My dear little sis Lydia has tagged me in The Barnabas Award! Thank you so much Lydia! I am both humbled and honored that you find my little ole blog a source of inspiration and encouragement!
Here are the guidelines:
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.
Answer the questions you got asked.
Lastly, ask your nominees five questions. Why five? Because it is the number that signifies grace.
“You have been chosen for this recognition because of the encouragement and inspiration you bring to your readers.”
5 things about Stu that you may not know:
I skipped church one Sunday so I could stay with my mom during a bad storm. Good thing I did as we were both huddled in the hallway closet as a 🌪️ ripped through our neighborhood. We had two trees fall on our house. One landed in my room and the other in my sister’s.
I have used gummy worms as bait when I would run out of real worms or crickets. Caught many a bream that way 😊
I used to love sitting in the boat with my PawPaw fishing with a cane pole and using the old school real corks. Now I prefer tight lining that’s to my best friend Joey.
I love walking behind Angie for a bit so she has to wiggle her fingers behind her back saying come here😊 Her hand misses mine. It’s the little things!
I miss my peeps in Shreveport so bad sometimes it hurts at times. It’s worse after talking with one of them on the phone.
Here are the questions asked of me:
1. Which of your family members encourage you the most? How?
My mom for sure! She always encouraged to keep going to church even when she couldn’t go due to her fibromyalgia…though we had no idea what that even was back in the 80’s. I know Mom was praying for me when I lost my way and even to this day I know she is! I love you Mom!!♥️
2. Who do you go to when you need encouragement?
Straight to Angie because she knows me so well! She gives me advice to where my brain will comprehend it. And many times it’s just hearing her voice that is encouragement enough!
3. Who was your first blog follower?
Catherine over at Everyone Has A Story. Unfortunately she is no longer blogging. She will still write things up on Facebook.
4. What is an encouraging Bible verse or quote that you enjoy?
5. Do you encourage others when you see them crying or distressed? How do you encourage them?
I try to! Even people I don’t like.
I will offer them a hug, advice the Lord places upon me or I’ll just be an ear to simply listen as they let it all out or I’ll be a shoulder to cry on. I always let them know I am praying for them.
Here are my fellow bloggers that encourage and inspire me:
My questions are: (I’m keeping a few that were asked of me)
1. Do you encourage others when you see them crying or distressed? How do you encourage them? ( I like this one, had to include it)
2. Who was your mentor growing up?
3. Who do you go to when you need encouragement?
4. Which teacher do you feel encouraged you to keep learning and to do your best?
5. As a blogging community, how can we encourage one another more?
