Blogathon – Part 3

Onward! Jeff at Reveling in the Overflowing Grace of God tapped me to participate in this Blogathon. Part 1 is around here somewhere. Part 1 consists of the 11 Things About Me and the 11 Answers to the 11 Questions Jeff asked.

Part 2 is around here, too. In Part 2 I tapped or tagged 11 bloggers I routinely follow and asked them to participate in this Blogathon. And, for the record, I was not allowed to tap Jeff.

Here in Part 3, I am to ask those bloggers 11 questions. Those 11 questions are:

1. What’s a difficult situation that you’re willing to share with us and how did you handle it?

2. What’s one of your favorite movies?

3. Who is one of your favorite book characters?

4. What country do you want to visit before you leave this earth? Why?

5. What do you like about yourself?

6. What is one of your favorite Bible verses?

7. Look at your feet. Do you like them? Think about all the features you may not like about your body. Why do you suppose God made you look like you do?

8. Are you a cat or a dog person? Why?

9. Do you think there is intelligent life other than ours out there in the universe? If so, what do you think they are like?

10. What’s the most beautiful thing you’ve ever seen?

11. What’s your favorite painting? Have you seen it in person?

Okay, now to let the bloggers I tapped know I tapped them.

Many blessings to all!

“And the 15 Nominees Are” ( by Carley Evans )

The 5 bloggers/blogs that I already gave the MOST VERSATILE BLOGGER AWARD to are:

RESTING IN HIS GRACE — by M.T. Sweat. I love Pot Pie.

TWO MINUTES OF GRACE by Debbie Branson also comes to mind along with the peace she gives.

SUMMATHETES by Brian. I’ve been following this blog for several years now. I can not recommend this blog enough.

THINKING OUT LOUD by Jim Thornber; always thought-provoking.

A PAUPER’S PEN AND PARCEL by Dave Bignell; infrequent posting, but always good stuff.

Stand by…

Okay, I just nominated CATHOLIC JOURNALING by Jason.

And this evening, I nominated A FATHER’S LOVE, a wonderful blog by Jeffrey Miskell about a horrible event.

Also, I discovered SPTP2011, a funny blog about our life with God.

Do check out LONG WIND for some very fine ‘heavy’ reading — theology!

What’s the count? Makes 9 bloggers — all deserving of the Most Versatile Blogger award…

More to come…

Number 10 is THE WONDERFUL COUNSELOR — these posts are longer than I usually read, but are worth the extra effort.

Next comes No. 11 — GROWING WITH JESUS by Pastor Baumann. I just discovered this one.

No. 12 is CHRISTIANITY 201. Check this one out when you have some time to peruse; so much to see and do and read here.

And No. 13 is WALKING IN THE WILDERNESS — I just like this whole set-up.

The remaining two will have to wait until tomorrow…

And, here it is — the next morning and I nominate No. 14: WORDS FROM THERE.  And finally the one I’ve been saving: THE CHRISTIAN GAZETTE by Patricia, a blog that brings many great posts together in one spot.

Versatile Blogger Payback x 5 ( by Carley Evans )

Thanks to Jeffrey Miskell and his trusty YouTube video, I now know how to add links within my posts. Yay, Jeffrey! Thanks so much!

So, as some of you may know, I’ve been nominated/awarded the Most Versatile Blogger Award or the Versatile Blogger Award 5 times now; I think.

To thank each of you — here goes!

First, Jeff nominated me — his blog is Reveling In The Overflowing Grace of God. For his nomination, I broke the rules and only nominated 5 bloggers/blogs. What can I say — I’m a non-conformist! Thank you Jeff!

Next, Jeffrey was kind enough to nominate me. Jeffrey writes A FATHER’S LOVE ! I have yet to nominate blogs in response to his gift!

Next, I received a nomination from M.T. Sweat who writes all over the place! But his home is RESTING IN HIS GRACE. Go check out Pot Pie. For this nomination, I haven’t followed the rules at all — except to thank M.T. But, I’m working on it.

Then, I was nominated by Drusilla Mott who writes DRUSILLA MOTT. I’ve thanked Drusilla, but nothing more yet.

Finally, I was happy to receive a Versatile Blogger Award from Ula who writes JESUS CARRIES ME. Again, all I have done is thank Ula most sincerely.

So, here are my 15 VERSATILE BLOGGERS: Okay, stand by…

Cleaning Up

This morning, I cleaned up my blogroll. I discovered a few links directing myself and others to ‘dead’ or ‘failed’ blogs — one was a duplicate, living blog!

I can’t remember but on one blog I checked out a few minutes ago, I found the definition of mission — a task for a specific person or group of people. My mission is this blog, my facebook wall, my facebook page, and my other blog — obsecrations.

Sad to find others who lost the drive to continue blogging — dare I say ‘for the Lord?

Where does that drive come from? I think those of you who blog ‘for the Lord’ despite the appearance of limited readership know that answer.

I’m Part of the 2011 “Post A Day” Challenge

I’ve decided I want to blog more! Rather than just thinking about doing it, I’m starting right now.  I will be posting on this blog once a day for all of 2011. This has been my goal all along —

I know it isn’t easy, but it’s been fun, inspiring, awesome and wonderful. Therefore I’m promising to make use of The DailyPost, and the community of other bloggers with similiar goals, to help me along the way, including asking for help when I need it and encouraging others when I can.

If you already read my blog, I hope you’ll encourage me with comments and likes, and good will along the way. I know I’ve got some readers, but few of you take time to comment or like or rate my posts. I’d really appreciate any or all of that encouragement.

Thanks; and happy reading in 2011!
