Blog Day - August 31, 2008

What is BlogDay?

BlogDay was created with the belief that bloggers should have one day dedicated to getting to know other bloggers from other countries and areas of interest. On that day Bloggers will recommend other blogs to their blog visitors.

With the goal in mind, on this day every blogger will post a recommendation of 5 new blogs. This way, all blog readers will find themselves leaping around and discovering new, previously unknown blogs.

What will happen on BlogDay?

One long moment on August 31st, bloggers from all over the world will post recommendations of 5 new Blogs, preferably Blogs that are different from their own culture, point of view and attitude. On this day, blog readers will find themselves leaping around and discovering new, unknown Blogs, celebrating the discovery of new people and new bloggers.

My sister has had this posted on her blog for a few days now so I clicked over to find out what all the hype was about. I thought it sounded interesting so I am joining in the festivities today!

Angie Smith is an amazing woman who loves Jesus with all her heart. She and her family have walked through the valley of losing a child recently, and perhaps that is why I am so drawn to her blog. I know that I am drawn too because she speaks with such TRUTH and REAL-NESS. She speaks words that I have thought in my heart and spirit but didn't know how to say them outloud. This woman has been such an encouragement to me - as I hope that my prayers for her have been. I encourage you to check her out. Even if you have not experienced life like she has you will find that your spirit is lifted just by "listening" to her.

She has also begun a new ministry that I thought I'd plug - Broken Pitcher Ministries. If you live in or around Nashville, TN you might want to check it out. She is starting a Bible Study and this blog is established to communicate with those participating but I'm hoping for some valuable insights as well.

Island Life with Kailani always has some fantastic giveaways. I have YET to win one but I'm always trying! She is living in Hawaii, a place that I would love to visit one day so I like hearing about life there.

Worm Whisperer -- This is the blog of a dear friend of mine. She is an amazing woman who loves God and the world around her. Plus she has got a great eye for photography. I am always checking in to see what new beauties she has up. Check her out!

This blog is one that I found on my sisters blog. She is always talking about Melissa at A long way from the Theta house. Melissa lives in Dallas where her husband runs an inner city ministry. She is a SAHM with 5 kids. I have just recently been reading her blog and I find the way that she shares from her heart comforting. She is REAL and I admire that in people. Check her out - not only will you get a good laugh but you will leave feeling encouraged.

I hope that you find as much encouragement on these blogs as I have!
