family! They have opened their hearts and home again and are about to travel to add again. It's a pleasure to see how they can keep things going and deal so well with issues that arise as their children grow up.
http://smilesandtrials.blogspot.com/ Martha took Hannah her first presents from us almost a year and a half ago. They are a family of courage- they've faced amazing obstacles and have overcome!
http://sixsunflowerseeds.blogspot.com/ The reason I like this blog is because Tami is so honest, so much like me in many ways. Their family is made up of 4 adopted children and the honesty of her posts make me laugh and nod my head; I'd say that, too!
http://chroniclesofhousehold6.blogspot.com/ This family has dedicated their lives serving our country. I'm thankful. They also have adopted 2 sweet boys and are on their way back for more! Their love for the Lord and willingness to obey earn my respect.
http://urbanfunnyfarm.blogspot.com/ I'm so thankful for my wonderful friend of the past 20 years! We have shared so many of my significant moments together. Because of her, my life has been changed several times. Thanks, friend!
http://eccentric-chef.blogspot.com/ How Mary found my blog, I'm not sure. She did and has not only contributed financially, but sent us music from Hannah's country and a cd-rom to help us learn her language. She is an amazing cook, her knowledge of food is so beyond me and inspires me. I'm grateful!
http://thebankscottage.blogspot.com/ I've know Jennifer for many years, been out of touch for most of them. Reading her blog, I hear her voice and experience her appreciation of all God has made and her love for Him.
http://fromthetrenchesofadoption.blogspot.com/ At one time, this family prayed about adopting Hannah. Instead, we get to. They have triplets, have adopted 2 special boys who are flourishing in their family's love, and are in the process of going back for more!
http://wespeakspanglish.blogspot.com/ This is another family I know, living just across town, but rarely see. This is a great way to watch their sweet family's experiences. Her kids say and do such sweet things!
http://kelsiescrazyworld.blogspot.com/ Kelsie is a friend's daughter. I knew her before she was! She's smart, funny and a creative baker/cook. You'll like her life.
http://oneroofafrica.blogspot.com/ This family, I met the mom once, the kids twice, have moved to Africa to foster a son they've loved for several years. It's actually the dad who blogs. You'll enjoy the great photography and witty writing style. May we all have that perseverance to obey God's leading as they do.
http://donohuedailies.blogspot.com/ This is someone I went to nursing school with and have been out of touch with for years. Now, I get to follow their lives and enjoy their adventures.
I know that I'm supposed to list 15, but I've had to cut down since I was becoming addicted to Google Reader and checked too many times a day and wasn't doing what I needed to do! Thanks for sharing your journeys with me, I'm blessed as I watch God moving in your families.
