Sunshine Award

I was truly honored and moved by Flameheart’s very kind words and nomination of my blog for the Sunshine Award.
The Fire in my Eyes is Heart’s blog, and it is full of well written articles, interesting photos, music, poems, quotes, and lots of art. Definitely check out this inspiring blog when you get a chance!

Here is the award :)

The award comes with some rules, and here they are…


  1. Thank the person who gave you the award and link back to them.
  2. Tell us something about yourself.
  3. Nominate 5-10 other bloggers.
  4. And let them know you awarded them!

So, I am supposed to tell you all something about myself…
I can wiggle my middle toe on each foot without any other toe moving, impressive right? I have a pet hedgehog, and absolutely love chocolate (especially dark chocolate).
You can read all about what I believe in my blog. However, I do have a deep dark secret…I used to find the Bible deathly boring, even though I believed in God and called myself a Christian. I realized that there were so many passages in the Bible that I didn’t really understand and there were even things that seemed to contradict themselves, never mind trying to reconcile the differences between what science proves and what I thought I believed. I desperately needed understanding.

“The unfolding of your words gives light; it give understanding to the simple.” ~Psalm 119:130

Without understanding we cannot truly obey, and if we cannot obey, that means we cannot truly love God, His word, and the one He sent (Jn 14:23).

I love sharing the good things in life, so here are some blogs I would like to share some sunshine with:

I would really encourage everyone to visit these blogs and have a look around. All of them have inspired me with their amazing talents, their passion for what they do and believe, and how they are so willing to serve others. I am honored to be surrounded by such wonderful people.

Happy Summer, enjoy the sunshine!

  1. Hi Healingleaf,

    Thank you very much. I am very happy that you pick me as one of your nominees. I am honestly thankful for the thoughtfulness.

    I had my list too which i just uploaded an hour ago and you are one of my Sunshine awardees.

    I always love to read you posts because they are full of insights and wisdom. They are inspiring and i appreciate it every time your posts remind me about God’s unconditional love to us. It is indeed a healing leaf everyday.

    Congrats and keep in touch

    • Hi Earlie, I can honestly say that I am so glad to have met you and found such a wonderful friend through the blogging world :)
      Thank you for awarding me as well and for your very kind words!

      We will definitely keep in touch!

  2. Just wanted to say thanks for your kind words of appreciation. As I said to Earlie, it’s great to spread some sunshine around. The world needs happiness and I think awards give bloggers a degree of confidence to keep writing and, may achieve one of the basic displays of happiness: a smile (which is the most rewarding!)

    I will have a look at the blogs in your list soon.

    There really is an honesty and goodness to your blog. Thank you for sharing Christianity and genuine views on biblical topics. Even though I’m not entirely converted one way or the other, I enjoy reading and thinking about the topics you write about.
    Have a great weekend!

    • Oh, Thank YOU Heart! I really did smile when you told me about the award, so sweet of you! And it is a little bit of blogging fun :) I enjoyed the opportunity to pass on some sunshine to others!
      I know you are not really convinced one way or another concerning your beliefs, but I am always happy to have you visit, and please know that if you ever have questions my door is always open.
      Hope you have a great weekend too :)

  3. Hi HL,
