I can't believe it!
I have been chosen by Kim at Hiraeth for the "Thinking Blogger Award!"
(I am going to have to soak in the tub tonight for doing a jiggity-jig at Kim's blog for a pulled muscle!) I guess I will have to get my soaking salts out.
Well! Here we go ... my choices are -- (drum roll .-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.)
Kim at Hiraeth (can I hit you again?!) Well I am going to ... this lady has been such a mentor and inspiration in so many areas to me. I sat one night into the wee hours of the morning reading the whole way through her blog back to her day one! You, Kim, are a fine lady. thank-you. PS - this gal made me one of the nicest bookmarks! I was using spaghetti noodles and various other impliments, (uncooked of course), but now I have one dandy bookmark with my blog logo on it! Be sure to check out her blog.
Next person without a blink is The Thirsty Theologian. Here again, when I ran across his blog it just drew me in. I like the way he thinks, like a man who thinks before he speaks. He is a deep thinker. I have learned alot about the reformed faith from his blog. Can't you just smell the pipe smoke when you are there? For some reason this guy reminds me of my Dad and he is probably younger than my 50 years. ;-))) But David, I appreciate you, you are like that commercial for EF Hutton, you know the one "When EF Hutton speaks, everyone listens" ... blog more .. you have tinkered off long enough! Where is the sharp sense of humor? Get with it son!
.-.-.-.-. (you do realize this is a drum roll? Ok we're good to go ...)
Next is none other than FIDE-O! I mean these guys have NO FEAR! Talk about hit you in the face with the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the TRUTH!! AMEN! Their radio show on Unchained Radio is the absolute best of the best ... I mean geez ... YES, YES I admit it ... I am addicted! Confession over, big breath, alrighty then ... muscles are fine, ok ... these fellows, and yes they are younger than me for sure, (and Pastor Gene - I ride a Honda Shadow, you have a good looking set of wheels, keep the shiny side up!), are such a God send, my husband I are recent converts to Covenant Theology/Amil and we have done all our learning through them on the Narrow Mind. You are foolish if you don't tune in. My humble thanks for your teachings, your heart for the Lord you serve ... you are men after God's own heart. (ps - they, too, are EF Hutton guys!!) They remind me of this verse: Jere. 23:29, "Is not My word like a fire?" says the LORD, "and like a hammer that breaks rock in pieces?" That's right, I read nothing but the Best! Yes, I have had headaches sifting thru the old dispensational stuff I was taught and turning/grasping their teachings in my mind, but God is gracious and merciful. Think deep - without a doubt, you have no other choice with these guys. You fellas and yours are prayed for often in our home. You probably are also too busy to participate in this and that is just fine, but kudos to you all!
Rosemary from Seasoning of the Heart -- you are a Lady. The post you wrote for your friends who were going through a divorce was tremendous. Touched me, made me think, and love my husband so much the more. You are one of quiet strength. I appreciate what you bring to mind. A Woman After God's Own Heart and I do not say this lightly.
Pastor Sloan, a reformed Pastor whom the Lord has brought to me as a friend thru the church I attend, where he did his training before having his own church to shepherd. He, too, causes me to think. He, like me, is new at blogging so pay him a visit. His posts on The Valley of Vision prayers makes me think more deeper. He reminds me of this verse: Jere. 5:14: Therefore thus says the LORD God of hosts: "Because you speak this word, Behold, I will make My words in your mouth fire, And this people woods, And it shall devour them." Pastor Sloan has recently been ordained.
Well ... I really enjoyed this one ... give yourselves a slap on the back! You all cause folks to THINK Deep! You are a blessing to many and this is my way of saying ... Thank You, you are appreciated so very, very much. Have a blessed Easter, from our home to yours! We serve an awesome God, do we not!! Amen!
