Thank you, Thank you very much

I have to apologize for my tardiness in thanking some people for some very special awards I have received over the past few weeks and for not passing them along sooner. Our schedule has been so crazy I haven't gotten around to posting them.

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
I would like to thank Melissa Mashburn from Mel's World for two very special awards. Mel is a great person that I am getting to know through the blogosphere. If you haven't been to Speaks to my Soul Sunday, you need to visit. You can click over from my sidebar.
The first award is the Art Y Pico award. This award is given to those who inspire others with their creative energy and talents in writing, artwork, design or contributions to the blogging community. It originated here.  I don't know how creative I am, but I am honored that someone feels I've made a contribution to the blogging community.

Jenifer at By His Grace was also kind enough to bestow this award to me. I'm doubly honored.
Jenifer hosts Psalm Friday. I haven't had a chance to post on Psalm Friday yet, but I hope to soon and I am always blessed by reading everyone else's post. You can click the button copied below on my sidebar to visit Jenifer.


The rules for the Art Y Pico award are to link to who you received it from and pass it along to five other people who inspire you with their blogs. I did more than five since I received it 
twice :-) I would like to pass this award along to:

The second award is also from Mel's World and is the Brilliant Weblog award. I thrilled that anyone would use the word brilliant to describe my blog. Thanks Mel.  The rules for this award are to:
1. Pass it along to someone you feel is deserving.
2. Link to or display logo of the person who gave the award to you.
3. Nominate 7 blogs you would like to give the award to and link to them.
4. Leave the nominees a message letting them know you gave them the award.

I would like to pass this award on to:

The last award is the Sharing the Love award and I received it from Christelle at Beloved Mama. Christelle is a true prayer warrior and I thank her for sharing her love and prayers with me and my family. If you would like to join in her prayer team, click on her prayer button on my side bar.

This award was created by Memoirs of a Mommy in honor of her son Noah's heart transplant. Click here to read more about the award. The rules for this award are to pass it along to some people whose blogs you love. They make you laugh, smile, leave encouraging comments on your blog. You would like to share some love with because they have uplifted, inspired, encouraged or prayed for you. I would like to pass this award along to:

Congratulations on your awards and be sure to pass them along. Let's keep the bloggy love going. I'm sure I've missed some people who have prayed for me and uplifted me through their blogs... and I'm sorry if I left anyone out. Please know that if you are visiting... I love ya!

being seen more vividly thru YOU!

You certainly are a deserving recipient...we all LOVE YOU! I didn't finish reading all these
recipients but trust that YOU pass on the honor and encouragement and that's what counts, sharing His glory with all we can!

BIG Congratulations! I don't think I've ever seen so many, You must have been saving for some time!

Hope all is well and adjusting to Spencer's new companion! Be blessed

Awwww Amy, you are such a love.

Thank you for thinking of me, my friend.

Joanne :O)

p.s. You didn't tell anyone about the $50 I slipped you at She Speaks to be included in this award, did ya?!?!?

Mrs. N. said...

Thank you so very much and congratulations to you!!

Peggy said...

God bless you Amy! What a JOY and Honor to SHARE LOVE with you & your most honored recipients...I love them all! Again I read happily and went to see their blogs before ever noticing me.

Thank you so much! This one is limitless...I just read your comment to come over when I was reading my TSMSS comments. Couldn't figure it out because
I had been here earlier to Congratulate you! I am planning to pass it on Monday, Aug. 1st...
hope it's ok to wait that long!

Thank you so much for including me!
This is my 2nd award but I LOVE passing it on!!!

Melanie said...

Thanks so much, Amy!

And congrats to you on receiving these awards yourself. They are certainly well deserved.

Have a great week!

Peggy said...

Precious Amy THANKS AGAIN!

I noticed that you already came to visit! So glad...I did some fine tuning and noticed that I forgot the rules of there added now!

So I've posted and SHARED the LOVE!

Thank You from the bottom of my heart, it is exactly what I needed for this special day! (I forgot to invite Crystal-since I didn't know her until this-you think it's too late to invite her?)

Lelia Chealey said...

Hi Amy!!!
I came on your blog one night to "thank you" and my computer froze up. So, I'm so sorry,I'm usually not this rude!! :(

THANK YOU!!!! You are so sweet and what an honor!

Okay, I'm off to read more of your posts. I've been taking care of my grandbaby pretty much full time now so it's been quite the life change that I'm trying hard to adjust to so I haven't been able to do much blog hopping. I hope to get a schedule going this week. Sounds strange, but if I schedule "me-time" to blog hop I'll do it.
Have a great week and thanks again sweet friend!

Kimberly said...

You do SOOOO much better than me at passing on your matter how many have piled up! You are just so gracious!

I just wanted you to know I linked to you in a thank you for this award...FINALLY!

You are such a blessing to "know", Amy!

Love ya',
