Yesterday, my good and dear friend Susan of Penless Writer gave me a challenge:
"My challenge to my blog friends is this: write 8 of your blog friends names in a unique way and post them. Then come back over and let me know. You must write the blogger's name that tagged you, then add 7 others. Be creative and if possible use the natural wonders of the world!"
I am to tag 7 bloggers on top of Susan. I told Susan that my blogger friends aren’t really the taggable type and that I most probably would not be able to tag 7. I thought about it and decided to bless, not tag. Therefore you do not need to carry this on if you do not want to.
Susan tagged me, using stones. She wrote our names on stones she collected from her travels. I choose to use the books I have collected through the years. I dedicate these books to these special people. I may not have read all these books yet but I chose them for you for a special reason.
Susan of Penless Writer
Keep a Quiet Heart by Elisabeth Elliot
Susan is the sweetest of all my blogger friends. I chose this for her because she both reminds me of Elisabeth Elliot and in her simplicity encourages me to keep a quiet heart and just marvel at the hugeness of God.
Kevin of The Familyhood Church
Table Talk by Martin Luther
Kevin is the most “prolific” of all my blogger friend and for this reason, I dedicate to him Martin Luther’s Table Talk. I look forward to just sit at a table and talk God with Kevin, and highly probable that I will be dwarfed by him (as he will be dwarfed by Luther).
DugALug of Weapons of Mass Deduction
Now My Eyes Have Seen You by Robert S. Fyall
Doug is my first blogger friend. He has not been in bloggerland for awhile though he still pops in once in awhile, and I am always glad to see him. I dedicated this book to him as he struggles on for Christ.
Julia of Kingdom Jewels
Love in Hard Places by DA Carson
Julia is my dearest blogger friend. We have been together through slow days and good days, bloggerly speaking. I see in her a love for God, for her family, for what she does at work and at home, for the people around her. So I dedicated this book to her as I see in her much love, even in the hard places.
Milly of The Milly Times
Keep in Step with the Spirit by JI Packer
Milly is the most matter-of-fact blogger friend. She speaks her mind, she says her piece, she shares her thoughts. With this I dedicated this book to her: as she continues to keep in step and step on with the Spirit of God.
Missy of Texas Chilly
Joy Unspeakable by D.Martin Lloyd Jones
Missy is the most energetic of my blogger friends. I dedicate this book to her as she continues to spark off the joy of Christ to all around her.
Karen of TSSO!
Showing the Spirit by DA Carson
Karen is the most artistic of my blogger friend, in words and thoughts as well. I dedicate this book to her as she shows to other her spirit in Christ through her work and her words.
Alex of Random Musings from a Doctor’s Chair
Between Two Worlds by John Stott
Alex is my first blogger partner-in-crime as far as books are concerned, but I would not for the life of me be able to match his monthly book frenzy where he buys them by the dozens. I dedicated this book to him as he continues to shine for Christ between the two worlds. (Hmm… Augustine’s City of God would also be a good choice, but I have not yet got that one on my shelves.)
There, eight! Seriously, you do not have to carry on with the tag. Like what Susan said to me, "I just wanted you on mine".
Thanks for being a blessing to me and God bless y'all!
