Party On, Moms!

Oh, hi! Glad you could make it on such short notice. I really wasn't planning on having a party, but I've just redecorated (my blog, not my house - that's still on my to do list) and I'd be delighted to show you around. No, that isn't my front porch, nor did I snap the photo. Credit for the image, which I found at MorgueFile.com, goes to Mary R. Vogt. Come on in and take a Tour of My Home.

On the right, you'll notice my Daily Bible Verse, courtesy of BibleGateway.com and, ultimately, God, Who has revealed Himself to us in His Word. I can't get through one day without it, and I hope the same is true for you. My testimony can be found here.

Next is my list of shared links via Google Reader. I love this tool! In just a couple of clicks, I can spotlight great posts from other blogs without having to create a new post.

If you scroll on down a little further, you'll see some very special people who are being prayed for by lots of other special people. I encourage you to read their stories. The buttons link to their blogs.

The rest is the usual blog fare - you know, links, blog rolls, archives, and more! buttons! Feel free to browse my archives, where you will find a little levity, a little gravity, some hilarity, some solemnity, much sincerity, not much brevity, and a whole lotta faith.

Here are some of my favorites:

Down-Home Schoolin'

Fwd: Fw: Fw: When you care enough to send the very blessed.

Answers to Some of Life's Tough Questions

To Meme or Not To Meme (A Novel Idea)

Thanks for stopping by! I'll be dropping in on you soon! Many thanks to our Ultimate Blog Party hostesses, Janice and Susan at 5 Minutes for Mom. Ladies, you rock!!

I love this new look, Brenda. Your sidebar gets more and more interesting all the time. I think you've probably forgotten more than I ever knew about blog design. :-)

Brenda said...

Hello Brenda....another Fellow Brenda here too. I read your comment on my blog....I still have not had a chance to sit down and creat a post about the blog party. Cool that your name is so close to mine, first and last and that my hubby is named Bryan. Kind of freaky.
I love your blog too. Cool colors and content. Thanks for stopping by my blog...I have put yours on my favorites!
Party ON!

Dawn said...

You're right in your comment - a mother's heart singing! And you're supposed to be hearing Steve Green singing "Great Is Thy Faithfulness," but for some reason it didn't work.

I love your new colors! Beautiful.

Mommy Dearest said...

I like your new color scheme--it looks really nice! That Google Reader thing is great. I'll have to check that out.

Mommy Dearest said...

My goodness--you've been visited by the Captain of the Starship Enterprise!

I love your banner! I have never seen a google reader before--very cool! I'm enjoying reading your posts----loved the To Meme or Not To Meme.

Have a great week and I'll be back---I'm adding you to my bloglines (which I just recently figured out so google reader might take awhile).

Tammy and Parker said...

Hi! I saw your Mowgli comment on Boomama's blog, and I had to come over and tell you, THAT'S IT!!! That's EXACTLY who he looks like. Hilarious. Great party, by the way. I'm having a party at my place too, if you wanna stop by. I have some scrumptious scones sitting on the counter. ;-)

Susanna said...

Thank you for coming to my party. I will answer your question on Friday.....I have a few to do!

Jen said...

Hi nice to meet you BibleGateway.com is very good :)

Susanna said...

Hi Brenda

I have answered the question you left at my blog party. Stop by to see what I said!

Barbara H. said...

I love your design -- lovely, peaceful, welcoming.

I agree about God's Word.

Since my blog party post is no longer on my first page and my host won't allow a "sticky post," I'll post the link to my blog party here. Hope you can stop by!

Brandie said...

Hello! It's so nice to stop by and meet you =)
