I have been selected by Amber over at This Catholic Journey to receive this award, which is a completely unexpected surprise and much appreciated, especially since I've always felt blessed by knowing her.
About this award:
Mathetes is the Greek word for disciple. I'd like to take the opportunity to award five other bloggers with this award and badge for acting in the role of a disciple of Christ. These five all share the message in their own creative ways, and I admire them all for what they do.
In the spirit of this award, the rules are simple. Winners of this award must pick five other "disciples" to pass it on to. As you pass it on, I just ask that you mention and provide links for (1)this post as the originator of the award (Dan King of management by God),
(2) the person that awarded it to you, Amber at This Catholic Journey -and then
(3) name and sites of the five that you believe are fulfilling the role of a disciple of Christ. If you know of other deserving recipients of this award, and would like to start a new string, then please post a link to where you've started in in the comments to this post. I would love for many deserving bloggers to be blessed with this recognition.
I've chosen to give this award to the following sites:
1. Monastic Musings which is written by Sr. Edith, who writes about sociology, religion, and living the life of a disciple;
2. Title Varies Slightly, with whom I also share a fellowship on issues of inclusion;
3. From the Anchor Hold which was written by Karen Marie, who passed away recently, who exemplified the role of a disciple of Christ. Her blog is still up and is worth a visit. Knowing she had an incurable illness, she wrote three years ago: "I hope that when my time comes, and the loudspeakers start hollering about my room, that there is someone who takes pity on me and prays for me. It's on that list of the Things Catholics Do, the Works of Mercy: Pray for both the living and the dead." Now who will tell me to slow down in my wheelchair? I miss you, Karen Marie...and there are a lot of people praying ...
4. A Long Island Catholic, who cares about all of God's children as he writes about his faith
5. Just Another Day of Catholic Pondering - one of the bloggers who volunteers for the Catholic Carnival and generously gives of her time while at the same time is just discovering how talented a writer she is . (Those God given talents!)
Thank you all for enriching my faith life. And thank you , Amber.
