How Sweet!

My sweet friend LISA from A Place To Land has been so gracious as to give me this award. Please go on over and check out her site. You will love it! I feel truly undeserving *blush* as I haven't been fulfilling the title of "blogger" lately. I hope to get back on track shortly. There has been so much going on, and yet, I haven't been able to blog about most of it. Maybe I can see my way past and reflect on the positive and have something to share. *smile* I have also meant to set up a different page for these, but true to my procrastinating self, I haven't gotten around to it. And as always, if you are reading my blog, I probably read yours, so in light of that matter, I award each one of my friends that are reading.......

May I Have Your Attention, Please?

Before I begin, I would like to say that I LOVE my bloggy friends. You are the greatest. I enjoy "visiting" you and following up with what is going on in your lives. I haven't always had time to comment---especially lately, but I still try to pop in and out. I want to thank each and everyone that have prayed for me and my dad. He is doing fantastic. He was in rehab (physical therapy) until this past Thursday. He had some problems with strengthing his legs after surgery but is doing so much better. He shared with me something amazing and as soon as I can get him to repeat it to me in detail, I plan to post about it. It is awesome!!

I have never wanted to offend anyone with anything that I may post on my blog or live in "real life". (and neither do I now) I ordinarily try to stay away from topics that promote debate or could lead to contention. In fact, I have often tossed around what to post about and what NOT to post about and then......

I had a revelation! THIS IS MY BLOG!

I have declared this from day one by my choice of title, MY Spot of blog. This gives me the freedom to post about ANYTHING I want to. It can be about my Savior, children, home, hobbies, shopping adventures, recipes, get the picture...... :)

I have decided that regardless of what I may say, everyone may not agree with me. I have also decided this is okay seeing as to how I have been from blog to blog and read things that have left me scratching my head wondering how in the world they could think this or that. I know my options are clear if I don't like what I read. (I think we all know the unwritten rules of the bloggy world.)

If there is one feature I like about the comments or email, we can delete it if we don't like the critique or the fear of being humiliated by someone that goes off half cocked. I usually don't have this problem, but I know of some that do. But what do you do if your actions are called into public attention and you have no control over the criticism and ugly comments that are written about something you did hoping to promote positive feedback? Such as the case HERE. I don't attend this church nor have I ever met the pastor, but I have read of previous efforts of his church to spread the gospel and it also involved giving to the community. I applaud them, but not everyone feels the same. He was attacked for not giving this money to another cause. Can you believe this? Well, I know this is now the way of the world, and I also realize Jesus was ridiculed for the good He did, but I still have a hard time accepting it. I did not want to promote the hateful spirit of the letters written in protest of this event so I will not post or link to them. I choose to believe the church's intentions were pure. I also know that regardless of what we do, everyone will not like it!
