Last week I was shocked to discover that angelmeg at Transcendental Musings nominated me for this award. I am amazed by her kind words and the nomination, and happy that my writings have apparently had an impact of some sort on others. All for God's Glory!
Here are the rules:
1. Copy these rules.
2. Reflect on five bloggers and write a least a paragraph about each one.
3. Make sure you link to this post so others can read it and the rules.
4. Leave your chosen bloggers a comment to let them know they've been given the award.
5. Put the award icon on your site
So, without further ado, and in no particular order, here are the bloggers who have also impacted me:
Angela Messenger: I found my way to her blog after she left a comment on mine, and for some reason, I have never left! She's one of those "gotta-check-every-day" blogs that addresses a range of things; deep spiritual introspection, everyday life, family, work, and liturgical conundrums. I always learn things from her, and so I encourage you to spend some time over at her place, too; you may find yourself cheering on her pro-life actions!
Father V. : Father V.'s posts are informative, inspiring, and oftimes, hard-hitting. He is in the process of providing ongoing catechesis in the art of symbols in the Church, as well as the realities of serving as a priest in today's world. His parish is lucky to have him, and I'm thrilled to have made his acquaintance (via blogging).
The Recovering Dissident Catholic: : Cathy_of_Alex does NOT mince words. That quick mind and biting sarcasm (with a soft heart) used to work for another side....and when she learned the Truth, she grabbed onto it with hands and feet and has resolved never to let go! And now she puts her talents to work in putting the rest of us to shame when she puts common behaviors of Catholics under the microscope of what is proper...and what is lazy or sinful. God bless her and may every other recovering dissident out there come to see the light so clearly!
Cow Bike Rider: He is on a journey, and is undergoing some very deep introspection which requires not only an assessment of what he has always believed, but what he is being lead to believe. And he is inviting us along on his journey, inviting comments and advice as he pursues God's will for him. I am constantly astounded by the fortitude of people who seek to follow Christ, even in the face of adversity that seems to try to prevent the steps they need to take. My prayers are with him as he undergoes perhaps the most reflective and exciting experience of his life.
Vive Jesus!: Ali is a fan of St. Frances de Sales and an author of deep reflections that will bring tears to your eyes. She has the ability to take a snapshot of life and serve it to you in a whole new perspective.
I pray you all will visit the blogs noted here, and find yourself, through them, lead ever closer to the Lord.
