Often I wonder about these awards. I love to receive them and find it challenging to give them. Does that reflect a selfish spirit? Yes, it must. (Perhaps that's why I like the movie Lost April so well because its theme is selfishness versus generosity.) Anyway, I am certain that all those who received Oscars last Sunday evening did not stand at the podium wondering to whom they could pass it along. ;> So this one will rest here for a bit while I ponder where it should go. As always, it could go to every blogger on my list since you all make my day.
A Woman Who Is challenged me to the Page 123 Meme. It looks like fun!
1. Pick up the nearest book of 123 pages or more. No cheating!
2. Find page 123.
3. Find the first 5 sentences.
4. Post the next 3 sentences.
5. Tag 5 people. (Or, as I am going to do, multiply by eight and add two, which means that anyone on my blogroll who would like to do this one day can consider herself officially challenged.)
The book is Classic Christianity by Bob George:
The subject is law and grace. I have found that very few Christians are familiar with this topic. Those that have heard of law and grace tend to put it into the category of a stale theological subject.
Now that's pretty dry stuff for a book that I will finish today and start reading over again tomorrow. And when I finish it the next time, I will pick it up again and do the same thing. This book is incredible! The subtitle is "Life's Too Short to Miss the Real Thing." I have been in extreme danger of missing the real thing for way too long. Look for the March quote of the month from this book that will be/is a lot more interesting.
Confectioner's sugar snow falling today...I heard the sleet pinging off the windows last night so I am glad that it has switched to this. Gosh, when did my blog become a weather report?!
This is the snow mountain at the end of my driveway. Maybe I should document the melting progress of same...check in next Saturday for another riveting photo of it.
A relaxing Saturday to one and all!

There is a Sea—
But Flowers—negotiate between us—
Are flowers blooming in your world? They're not in mine; I so need a flower ministry. Fortunately, all over Blogdom, flowers are in bloom. If you have blooming flowers, hope that you'll share — often!

This was the scene out my bedroom window this morning. Aren't I smart for remembering to take the camera upstairs? ;>
And this was a little chickadee just as the storm started to crank up yesterday afternoon. My goodness! Chickadees are as much of a challenge as the moon!
I've been thinking of birds, birdhouses, and nests a lot apparently, if my picture file is any indication. Here's the cutest idea for a birdhouse ever. It is from Zipper Gifts. com.
Literary Birdhouse (in Kids' Section)
There are a few children's books about that are no good for reading anymore, but perhaps I could figure out how to create one of these. Hmmmm, something to ponder.
This explains E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G. If you have a few minutes to spare, you can see what I mean.

Enjoy a laugh or two!

I'm off to join half of the county as we forage for food and gasoline. Then an afternoon of Nana sitting and then I'll be visiting blogs this evening. Enjoy your day!

Then, in case you're interested in taking little quizzes today, here's another touted as Dr. Phil's Personality Test.
Disclaimer: This is not actually Dr. Phil's Personality Test, but it's fun all the same.
I'm recuperating from a late-night birthday party so I'll wander off now and get busy with my day...

There is always a lot to be thankful for, if you take the time to look. For example, I'm sitting here thinking how nice it is that wrinkles don't hurt. ~Author Unknown
Listen to me, O house of Jacob,
all you who remain of the house of Israel,
you whom I have upheld since you were conceived,
and have carried since your birth.
Even to your old age and gray hairs
I am he, I am he who will sustain you.
I have made you and I will carry you;
I will sustain you and I will rescue you.
~ Isaiah 46:3&4 NIV
Off to get some breakfast...
