Speaking the Truth

We don’t like to speak the truth about evil because we’re going to hurt somebody. Let me tell you, you are going to hurt somebody, but that Somebody is God. If you would rather hurt God than your neighbor, there is something wrong with your spirituality. It’s your obligation to speak the truth and everyone can either take it or leave it. But truth must be in us. We live in such poverty of the truth today.

An Award!!

Good morning all!

I'm excited to tell you that I got an award from
a fellow blogger, SaChay at Life As A Vintage Housewife here on Blogger. I started networking with other Catholic/Christian bloggers and her and I were able to discuss our faiths, eventhough they are a little different, in a way that we both understand each other. Consequently, we have a respect for each other because we both love God, but we celebrate Him in different ways. Isn't the Internet wonderful??!

So she nominated my blogs for two awards. The fi
rst is the Lemonade Award:


This award is given to 10 others who show good attitude (the good kind!) or gratitude. Now, I haven't been on blogger long, but I do follow a few blogs. So I might not have 10 blogs to nominate, but I'm putting as many as I know!! (and these are in no particular order guys!)

1. The first is Aussie Therese with Aussie Coffee Shop. She's in Australia!

2. Next is Tracy with A Catholic Mom in Minnesota
.

3. Karen with Karen Edmisten. She is an author who writes/used to write for all sorts of websites and magazines.

4. Catholic Dads is a good one too. Even for us women!

5. Catholic Faith Education gives us a positive way
of approaching the education of our faith to the little ones.

6. Therese at Musings of a Mom (for that stay-at-home support!).

7. Mary's Prayer Garden is inspirational. Prayer should always be a part of our lives.

8. Secular Heretic with the News as it really is!


9. Jessica at Abundance of the Heart. More feel-good about being a mom!

... and last but certainly NOT least

10. Saint Therese is a beautiful site dedicated to Saint Therese. I LOVE learning about the saints.


I have a second award to deal with now, the Kreativ Blogger award. I'm going to tell you 6 things that I'm thankful for and then pass it on to 6 other bloggers (please don't be offended if you're not included in this list... we all have something special to share about our faiths).


I'm thankful for:

1. God's love.

2. My husband.

3. Three healthy children.

4. Being able to stay home and take care of everyone!

5. Family.

6. Friends.

There is lots to be thankful for and I wanted to make sure I got everything! Now, to pass this on to 6 other blogs:

1. The first is Aussie Therese with Aussie Coffee Shop. She's in Australia and her blog is wonderfully adorned with Catholic images and resources.

2. Next is Tracy with A Catholic Mom in Minnesota.

3. Therese at Musings of a Mom.

4.
Saint Therese is a beautiful site dedicated to Saint Therese.

5.
Jessica at Abundance of the Heart.

6.
Mary's Prayer Garden is inspirational. I love seeing pictures of our Holy Mother!

OK, I did it!! This took me a few days. It's been hard to get to the computer lately! This was fun though. Hope you all can visit some of these sites. I know I enjoy visiting. And don't forget to visit SaChay's site too. She is the one who nominated me in the first place.

Have a Blessed day!

You're welcome Therese! Keep doing what you're doing!
