This is so cool! Steve has given me The Barnabas Award. Thank you so much brother! I am honored and humbled that you see my blog as encouraging and inspiring! Guys please go check out his blog. It is such a breath of fresh air reading his posts. You may lose track of time though 😊 but that’s a good thing. It’s so worth it!

Go say hi! This post will still be here waiting 😊

The Barnabas Award is presented in recognition of the encouragement and inspiration a blogger brings to their readers.

How This Award Works:

Thank the person who nominated you, and share their blog.

Think of five bloggers that encourage and inspire you and nominate them.

List five things about yourself and answer the questions.

Lastly, ask your nominees five questions. Why five? Because it is the number that signifies grace.

Here are 5 things about ole Stu…

1. I am a blood bought child of God, who is trying his best to navigate this crazy world.

2. The things I love most in the world are God, my kids, Angie, chocolate, coffee and Chinese food ❤

3. I am truly blessed to be a part of this wonderful, caring and encouraging family of bloggers!!👊

4. I am a big Marvel & Dc fan. Batman and Flash are my favorite DC characters. Gambit and Moon Knight are my favorite Marvel characters.

Here are Steve’s questions:

1. What is your favorite day of the week and why?

Fridays because that is the night I get my father & son time with Brandon❤

2. Is there some place in your own country that you have never seen that you would like to see?

The Everglades in Florida would be cool to see. Maybe I could see a Manatee 🙂

3. Do you think you will still be blogging one year from now?

Most definitely! I enjoy this community too much to not be a part of it anymore 🙂

4. Other than your own country, what other countries would you like to visit? (no more than 3)

  1. Congrats Stu!🥳 🎉 FL is kinda cool. Never been to the Everglades…My oldest brother lived 60 miles from Disney World while I was growing up, so we spent many summers weekends in FL.. Didn’t know you have 4 eyes, too lol. Mine is mostly for reading and for seeing things up close. 🤓 Thanks for the nomination! 😁

      Mine are for reading too.

      You are very welcome for the award 🙂

        1. Oh they were. Meet some cool people and had fun with the youth group but there was no time for “sight seeing”.

          Lost in Disney World… isn’t that every kids dream…lol. Just kidding. I bet that was a scary 😮

  2. Go Stu! You are a true Barnabas indeed and this award for you is well deserved. I join you in #3 – our community here is filled with so many kinds of faces and gifts and talents that there’s no other community I can see myself apart of. It’s like an extended family in cyber world that feels so connected. Wow! A blessing indeed. Thank you for nominating me. I hope it’s okay that I answer the questions here because I may truly never get around to doing a post over on the page 🤫🥺🙄. Here goes:

    1. What are your inspirations for blogging?
    Only One – Holy Spirit. He opens my eyes and gives me lessons/promptings through different things.
    2. Do you have a favorite quote that gives you encouragement to continue in this journey called life?
    No favorite since my journey goes up, down and all around. I usually get a quote or a verse or even a word with each turn on this journey.
    3. One million dollars is given to you…now what?
    I thank God and the giver! Find out if I need to pay taxes to claim it lol. Give away either a tenth or more. Clear our debts here or at least, pay off our mortgage so I can stop thinking about looming foreclosure. Share with those in need. Put up a little for Zach in an investment until he turns 25.
    4. What is one thing that you feel you could never do to another person?
    Hmm, this one is tough, I can’t think of any and that’s not because I’m evil, it’s just because I’m feeling my mind is so transformed that those “bad” thoughts can not be conjured now.
    5. If you could collaborate with one blogger, who would it be and why? Oh wow! This one might get me in trouble since I’m loving my community. Mums the word then. 🤭
