What makes you happy?

One of the blessings of blogging is the many new friends I have made in the last few months. We chat about the things which are important to us or just interesting, and encourage one another in our writing and in our walk with God. The greatest gift has been those who uphold me in prayer, and whose prayer requests have in turn, been shared with me.

One dear friend,
Raymonde from Every Day I Walk With You

has generously awarded some of her blogging friends a Happy 101 award. I am one of the blessed ones to have received the honor of being her friend and award recipient. Raymond loves life and uses her God given gift of photography to capture the beauty of God's world around her London home and abroad. She has made a list of ten things she loves, and encourages me to do the same. So here goes:

1    The Lord Jesus and His Word
2    My beautiful family
3    Reading
4    Writing
5    Researching history
6    Rain
7    Baking
8    Massages
9    Hugging Babies
10  Antique Shops

Thanks Raymonde for encouraging me to draw the curtain back on my little world here in Melbourne. If only there had been 11 things to list. Then I could have added chocolate covered licorice! I hope you have enjoyed this peek at some of the things which put a smile on my face and make my day a happy one!

Perhaps you might like to discover something about my dear friend Jalana Franklin. It's her turn next, as she is my recipient of the Happy 101 Award.
