What a Christmas gift! I came back to the computer after a "mini-Christmas break" with family and friends.... and what to my wondering eyes should appear?! An award from one of my own favorite bloggers! I send many thanks to Anabelle Hazard at Written by the Finger of God. If you haven't yet discovered Anabelle's fine blog, I hope you will click here to do so!
I will quote the text just as I found it, lest anything be left out that the persons I'm passing this to might need to know.
"The ‘rules’ for this award are simple:
1 Select the blog(s) you think deserve the ‘Blog of the Year 2012′ Award
2 Write a blog post and tell us about the blog(s) you have chosen — there’s no minimum or maximum number of blogs required — and ‘present’ them with their award.
3 Please include a link back to this page: — http://thethoughtpalette.co.uk/our-awards/blog-of-the-year-2012-award/ and include these ‘rules’ in your post (please don’t alter the rules or the badges!)
4 Let the blog(s) you have chosen know that you have given them this award and share the ‘rules’ with them.
5 You can now also join our Facebook group — click ‘like’ on this page ‘Blog of the Year 2012′ Award Facebook group and then you can share your blog with an even wider audience.
6 As a winner of the award — please add a link back to the blog that presented you with the award — and then proudly display the award on your blog and sidebar … and start collecting stars…
Yes — that’s right — there are stars to collect!
Unlike other awards which you can only add to your blog once — this award is different!
When you begin you will receive the ’1 star’ award — and every time you are given the award by another blog — you can add another star!
There are a total of 6 stars to collect.
Which means that you can check out your favorite blogs — and even if they have already been given the award by someone else — you can still bestow it on them again and help them to reach the maximum 6 stars!"
As for me: in the last few months I've found significant inspiration, prayer, humor, and a sense of holy community in the following blogs. Therefore, I am thoroughly delighted to pass along the Blog Of The Year 2012 Award to these fine bloggers:
There is another I'd like to mention, and I doubt that the blog's format allows for awards or for special posts about them. But I do want to at least call your attention to this beautiful, Eucharistic, prayerful blog: http://truthhimself.blogspot.
I thank God for giving us all this "blogging" way of glorifying Him!
