I’ve been thinking of going award free for about a year now. I have become increasingly uncomfortable with the amount of personal information asked for in the acceptance and passing on of these awards, and the amount of time and energy it takes (and requires of others) to fulfill. While I am flattered at the nominations, I just don’t want that to be what New Things boils down to. I want New Things to bring glory to God, if there’s anything good here, it’s all His.
I so enjoy your participation here, and LOVE to have your insight and encouragement on the ramblings that I put into words; please, continue…that’s what gives a blog its true atmosphere.
Kudos for striving to give God the glory with your beautiful blog. I appreciate your perspective. Keep up the good work.
I understand and agree totally.
I thought you would ❤ How is your Momma doing, Kat? Was thinking of her this morning, and said a little prayer.
Thanks, Lyn. Mom is doing pretty well, considering. She actually came home 2 days ago, is getting used to her new 24/7 caregiver, and they seem to be hitting it off. Thank you so much for your prayers. They are powerful, and they have been answered.
Praise God!!! Thanks for the update, Kat.
nothing wrong with that!
I agree. I’m surprised those awards have so many questions asked and not just sent to ya. Guess cuz we’re bloggers and we write about ourselves already, we might be wanting to answer all of those additional questions. But nope, I don’t care to either.
p.s. I’m still praying for ya Lyn and was wondering how your work search has been coming along? Love your new header. So refreshing to see!
Thanks SF. I didn’t mind at first, but more and more it began to feel like an invasion of my privacy…and I’m pretty transparent already, but it just started to feel like the same questions asked for password hints, lol…maybe I’m getting paranoid in my old age, haha.
I also am leery about putting that kind of pressure on others…it’s just easier to say, if you like what you see here, tell God…ultimately, it’s His blog, and He deserves the glory, not me.
My job search is on halt until we know where we are going to reside. My husband landed an awesome job that covers us for now, so we are praising God, and adjusting to what will be our new normal. Thank you so much for your prayers and friendship to me.
I am working on a blog entry about my header…thanks for noticing 🙂 Watch for it, it’ll be done in a jiff.
