Meme Tagged Me
The loving and faithful mom that has been rebuilding after Hurricane Ike, Beverly at has tagged me for a Meme. I feel so honored for her to include me in her tagged blogging friends!

***First of all, To All of our Blogging Friends, Please be in Prayer for Beverly and all of the other victims of Hurricane Ike that are still trying to pull their homes back together! They have strength like I have never seen. Only through faith and prayers can they get through this.
I loved all her responses on how blogging has affected her life and will now try and come up with my own original ones and ignore the tendency to copy hers!

Here are the rules:
1. Write about 5 specific ways blogging has affected you, either positively or negatively.
2. Link back to the person who tagged you
3. Link back to this parent post
4. Tag a few friends or five, or none at all
5. Post these rules— or just have fun breaking them

1. Faith~ The greatest gift that blogging has brought to me is my growth in my Faith! I have met some of the most incredible women through blogging! Everyday I am able to grow stronger through God's word in watching how God is using me or someone else in His ministry. I find myself sitting here saying, "Praise God", or either praying for someone that I have not even met. So many of these women I have developed a sisterly love with because of our shared love of Christ and strong Faith! Only God can do that! I am blessed daily by these women and that leads me to the next way that blogging has affected me...
2. Friends~ I know these girls are praying for me and with me, laughing with me and thinking about me! What more can I say! I just wished they lived closer so that I could meet them... but if they did would we still have that close bond?
I truly have developed a kindred spirit with some of these girls and I know I can say I love them!
3. Redecorating Diva~ All of the pictures of the ladies homes has encouraged me to redecorate certain rooms in my home! I love the little vignettes that the ladies create and the softness of the shabby chic. Since my children are away at college, I am in a major throw away phase of life! Pantry's Beware!
4. Creativity~ I love sharing my artistic side with everyone and I love going to everyone's blog to see what they are working on! I have certain artist that inspire me with their work and their homes!
5. Love of Writing~ I have always had a love of writing. This gives me an outlet to write and teach others about what I enjoy doing! I also love throwing in little love notes for my husband to read (I know that he sneaks a peek every once in a while at my blog)! Dawn is one of my favorite artist. I love to watch her work on her home and her art. She has so many great ideas! Sherry's blog is so great! Just looking at the pictures you are filled with ideas. Witty, creative & just plain ole sweet. Always shares her faith and makes me think. I have fell in love with Kathy and can't wait to meet her! Jamie is a wonderful friend who worked on my CopperTone Blog. You will love her creativity and faith! She has a wonderful blog and a very interesting writer. I love to see what she has to say! Cathy is also a great artist!
All of these girls have inspired me in some way. With their creativity, writings, or their love of life! All I know is God has sent each one to me for a reason and treasure their gift!
