Bloggin Blessing

Today I came online to find that wonderful lady Esther had nominated me for a Bloggin Blessing. What a lovely way to greet the day. Thankyou Esther

The idea… it’s a game of tag with a difference, rather than looking inwardly, we look outside ourselves and bless, praise and pray for one blog friend. By participating in this endeavour we not only make the recipient of the blessing feel valued and appreciated, but we are having some fun too. We’re going to see how far the bloggin’ blessings can travel around the world and how many people can be blessed! Recipients of a bloggin’ blessing may upload the above image to their sidebar if they choose to. To read more about the bloggin’ blessing please click here .

I now bless....Marilena, Paula and Lisa

I bless these three ladies who allow us a glimpse into what moves their spirit and how much they love and share their faith. One can truly see God's Hand in all they that write.

A prayer for Marilena, Lisa and Paula: may the blessing of almighty God, of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, come down upon you and remain with you forever. Amen. May your hearts be always guided by the Holy Spirit and may the love of Our Lady always protect you.

Total Blessings sent so far: 3

and that’s it, nearly…

So, all Marilena, Lisa and Paula now have to do is to;

a) bless 3 blog buddies

b) Include the ‘God Bless you’ image in her post

c) Explain briefly why they are blessing the person they are blessing

d) pray/include in the post the prayer for the recipients of the blessing

e) write in their posts ‘X’ blessing sent. For example, Marilena, Lisa and Paula will write ‘4′ blessings sent, when they have blessed someone…because Deb was the first blessing sent, and mine is the second. This then makes mine the third blog blessed.

Since this is a somewhat orderly means of blessing we should know exactly how many blessings have been sent at any time because then finally….

f) The recipient and subsequent sender of a blessing should type in the com box of this very post that a blessing has been sent. For easy reference a link to this post will make it into my sidebar.

Sounds a bit confusing, I know. But it could be fun, we’ll soon see!

Thanks for playing along.
