The Mystery Blogger Award 2019

“Mystery Blogger Award” is an award for amazing bloggers with ingenious posts. Their blog not only captivates; it inspires and motivates. They are one of the best out there, and they deserve every recognition they get. This award is also for bloggers who find fun and inspiration in blogging; and they do it with so much love and passion. – Okoto Enigma

Sweet Crystal Hacker has presented me with The Mystery Blogger Award 2019!

Thank you, Crystal!!  I am truly honored! Like you, when I began blogging I had no idea if and how I would be able to reach anyone outside of my immediate group. I simply wanted an outlet to encourage others to see Jesus in every day life experiences and to share lessons I was being taught through hiccups I experienced. I also wanted to show others that they were not alone in their journey. Holy Spirit has a way to remind us that He is always present, always teaching and a giver of lessons we will never forget.

In being obedient to being vulnerable with my lessons, God has blessed me with amazing blog mates, those who have been so encouraging by commenting and those whose encouragement comes from their writings. Crystal happens to give me both, plus, her “grace” continues to permeate my heart.

So, thank you Crystal, at Devotions of Grace for this, my very first award.

3 Things about me:

I was born and raised in Jamaica.

I had my son at age 14.

I love collecting books and yes, reading them. I can stay up all night with a good book.

Questions asked of me to answer:

  1. Who is your favorite person in the Bible? Um, so hard. I don’t have one person 🙈 I can relate and appreciate so many characters.
  2. What’s your favorite book? Apart from the Bible, I have a few. Top that comes to mind, The Count of Monte Cristo, When God Doesn’t Fix It, The Call, Mitford Series (all 14).
  3. What’s the first question you will ask when you get to Heaven? This one sounds cliche but “Why did you make the devil?”
  4. Do you have a favorite quote? If so, what is it? No favorite quote (it’s hard when so many good ones are out there)
  5. Where’s your dream vacation destination? Venice, Italy

Here are four of my best posts:

Daily Bread

Antidotes

Not another Joseph story!

Ultimate Sacrifice

      1. I just realized you were from Jamaica. Living in Florida, I have many coworkers from there. Also you had your son at 14! Wow! That must have been challenging. I hope to hear more about your journey with that. I love reading too.

        1. I hope those Jamaicans are treating you well. I lived in Florida for almost 10 years, where are you located? Yes, having a child as a child was not an easy feat but I can now say through God’s grace, I’m able to make it through.

          1. Lol. I’ve met some nice ones. My director is from the Bahamas, my supervisor is from Jamaica but they always brings Jamaican patties, very delicious! I live in the Miami area. What area did you live in? Well good job on your perseverance! Glad God’s grace kept you through it all.

            1. I hope the nice ones left a greater mark than the not so nice ones lol. I lived in Sunrise, not too far from you. It kept and is keeping me. My boy turns 18 next year so I’m pressing on through prayer.
