feelin' the love......


I was loved on twice yesterday by two fellow bloggers. First, I received this awesome homemade citrus soap in the mail from Brandy, a gift to celebrate the opening of her new online Etsy shop. She trepidly contacted me to ask for my mailing address last week, not sure if I would give it to her. I assured her that I didn't mind, and that if I were to have a stalker, who better to have than a knitting, baking, soap-making mama who sends me free things in the mail. :) I encourage you to check her new shop out.... she has soap, cloth napkins, seeds, reusable bags, and felted goodies, with more to come. All are handmade.

Then, to add to the beauty of my day, I was contacted by L.L. Barkat, letting me know she put up this post about me. I clicked over and was moved to tears and extremely humbled by it. If that is all that ever came from my music, it would be enough.

So much love from this little blogging community of mine.... I never would have dreamt it when I put up my first post a little over a year and a half ago. Thank you, ladies... and thank ALL of you who have come into my life and moved me and encouraged me time and time again.

See, it's like this... when we use our God-given gifts, the world is blessed. You bless me. :) (And btw, my Littlest must listen to you at least twice a day. She'd listen more if she had her way!)

Glad you're enjoying your blogging. To me working with ideas and truth as revealed in Jesus is important, and so is the fellowship with others. It's fun.

I did post on L.L.'s book today, as I am doing so on Wednesdays, lately. It is a wonderful book. I have to think that maybe you should write one as well. And release a CD as well.

I'm often in awe of the love that's passed around in the blogging world. You share so much of yourself. It's natural that it will come back to you.

l.l.- so true about using our god-given gifts. and so many of us try to fit into a mold or do things that we aren't gifted in, just because we think that's what we 'should' do or are pressured to do. the church can be guilty of that sometimes, putting someone in a role that they are not meant to be in..... or even perhaps stifling their true giftings. i hope art and music DO become more prevalent in the church, just as it was in the middle ages. but again, thank you. music is as natural as breathing to me, as i am sure writing is for you.

ted- thank you for stopping by. l.l.'s book is on its way to me and i can't wait to read it. and a cd or book? hmmm..... maybe someday. :)

theresa- yes, there is a lot of love shared out here in cyberland..... amazing, really. glad we're starting to move in the same circles. :)

You are a blessing! I too am thankful for the friends I've made blogging. I never expected it, and it has been such a sweet thing. I'm so glad to have 'met' you!
