Blogging With A Purpose!

My sweet cyberspace friend Karen over at Surviving Motherhood has once again gifted me with an award. Karen spends her life honoring the Lord and allowing Him to teach her and she shares that wisdom with us! There have been many times that I have simply felt like throwing in the towel and I'd pop over to Karen's to find she was experiencing similar struggles. She shares her experiences...the good, the bad, the ugly....she doesn't sugar coat life. I love this about her...that she isn't afraid of what anyone might think, she isn't afraid of the flaws. She looks to the Father in all things and then she shares those VICTORIES with us giving us hope and encouragement all while glorifying the Lord. That's purpose!

For Karen to pass this award along to me.....well.....it just touches my soul. It is my hearts desire to glorify my Lord, my King Jesus in all that I say and all that I do and in doing so I too want to help edify-lift up- encourage others. I want to be a light in the darkness, truth for those blinded by the lie, hope for those in despair and even a laugh for the saddened here and there. All while showing my Abba Daddy is my strength, He is my hope, He is the truth and the only way to real life-eternal life. I want people to see Christ in me.

I fall, I fail, I struggle, I'm up, I'm down, I'm many things but Jesus..He is my steady, He is my calm, He is my peace. And all of this is why this award means so much to me. Thank-you Karen!

The rules for this award are as follows:
1. Awarded parties must nominate five people who have not received the award.
2. The blogs that receive the award must serve some purpose.
