Blog Connections

This weekend some of my new blogging friends encouraged me to play tag. I barely know how to operate this blog and now I'm going participate in this exercise. I have messed up parts of it but I must admit that this has connected me with some women that have already impacted my faith.

The beautiful young lady that began this process for me can be found at

You'll love her beautiful flowers and insightful content.

I also recommend you visit this blog that also "tagged me"

I pass on this info to any of you that want to "play."

My rules. Post something utterly daffy that you did as a child

Example: My cousin Carole and I loved playing together as children when we visited with one another. She had a horse on one visit that we loved riding together. Now I knew nothing about horses but what I'd seen in the movies. We decided to let me take the front position and Annie Oakley I became. Yipeee!! Suddenly Carole began yelling whoa, stop, oh no!!!! I didn't know what was wrong with her. She could see we were headed straight for the clothesline. I didn't have a clue anything was in front of us. She yanked the reins in time to bring the horse to a stop before the clothesline grabbed my throat.

3. Write 6 random things about yourself that others might not know about you.

Example of Kay

a. I love people....I find almost everyone has something to teach me I could never have known without being with them.

b. I adore crafts...getting messy and making a mess is irrelevant.

c. I have to work on being diligent with my daily routines. I prefer new challenges, but I love life when I am disciplined in doing the routines on time.

d. I love mystery stories & in my sixties I would still love to catch the crooks at their deeds and protect the innocent.

e. I hope one day I can write...right.

f. I still feel like I'm really only 11 years old in the child part of me; but I have lived 64 years. Take me to the playground!!!

If you don't blog, the next thing might not apply to you...hey, I'm still not sure how to play. Bless their hearts. they've sent me emails with instructions and I still don't get all the ends and outs. Let's have fun with what we can do, right?

4. Tag six people at the end of your post and link to them. Let each person know they've been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog

Example This is a lovely insightful blog. Dorothy is beautiful and so are her life changing posts. Nicki will light up your life and bless you with truth. Angela refreshes everyone who drops by her wonderful blog. Her joy is contagious. Tracy will bring you truth of Scripture, beautiful pictures and hope. You'll find lovely pictures and life filled words on this blog in Australia. Starr has become a friend since She Speaks. We bumped into one another on our way to a workshop and I found her as delightful as her blog.

Can't wait to read these posts and discover some things about the readers of this blog.

This is beginning to be fun. 64 and still playing tag!!! I love it .... sounds like thriving to me.

Hi Kay!
I'm humbled by your very kind comments. I was excited to be reminded of how much I enjoy your blog. This morning, I've read several of your posts...EACH of WHICH spoke to my heart. (Thank you!) I’m especially grateful for the link to my blog. I SO enjoy meeting new friends (particularly faith friends!)

You know what I find especially interesting? I've never been "tagged" before, and within a range of just a few hours, I've been tagged in the same “game” by you (who transparently shared your age of 64) and also my Katlynn (an awesome Christian high school student)…I ask you, where else but Blog world could a 64 year old, a 42 year old and a teen play tag together!?! (How I LOVE that!)

God is definitely using this amazing avenue and it’s incredibly exciting to be a part of it in some tiny way.

Have a blessed week!

I see you are learning quickly. Isn't this FUN! I must admit when I was first "tagged", the instructions were not that clear tome either (I'm 42 and beginning to decline mentally! Ha! Ha!) When my husband explained (one of his spiritual gifts is teaching) it to me, it made perfect sense!

Great job on your blog. I am working my way through your previous posts. I'll be back.

Hi Kay!
I wasn't on my computer yesterday so didn't know until tonight that you had "tagged" me. Another friend, Lee, tagged me also. So I have written my "random things" about myself on my blogpost tonight:

You have been such a blessing and encouragement to me!

Thrive In Christ

Who I Am In Christ by Neil Anderson

For several months we will center on this book to pursue Thriving in our Christian journey.

Neil challenges us with: "Do you know who you are in God's eyes? We are no longer products of our past. We are primarily products of Christ's work on the cross. Who we are determines what we do.

You are not who you are in Christ because of the things you have done, you are in Christ because of what He has done. He died and rose again so that you and I could live in the FREEDOM of His love."

That's just the introduction. More to follow.
