Thinking Blogger Award

WOW. Thank you to Rhonda for "thinking" of my blog! I have only been blogging for a short time, but I LOVE it! I didn't want to just journal my thoughts, I wanted to share things that readers would "pause and think about." We are bombarded every day from so many directions. I want to share some of the things I am pondering that are (hopefully) honouring to God and worth thinking about.
I also want to express special thanks to Cheryl for inviting me to start this blog as part of the 21 Day Reformation . Both Cheryl and Rhonda helped me to get up and running. Their blogs continue to provide encouragement and LOTS to think about. Congratulations - I agree - both of you (& Jen!!) deserve the Thinking Blogger Award!!
For those who have been tagged, the Participation Rules are simple:
1. If, and only if, you are 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.

It has been hard to choose 5 fav blogs. I could choose blogs all within my friends (a fantastic group), but I have chosen some from outside our circle as well in order to share other "Thinking Bloggers" that I have discovered - thus expanding our circle.
Here are my 5 nominees (in no particular order). I have enjoyed checking in regularly to "think" on their posts. Please visit all of them and check them out!
1. Light For the Writer's Soul by Victoria Gaines: I check in every day to read her posts. She includes inspiring quotes and great writing tips & links. She also has a devotional blog to check out.
2. Writer Quotes: Lots of great quotes to get you "thinking"! On the day I am tagging her, she has posted that she will not be continuing. Even so, I am still nominating this blog. There's lots to search in the archives. (Maybe we can encourage her to continue!!)
3. 21 Day Reformation: Always challenging us to allow God to "reform" an area of our lives over a 21 day period. Check in and see what God is stirring up this week. (Even though it's already been tagged, it is worth tagging again in case someone misses the other link.)
4. Laced with Grace: Wonderful devotionals - always challenging us to go deeper. Why not ponder a few?
5. Confessions of a Redeemed Diva: Another new blogger, but LOTS to keep you thinking. Love your enthusiasm Holly!

Thanks Cheryl, I tagged you back cause you ALWAYS make me think. Always have, even when we worked together. I would often be quiet in a staff meeting and wait to hear what you had to say, because it would always be great nuggets of wisdom and insight.

Bless you friend.
