The True Heart Award.

Nobody has ever measured, not even poets, how much the heart can hold. -Zelda Fitzgerald.

"Those who receive this award are of the sweetest nature. They are kind, friendly, funny, loving, eager to share their love for Jesus with others, and brave in their efforts to reflect Him to this darkened world. They are the kind of folks you're blessed to know, even if it's only in the bloggy-sphere."

Hmmmm....not how I'd describe myself but I am really honoured to receive this award because, you know, like my homeschooling, things are eclectic around here ~ a bit of this, a touch of that & something else just for flair. I mean God has put so many interesting & beautiful things in this world that one needs more than one life to sample them all & then he added mysteries just to tease & tantalise & get the old brain cogs whirring round & of course some of us just have to talk about all this, even if no~one is listening but ourselves.

My blog roll is pretty eclectic too. Ever noticed that? Every time I go visiting round I wonder how so many diverse & funny people ended up as bloggy friends with me. Anyway, just so you know, I cherish each & every one of you for your own particular way of being part of my life & if I could make these blooming awards [which I can't] I would have great fun designing individual ones for each & every one of you. However I have to choose & I would like to give this award to three of my quieter readers because even in their quietness & reticence they are impacting those around them in a positive way. More of it I say!

: Heidi, my love, you have been very quiet lately but this is for you.♥

:Mama Olive @ Nothing but Time in the Olive Grove who is the most generous of friends & has a house full of young & tender shoots.

: & last but not least, Jan Lyn @ Off the Beaten Path who with true Quaker simplicity & directness chronicles the ups & downs of her life.

Thank you, ladies, for sharing a little of your lives with me. ☺

Now that is a great award for you :o)

Heidi said...

Awwww... Very sweet of you indeed. I'm still here. We all have our crosses to bear and mine has been tying up my energy lately. Regardless, God is faithful to grant strength to love and serve Him. For that I am very thankful.

Thank you, dear. I'll try to live worthy of it.

Oh, Ganeida you've got me giggling a bit you would choose me. I keep thinking I've got nothing much to say on my blog. You are too sweet! Thankyou so much as you are such an encouragement.

My girls are demanding the park, as this great yellow ball has finally shown itself after all the rain. I hope to do more with my blog soon!

Much love!
Jan Lyn
