Liebster Revisited

Is there any encouragement from belonging to Christ? Any comfort from his love? Any fellowship together in the Spirit? Are your hearts tender and compassionate? Then make me truly happy by agreeing wholeheartedly with each other, loving one another, and working together with one mind and purpose. - Philippians 2:1-2

My sweet, precious friend, Lauren, awarded me with another Liebster Award! This is just such an honor, I had to participate again.

  1. Congrats again, Shelly!! Thanks for sharing the random facts and sharing your answers to the questions! Guess what? I've been bitten by a Black Widow, also! No...I wouldn't recommend it either! LOL However, for some reason, I'm not afraid of them. I've been known to move them from one place to another for their own safety by knocking them into a jar (including bringing their egg sack) ! LOL Silly me.

    Have a blessed day!

    In His grip, Joan
