Queen Of All Things

Yesterday, I dropped by one of my favorite bloggers site to find my daily dose of encouragement. I found far more than encouragement. Rosel, at Off The Beaten Trek gave me an "Aw-summ!!!" award, called "Queen Of All Things."

Honestly, I do not feel "aw-summ" nor do I feel I am "queen of all things." I have not felt well for sometime and yesterday was no different. Last night, I found myself miserable and awake. As I laid quietly beside my husband I began to ponder this award and how it fit into my life.

GOD spoke clearly through my physical pain: "Though you do not feel worthy of this award or capable.......I AM."

I was reminded of the "Aw-summness" of GOD and HIS power to use the words on my blog for HIS good will and purpose. In HIM, I can be queen and in HIM, I can do "aw-summ" things.

The rules for this award:

~List 7 things that make you awesome.

~Pass along to 7 bloggers you love.

~Link back to the queen who tagged you.

1)I love the Lord with all my heart!

2)I have a wonderful husband, who encourages me to write. He supports my efforts and wants only what is best for me.

3)My children (Biological and Adopted: Robin, Lauren, Seth, Chase, Wil) are the jewels in my crown.

4)Being a grandmother allows me the privilege of a "re-do" and I see more clearly what is important and what is not in raising or helping to raise a child. I cherish our little Savannah. GOD again in HIS wisdom and awesomeness has given me the strength to build a foundation of love and faith with our grandbaby.

5)My furry children keep me humble. Using them for dog therapy keeps me grounded. I am able to see GOD in a way I had never seen before.

6)My writing is a vehicle GOD uses to encourage others. I am still amazed when I receive comments of how a simple article spoke to someone. Truly, this is the "Awesomeness of GOD" through my pen.

7)I seek to be an awesome friend.

In each of these 7 areas I fall short, but through my Heavenly Father I seek "HIS" awesomeness!

I find it very difficult to pass this award to only 7 bloggers. Last night, I prayed God would help me choose the 7 who HE would choose. Congratulations to each of you. You are "aw-summ!!!"

1) Mary at Godly Graffiti. Mary encourages writers and pours out her vast knowledge to all who visit her blog.

2)Laurie at Super Natural Living. Laurie has a heart to reach the world for Christ and always encourages each of us who visit in our daily walk with the Lord.

3)Sheryl at We Are Never Alone. Sheryl reminds us we can live amidst the challenges of this world and face them boldly with confidence knowing our Heavenly Father will never abandon us.
4)Just Be Real. Just Be Real speaks from her heart. I began following her recently and have been touched by her honesty and sincerity.

5)Mid at Mid's Point. Mid stands boldly for the LORD. I am amazed as I read her posts. She exhibits strength as she proclaims GOD's message.

6)Patti at Attic Clutter. Patti always finds the cutest treasures to brighten my day.

7)Beautiful Self. Beautiful Self shares her faith and welcomes differing opinions and comments. She challenges each of us as we read her posts.

Blessings and prayers,
