Sharing encouraging ideas….

12/30 A candle lighter thank you….

 

The Candle Lighter Thank You…..an acknowledgement to those who offer hope, resilience, strength to others in need…..

btw…the “rules” of this  are…no rules…no strings attached….anyone can offer this candle to anyone else…no string attached….no requirements….anyone who feels they are offering light to others can also accept the candle and add it to their own blog… I was offered the candle by Connie, from  A Hope for Today.

A quote from Kate, from Believe Anyway, the person who created this “award”…..( link to Kate’s blog Believe Anyway,  with explanation of the acknowledgement: Believe Anyway  )

“Why am I doing this? I think people that are going through the efforts to be positive and make the world better through their efforts and blogs deserve to be recognized. I am always looking for encouragement and ‘light’. I want my faith, my optimism, and my love for life to help to set the world ablaze. Hence: The Candle Lighter Award.”

And more by Kate: 

“That being said, let’s light up the world with Candle Lighters. The world needs joy and lots of it. Let’s leave no one out who is adding to the world’s joy. I love church services that begin with the church all dark. Everyone is holding an unlit candle. Gradually the candles all get lit by one candle lighting another, and so on. That is so moving, and it was the image I have in mind of the Candle Lighter Award spreading around the world. So put the Candle Lighter Award Candle photo on your blog….”
