Encounters with myself … others … Life !

One lovely blog award nomination…


Thank you sunshine girl aka Send Sunshine for nominating me for one lovely blog award.  You too are a hard act to follow with your daily doses of sunshine.

Here are the seven more facts about myself ….(lots of self revelation these days 🙂  !)

  1. I celebrated my grand six oh with my twin with a beautiful thanksgiving mass and fellowship this Friday past: 3rd Oct “D day” we entered the universe six minutes apart.
  2. I used to have a ‘thing’ about proclaiming my age.  Now .. it is only a number to me: Am happy to add up the numbers which means more life .. more grace!
  3. I love music and can dance anywhere, anytime  – whether alone or in company.  I picked up this freedom of spirit from Jamaica  (Not always advisable in Sri Lanka …)
  4. One of my favourite pastimes is to lie in the shade of a tree – to sleep or read a book.  Next choice a hammock – also under a tree.  Writing and blogging is fast ousting this from top of the list.
  5.  I would love to travel some more –  Mexico, Graceland, Northern Lights, Africa and China are on the list:  and to Spain, Rome  and Israel (again!)
  6.  Outlook – my twin says I swim upstream when everyone else is  swimming downstream. Have not yet decided yet whether this is good or bad. Shouldn’t you check where the water is coming from before you go with the flow? Or is it unnecessary?  An interesting analogy I might need to check out.   Meantime  I remain  a ‘weird fish’ (her words.)
  7. Encompassing all these …. just as the Rose follows the sun, so too do I wish to follow The Son and take my bearings only from HIm.

I would like to nominate the following in a spirit of sharing  – and because they have really inspired me  in the ways mentioned. I have seen where some do not accept awards on principle. If you are one of those ..please do not take the nomination amiss;  just know that I sincerely appreciate the thoughts that you put out on the ‘noosphere’ that have inspired me.

And to all those who visit my blog …  hope you find some little something that made your visit worthwhile.   Thank you for stopping by.

  4. Nominate around 15 other bloggers and let them know about the award –

    Thank you, Rambling Rose. It’s wonderfully cheering to receive such a compliment from a sister-in-Christ whose own blog is truly lovely. I hope it is not too irreverent to (mis)quote St. Paul’s exhortation in Philippians 3:14 and ask you to “[Word]press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus!”

      …not irreverent… inspired context … and very welcome encouragement from one sister to another! Thank you and I will (word)press 🙂 on to our goal in Christ.
