It has been a very busy weekend for this blogger. My hubby and I drove from VA all the way up to Philly to buy him a car. He is a car connoisseur therefore the whole USA is his playground. We had planned on only staying for one night, but after trying to drive home in tropical storm Hannah, we decided another night away wouldn't be a bad idea. Thankfully we have loving families. We called our Mom's and one watched our kids on Friday night, while the other watched them on Saturday night. Thanks Moms(and Michelle, Mike, and Dad) we love you!

In the meantime, I've been honored with two awards from two bloggie friends! WOW! Go offline for three days and miss everything. Here are the two special awards that I am graciously going to post about. On Wednesday I'll post about the book, Accountable kids, if you have kids at home you won't want to miss it!

This special award was given to me by Debra at Sparrowgrass. Debra's blog is full of the most amazing pictures. She takes the beauty of the things around her and brings it to life. If you haven't yet been to her blog, click on her blog name above and give your eyes a treat! Thank you Debra, this was very special to me!

This next award was presented to me by Nancy, at Olive Leaf Ministries. Nancy is a more recent bloggie friend. She has been given a difficult hand to deal with as she has a special needs child. God has graciously given her the strength and love that she has needed to raise up this child AND to start up a support group for other parents in this situation. She has also written devotionals and several books. Please take the time to visit her website. Thank you Nancy for thinking of me!

I feel so honored, but really, all the glory be to God! We need each other, we need to lift one another up. That's what this blog world is all about, and I am glad to be a part of it.

Thank you Sonya for the scripture references and encouragement. I'm sure I will need these scriptures handy. I want to write them on my heart. I'm going to add you to my blogroll so that I don't miss any postings.
