Word up!

Aug 28

Word up!  I’m really telling my age.  I’m a child of the 80’s!  Remember that old song by Cameo?  If not, do a little Youtube search.  It’ll all come back quickly.  Wanna know why I’m like “so totally” WORD?  Check it out.  These are all words from my blog.  The bigger the word, the more often it is used.  I found this at Wordle.net  If you have a blog you can do it, too.  

Isn’t that cool?  Can you see who is number one on my blog?  Let’s all give a shout for GOD!  Word.  (I’m going to so drive my husband crazy with the 80’s talk for the rest of the night.  I can feel it.)
I also have to say thank-you to my bloggy friend Peggy for these sweet awards she has so lavishly bestowed upon me.  Peggy is the best.  She is such an encourager.  Peggy, when we get to Heaven, could you please request to be in my cul-de-sac?  I would love a neighbor like you.  If you haven’t ever visited Peggy’s blog, hop on by.  She lives in Mexico!  You’ll surely be blessed.  
And now for the awards.  Peggy has given me the Kind Blogger award.  I’m not sure what kind I am, though.  My cousin used to tell me I had kind hair – the kind on a goat’s back.  Peggy must mean I’m kind-a sheepy.  Thanks, Peggy.  Word.
Peggy has also given me the Friendship Award.  She has been such a sweet friend to me.  Now, I am supposed to pass these totally awesome and rad awards on to other deserving, kind, and friendly people.  
So, here goes…
I pronounce the following people both kind and friendly.
These are some good natured sweet people, folks.  Don’t take my word for it.  Go read them for yourselves!  Word up!
And because I want to leave you with a little something.  Let’s think a moment about my wordle picture.  What if instead of all the words on your blog, the picture was of the words that came out of your mouth.  (Yikes, some of y’all are sweating now.)  Imagine what that word picture would look like.  Which words would be the biggest on your picture? (I know what mine would be:  COLIN! And it would be in all caps because I’m always shouting it!)  And which words would you wish you could remove?  Tomorrow is a new day!  Let’s get our word pictures in order.  Word!
May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer. Psalm 19:14 NIV

P.S.  No, I have not forgotten about Hello, my name is…  Just keep watching.  The next installment will be out soon.

    I thought you HAD forgotten – or that the last one was the end and I just completely missed the point (that happens to me sometimes – never was good with reading comprehension).
    I just did this wordle thing the other day – I think it is sooo cool – I think I will post mine tomorrow.
    If someone wordled (is wordled a word? – say that 5 times real fast) my everyday talking – I am afraid that after my kids names, the word DONT would be largest……

    Love you,

    Hi Carol!!
    Oh, I’m so humbled. This is so sweet of you! Thank you so much. I have the hardest time accepting any kind of recognition. I probably come across as rude and would never intentionally do that, but it’s just hard sometimes. All stems from the unworthiness junk from the past. 🙂
    Well dear friend, thank you so much. You’ve made my day!
    Love ya,
