Beetreegathering Bee-utiful Award

Beetreegathering AWARD

My friend, Debbie at bee tree gathering has nominated me for the Beetreegathering Bee-utiful Award! I have to be honest, it came at a time when I needed to hear her encouragement the most. I was totally humbled by the blessing she gifted me the morning I received and read it. It definitely made me cry! I will share her words later on in this post, so I can keep her words to read again in the days to come. First, let’s take a look at the reason behind this award and what it stands for.

There are many BEE-UTIFUL blogs on WordPress. We are a community of great writers, who have a unique capacity to have touched many lives on our journey.

The goal of this award is to help give recognition and also to help encourage new bloggers. The Beetreegathering Award recognizes bloggers who share their stories or thoughts in a Bee-utiful manner to connect with viewers and followers. In order to “accept” the award, the nominated blogger should nominate a fellow blogger, who has been a cornerstone in their journey: 

My thoughts: I knew the first time I saw Debbie on a Christian social media site, we were going to be friends. I had no idea at the time, how our friendship would grow as it has. We were perfect strangers. She is more than just beautiful. And she has no idea just how much. The love she has for her family and for anyone who is blessed to have her friendship, is fierce. She would swim the deepest ocean, walk a hundred miles to help those she loves. She has encouraged me so many times, not only by her words, but by her actions. Just watching how strong she is. She is a great mom and grandmother. Not only that, she is gifted in interior decorating, painting and much more. Her writing moves me, and oh my goodness, her prayers are so powerful! If it were not for her, there would be no Heart Tokens blog. She had to give me my own personal pep rally to push me past my fear of starting one. I love you, my friend. I am eternally grateful! Thanks for being my friend. I am truly honored by this award. 💜

So, now it’s my turn to nominate. I have prayed about how to do this…Being there are so many of you here who have touched my life—Guys and ladies alike—I could choose everyone and just know that I do.. It would take a lifetime to share how you each have touched my life personally.

They each are beautiful souls who have been through a lot. Caring friends who love to give and love people. They always have an encouraging word for someone in need. They each are truly blessed with the gifts God gave them. I know they have blessed me personally. Also, thanks to each of you who first reached out to me when I started my blog. Thanks Warren for being the first to comment on my first blog post. Thanks to each of you for your friendship!💜🤗 You are all beautiful to me.🤗.You each have deeply touched my life in ways you will never comprehend the depth of. I am a better person just by knowing you all! Never give up or underestimate your worth or your purpose.

One heartfelt blog Heart Tokens was created by my friend Renee, without a doubt probably my biggest fan. We go back over fifteen years, becoming fast friends on a Christian site that is similar to Facebook. Tonight, I nominate Renee, of for the “First Bee-utiful Award.” as she is gifted in encouragement, capable of lifting one’s spirit up out of the pit of trials. What drew me to her as a friend, is that she never passed judgment on me. No matter how I talked, acted, or vented, Renee stayed a faithful friend. Beyond Priceless is a person of this caliber in today’s world. She stayed closer than a sister to me these last several years. Renee not only has encouraged me as a blogger and writer, but our ongoing friendship carried me with prayers through the most difficult trials as a Christian.” There are times I wanted to walk away, yet divinely, you always seemed to call me at those hard moments, putting me back on track.

Renee, today, I recognize you in front of all our fellow bloggers and writers, as I look at a larger picture. The treasure that most people don’t know is that Renee and I have never actually met in person. That is the miracle that God gave us these last fifteen years, as women who were in need of a friend, who would not only pray for each other but get down in the mud together. I sincerely believe every person needs a “Renee” in their life!

I have many more bloggers I wish to nominate, however, tonight, Renee, I congratulate you on a Bee-utiful Blog that has touched and transformed lives. Thank you for all the wonderful stories and posts!
