Tagged and Honoured

New Year's day came with a flurry of snow as we were visiting the Bennetts in Farmland, IN. I came down with a bout (and still lingering) of stomach something. Shane said my bowels weren't used to champagne (mimosas) for breakfast!

Viola, at Naming His Grace, has tagged we with a blessing .
The idea… it’s a game of tag with a difference, rather than looking inwardly, we look outside ourselves and bless, praise and pray for one blog friend. By participating in this endeavour we not only make the recipient of the blessing feel valued and appreciated, but we are having some fun too. We’re going to see how far the bloggin’ blessings can travel around the world and how many people can be blessed!
I feel totally unworthy, but isn't that the nature of grace and blessings? So I embrace the blessing and pass it on to:

Heidi, at Mt. Hope Chronicles. I have been so blessed and challenged by the wisdom, beauty, simplicity and joy at her site. She home-schools, photographs life in rural Oregon, shares her books, recipes, home designs and family life.

Courtney at Orranges. Courtney is a spitfire. She has energy to burn, to share and them there's still some leftover. She dreams of a world free of exploitation and she and her husband BreNt are setting their lives up to do something about it. She's a thinker and a doer and I love her.

Lastly, I tag my husband (and I do a little more than that too!). He's a gifted writer and teacher and I have continually been blessed by the wisdom and passion in his sermons and blog entries. He preaches almost every Sunday and I wish he would blog more often!

I'm going to add a fourth, simply because it's my blog and I can't leave off this site. Twoedgetalk has blessed me weekly with their podcasts. Cyndi and Deacon Tim are fun, insightful and wise.
