Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

This beautiful award was given to me last week, but I am just now able to share with you my sweet thanks for the acknowledgement. This was very unexpected because I do believe it is my very first award in the blogworld. I have never written to seek approval from anyone other than God, but I must say it was a blessing to receive.

Many of you ladies have produced so much fruit through your words, that I am humbled to even take a look into your lives. I see God's hand in every word many of you type. I see you fear, but then trust. I see you stumble, but then reach out for help. I see you hurt, but then remember who is able to heal. I see you cry, but then laugh with joy. I see you share the love of Christ in a way that is real and relevant to a lost world and to other fellow believers. This is what I see as Real Fruit.

When I read Galations 5:22-23 that says, "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self control," I think of all the men and women who have taught me through their trials, sufferings, and also their triumphs that ultimately we are to love God and love others. I can't think of a better way to produce much fruit.

I'm delighted you got that well deserved reward Susie. As I read your posts I see the beautiful fruit that is being produced in your life. Your faith, your joy, your service, your friendships, your sharing the word...I'd say you are a blessing to the Father's heart - and to all who know you.

You do deserve this award! We've been on vacation for the past two weeks, so I haven't been able to stop by. You know, just in case you were missing me. =) Anyway, I'm not sure how much blogging I'm going to be doing for a while, but I will continue to pray for you and be checking up on you via email if that's ok.

Blessings!
