I am very honored!

I was humbled to receive this award from my fellow blogger, Lisa, who always inspires me to live out my faith with my family every day, especially during this Advent and Christmas season.
Marie and Ginny began this inspirational award, and I have included here what they wrote about it:
The Prince of Peace Award

For to us a Child is born, to us a Son is given; and the government shall be on His shoulder; and His name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
Isaiah 9:6

In a world that seems to thrive on war and violence, it is indeed a blessing to have bloggers who share their faith and love of God with others.
These blogs are passionate about their faith, are a voice for the voiceless, are sources of inspiration, hope and true kindness, they are an oasis where a weary spirit can stop for a while and rest and be refreshed.
Every act of love no matter how small is a work of peace and these bloggers go above and beyond the call to reach out to others. They bring The Prince of Peace to us; we enter as visitors and fellow bloggers and leave as friends.
At this time when we celebrate the birth of our Savior, we thank you, our friends, for all you do to make the spirit of the The Prince of Peace ever more present in our lives, not only at this time but everyday.
Please accept and share this Award with Christian bloggers who bring The Prince of Peace to others.
Love, Joy, Peace and Merry Christmas
I would to love to pass this on the fellow bloggers who are always an inspiration to me:
Charlotte at Waltzing Matilda
Rhonda at Alston Academy
Of course, there are many others-I wish I had time to add everyone to this list!

Aww Joann,

I'm not really worthy of such a wonderful award. But, I will humbly accept it. It was so sweet of you to think of me. All those other bloggers are so awesome. I don't know how I could bring any inspiration in comparison to them. But, like I said thank you. Now I'm going to take my award and run away with it:D

Oh Joann, this is such an honor. I just couldn't even imagine, me...inspiring you! I think that it should be the other way around hon. I so enjoy visiting your blog and with all of those kiddos that you have an everything that you do with and for them, you are truly a saint. I am sure that it is no easy feat with such a big family, but you make it seem so easy. Thank you so much for making my day complete.
