Our dear and gentle friend Kathy at Moving on to the Past has chosen five of her favorite blogs for a Liebster Award, which is designated for those blogs with 200 or less followers. I, in turn, award a Liebster to her blog where she shares with her readers her daily activities of homesteading at its finest. Don't read this blog when you're hungry. Kathy and her husband Bob are always turning out something delicious from their own-grown bounty. My kind of next-door neighbors.
Since the intention of the award is try to bring notice to up and coming bloggers, I have limited my other four choices to those I know have fewer than 200 followers. They are:
Caroline at the Bell of the Wanderer, a brave and gentle presence who gives witness to Christ in all things.
Patricia at I Want to See God, whose love for Our Lord spills over into some of the most beautiful prose and prayer you might find on the blogosphere.
Daniel at Through Vocation for the glimpses he shares with us of life in the seminary and for the opportunity for all of us to pray and connect with a priest in the making.
Theresa at Carmelitemom for her honest, moving and beautiful accounts of simple every day life dedicated to God in the Carmelite tradition.
One of the things I dislike about awards is that it's not possible to recognize all my favorites, so again, I limited this to those I know have 200 or few followers and to those who blog on a regular basis. I had my druthers, I'd have included Linen on the Hedgerow even though I think Richard's following is quickly going to surpass Father Z. Our favorite Mom for Life, Kelly, was one of my very first followers and a dear friend both on the blogosphere and in "real life". Terry Nelson was the first major blogger to link to The Little Way. I still have a hard time knowing when he's joking and when he's serious, but so long as Terry knows the difference, it's all good. There are so many others and please forgive me for not having the synapses firing adequately to remember you all.
Thank you dear friends and God bless us all.
