Circle Of Friends



















Deborah passed this award to her readers. What a blessing! I hope each of you will check out her blog.

I am suppose to tell 5 things I love to do:

1) Walk on the beach!
2) Hike in the mountains!
3) Write and read!
4) Follow my furry kids on adventures of Dog Therapy. I am merely the human at the end of the leash!
5) Crash into my Heavenly Father's arms and rest!

I am passing this award to each of you, because indeed you have become a Great Circle Of Friends!

"A friend loves at all times." Proverbs 17:17


Blessed to be a friend,

Andrea

Alleluiabelle said...

Dearest Andrea,

I could not of said it any better than Mary did above. I ditto her entire comment. The Circle Of Friends Award is beautiful in what it represents to all of us who have come to know and love each other through the blogging world. We have laughed, cried, typed out our inner most deep emotions and are spreading the Good News of who He really is together...and it's all because of Him that we have gotten to know each other. Yes, it is always about Him. It is an honor to accept this from you in Jesus precious name and all for His honor and glory do I accept it to place on my site.

I love you precious sister, friend, prayer warrior and so much more. You always inspire, encourage, fill me up and lift me up in so many ways...I deeply thank you for that with all of my heart.

God bless you and your family many times over as you continue to spread His Word and who you are through Him to the entire world.

Love you so much Andrea,
Alleluiabelle

Lynnette Kraft said...

Well, I also want to thank you for the award. I am blessed to have made such great blogging chums. I would love to do walk on the beach and in the mountains (especially the beach!). I'm in the flat lands of Kansas - so neither is possible on a daily basis. ha! I do love to walk down the dirt road though. I love the private love of living in the country.

Have a beautiful and peaceful Sunday.
Your Chum,
Lynnette
