Reader Appreciation Award! Thank you!*

Posted in Encouragement, General tagged , , , at 10:04 pm by The Water Bearer

I received this award some time ago, yet as time is my enemy I have only just been able to get around to accepting it. Big, huge, gigantic thanks to George at Personal Growth  for the kind gesture of nominating Inner Angels & Enemies for ‘The Reader Appreciation Award’. I am truly grateful to be included in this group. Please check out George’s blog as it really deserves it’s nomination for this award. George has many wonderfully insightful posts that are a true pleasure to read.

Now the rules for accepting this award are as follows:

  • Add a picture of the award to your blog.
  • Thank the blogger who nominated you and include a link to their blog.
  • Nominate 5-10 other Bloggers and inform those selected that they have been nominated

There are so many wonderful blogs out there, and I thoroughly enjoy reading them (Unfortunately I often have a hard time keeping up with you all! You are such a creative, and productive bunch!)

Anyway I will pass this award onto the following blogs, I hope you check them out and see why they deserve this nomination:

I really wanted to nominate all the blogs I have previously nominated but I couldn’t fit you all in. You have all become so important to me, for your loyalty and companionship, your constant support and encouragement. You all know who you are and if I had an award for ‘Most loyal blogging family members’ I would be handing it out to you all!

Thank you for helping me gain some feedback for my writing, you are a great comfort to me and have encouraged me to keep going on the often uncertain road of a writer.


Another Award Oh My!!*

Posted in Encouragement, General tagged , , , , at 11:17 am by The Water Bearer


Huge thanks to my blogging friend Summer at Summer4Soul who has kindly nominated me for the ‘Lovely Blog Award’. Please drop over and visit her lovely blog as she deserved this honor and was rightly nominated also.

Isn’t it a wonderful thing, to receive an award for doing something that you love!

I must admit it is not something I am used to, aside from a couple of ‘Participation Certificates’,  I have only ever received two other awards that I can think of (before I began blogging that is). One was for ‘Best Attendance’ at Pony Club when I was a girl, and the second was ‘Rookie of the year’ for my first part-time job at McDonalds. I didn’t even know these awards existed until I received them, so you can imagine the lovely surprise to know that my dedication to horse riding and doing my best at work was noticed.

Yet for some reason these blogging awards have a very different feel to them. I am dubious that I can write well, as I have never received any formal training and I am not ready to show any of my finished works to a publisher to gain constructive feedback. My calling was giving to me from left field, I did not plan to become a ‘writer’, yet once I began writing I found this immense joy springing forth as I poured my ideas out onto the page in front of me. To receive awards that let me know someone has connected with my words encourages me more than you can know. Thank you so so much!

Seven facts about me:

  1. I prefer savoury to sweet
  2. My favourite band is ‘The Waifs’ (Folk Blues)
  3. The history of Marie Antionette fascinates me
  4. I thoroughly enjoyed watching the Olympics with my family this year, more than any other year
  5. I would love to see Europe soon
  6. I have written a few children’s books (Yet to show them to a publisher mind you)
  7. I recently discovered, after years of refute, that I love Indian food

Blog’s I nominate for the Lovely Blog Award: Please check them out..

  1. Tj’s Garden
  2. SAB Inspirations & More
  3. The Insanity of Motherhood
  4. Sober Boots
  5. A Life Less Scripted
  6. The Journey of a Woman
  7. Life of a Female Bible Warrior
  8. Annie Wald
  9. Power of Positive Thoughts
  10. Sunshine’s Reflections
  11. Mom in the Muddle
  12. The Lighthouse
  13. Subhan Zein
  14. Close Families
  15. From a Humble Servant’s Heart

Once again let me express how much joy blogging has brought me, I appreciate every one of my readers and am encouraged by your comments. Please let me know if you have dropped by and lets share in the joy of Faith, Truth and Self-Awareness together!


Very Inspiring Blogger Award! Thanks so much!*

I can’t begin to explain how surreal it is to be nominated for my first ever blogging award! Thank-you so much to my friend in the blogosphere Tj for this wonderful honor! Please check out her adventures and inspiring photography in her blog Tj’sGarden.

I am so new to this writing business that I am not quite sure how to process this acknowledgement. It kind of feels a bit unwarranted and I am humbled by it.

I was called to write many years ago and had no idea where to start. After a few bodged attempts I have begun to find some flow and it has had a wonderful effect on my soul. I write to help spread the power of truth, faith and self-awareness, to inspire courage in those who find themselves struggling in this sometimes difficult life. I pray for everyone to reach their God given potential and fight off lies and fear at every turn.

Inner Angels and Enemies is purposed to help everyone become aware of the war inside and share stories of the abundant power of God’s love that is at our fingertips, if we can only realise and reach for it.

In accepting this award, it is my pleasure to complete the following:

  1. Link back to the blogger who nominated you.
  2. Post the blog award image on your page.
  3. Tell 7 facts about yourself.
  4. Nominate 15 other blogs and let the nominees know they have been chosen

Seven facts about me:

  1. I only work part-time, being invested at home with my girls is my priority.
  2. I have a younger Brother and an older Sister (Yep, Middle child syndrome!)
  3. When I sing really loud it makes me so happy inside! It calms my chaos!
  4. I have recently discovered the joy of creative cooking.
  5. I have many favourite TV shows: Parenthood and Boston Legal come to mind.
  6. I have 3 gorgeous puppy dogs. (One is at work with me today)
  7. I was born in the U.K. but have lived in Australia for almost 30 years.

The wonderfully inspiring blogs I wish to nominate for this award are:

  1. Weak and Loved
  2. A Prophetic Walk
  3. The Alabaster Jar
  4. Sober Boots
  5. Eternity in an hour
  6. Goss Coaching
  7. It’s a God Thing
  8. Close Families
  9. The Love Culture
  10. Along the Banks
  11. Life Revelation
  12. Life’s Trails
  13. Reality of Christ
  14. Deb’s Journal
  15. Riverbend Behavioral Health

I was very hard to narrow down to only 15 bloggers, and I would love to hear from you to let me know you received your nomination. I am thrilled to be part of such an amazing group of people whom I have had the pleasure of interacting with in the blogosphere. I can see a vision of us all sitting around in the New World sharing Words, Love, Faith and Songs of Praise!

Wishing you all Abundant Blessings…In His Name….
