In the Darkness the Blogging Stars Shine

A long time ago my good blog friend Fran presented me with a coveted blogging star award. I didn't do anything with it then except thank her very much The truth is, I would like to give every blog I visit a blogging star! I didn't want to choose, so I kept putting it off.

But I felt guilty. And I have been thinking about this for a long time. So, from a long line of worthy blogs, here are some stars:

1. Beth's Photo Journal. Beth is a young woman who is taking a year to chronicle her life with pictures and commentary. She's a great photographer and an insightful writer. I enjoy her travels.

2. Proclaiming Softly. She has a great perspective on faith, worship, life in a small town, and social issues. Plus, she just got back from Africa. I especially liked her post recently on imagining the world as 100 people

3. Presbyterian Gal. She makes me laugh, she makes me cry, she makes me think. What more can I say?

4. Rowan the Dog. I love lots of dogs (and you can see just a few others, including Grendel) on my blog roll. But Rowan is not just a dog, he is a hero. He is also a great theologian. (I hope he updates his blog soon!)

5. Heart of a Pastor. Pastor Eric serves in the small town in which my mother grew up. I was looking around on the "net" one Saturday night and ran into his blog. He really does have the "heart of a pastor."

There are lots more "stars" in the heavens... some I am just starting to discover.

Thanks for being a light!

Wow. Thank you very much for the honor. And in such great company.

I hope you and Scout are feeling a lot better today.

Wow, thanks!

Oh Diane, look at you. I love this post and the directions you have sent us in, but I want to embrace you and say "no guilt, no guilt!"

And a Catholic with Jewish roots, oy vey do I know from the guilt already.

You are a star in my blogworld every day!

A very nice list of stars. Bravo to all!

Rowan The Dog said...

Dear Diane,

Thank you for giving me this very great and wonderful blog honor. I am sure a lucky dog to have blog friends like you and Scout, I'll tell you what.

I want you to know that I have been woofing at my guardian to let me have some computer time for awhile now. It's very hard with her because she doesn't understand how important my blogging is and how many people depend on me to woof them some encouragement and remind them that the Big Dog really does like them a lot and that he wants to snuggle up with them and give them a nuzzle.

Me and my guardian are real busy with our jobs and everything but I am going to get a post up for you this week.

Rowan, I know that you and Lindy are both real busy being heroes and everything. Looking forward to more insights from BOTH of you.

Pastor Eric said...

Thank you so much for such a high honor. I am very thankful that we have crossed paths and I truly enjoy reading your insights as well.
