nice surprise

I noticed today that I was getting a lot of visitors from a site I'm not familiar with. When I followed the link, I learned why. Wind Scraps has been nominated in three categories for the 2005 "Blogs of Beauty" award:

   --Best Biblical Exhortation (Does the best job of bringing biblical truth and exhorting others to walk closely with the Lord Jesus);
   --Best Encourager (Has the most encouraging blog content); and

   --Best Design - Contemporary
(The most beautiful blog of a contemporary design). Of the three, I am a finalist in that last category.

To whoever nominated my blog in those categories--thank you! I am honored. If any of you care to vote, please go to Sallie's Two Talent Living and follow her instructions.

Yay Shannon!

Yours is one of my must read blogs, so I nominated you in Best Encourager. I don't know who the other nominators were...but congratulations...you deserve an award for your work here!

Christie! Thank you so much for the nomination. I didn't even know such an award existed. That was a very nice surprise. :)

I found your site as a result of the beauty awards and I have thoroughly enjoyed reading your blogs. Your mouse story had me in stitches. We lived in trailer for 3 years and I can COMPLETELY relate to that story.

Wow, I didn't know such a site existed either... But if anyone deserves it, you do Shannon! Your writing has a beauty in it that stands out,both in what you say and in your "way with words." You make us see and feel right along with you, and touch our hearts with warmth and humor along the way... a desire I have to do in my own writing.

Thank you, Susan :)

Mandi, I'm sure you can relate. Mice love trailers and mobile homes, don't they?

Pam, you are such an encourager. Thank you. :)
