Pay It Forward

Today, I'm joining Holly (A Life-Size Catholic Blog) in 
Pay It Forward.  

Here is what Holly has to say about Pay It Forward:

“Pay It Forward” is an avenue to connect with each other, and reap the benefits from what that connecting can do: find new friends, make you laugh a little, cry a lot (maybe that was only me), and affect you in a way that keeps you thinking for days afterwards.  So, be sure to write up a little tidbit about one of your favorite posts, or blogs—from another blogger—and  “Pay It Forward”.

Just click on the button below to learn more!  You'll be glad you did.

I have been blogging for a while, which has resulted in meeting many, many special people.  Over the months, years, I have talked about, laughed with and featured a number of these outstanding bloggers.

Today, I would like for you to meet my friend Angela at Free Spirit Haven.  You will love Angela….she’s REAL.  She will make you laugh, cry, and think.  She is a Christian.  There was once this saying going around that went something like this ~

“If they were to put you on trial for being a Christian, would there be enough evidence to convict you?”

Angela would be convicted…the jury wouldn’t even have to leave to deliberate the evidence….the cold hard facts are written all over her blog, her heart, her life.

Behold, this woman is

  1. Behold, this woman is

    GUILTY!.......I remember one time when I was in a counseling session and the counselor gave me a 'visual picture' of me in 'court'.

    God, the Judge, Satan the persecutor. Satan going on about this and that and everything in between of my life....

    It's all true. Satan hasn't left anything out.

    Than Christ Jesus stands.

    My Defender. My Deliverer.....My Savior. The One that has set me free.

    Your post made me get all teary eyed. Ya, your right, I do have that habit of making you wet your pants,,LOL. My goodness gracious, it happens to me too,lol.

    I can see you have been reading in quite detail about me. You got me down pat girl..LOL.

    I LOVED 'warrior'....That is my greatest desire and my hope...To be a warrior bride for my Lord. Fighting on the front lines of the battle, not fighting for victory, BUT fighting from the position of victory and keeping the evil one and his army behind the gates of hell where they belong...Blessings Cheryl. ((hugs))

    Many blessings…

  4. Love this.....Loving Angela! Such a real woman. She has been such an encouragement to me this very week. What I love the most about her is that she lets The Word of God speak through her, I can't wait until the day we all meet in Heaven. Of course worshipping our Lord will be the focus, but I am sure we can work in some reunion hugs! what a day that will be. Love you both. Truly.

  5. Thank you for sending me to meet such a special woman. I enjoyed the visit and I'm happy to be visiting you, too.
