The Ten Commandments Award

A very special blogger, Melody, at Donkey Whisper Farms gave me the Ten Commandments Award several weeks ago. I am just now getting to the point that I have time to take action on acknowledging her recognition.

The Ten Commandments are from GOD, and are the standards to which we are to hold ourselves. The 10 commands can easily be grouped into two groups — love for God and love for others. These commandments where given to Moses and the Children of Israel in the wilderness after their escape from slavery in Egypt.

Can you imagine how much better our world would be IF all people lived and followed these commandments?

Ten Commandments from the Bible

The Ten Commandments Exodus 20:3-17. :

1. You shall have no other gods before Me.

2. You shall not make unto thee any graven image.

3. You shall not take the name of the Lord God in vain.

4. Remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy.

5. Honor your father and your mother.

6. You shall not murder.

7. You shall not commit adultery.

8. You shall not steal.

9. You shall not bear false witness.

10. You shall not covet.

6. What are the best and worst things about blogging?

The best part of blogging is being able to share the gospel with so many through the internet and to be able to read other inspiring blogs that are encouraging my growth in many areas. And I have to add making new friends.

The worst thing about blogging – The spam and pingbacks!

7. What was the last website you looked at? – I love the site but went there to get the instructions on responding to this award.

8. If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be?

I would have neck and shoulder muscles that did not hurt. They have been tense for so many years that they are rarely relaxed. I’ve spent too many years at a keyboard I guess.

9. Slankets, yes or no? Slankets are called Snuggies here. No Snuggies. Sweats or a blanket.

10. Tell us something about the person who nominated you.

Melody at is a survivor of a horrible semi truck motor vehicle accident that could have taken her life. She still struggles with pain as the result of her injuries yet she makes the most of each day.
