Rockin' Bloggers and the Muppets

Awww, how sweet is this?
Those of you who have been reading here for awhile know my son Joshua and I have a game we play in which we tell each other "You rock!" This is how the game goes: One says, "You rock!" The other says, "No. You rock!" The first says, "You rock more than me." The second finishes off by saying, "You rock more than I ever will!" We stick pretty closely to that script and I love playing it with him.
Well, now I've had two blogging friends tell me they think I rock. Annie and Leigh both passed on the Rockin' Girl Blogger award to me.


I love this award, not just because of the game Joshua and I play, and not just because hot pink is one of my favorite colors, but because I'm encouraged to know the things I share here are benefiting others.
I know two friends to whom I would like to pass on this award:
Coach Jenny - because I love your heart and passion for God.
Char - because I love your honesty and you make me laugh.

If you've been with me for awhile you may also recall my disdain for Pokemon videos on Friday nights. I am so happy to report the kids have seen all the Pokemon movies in the video store and last night we watched The Muppet Show! Sing with me now: It's time to start the music. It's time to light the lights. It's time to meet the Muppets on the Muppet Show tonight. (Bum, bum, bum) It's time to put on makeup. It's time to dress up right. It's time to get things started...on the most sensational, inspirational, celebrational, muppetational, this is what we call The Muppet Show!
The DVD had three Muppet Show episodes on it and I thoroughly enjoyed all of them. What really pleased me is the fact my kids liked it, too. It's really a simple show - music and singing, corny jokes, and a few explosions. The boys especially liked when Gonzo blows his horn at the end of the theme song and something strange comes out of his horn or explodes. I am partial to the corny jokes. And I'm looking forward to our next movie night when we get another Muppet Show DVD. Ahhh, PacMan and the Muppets. It's fun to re-live my childhood every now and then!

One more thing before I go...This week at VBS I had the privilege of praying with one young girl to receive Jesus! Hooray!!!

Oh wow! I can't believe that little ol me got a Rockin' blogger award! Me? Really? You've blown my socks off! Thanks! I'm so honored. Really! Wooo hooooo! You just brightened my sad Sunday. My hubby left for Dundee today... so I've been tripping over my bottom lip for the last hour or so. :o(

Yay! Who'd a thunk a blogging award could make me so happy? Thanks!

And P.S. All praise to God who brought that little girl on your path and allowed you to participate in her Saving experience! It's just SO like God to share the fun isn't it?

getting out of this unbelief is what my last 2 moves are all about... i want to enter into the promised land - i want more than just my toes to be wet - I want to be soak with the Holy water of His pleasure!!!

If none of that makes sense - do the study Believing God and quick!!

Love you and thanks!
