  1. Thank you so much for this honorable nomination! I can’t wait to get started ๐Ÿ™‚ I have to say, as well, that I was pleasantly pleased to see you mention Petra! Very few people I mention them to even know who they are, HAHA! (My favorite song by them is Judas Kiss). Be blessed! And thank you again!

  3. Stuart, Thank you for nominating my blog for this award. I consider it an honor. All glory to God! I appreciate you thinking of me. I will have to pray over this and see what the Lord wants me to do with it. I responded to you on my blog, but I am not sure where that response ended up, so hopefully you don’t get two responses from me. I think you came up with really good questions. I liked them a lot! Sue

    1. You’re welcome Sue. Don’t feel pressured to write a blog post or anything, as I’m sure some of the others will not. And that’s cool.

      I’m glad you liked the questions. Keep doing as the Lord leads. And thank you for allowing Him to use you to bless others.

    I am deeply humbled, and honored beyond words to even be considered as a nominee. It leaves me truly at a loss for words to think someone like me could be used by God to minister to others for His glory. Truly grace to grace to go from ashes to beauty. Thank you brother Stu. God’s blessings upon you and your family . . .
