My favourite things/ Pay it forward/The Liebster Award

I'm so new at this
putting down words
in type
not pencil
on a computer
not paper

and now the kindness of people
comes to bless me...
dear 'T' at A Seed Inspired
nominated me for the Leibster Award

Thanks so much 'T'
my heart feels it is wrapped in a big hug!
Dear "T"your 'A Seed Inspired" blog does exactly that to me ... inspires me!
I know when I visit you I will find beauty and truth so I eagerly look for your posts.
blessings to you!

Here are the rules for the Leibster Award:
1. Show your thanks to the blogger that nominated you.
2. Reveal your top picks and let them know.
3. Post the award on your blog.
4.Bask in the love and support in blogsphere.
5. And best of all…have fun and share it too. 

This award is given to bloggers who have fewer than 200 followers all in the spirit of fostering new connections. Liebster is German and means ‘dearest’ or ‘beloved’ but it can mean favorite.
Since I can only choose 5  I wish to acknowledge the five following blogs for their diverse styles of blogging. They are unique with what they share and contribute to the world of blogging.

In no particular order:

My Nominations:(if some have more than 200 followers, I get to choose again)
First,  I want to acknowledge a wonderful blog:

I can always find encouragement and gentle admonition so simply and profoundly put! Thanks Deb!

second, a wonderful lady who has become a dear friend in blogland and beyond,
Dawn Blanchard and her

Dschondog's Blog

It is always a surprise to see what she will post... it is always a study of brilliance out of the depth of a kind heart... I go away deeply pensive and alive. Thank you Dawn.

Third, my friend in the Lord going back to raising my babies days, her teaching them Sunday school...and now in separate parts of the province our blogs have brought us together again in the Lord!
Andrea Dawn's heart is tender and discerning in the ways of the Lord and the beauty in her photography and written word is always a joy!

fourth, a new blog I have begun visiting... I am in awe of the beauty there.... prose, photography; a depth of faith and pensiveness in the Lord that lingers long after I go away. I nominate you, Planaquarium for your deep and amazing work. My heart is always filled.

and fifth, an amazing lady (and her family... their blogs are posted in hers) Pippa Jarvis, a daughter of  founder of "The Love of Christ Ministries in Johannesburg SA", Thea Jarvis[another amazing lady].
Her blog is filled with her heart concern for the many abandoned that are brought to their home, and their many adopted ones... it is also my heart's cry ... so I nominate Pippa


these friends... my favourite things



  1. Dear Susan,

    There are no words for this blessing. I will, however, honor your request and nominate five of my own in thanksgiving. But first, I must sleep. The mind needs to think about this a bit, but only after a night of rest. Your kindness will give me sweet dreams.

    May the Lord keep us always in touch,

  2. Thank you so much, sweet faith filled Susan. What a beautiful thing for you to do! I must admit that I do not know how to do the award accepting and giving. :( But I am blessed that you would think of me!

  3. What fun - I love it when someone shows kindness and love in ways you never expected! Enjoy being 'dearest'!

  4. What a lovely award for you! Congratulations! And happy Tuesday.
