A Special Thank You


I wanted to give a big hug and special thanks to all the readers of this blog for nominating me for Top 100 Women's Christian Blogs for 2008 over at Internet Cafe Devotions who is sister site to Christian Women Online Magazine under the Proverbs 31 category.

Of course, I must say that God gets all the glory for this blog and any recognition it receives as it is because of Him that I am even able to post! I also wanted to thank all the ladies who have also sent rewards in the past-- I want you to know that I am planning on compiling it all on one page when I have a bit of free time. I did wrestle with this decision because I didn't want it to look like I was trying to get any personal recognition-- but I do realize that many ladies have taken the time to present these awards to me and the least I can do out of appreciation to them is acknowledge it.

Dear readers, you are a wonderful encouragement to me and I appreciate all the comments, emails, rewards, articles linked to this blog, etc. as I wish I could respond to every one. I cannot express to you what a blessing it has been 'meeting' you all and wish I had time to connect with each and every one of you on a more personal level.

Thank you for making my short period of blogging a genuine pleasure!

  5. Mrs. Fuentes,
    I'm so glad your blog got recognized in a special way.
    It has no doubt been a huge blessing to me and continues to be daily.
    Because of your biblical widsom and advice, I have made many changes in my life. I've finally begun to ENJOY being a homemaking wife and mother and love every moment I spend inside my home, wondering why I ever left it in the first place. My husband and I have made the decision that next september I will begin homeschooling my 2 boys, God willing, which will be a huge blessing and challenge that I am so happy to receive (my oldest is currently in a public french-immersion school). With the Lord's help I know I will never regret taking this important life-changing step. If only I can count the many ways my family has changed because of the wisdom I have tried to put into practice since reading your blog it would take hours to express them.
    I just want to say THANK YOU back to you, because you may have gotten a little recognition here on a website, but your real recognition will be up in heaven when you meet us (all the ladies who read your blog) and realize how much of a difference you made in each family's life since the moment you decided to start ministering God's word to women through this blog.
    God Bless You richly and continue to give you strength and health.
    Your sister in Christ,
    Nadine
