(New Post): Sunshine-warm Blessings, Bright Lovely Awards Sparkling, Inspiring Treasures

Sunshine Award

My first Sunshine Award comes from Ben Naga, one of my first blogging friends, whose philosophical wit shines like the sun– sometimes funny,  sometimes it stings,  but always brilliant and salty.  Thank you, Ben for this.

Very Inspiring Blogger Award (3)

I must thank Ben Naga again for thinking about me when he was Spring Cleaning.  He gave me ample time though to claim his blessing.  Consider it claimed, Ben, for I believe I am.

My second Very Inspiring Award comes from my dear friend Wendell Brown @ http://foreverpoetic.me/.  His poetry resonates with love for the God he adores with His mind,  heart and pen.  Please visit his site and be won over by his inspiring friendship as well.  Thank you, Wendell for this.

My third Very Inspiring Award comes warm and fresh from Yashikibuta @  http://yashikibuta.wordpress.com/.  She has fallen “ridiculously”  in- love with gardening lately,  that’s why she is thriving!  Thank you for  the smile you gave me today,  Yashie!

One Lovely Blog Award (2)

This blessing comes from my two lovely blogging friends– winloseordraw @  http://winloseordraw.wordpress.com/,  and the Thriving Pessimist @  http://yashikibuta.wordpress.com/,  and I want to thank them for this. Winloseordraw  is a talented artist in the category of Innovative Arts.  She employs  a variety of delightful painting  and drawing techniques  and approaches to image making.  Do visit her site and enjoy to the max her wonderful creativity.  The Thriving Pessimist @ http://yashikibuta.wordpress.com/ is a fellow dog person,   a child of nature by heart,  and now a thriving gardener who discovers the thrills of blooms and blossoms from the seeds and the soil she cultivates and handles with care.

I suppose I shall be able to satisfy the requirements of all three awards by posting 10 pieces of information and recommending 14 WordPress sites.


1.  I plan to retire on an island paradise (Palawan) where I was born.

2.  Max Lucado and Philip Yancey are two of my favorite authors,  Rio Alma and Pablo Neruda my favorite old time poets. Today,  I have many  favorites among my new blogging friends and I love them all.

3.  I am the author of two books– Fragments, Patterns and Visions;  and Seasons and Impressions and other Poems.

4.  My favorite magazines are the National Geographic Magazine, Better Homes and Garden, Time, and Newsweek.

5.  I have read the Holy Bible in the King James Version, and The New International Version.

6.  I don’t go to bed without taking a bath and brushing my teeth.

7.  Three of my favorite seafood dishes that I know how to prepare are Lobster or Prawn Thermidor,  Paella,  and Bouillabaisse.

8.  I keep good friends for life.

9.   I pray and read the Bible regularly, and try my best to honor my God in everything that I do.

10.One of the guiding lessons I learned in life is to be a good steward of the gifts and time allotted to me on this earth, so I have to choose wisely the things that have lasting and inspiring values.

Recommended Sites:















Do visit their blogs to find out why they are my recommended sites,  and do visit the ones who considered mine as a a worthy choice.  I’m pretty sure you wouldn’t be disappointed.

And to  my faithful blogging friends,  peace,  love,  joy,  and blessings to everyone!  I love you all!
