Me? Very Inspiring Blogger Award?

I have been nominated for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award, thanks to Melanie Jean Juneau at Mother of Nine9.  She is an inspiration to all of us who know her humor and spiritual depth. As a new blogger I am honored to participate in such a supportive adventure. In accepting this award I share 7 things that inspire me:

  1. The humility and joy of Pope Francis.
  2. The wisdom and consolation from the Holy Spirit after receiving the Eucharist.
  3. Praying Psalm 139 in which I find my identity.
  4. Beholding a magnificent sunrise over the lake as a display of God’s faithfulness.
  5. Praise and worship at prayer meetings.
  6. The Catholic Writers Guild and our new local critique group.
  7. God’s loving gaze in Adoration.

I’m newer at it than you are, and am both touched and astonished to be on your list. It’s going to be fun to pass the award on – and make our little corners of the blogosphere a cheerful place! 😀
