Neno's Award

Recently, I was awarded the Neno's award by Silver @ Reflections and yesterday, I was awarded the Neno's award again by Christy Rose @ The Secret Life of an American Wife and Mom. Each of these two ladies are very special. They are encouragers and write from the depths of their hearts. Thank you, Silver and Christy Rose.

I am in awe and amazed by the love and encouragement shared in the blogging world. I thank each of you for your prayers, support, and gentleness. You share openly and honestly with all of us.

Neno's award is given to those who love blogging, love to encourage friendships through blogging, and who help others seek the reasons why we all love blogging. I have met so many wonderful people through blogging and I am so excited to pass this along. I want to pass it on to:

Thank you for asking me to stop by and pick up this award. I appreciate it. I particularly like your signoff "In HIS grip." In one of our last conversations, I said to my best friend (who died a couple weeks ago) "Hold onto the Master's hand." He said, "No,no. He holds my hand. I might let go, but He never will."
