Deepest gratitude to Robert at Watching Daily at Wisdom’s Gates for the nomination. Awards are not something I pursue, but it is always lovely to be thought of and this is another one I honestly appreciate as worthwhile. ☺️
So…here we go:
Rules of the #ShareYourPassion Tag:
- Repost the #ShareYourPassion logo (above) on your acceptance post.
- Tag the blogger’s site that nominated you.
- Share a bit about your passion(s): Hobbies outside of blogging that keep you busy in your free time. What would you like to accomplish with these things? How could you use your passion(s) to be a blessing to others and show them the love of God?
- Nominate ten other bloggers and spread the joy!
Well…free time, first of all, varies a great deal day to day.
My first passion, naturally, is Christ, followed by my husband and children. This tends to keep me busy a lot.
And, of course, writing is a given.😊 Try as I might to run from it, it will not let me be!
I have learned over the years the way just sharing sheer testimony and doodles on Christian life can move people in their faith and remind them of the everlasting hope in Jesus.
And, speaking of doodles…I also love to draw and paint.
I have yet to fully pinpoint what God has in mind for my rather unusual style, but I try to remain open to His leading.
And to add to the creativity I tend to thrive in, I am a baker as well.
(Psst. This even somewhat inspired the first part of the really long title of my memoir a few years back:
Broken Cookies Taste Just as Sweet: The Amazing Grace of Motherhood, Marriage, and Miracles on The Spectrum. I think it’s still on Amazon for anyone interested. 😏)
Now, unlike my art, I have gotten to see how making cookies makes a difference for Christ, even if it doesn’t necessarily feel like traditional evangelism at times.
Feeding our youth group has filled both a basic need for food and the deeper need of knowing someone cares. From there, the door opens to share the love of God, which is one of my deepest passions of all.
Ok. Guess that about sums it up.
I could also get into my love of antiques, classic films and TV, swing and classic rock, but I don’t want to ramble too long.😊
I think I am getting to know a few more people this time, so let’s see about some nominating. Absolutely no pressure. If this is your type of thing and you feel inspired, go for it. If not, no biggie! Just know that each of you have blessed me through your posts and I felt like God was directing me to give you a shout out ☺️:
