She's So Artistic

In all humility, I don't think I am so artistic, but LJ and Fran seem to think so, and so they have honored me with a prestigious award. But with privileges also comes responsibility, so I need to post and follow these rules as well.

Here are the rules:
1) Pick five blogs that you consider deserve this award for their creativity, design, interesting material, and also for contributing to the blogging community, no matter what language.
2) Each award has to have the name of the author and also a link to his or her blog to be visited by everyone.
3) Each award winner has to show the award and put the name and link to the blog that has given her or him the award itself.
4) Award-winner and the one who has given the prize have to show the link of Arte Y Pico blog, so everyone will know the origin of this award which is here: Arte Y Pico.

Here are the blogs I would like to honor:

1. Barbara, at Views From the Road, has incredibly funny, interactive, thoughtful posts and great blog design. There's always something new I can learn from her!

2. Freshly Ground Lutheran is an artist as well as a pastor. You can see her art on her blog. You can also see pictures of her dog (which is a plus as well). Also, her reflections are honest wrestlings of a serious Christian.

3. Heart of a Pastor just moved over to wordpress, something that impresses me greatly. Also, his blog looks better than ever, and is as thoughtful as ever.

4. Still Fruity. Lindy's posts are thoughtful, her photos of Rowan are the best ever, and her sidebars are about the most fun and informative anywhere!

5. Singing Owl. Serious Pentecostal theology in living beautiful color. Highly recommended.

Now -- pass it on, everybody!

Diane - you have a great talent, many talents and you are deeply generous, what a beautiful spirit.

That is why you are so "arte y pico" to me1

Thank you for the award and the kind words.

Congratulations. Can you hear the applause from nearly 400 miles away?

Singing Owl said...

Well, bless your dear little heart, as my Texaz mama used to say. Seriously. I'll do this when I get a chance to be a little thoughtful about it.

((((Diane)))) I hope my next trip to your neighborhood will be a little longer so we can meet up for some conversation.

Pastor Eric said...

I am working on my awards presentation post and will have that posted in a day or two. Thanks again.
