AWARDS and such
Well it is said that it a woman's perogative to change her mind, or can one re-consider things in life"I think so"....
With that said I am CHANGING my own personal policy on awards etc..I have been struggling when recently Susan, of Penless writer recently awarded me a wonderful award.
I also am quoting from Jennifer's comment on awards to me that just made sense:
"Deby, I was torn between receiving awards and not, and if you read the link as to why I am going to continue. At first I was going to stop participating, but years ago my mom gave me good advice that I forgot for a bit. Sometimes the person giving needs that in their spiritual growth.Same with receiving. It is all too easy to be strong and give everyone else something, but to humble oneself and just say thank you is hard.
Almost as if one is implying that one is too good. We are in this together as Christians. We are to uplift eachother and fellowship with one another.By using an award to uplift another is wonderful. I am living testimony of this. Susan gave me the methetes award and wow. She had no idea that I have been feeling overwhelmed. I do lean on Jesus, but to be picked up by another Christian, made me as a person so uplifted. It was wonderful that others see my struggles and my strengths."
So with that said...I will try to go back in my past emails and see IF I can re-coup...but in the scheme of things I guess it does not matter..
Please understand I am not doing this to GET MORE,,,and also realize..that it too can take me weeks to do the work it takes to then award them properly.
Truly, AS imperfect as I am, my prayer is that someone in blogland is blessed by things posted..whether,trivial , funny, or profound. I know I am blessed by all of you in SOOOO many ways.
