The Thinking Blogger Award
Having been away all week, dashing around the country, it was lovely to get home last night and to get a sleep in my own bed! It was even more of a delight when I checked my emails and was told that two of my friends in Blogland, Janna of Bread Crumbs and Simple Christian Living had bestowed on me a wee present.


The Thinking Blogger Award was started by the thinking blog and has spread around the globe quickly. The rules are simple:
  1. If, and only if, you get tagged, write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think
  2. Link to this post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme
  3. Optional: Proudly display the 'Thinking Blogger Award' with a link to the post that you wrote
Ladies, thank you so much for your kind words, encouragement and prayer. You have been such a blessing to me through your posts and conversations, so it really is an honour and a delight to have been given this. As I have said before, this really really is just me thinking out loud. With my lengthy commutes, I have plenty of time to ponder (and at worst, ruminate) so you all get the brunt of it!

Can I introduce you to my winners of the Thinking Blogger Award? Please visit them all to have a look around.

  • Solo Femininity by Carolyn McCulley - I first read her book, Did I Kiss Marriage Goodbye?, then started reading her blog. She is a wonderfully wise woman who tackles the big issues of being a single woman pursuing biblical womanhood. Her articles will challenge and encourage your thinking.
  • Middle Years by Linda - I know she has already been nominated, but I wanted to make sure to share her blog with you. Given that I am a 26 year old Scotswoman, you might not think that a Texan grandmother and I would have much in common. Instead, we have become friends through reading her refreshing and honest posts and because when she says that she will pray for you, you know that she is. I can't tell you how much that has blessed me.
  • Small Things by Sherrin - We have many similar ideas on biblical womanhood and the Christian life and when we don't, it provokes some fascinating conversations. She is obviously someone who thinks deeply and carefully.
  • John Dekker's Journal - I've enjoyed reading John's insightful blog and his comments here and across friends' blogs. He's a theology student so shares much of his studies with us. I have enjoyed this week's Readings for Holy Week.
  • A Gracious Home by Sallie - She's already been nominated too, but I couldn't miss her out given that I can't go shopping without hearing her voice (or how I imagine her voice to be!) saying "Use it up, Wear it out, Make it do, Do without." On this and many other issues, she has made me think.
Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.
1 Thessalonians 5:11


(P.S. If anyone knows why my blog design is misbehaving, with the side bar hiding down at the bottom, can you tell me how to fix it? Thank you!)

Thank you! I did also got tagged by MissM, but I really appreciate the thought.

I'll have to check out the rest of the links. I love the "Use it up, Wear it out, Make it do, Do without" mantra.

Thank you so much Keziah. This is such an honor coming from someone I deeply admire. Your posts are always so thoughtful, so sincere, so infused with the wonderful spirit of your love for the Lord. I am so happy we have gotten to know one another. I do pray for you. I sort of put you and my precious daughter together - praying for many of the same things for both of you. I look forward to see what the Lord is going to do in the lives of two very special young women.
Thank you Keziah.

I am behind with blogs, and so are you.
I ama mechanic, and worked on a old Beetle today for the first time ever, just like your dream car.

You came to my mind this morning, so I prayed for you.
