giving a shout out...

My dear friend Diane has introduced a new blog award from Women to Women.



She and I would love to start seeing it on hundreds of blogs. Hopefully it will encourage other bloggers to help us exalt the name of Christ as we share our papercrafting passions.

The Exalting Christ blog award is given to bloggers who consistently exalt the name of Christ on their blogs. What a joy to see crafters blend their passion for Christ and papercrafting. This award is given to bloggers who share Christ through their posts or through the design of their artwork. We are commanded in Scripture to be "salt and light" sharing the Good News of Jesus no matter where we are (Matthew 5:13-16). This award is just a way members of Women to Women: Sharing Jesus can say thanks for exalting Christ with us!

Rules:

1. Post the blog award in a regular post on your blog with the explanation, including the original link to WTW and the rules for passing the award along
2. Name five people (more or less is fine!) to whom you want to offer this award and link to their blogs. The blogs need to obviously exalt Christ in some manner.
3. Contact the bloggers you have named to let them know they can pick up their blog award from you.
4. Invite them to permanently display the WTW blog badge and/or the award on their blogs. The badge can be obtained on the WTW site.

I am giving this blog award to:

Jennifer of Just Coffee Please is a wonderful wonderful friend who is just living life to the fullest as she radiates the love of Jesus.

PurpleStamper316 muses on her blog. What a witness to the love of Jesus as she provides thoughts on life, faith, art...

I got to actually meet Diane (momoffive) a few years ago!! She's an amazing woman!! She has been such an example to me of God's love in action as she juggles a very full plate!!

peggysue (Roses by my Window) is another friend that I got to meet IRL (in real life) a few years ago. I love her deep desire to honour God in all that she does - her love for Him is so evident!

Tricia (Simply Stamping) is another dear friend that I 'met' while ago. Tricia is a godly woman who seeks to shine for Him!!

Enjoy their blogs and let their creative works of art be an inspiration for you today!!

I do hope to see tons of these out and around. Feel free to nominate some of your own! I know we have mutual friends that would wear the award well!

I need to get in touch with you soon...will try to email before long. Just touching base and seeing how you're doing. I'm busy with DS#1 who's home for 4 days.

Thanks for posting this. Continuing to pray over you, sister...love you...Diane

Edith, you sweetheart, thank you! I'm going to need some assistance from my more technically (computer) savvy sister in Christ to figure out how to put this on my blog . . .

And your sweet spirit has touched my life in so many way, I would bounce this award right back to you! :)
