My 2nd award, WOOHOOOO! I was already awarded with a Genuine Blogger Award , and now I got a Versatile Blogger Award too!


THANK YOU, From the Pews! I don’t know much about From the Pews, I know she’s a She, she sounds very courageous and she honestly shares her feelings/beliefs/doubts/faith online. I admire her for that! Here’s a small excerpt from her ABOUT-page;

The purpose, or reason for being, of this site is simple… We, or I rather, look for something more in this world, a reason for doing what we do, a reason for being, a sense of purpose. …..And thus, here you have me…still on my journey, still searching, and now hoping that by sharing with you all, perhaps we can all find this Path together. Perhaps we can give one another a tug here and there to keep us going down the difficult, narrow, but NEVER Lonely Path.
