It’s been a while since seeing these awards make the circuit around WordPress, but Nanadoll of momtoldmetowriteabook nominated me for 3 awards (I think she was making things easier on herself, but hey, I’m not complaining!).
I’m not going to follow all the rules (like posting the awards in my side bar, too messy for a professional site ), but these things are a great way to let more people know about your favorite bloggers, so here goes:
I’m only going to bother passing on the Versatile Blogger Award, since most of these bloggers are guys. You are more than welcome to claim the “Sweet Blogger Award” or the “Shine on” award if they strike your fancy, though!
First I’m going to raid my “favorite creation bloggers” post and hand out awards to the whole bunch (who are still active). Remember, these are the bloggers who use “creation” in their tagline so often that I don’t bother passing their stuff along every Saturday because you should just follow them for yourself (and most of them already follow me, so I don’t get a big payback for mentioning them).
- Jacob Howard’s Already Answered. In case you missed this tidbit, he’s still in his teens, so be sure to join his fan club on the ground level!
- Birds of the Bible For Kids by Lee. I think it’s really great that she has a special section just for the young set. The grownup side of her site is cool too with tons of pictures.
- Grace with Salt is always posting something connected with creation from an official “apologist” (that means a person who knows how to describe and defend the Christian faith)
- Things I want my Grandchildren to Know by Weize Ann Wright is the only “women’s” blog I’ve started following in the last few months. I spotted her because she has a whole section on Creation. We’ve already arranged to live close to each other in heaven so we can catch up on things more quickly!
There are lots more Creation focus blogs on my Link tab, but most of them don’t post as often as would be nice.
Here are more general blogs I follow:
- Ernie’s Musings does mention creation occasionally (how could he not, since he works at ICR?), but he’s more likely to be “versatile” and talk about other aspects of following Jesus
- Bible-Science Guy has been talking mostly about hiking the land of Israel and connecting it to Bible accounts. I guess that falls under geography, so there you go!
- Pastor Erick Rhinstadt’s blog A Great God and Good Coffee. Not only does he comment regularly here, he even did the work to refollow my blog when WordPress threw his e-mail out somehow! Thanks, Pastor Erick.
- Irish Music, Oceans, and God’s Love gives a wonderful lift to my day whenever I read her and listen to the videos! She mentions creation occasionally, which is how I found her.
- If you haven’t run into hovercraftdoggy, you should check it out. Within a couple months of beginning my blog, they “liked” one of my posts and I had to see what kind of blog would have a name like that. I’ve taken to regularly scrolling through the awesome pictures they post with my husband as part of our wind-down time and have never been disappointed. Even more amazing is that two weeks ago they posted an old photo of the Mackinac (rhymes with awe) Bridge (at the tip of lower Michigan) and I was able to share where and what it was. Now they’re following my blog, which tells you something about them, doesn’t it?
- As a C.S. Lewis fan, I really enjoy following Mere Inkling. The only thing is, when I go to comment, I’ve got to pull out the dictionary to not embarrass myself! My spoken vocabulary is far greater than my spelling ability, and I can’t even blame the school system (or my mom, she tried)!
- These last two are some of my most faithful “like”rs and commenters. In return, I value their insights into God and godly living. These are the ones I only skip when I’m terribly busy! J.S. Park’s The Way Everlasting and Don Ruhl’s The Bible Meditator.
Not quite 15, but close enough! Now, for some trivia about me:
- Except for a year in South Carolina, I’ve always lived above the Mason/Dixon line. Sometimes WAY above…
- Namely, Anchorage, AK (a great place to be a kid) and Germany, which doesn’t feel far to the north, but it sure gets dark early at Christmas time!
- My parents consider experiences more important than stuff, so I’ve been to all 50 states and my husband took me to Washington D.C. so I can picture them all except…
- I’ve only visited California, Nevada, and the Grand Canyon as an infant, so I don’t remember them too well. Would love to do something about that, but it takes time and money!
- Geology was my favorite subject, and I always believed in Noah’s Flood, so I’ve spent hours picturing the Flood runoff while driving out west. For example,…
- I recognized the water level lines above Salt Lake City before hearing anything about the great post-Flood trapped lakes.
- Growing up, I gave my mom a hard time whenever she wanted me to do a written assignment. Why bother? I’d rather read a book than write one! Thank God, He’s given me a good reason to write now!
But encourage each other every day, while you still have something called “today.” Help each other so that none of you will be fooled by sin and become too hard to change. We have the honor of sharing in all that Christ has if we continue until the end to have the sure faith we had in the beginning. Hebrews 3:13,14 Easy-to-read Version
