What a fun SURPRISE! :)

It's time to CELEBRATE! Today marks the 1 year Anniversary of this blog ~ *She Sparkles*! Woo Hoo!!

I've had such a BLAST with my blog over the past year! I love sharing with others how awesome God is ~ while meeting new friends around the world!! I just love it!! I've had my creative wheels spinning, trying to think how to "mark this moment" and celebrate with you ~ my devoted bloggy friends. But guess what??... you beat me to it! Today I received a special gift from you!!

Yep...imagine my surprise and delight to learn that *She Sparkles* received one of ten "Joyful Among Us Blog" awards in the Blessed Aroma
Top 100 Christian Women Blogs from 2009 hosted by Internet Cafe.

Most Joyful Among Us Blog ~

This gal always sees her coffee cup “half full” and the joy just pours out of her site. Her joyful attitude is what keeps you coming back for more!


Wow~ I am very humbled and blessed by this award. I started this blog as a way to share with others the amazing work God has done in my life ~ and hopefully encourage and inspire others on their daily journey!! I definitely didn't set out to win any awards! But to know that *She Sparkles* is helping to spread more *JOY* in the world blesses me more than you know!

I humbly accept this award with much gratitude to the Lord for His miraculous work in my life (if you've not heard of the pit God rescued me from ~ I just typed out my testimony here). To God alone be the Glory!!

Thanks for stopping by *She Sparkles*. Have an amazing, fun~filled, life giving weekend!! :)

With much gratitude~


P.S. Don't worry ~ I'm still thinking through how to mark my 1 year Anniversary!! Do you have any fun ideas?? I'd love to hear from you! :)

Congratulations Cindy! When I think of She Sparkles, I definitely think of JOY! ... joy because of God's great work and its overflow in you. It has been a JOY to be your blog friend this year ... what a treat of 2009.

To celebrate? Hmmm.... I haven't "gone here" myself, but how about celebrating with your first "vlog"? I think it would be your first ...

Have a joy filled, HEALTHY ;) weekend!

Congratulations Cindy! That is awesome!!
hmmm... as for celebrating, what would you normally do for a birthday/anniversary celebration? cake, ice-cream, skinny vanilla latte? A party? maybe you could have a cyber party with cyber gifts. haha! I'm sure you will find a way that suits you perfectly. You are a treasure!! I love calling you my friend.
