My Mystery Blogger Award

Wow! I am having a genuine Sally Fields moment here. I have just been nominated for my first-ever blogger award… The Mystery Blogger Award by Mitch Teemley (see his work at https://mitchteemley.com/. He is insanely good!). The idea is to give some additional attention to “newish” bloggers and though I have been at this for more than a year, I am very, very grateful.

Myster blogger award

The Rules:

  • Use the logo and list the rules
  • Thank whoever nominated you and provide a link to their blog
  • Tell your readers 3 things about yourself (see below)
  • Answer the questions you were asked (see belower)
  • Nominate other blogs and notify them (see belowerer)
  • Ask your nominees 5 questions of your choice, with one weird or funny question

The Three Things About Me:

  • I am married to the best human God ever created.
  • I am a semi-retired pastor in the United Methodist Church… currently very pissed off at said church for its failure to stand on the side of justice where LGBTQ+ people are concerned.
  • I CHERISH any time I am able to spend with my beloved guitar.

The Questions I Was Asked by Mitch:

  • What moment or choice in your past do you wish you could undo? That is a toughie, being the active proponent of grace that I am, but I would have to say it was not really using my time at my mother’s bedside during the last moments of her life very well. I was almost entirely focused on myself and MY sadness.
  • Funniest movie/s you ever saw? Deadpool. Can’t wait for the sequel!!! And don’t judge too harshly, but Blazing Saddles and Young Frankenstein have to be right there, too. (“PUTTIN’ ON THE RITZ!!”)
  • Greatest song/s you’ve ever heard? It is Well with My Soul, Love Lies Bleeding/Funeral for a Friend (Elton John), and Whipping Post (Allman Brothers Band).
  • The greatest truth you’ve ever learned? That the ONE THING from which everything else descends and on which everything else depends is LOVE.
  • What are the last words you want to hear before dying, and/or the first words you want to hear after dying? They are the same. I would love to hear the words: “Well done” on both ends… with maybe the phrase, “… good and faithful servant” added to the post-mortem pronouncement.

My nominees:

1.) Weekly Devotion (https://weeklydevotion.com)

2.) Pedantry.com (https://wibble.blog)

3.) Destination Humanity (https://destinationhumanity.com)

4.) Jesusocial (https://jesussocial.wordpress.com)

5.) Defining Yellow (https://definingyellow.com)

6.) Swerve Strikes Again (https://swervestrikesback.wordpress.com)

 

The Questions for you:

  • Other than where you live right now, where else on earth would you choose to live if you could?
  • What person currently living has had the most profound influence on your life? Why?
  • Why do you blog?
  • Dogs? Cats? Something else? Why?
  • What do you believe happens when we die?
