Random Stuff

Ya know...being a bad blogger isn't all it's cracked up to be. This just goes to show that you too, can leave your blog for a month (or in my case...2) and still be nominated for an award. Wow. Shalee, being the crazy yet lovable blogger that she is nominated me for the...are you ready for this?....Thinking Blogger Award. I know, I know, you are at this moment wiping away tears from cackling so hard at this nomination, but I prefer to think of them not as tears of laughter at my expense, but rather as tears of rejoicing at the blessing God has bestowed on me.

Now, according to the rules of this nomination, I am to nominate 5 other bloggers that make me think or inspire me. Hmmm...let me see...that would be...ALL of them. Unfortunately, I can't put all of you on here. Since, you know, there are like...MILLIONS of bloggers. Which just goes to show, Americans aren't as dumb as some people like to portray us. Either that or it just shows that I truly have no life. Probably the latter.

So. If you are nominated, please check out the following rules:
1. If, and only if, you get tagged, write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think.
2. Link to this post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme.
3. Optional: Proudly display the 'Thinking Blogger Award' with a link to the post that you wrote (here is an alternative silver version if gold doesn't fit your blog).

Eeenee Meanie Miney Mo....I nominate....

1. A Dusty Frame - because words cannot express how much I admire her strength and her weakness. She makes my crusty heart melt with her compassion and willingness to trust the Lord no matter what her circumstances look like.

2. Antique Mommy - I know, Shalee already nominated her, but the woman makes me laugh so hard that I (and I can't believe I'm saying this...but I'm just gonna go for it) toot. And not from my mouth either. I bet THAT was a little more info than you wanted to know!!! He he he.

3. Healed Waters - this woman is so full of mercy that she makes my heart hurt. I would love to be more like her.

4. Adventures In Mercy - ok, wanna talk about someone who makes you think??? This is her. I just wanna let her know that I won't let the tiny little insignificant fact that she is no longer blogging deter me from nominating her. She does make me scratch my head.

5. Everyday Mommy - whilst EM is probably way too big for this nomination (she only gets like, thousands of e-mails a day) I would like to make it known that even though we don't always agree...the woman makes me think. She makes me dig in my bible and look stuff up FOR MYSELF!!! Shock and awe ya'll, shock and awe. EM...keep on keepin' on honey. I love your heart.

And...that's it. My nominees for the Thinking Blogger Award. Ya'll take a minute to stop by and give these ladies a minute of your time. You'll be glad you did.

Shalee...I would have nominated you, but Peach beat me to it. Thank you again my friend.
