an award with some fun!

Thank you to my sweet friend and sister in Christ, Veronica from Luv My Quiver Full of Arrows for thinking about me and my humble little space in the blog-o-sphere (even if it has been terribly neglected). You see, Veronica nominated me for the "YOUR BLOG IS OVER THE TOP" award! Yippeee! I love it!

As with everything, there are some rules that go with this award. I am supposed to answer the questions below with only one word. Then I am supposed to nominate 6 other bloggers to receive this precious little award. They must also play along and answer the questions on their blog and pass along the award to their 6 favorites.

It really is so hard for me to choose just six, and since most of you know me as one to not always follow the rules exactly as I should, I am going to change it up a bit. So many of you have blogs that bless my socks off every time I visit that I just can't narrow it down.

So, I am awarding every one of my bloggy friends who are listed on my sidebar (I have lots of favs!) to join in on the fun. Let me know when you post it on your blog so I could go check it out!

a prayer for Haiti

Dear Lord,

I just want to say thank you Father, because this morning I woke up and knew where my children were. Because this morning my home was still standing. Because this morning I am not crying because my husband, my child, my brother or sister, my parents, need to be pulled out from underneath a pile of concrete. Because this morning I was able to drink a glass of water. Because this morning I was able to turn on the light. Because this morning I was able to take a shower. Because tonight I will have a bed to lay in and a roof over my head. Because I was not planning a funeral. But most of all Lord, I thank you this morning because I still have life and a voice to cry out for the people of Haiti.

Father God, I cry out to You, the One that makes the impossible, possible. The One that turns darkness in to light. I cry out that You give those mothers strength, that you give them peace that surpasses all understanding, that you may open the streets so that help can come, that You give Your strength and Your grace to those running to Haiti seeking to give help, in Your name. I pray that you may provide doctors, nurses, food, water, and all that they need in a blink of an eye.

For all those that have lost family members, give them peace, give them hope, give them courage to continue to go on. Lord, protect the children, especially your beloved orphans that have no family, and shield them with your power.

I pray all this in the name of your precious son, our Lord Jesus Christ.
