I'm Creative!

Or so says Heidi, anyway. :) She has awarded me the Creative Blogger Award! Okay, Heidi, I'll buy that. Lately I do feel pretty stinking creative. Thanks for noticing and giving me a big ego to boot! *grin*

The rules are here. I get to award any of five different awards to five people. I am honored when people give me awards, but I must admit that I always get a little anxious over it because it means having to single out some of my bloggy friends. All of my bloggy friends are absolutely fabulous, and it's always hard for me to pick just a few.

So, here are five of the people that came to mind when I read over the rules and awards.

I am passing on the Creative Blogger Award to:

*Jessica at Life as I See It. She always has creative posts including lots of gorgeous photos, interesting sounding recipes, and videos of her super cute baby boy.

I'm giving the Thoughtful Blogger Award to:

*Jessica at Life is RANTastic! Jessica the Rock Chick is always really sweet and thoughtful with her comments and emails. Go visit her blog, she's a lot of fun! She's on her way to joining the ranks of A-List Bloggers, so help her out! She's one of the nicest bloggy people I've met. :o) She's also really creative, so I had a hard time deciding which one to give her.

The Inspirational Blogger Award is going to:

*Laurel at Laurel Wreath. I've known Laurel for quite a few years in internet land. We first met on a Christian forum and she has always been an inspiration to me. She's a great wife, mom, friend, and blogger.

*Lisa - The Preacher's Wife. I just found Lisa's blog this year, and everytime I "visit" her, I walk away both inspired and in good spirits. Her stories about her children are adorably funny, and she has a way with words that just makes you feel good. Her love for the Lord and His people is so obvious. I'm sure she'll be embarrassed if she reads this, but her writing and teaching style (she has a great Bible study she's doing at the moment - link in my sidebar) reminds me so much of Beth Moore. I just know God uses her and will continue to use her greatly in years to come.

*Iris at Sting My Heart. Iris is another one I found just this year. She has a very inspiring testimony and I am always encouraged by her posts.

So there you have it! Now it's 3am and I'm going to bed. I get to go to the dentist AND the optometrist this afternoon. Yay.

So how did you know Laurel was starting a blog? Neat story there...

Jessica Morris said...

Aw thanks!! Judah is still not himself, which means I am not myself, so it may be awhile before I get the award up on my blog - but THANK YOU!! =)

Oh, Crystal - thank you so very much for the award. You are very kind -- I am thrilled that God uses my little blog to encourage you.

I will hopefully will have a post up by the end of this week.

Be blessed today and always.
