Sharing the love!








Well, if you don't know who Stephanie is....then you must add her as a regular "go to" because my life is incomplete without her encouragement to me. She is just the BEST!!! And, she was instrumental for me as I prepared to speak at my church's womens retreat last weekend. So, I humbly say "thank you Steph" for giving me love and sharing the love through this darling award. Right back at you friend!!! May God continue to use you mightily in this world of blog friendship!




So, as I sit here on Tuesday afternoon and think of others who bless me through prayer and encouragement in this daily journey with Jesus.....I want to pass along to:




Bev!!!!!!




I think we can all agree that Bev is the ultimate encourager! She not only provides love and encouragement so individually she does so with the purest heart for Jesus! I love her dearly and CANNOT wait to see her in San Antonio in August. Won't we all just sob for hours when we get there?! Anyway.....




Bev, please accept this award for being a beautiful woman of God and sharing your love and His love in a way that brings complete joy to every single one of us that have the honor of knowing you!




Let's give her a hug and throw her some kisses now! She is most deserving. Bless you sweet friend. You are dear to us all.



Blessings~

Congrats on your award, you deserve it.

I agree with you about Bev being the encourager.

I am a new blogger and last week I was just going to quit blogging. I just couldn't see the point. God used Bev to speak to my heart...

She is truly a bright spot and I've only been here 2 + weeks.

Fran,
Thanks for stopping by and your response to me. I am so glad to have my new blogging friends! You all have welcomed me with open arms.

Have a blessed night.
Julie

I agree Fran. Bev is one of the greatest encouragers I've ever "met". She has so blessed me the short time we've been reading Cover to Cover...you are right up there too. I feel priveleged to be able to get to know both of you. Blessings on you for sharing your love of/for Him.....Blessings on your night and tomorrow...

Oh, I agree 100%... BEV ROCKS!!! You are quite encouraging too. :)

Bev Brandon said...

Fran, what strikes me about you is that my beautiful God seems to show up again and again through your
tender words to me,
timing of those tender words and
thoughtfulness towards all of us...
thank you from the bottom of my heart...
I'm humbled and sit here tonight in Benbrook bawling like a baby...what will happen when we meet? Oh dear, I will cry a river all over you...
You see, this week has been most difficult & this touches my heart that anyone would think I'm encouraging---it's not something people have usually said about me until I started blogging. That is new for me. I hope you guys don't change your mind when you meet me. I mean, IDK. Just want to say thank you to you, Fran, who deserves this award---this encourages me deeply in a most discouraging week. Love and Hugs and Kisses, Bev

You know how much I adore, Bev. She's a gem!

Abby said...

yes, perfect choice :D

Lindsee said...

Bev is so very loved. I love her so myself! Amazing.

And Fran, please tell me all was well with the plate?! The other one that was sent was cracked upon arrival. I was so mad!

Glad you got it, though!

Love ya!

You will not be disappointed when you meet Bev. I had the unbelievable privilege last Friday and she's just as beautiful in person! You are too, Fran, and not only have a lovable blog but a lovable YOU. We're going to have to get the "Let it Out" friend to come and pass out Kleenex at Siestaville. It's good online but it is one sweet thing to see the His face in another woman of Christ. Thanks Fran for saying so well often what I cannot. You love with words. Hugs, annie

I blog so you can get a glimpse into my life as wife, mom of 3 boys, and someone who simply wants to bless others along the way. Have fun and be sweet :)
