Ideal Inspiration Blogger Award 7.11.2020

“But there is a spirit in man:
and the inspiration of the Almighty giveth them understanding.”
– Job 32:8 KJV

Dearest, Lord. How inspiring You are to me! So generous and thoughtful. Always pouring out Your love! Just as You have done in whispering my name to our dearest Anabel of Lebana’s Journal to nominate me for the Ideal Inspiration Blogger Award. How my heart smiles to know it is our sweet Anabel! You have allowed Anabel to be one of my inspirations on WordPress since I began blogging. She has always been so encouraging, so kind, and has such a sweet spirit. I’ve always loved how her bio dares her readers to get to know her. And what touching poetry! And that beautiful picture of her! Thank You, God, for allowing such a sweet fellowship with my precious friend Anabel!

Thank you, dearest Anabel! What a dear friend you are to me, and have been from the beginning of my WordPress journey! Thank you for your kind nomination! And thank you for all of your encouraging messages, and for always sharing your heart for God. Your poetry and your faith has also been a blessing to me. May God bless you as richly!
Me and God love you, my Filipina Sister! ❤ideal-inspiration-blogger-awardRules

And each one who has nominated me for an award that you have not heard back from me on. I have lost so many emails, award nominations, comments, and more lately to where even if I KNOW I had one, I cannot find them. It’s very possible I have accidentally deleted them or just need to find where I put them. For the last year and this one, I have been learning to use my new smartphone and tablet. Unfortunately I have been learning the hard way not to trust them. I apologize and want to make clear how much you are valued! Praise God for your encouragement, your merciful heart, and your thoughtfulness. Me and God love you!

Congratulations to the Nominees. Please do not feel obligated to participate. If you do, no rush. Do in your time, as God gives. And please send me a link. I would love to read your post! Just sharing a little of God’s love your way. Thank you for inspiring me! 🙂
Me and God love you!

PS… Sorry about forgetting the questions. Please feel free to use the same questions Anabel gave me.

    1. PTL! Thank you, Margaret! My cup runneth over! Crowns to lay at His feet. All glory to His Holy name! ♥️
      I thank God for the inspiration you are to me!🌹 Take all the time you need! Me and God love you!


        1. I think we are playing comment tag… ha ha. Sorry I took so long to respond. My brother called to let me know our brother in law cracked 4 ribs and had an infection. My brother in law is a hospice patient who is also a fall risk (which led to his cracked ribs) so he could not be left alone. So while the docs wanted them to stay put, he needed some labs taken to the doctor. It was a full day.
          Thank you for your patience. Anabel’s questions were just fine. 🙂

  3. Thank you dear one for the nomination. Thank you too for the grace of time. It always takes me a bit to get one of these out, but honestly, I so try to do my best and not mess up on all the rules!!! Just know you are my encouragement as always, you love me from afar in a way that I feel I know you personally, even though we have never met in person! But that just shows how GOD brings people together who love HIM, even if we live in other states. So hugs and love to you dear one across the miles and I am honored you thought of me for this award!!

    1. PTL! So glad He allowed me to share, Maxine! When He whispers, I hope to always obey.
      It can take me a good bit of time too. Don’t worry about the rules. Do God leads you! 🙂
      I thank God for our friendship. God is so kind to teach us to love one another as He loves us! So unconditionally! 🙂 Sisters in Christ for life! We will get together with our Father… soon and very soon (I love that song). Hugs to you too! Me and God love you!

  6. Congratulations on another well-deserved award, Gail. I’ll check out Anabel’s blog in a moment, too.
    I’d like to go to Australia one day too. I’m not sure that it would ever happen but it looks beautiful there and I have family in Oz that I’ve never seen. The Philippines would be a good one to explore too. If ever you come to the UK you’ll have to visit me!! Or I could just meet you in Australia, they have better weather than we do 😉 xxxx

    1. PTL! Thank you, Caz! To God be all the glory! 🙂
      Anabel is such a kind and loving spirit, and writes beautiful poetry!
      I never even desired to go anywhere until God blessed me with my WordPress Family, and our Lovely Anita would always tag me with these kind of questions. The UK was to see you too!! 🙂
      Wouldn’t that be something to say you went to Oz (like in The Wizard of Oz 😉 )?
      Our dearest Anabel is in the Philippines. I’ll come get you first, and we’ll travel together! ❤
      Even if it's just a dream, it's an awesome one!
      Me and God love you!! ❤
