Passing Through with Substance...

Blog of Substance… Wow!

My friend Jewel at Down In My Little Valley, chose me as one of her recipients of the Blog of Substance award. WooHoo! Thanks Jewel, you are too sweet! Go visit Jewel's corner of the blogging world, you won't be disappointed!

According to Webster’s Dictionary the meaning of substance includes substantial or solid character or quality. Substantial meaning of ample or considerable amount or size.

As part of the acceptance of the award you have to choose 5 words that sum up the philosophy, motivation and experience of your blog. You also have to pick 5 recipients deserving of the award. This is a hard task because there are so many good blogs out there it is hard to choose.

I looked back through my posts and remembered when I started blogging. I had always kept a journal not faithfully, but periodically. It has always been a way for me to express myself, what I am feeling and thinking. When I started blogging I knew it would be a way to witness to others and share my faith. I wasn’t sure anyone would even take the time to read it, but when I look at my stats I am overwhelmed. Isn’t God amazing?

The words I chose to represent my blog are:

Just Passing Through Enjoying Life

My five recipients are:

Elaine at Peace For The Journey
Kathleen at
Sassy Granny
SusanD at
This Day
Joyful at
A Joyful Chaos
Cathy at Tales Of The TCKK Family

If you have not checked out these blogs I guarantee you will enjoy yourselves and meet a wonderful friend and blogging buddy!

Remember we are just passing through; hope to see you on the other side!

“In my Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.” John 14:2
