"Once our eyes are opened, we cannot pretend we don't know what to do. God, who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, knows that we know, and holds us responsible to act." Proverbs 24:12

Awards, Tags and Games! Oh my!

My new bloggie friend, Katie from This Crazy Life was "feelin' the love" yesterday. And guess what? She started spreading it around. All the way to ME! I'm honored that she chose me for this adorable I Love Your Blog Award. Awww, shucks, Katie! Thank you! You made me smile BIG! It came at a great time since my posts have been pretty controversial lately and I've been a bit stressed over the possibilites of what could happen to this country in a week and half. You guys that have emailed me and commented that you will continue reading and support me on this issue....Thank You! You bless me and I'm definitely feelin' the love, too!

The rules say that I need to pass this on to 7 other bloggers, but since I have a game and I've been tagged twice and those need nominations too, I'm leavin' it up to you guys to decide who wants to play. I nominate all of you on my "Follow Me" and on my blogroll for the I Love Your Blog Awards. I really do and many times in the midst of craziness I stop and think about when I could find some quiet time to see what's happening out in blog land. I really look forward to reading everyone's thoughts.

Now onto some more fun stuff.

This was a double whammy! I was tagged twice (and I apologize to both ladies for having taken so long to do this)! My first tagger was Trish at Hannah, Hailey and Taylor. I've had the immense pleasure of meeting 2 of these beautiful little girls and they are precious!! We are all awaiting Miss Taylor's arrival from China in what hopefully will be the very near future!

Are you ready? Here are 7 of my random/weird thoughts about myself:

1) I very rarely wear sneakers.

2) I research everything (adoption, diseases, ailments, vacation spots, hobbies, etc.).

3) I can't drink soda without ice in it. (very tough for me while in China).

4) I get motion sick really easily.

5) Oxtail stew and pigs feet stew are two of my favorite meals.

6) I love Disney World and watching the parade usually fills me with so much excitement that I cry.

7) I am allergic to cats and ferrets.

There you go. My 7 weird quirks. If anyone decides to do this (since I'm tagging everyone!) please leave me a comment so I can hop on over and read about your weird and quirky things. I love learning about my friends.

My next tag is pretty cool and something I had not seen before. It came from Jill over at Life At Killeny Glen. I love her blog and she totally inspires me with her beliefs and love for the Lord.

The idea of this game is that you go to your picture file and choose the 4th picture in the 4th file. That scared me a bit, but I told myself I'd play by the rules, whatever picture it was, that's what I'd post. Trust me, after THIS post, nothing embarasses me anymore. So without further ado, here's my 4th picture of my 4th file:

For those of you wondering who is the guy with the surprised look on his face holding a newborn. It's my son, Adam. My 2nd to oldest "baby". I laughed when I saw the picture, because I don't even remember seeing it before. Here he is holding my sister's precious bundle, Seth, who was just a few weeks old at the time.

He's such a handsome boy. I have a daughter.....

I loved hearing those facts about you. But really, pigs feet stew? ugh. My mom used to love pickled pigs feet.

Too funny, I was tagged for the same thing! You are much more "normal" than me :-(

Oxtail and pig's feet stew??? I really though we were soul sisters until I read this girlfriend! lol

I can't drink my coke without ice either. I don't even like to drink it straight from a can or bottle. Guess I better get over that going to Mexico huh?
