Blessings

Swissmiss sent me a blessing. How very thoughtful of her.

"The idea… it’s a game of tag with a difference, rather than looking inwardly, we look outside ourselves and bless, praise and pray for one blog friend. By participating in this endeavour we not only make the recipient of the blessing feel valued and appreciated, but we are having some fun too. We’re going to see how far the bloggin’ blessings can travel around the world and how many people can be blessed! Recipients of a bloggin’ blessing may upload the above image to their sidebar if they choose to. If you recieve a bloggin’ blessin’ please leave a comment on this thread here so that we can rejoice in just how many blessings have been sent around the world!"

May God bless:

Cathy for providing us all with an inspiring example of unwavering faith via her brilliant writing and humor.
Ray for his excellent reporting and volunteer work for the Church.


A Prayer for Cathy and Ray:

May the blessing of almighty God, of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, come down upon you and remain with you forever. Amen.

"and that’s it, nearly…

So, all these three have have to do is to;

a) Bless 3 blog buddies each.
b) Include the ‘God Bless you’ image in their post.
c) Explain briefly why they are blessing the people they are blessing.
d) Pray/include in the post the prayer for the recipients of the blessing.
e) The recipient/sender of a blessing should type in the com box of Deb's original post that a blessing has been sent to them so we can keep track of how many blessings are being given. For easy reference a link to this post will make it into Deb's sidebar.

Sounds a bit confusing, I know. But it could be fun, we’ll soon see!

Thanks for playing along!

The larger ‘God Bless you’ image can also be sent as an E-Card from Deb's Credo Christian E-Cards website.

God Bless you!"

Is it OK if I call them Pa and Ma, now that we're related, instead of Terry and Cathy? Or should I just refer to them as "My Old Man" and "My Old Lady?"

I can remember the year when I bought cozy hats like My Old Lady's for my two sisters for Christmas. In fact I borrowed one myself one night when it was very cold and I had to go down and help shovel my brother's car out of a ditch.
