Liebster Blog Award

 Thank you,  Jess, @ http://jemiluce.wordpress.com/ for nominating me for the

Liebster Blog Award!

 First I asked myself, What is  a Liebster?

and then, (as my mother always said when I was a kid,)

I looked it up!

 Liebster is German and means sweetest, kindest, nicest,

dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome.

So this is an honor and a blessing. Very kind words indeed!

Proverbs 16:24 says,

” Gracious words are like honey, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.”

So thank you very much Jess, and I hope that those of you reading this will stop by and pay

her bright ,new bloghttp://jemiluce.wordpress.com/  a visit!
