I feel so very blessed to have been given this award by my sweet friend Karen over at http://prayingkaren.blogspot.com/ This is what she said about the award: What is on my heart this morning is Encouragement. A word of hope or affirmation is a real blessing to building one another up - with the view of leading us closer to God.I have been really encouraged, inspired, challenged and stirred up by a lot of posts that I have read. They have drawn me closer to God, desiring to follow in His Footsteps more and more.So, with that in mind I have designed this Award called "You Encourage me to follow in his Footsteps". Denise of ShortyBears Denise is in a lot of pain with her health struggles, but she has a tender heart and is passionate for others to know God and be healed. She perseveres, loves and I have been so blessed reading about the restored relationships within her family. She is a real peacemaker. Thank you so very much Karen, you really bless me.
