Thankful Thursday

Well, I have had some lovely news - two awards given to me today!
The first, from Piacere





"Mathetes is the Greek word for disciple, and the role of the disciple (per the Great Commission) it to make more disciples. I'd like to take the opportunity to award five other bloggers with this award and badge for acting in the role of a disciple of Christ. These five all share the message in their own creative ways, and I admire them all for what they do."



Fancy me being called a disciple! I'll tell Fr. J - he could do with the laugh! (He's already warned me off his new 'Enquirers Group' on Tuesday night. He wants me to make the tea, but on no account am I to sit in at the meeting and 'cause trouble'. Charming)!

I would like to pass this award to Amrita, especially for this post, which moved me to tears, Lori, who can always find joy in the littlest things, Karen Edmiston, whose blog has a shockingly clever title, and whose posts are not bad either, Vicki at Virtue Alert who retains happiness in the midst of teenagers and Angela at Where Angels Go for some good old fashioned Catholicism.

Here are the rules, ladies. Off you go and pass it on!

In the spirit of this award, the rules are simple. Winners of this award must pick five other "disciples" to pass it on to. As you pass it on, I just ask that you mention and provide links for
(1)this post as the originator of the award ( Dan King of
Management by God)
(2) the person that awarded it to you, and then
(3) name and sites of the five that you believe are fulfilling the role of a disciple of Christ.

My other award was from Rose at La Vie en Rose...


...which I now get to pass on to ten other blogs. So here is a list of ten, some of which I have just found in the last week.

I know it's eleven - so sue me!

Thank you again for both awards, and I hope you all find some new blogs you enjoy from the lists!

I'm overwhelmed by this award, especially as I'm fairly new to blogging! Now you will think I'm a fool, but I don't understand how to get it or how to send it on. Told you I was a technophobe! Help!

Thanx for replying so quickly. Will have a trawl through & find 10! Sam will be able to fix it for me, I think. He says he can do it.

Thank you SO MUCH! You made me smile today when I didn't think I had a smile in me. It's been such a hard week being away from my little guy. He just had to go to urgent care and I'm thousands of miles away.

Amrita said...

Thank you Jackie for this award, which has humbled me greatly.
I am a servant, trying to follow Jesus our Servant King.

You are such a blessing to me. Specially the way you deal with your daughters, its a great joy to me. When i was growing up I faced rejection and ridicule, and suffered low self esteem and lack of self confidence.So its so beautiful to see how you are bringing up your daughters and living for Christ.

Oh I wish i was there for Father J 's meeting.I would grab a cup of tea and jump into the ladies circle too.

I 'll put the award on my blog and comply by all the rules. Only it takes me longer because of electricity shortage and lessened Broadband bandwidth.
Anyway i should be counting my blessings.

Congratulations on your award- and I'm going to have fun today visiting those that you've passed it on to!

Thanks for the warning about romantic candlelight in the bedroom.....it explains why you're always in the kitchen.. Have you managed to replace the singed curtains yet?

Beth said...

Thank you so much for the award!

I have enjoyed reading about you and your pride. Can't wait to read more funny stories from across the pond! (Although there are some words or phrases that I have to Google in order to understand!)

Beccy said...

Hi, congratulations on your awards and thank you for passing one on to me. I can't imagine what life is like with five daughters but I'll be back to find out!

Vienna for Beginners said...

Thank you for taking the time to comment on my blog. You inspired me to amend today's post! :-)

Karen E. said...

Thanks so much! And you must know how much I love your retro art .... :-)

bella mocha said...

Now...see...it's Friday, and you're not here!
You're not still dusting under the church pews, are you?

sigh...

I'm usually an early riser, but seeing as it's Saturday tomorrow, I'll get up extra late, just for you. Then you can post before I get up.

I like to have something good to read with my porridge and mocha.

Rachel Anne said...
