Awesome Blogger Award Challenge ~Accepted

Thank you, Stu!https://stubaby777.wordpress.com/


Here are the rules:
– Thank the blogger who nominated you.
– Tag your post with #awesomebloggeraward.
– Answer the questions given to you.
– Nominate and inform at least 5 bloggers.
– Give them 10 new questions to answer.

1. Why do you think more and more young people are living together instead of getting married?

Society has helped with that.

I think there is a loss of our godly culture. Nothing is sacred anymore.

2. If a homeless person walked into a church on a Sunday morning, how do you feel the congregation would react?

Welcome them right in. My church shows no bias.

3. Do you believe the church is doing enough in your community?


4. You are angry at your spouse for something they have done. How long do you hold onto that anger, regardless of the infraction?

Minutes, because a little thing should not change your love for them.

5. Share your honest thoughts on this verse…

And Isaac brought her into his mother Sarah’s tent, and took Rebekah, and she became his wife; and he loved her: and Isaac was comforted after his mother’s death.
Genesis 24:67 KJV

I think that shows we all are vulnerable when it comes to our selfish nature. Tragedy can bring out the part of us that thinks not, before we act.

6. Now, upon reflecting on that verse…is one considered your spouse… before or after sex?

Regardless of sex. Whether or whether not.

A commitment of marriage is do much more than sex.

She was a good person, despite her life and horrible treatment.

Cat In The Window Challenge accepted.


This is one of my oldest cats, Inky. He was found as a baby kitten, hiding on my back porch, under our grill.

I took him in and have loved him ever since. He is my ”black boy” full of love. He was enjoying a rest on my couch this morning. He usually stays on my screened in back porch.

I adore him. I think everyone should own a cat like Inky. He is beautiful and so sweet, almost black cats are.

My dog thinks he is ”purrfect”too.


Liebster Award, nomination

Liebster Award was given to me from my writer pal, https://pensitivity101.wordpress.com/ .

Thank you so much! It has been a while since I was nominated for this award.

The (slightly modified) rules:

5 – Nominate 2 – 6 blogs that you feel would enjoy receiving the award.

6 – Create 5 questions for your nominees.

I was given these questions!

OK, now for my five questions (anyone else is welcome to answer them too. Pls link back to this post so that I can read them!).

  1.  If you could be a World Leader (living or dead), who would it be and why?
  2.  You have the choice of
    a) living on your own island,
    b) the house of your dreams in the country, or
    c) a luxury penthouse apartment in the city.
    Which would you choose?
  3. If you could turn back the clock and change something in your life, how far back would you go and what would it be?
  4. You hate your life and due to a technical glitch, you suddenly find yourself rich and famous with a new identity. What would be the first thing you’d do?
  5. You’ve been asked to form a new pop group. From today’s artists, who would you choose for your lead singer and who else for backing vocals?

SO here are my answers

  1. https://wordpress.com/read/feeds/14846827I would be Abraham Lincoln if given a choice of a world leader. I believe he impacted the world for generations and generations and his work as President was irrefutable and helped all of us in one way, shape or form. He died too early, I wish I could of seen the amazing things he could had accomplished, if he had lived.
  2. I would love to live on my own island, free from others scrutiny. I would live in harmony with all that nature had to give oor show me while there. I would invite my closest friends and family to join me.
  3. Age 21. I would do things a little different. I actually had part of my life that had been missing come into my life. I would however, want myself to take necessary time to heal wounds and determine a plan of action before introducing stressful people and situations into my life. I found my birth family, so to speak. Life was a chaotic time for me, trying to hide this revelation from my adopted family and trying to deal with it all. I was not prepared as i wish I had been.
  4. The first thing, would be to open a shelter for homeless animals, and people. I think a place set up to have both would be great. People would love the pets and feel like kindred souls with the animals that were homeless. They could comfort each other and they could help run the shelter and have a place to live and thrive, both groups. If only!
  5. https://pvcann.com / http://thepoetryofthingsdotblog.wordpress.com http://tonyburgess1969.net/

I am going to stay with the questions Pensitivity101 left for me.

You can choose to accept or decline or pass on to someone. Thanks

Henry(short story by MwsR <3)


A penny for your thought, or make a long story short? Seems like a piece of cake, right? Well, maybe not.

Henry’s teacher was asking the class to write about their feelings on the Holidays, or at least something pertaining to the holidays. Henry was struggling on what or how to go about writing. He was basically, sitting on the fence and did not want to decided.

For Henry, Holidays were not that great. He had thought of putting the wool over someone’s eyes and making a story of the best Holiday ever but he was not sure if he could get away with it. Because he had never really enjoyed the Holidays, since his mom passed away on Thanksgiving day, he was certain that he could not even “milk it” for one second. His hurt had been so deep that his “heart-felt like it would burst” Perhaps the teacher would give him the benefit of a doubt, but he was afraid to risk it.

As Henry walked home he tried desperately to think of a way to get out of doing that Holiday paper. It was possible that whoever read what he wrote would also be able to READ him to fifth degree. He was not going to be able to fool anyone it appeared so he might as well “hop to it”. He was simply going to shoot for the stars.  After all what else could he loose. He had done lost his mother, the one person who meant the world to him. Perhaps, it wasn’t bad to write a paper that might honor that, honor her memory in his own He was going to write and write his paper as sickening, as he could!

When Henry arrived home, he sat down at his desk and started to remember all the things about his mother that he loved. He let himself remember all the holidays when she and him were together. It is like the words just started to flow onto the paper. When he paused, he noticed he had written the most he had ever wrote, he had three whole pages. He asked his brother to look over his paper and proofread it. He then packed it into his notebook, proud of his accomplishment.

The next day at school when others were being asked to go to the front of the class and read off their papers, he volunteered which was a total shock to his teacher. She nodded at him with a rather wide smile as he approached the front. His paper’s title was. “Holidays My Mom Gave Me”. He read all three pages and when he was finished you could hear  pin drop. Henry was about to take his seat when the children started clapping and some of the children were wiping tears away from their eyes. It was great. Henry had never been so proud of himself in all his life. He knew his mother was too.

After all Holidays are more than trimmings and things under the tree, they are about those we love and care about and what that means.
