Sunshine Blog Award


I have received the Sunshine Blog Award from Adeline of Dancing in the Storm.  Just in time for Spring in South Africa!
Adeline is certainly a ray of sunshine to the ladies she helps get off the streets and bring the Word of God to! I enjoy reading about her adventures in this, as well as her dog Mayah’s daily mischievous adventures!
Thank you Adeline!

The Sunshine Blog Award recognizes bloggers whose writings “light up the dark corners of our minds”.  The rules are simple and provided below:

The Questions:

Favourite colour? Pink and sea green! 

Favourite animal? My favourite animal is animal! I adoooooooorre animals!

Favourite number? 5 – I think it’s because I’m super bad at Math so 5 is the easiest in addition, subtraction etc. hah!

Favourite non-alcoholic drink? Peanut Butter Milkshake and coffee. And anything chocolately.

Favourite alcoholic drink? I don’t drink at all anymore. Not because I’m trying to be a goody two shoes, but I just never liked the taste one bit. Just vile. Even wine is gross.

Facebook or Twitter? I can’t stand Twitter, still don’t know how to use it, that’s why my account is so silent. I have also grown bored of Facebook and tend to only go on if I have an abandoned animal to network 

My Passions? Jesus, my daughter, baking, traveling, animals, reading and learning

Giving or Receiving Gifts? Both!

This Award goes to…


Yes, you, reading this post! Jesus is the Sunshine of my life and you guys are the rays! Most deserving of the Sunshine Blog Award!
Leave a comment so that others may have the link to your blog, and carry on spreading the sunshine in our lives!


Versatile Blogger Award


I have been nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award by the lovely Marty of Walking in Faith.
It is such an honour because I thoroughly enjoy Marty’s blog, the honest way she writes and her humble obedience to the Lord is inspiring! I am glad to have made a wonderful new friend in Christ!

The Versatile Blogger Award was started and is now maintained by bloggers who want to support each other.

The rules are:

• Thank the blogger who gave the award and link to their blog.
• Share seven things about yourself that people may not know.
• Give this award to up to 15 bloggers (and link to them).
• Comment on their blogs to tell them of the award.

The 7 things:
1. I have trypophobia, blugh, which I am prayerfully working through. Just typing the name gives me the creeps
2. I wanted to be a lawyer since I was 6, got into Law school and changed my mind on the last minute. Dumb!
3. I am a terrible introvert. I am most comfortable around people who make me laugh. For an accurate description of me, read this. #11 takes the cake *in stitches*
4. I never close the kitchen cupboards when I’m done, to the irritation of my husband
5. I’m a real Plain Jane. I don’t buy brands, I love being barefoot and don’t even know how to apply makeup properly!
6. I am a chocolate aficionada. I love it. I love it so much I will not share 😉
7. I am one of the few people that have absolutely no interest going into space. It’s a creation wonder, but that infinite blackness I find horrifying.

It is so difficult nominating people because I follow more than 15 blogs and all are deserving. I would like to pass on the Award to:

Hello Beautiful
Searching for a Firefly (I just can’t get enough of that cat!)

Cracked Pot
Dreams of Dunamis
Journey of Joy
Why stay the same
The View from Here
Deborah Online
JS Park

“I Am Part Of The WordPress Family” Award


I have been nominated for a WordPress Family blog award by the lovely Elizabeth of His eye is on this sparrow blog. Her blog is all about hope and she shares great insight on everyday circumstances by linking it back to God and His work in our lives.

I certainly do feel part of a family among all the Christian blogs I follow and who follow me. It’s almost the technological and modern way of fellowshipping! (laugh)
So, Jesus, this award is for You! My favourite family member of all.

The rules are:

1. Display the award logo on your blog.

2. Link back to the person who nominated you.

3. Nominate 10 others who have positively impacted your WordPress experience.

4. Don’t forget to let your WordPress family members know of your nomination.

5. Please pick 10 people that have accepted you as a friend, and spread the love!

Yikes, how do I only choose 10 blogs? I follow way more than 10 which I really enjoy and all are deserving!  These particular bloggers have visited my blog often, and have been very encouraging for me. I, in turn, have learnt a  lot from them.
In no order of preference, they are:

Dreams of Dunamis
Debs Blog
Being Rebekah
Larry Who
Chief of the Least
Did Jesus have a Facebook page
Sloppy and Wet Kisses
Legion Be Gone

A message from Shaun, the creator of this award:
This is an award for everyone who is part of the “WordPress Family” I started this award on the basis that the WordPress family has taken me in, and showed me love and a caring side only WordPress can. The way people take a second to be nice, to answer a question and not make things a competition amazes me here. I know I have been given many awards, but I wanted to leave my own legacy on here by creating my own award, as many have done before. This represents “Family” we never meet, but are there for us as family. It is my honour to start this award.
