Praise God and Awards

Let's begin with an Awesome Praise report. If you haven't already been to Melanie's blog this morning, you need to rush right over and read what God has done. All I'm going to say is Andrew is alive and well!

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You God!!!

I have had the privilege of receiving two awards this week. It's been crazy busy around here and this is the first chance I have had to post them.

The first is from one of my newest bloggy friends, Kat at Heart 2 Heart. I think most of you may already know Kat, but if not, please do yourself a favor and go visit her. She is a real gem with a wonderfully loving heart.

Kat has kindly awarded me with this Awesome Prayer Warrior award. I am truly honored to receive it and I thank you Kat.

Now the rules say I am supposed to pass it along to other prayer warriors. I know that we all pray for each other but there are a few who have a deeper passion for prayer or feel called to pray and encourage prayer more strongly. So I am going to pass this on to those people. You may have already received it or you may be one who doesn't post awards and I respect that. If that is the case then just know that you have been thought of.

Beth at An Instrument for His Glory
Alice at From the Heart
Stephanie at SHEPHERD'S WALK at Sweetbriar


The next award came from a dear bloggy friend that I have known for a little while, and his mom. If you know me, then you surely know how much I love animals. Well my furry friend Sitka at All God's Creatures, yes it is his own blog, has awarded me with this humane award. Thank you so much Sitka.

Sitka has a helping ministry working for the Lord. If you haven't met him then please go introduce yourself and tell him I sent you. Say hi to his mom Andrea while you are there too. ;)

As for passing this award along, I want to give this to all of you who have a love and appreciation for the wonderful creatures that God has given us and how much we can learn about our Creator through these animals.


A girl needs to be so lost in God, that the guy is going to have to seek HIM to find her!

Congratulations! Love the awards - they are special just like you.

Hey, I switched my email address and am having some troubles with people receiving mail from me. I sent you an email last night about a blog design. Let me know if you did not receive it and I'll send it again.

Just to say hi & congrats on the awards.

I am so excited about Melanie & Andrew!


Oh- PRAISE OUR JESUS for the news of Andrew and Melanie and ALL God is doing in their midst [through prayer]!

This to me is one of THEEEE most precious awards. Congrats to YOU for receiving it first [along with some others I know]!! You are a faithful Prayer Warrior!

Thank you for awarding this to me at the SHEPHERD'S WALK blog. It is my first one on THAT site! Wow! Such perfect timing as we are having a special DAY of PRAYER on September 19th there. One stranger came to my door today because she thought the prayer day was today! So she got a personal tour through the prayer walk! God also opened a possible door into her home for another Bible study!!!

OUR PRAYERS are being heard because our GOD always ANSWERS - with what is best for us which can include: YES, NO, WAIT, I HAVE SOMETHING BETTER! .... BUT GOD ALWAYS ANSWERS our prayers.

Ps. 139:4
Before a word is on my tongue, You know it completely, O LORD!

Thank you again - and may God continue to bless your life!

Choosing JOY, Stephanie
[JESUS - For His Name's Sake]

You know I've been praying and tracking on Andrew on my FB and blog and I'm so excited about what GOD is doing! He's amazing! Andrew already has a strong testimony!!


You are so precious! May the LORD continue to be glorified in and through all of us online that we would share, minister, PRAY, and especially LOVE one another in ways that glorify HIM.

I love you and thank you for thinking of me and for being an ever present BLESSING in my life.

Hey, Edie! I read Melanie's blog and am overjoyed! God is so good and faithful! Thanks for letting me know!

Congrats on your awards!!

Kelly Combs said...

I knew you'd like the grandparents day post! :-) 'cause you're the best grandparent!

Edie- thanks for blessing me with this award. I desire to continue to grow in my diligence to be a prayer warrior for Him.

You bless me beyond measure.

From the Heart said...

When I went over to Melanie's blog I read about the surgery and that Andrew came through the surgery. Isn't God so good. I'm expecting to hear more wonderful things about this little boy.

Thank you for the Award. I feel honored and so underving of this award. I have received it from another person also but I will add your name to it as I have not posted the award (along with some others from the same person.) I hope to do so next week. Things have been so out of the ordinary around here but I'm trying to get back in the swing of things.
Bless you and thank you so much for all your prayers,

Andrea said...

Before I forget, visit:
This is the blog I told you about. She lives in my home town. I know her. I have not seen her in many years but remember her family, well. Both her parents are ill. Her Dad may have a brain tumor and her mom is facing surgery. Her mom is the primary care giver for her dad. I told her to ask you to make a prayer button, but I do not know if she will. Either way her family needs A LOT of prayer. THANK YOU for joining with me in prayer!

Now....I can not think of anyone more deserving than you. Both of these awards are perfect for you. YOU ARE AWESOME and I thank GOD, He brought you into my world.

Blessings and prayers, andrea

Congratulations on these wonderful awards. You truly do deserve the prayer warrior award because of your diligent prayers for so many, but for you designing so many prayer buttons for those in need.

Once again, my heartfelt thanks for all you do and those wonderful people you have passed these awards on to!

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

I still don't see the GrandMa. But age doesn't count for everything. You have other awards no one mentioned. Stars in your crown, and my heart...

Wendy said...

Congratulations, Edie! Recognition not sought after, but well deserved!
Love and prayers to you...

Congratulations on the awards Edie. No one deserves awards more than you do. Keep up the great work.

Hi sweet Edie. There's nothing as valuable as having praying friends. God hears and God answers! I praise Him with you.
