This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope. It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every moring: great is thy faithfulness. The Lord is my portion saith my soul: therefore will I hope in him. The Lord is good unto them that wait for Him, to the soul that seeketh him. It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD. Lamentations 3: 21-26

Sometimes I am slow. Well...okay, I am slow most of the time. You would think I would be nominated for the "Moves Like a Turtle Award." But sweet Maria at Free to Fly gave me the Ray of Sunshine award almost a gazzillion two weeks ago. And it really blessed me. Thanks Marie! Those rays of sunshine gave me the warm fuzzies!

And then today Renee at 2 Peas in a Pod shared her Spirit of Christmas award with me. The award note says: This award is for those who talk about and show the spirit of Christmas in their blogs. What is the Spirit of Christmas you ask?Quite simply it is those that have a generous and giving nature. Those who care about others. Those who have a kind word to say or a broad shoulder to lean on in the times that others need that. Those who display the “Spirit of Christmas”. This was like getting a hug across the internet! Thanks Renee!

What I would like to do is to share both these awards with all the bloggers who have contributed to my Blessed by the Best post. You all are the ones keeping me reminded of the joy of this holiday season. And if you are going to let me share a wonderful Christmas post, but just havent' gotten that post finished yet--you can share the award too.

We'll be sharing ideas for quite awhile. I've enjoyed visiting and reading all that's been shared so far.

I think you deserve those awards, and I understand about being a turtle! :) I think I still have one award that I need to give out....
I love the new picture up top! Definitely brings Christmas to your blog :)
I'm still thinking about the post to go on your blessed by the best list. I haven't forgot. :)
