Friendship + Heart = LOVE Endures ALL

Howdy! It's me, the one and only farm dog, Chuckles!!

Hey, Chuckles here. I was going to take another round of naps but someone just hurled a shoe at me and rudely pleasantly whispered in my ears . . .

“Whoa, what?? You say Francine In Retirement just dropped off this package? Well, open it and let me have a looook . . .*gasp-woof*

King of Kings Friendship Award

Dude, check it out!! It’s the King of Kings Friendship Award! I’ve heard it’s a way of saying thank you for the blessing you are, by willingly choosing from the heart, to walk fully in the beauty of the person  God is conforming you to be by the empowering of the Holy Spirit . . . “

Umm, I’m really tuckered out today folks so here is Sunshine to follow-up on my assignment. *(I love you guys, but I love my naps more. Sorry, just being Chuckles.)

Hey, Sunshine here! Thank you so much,  Francine In Retirement,  for this honorable blessing and thinking about Simply Charming.  Gee, I really am at loss for words so let me say . . .

Because this Friendship Award comes with no attachments, allow me to pause a moment and pour my thankful heart out to all the blog friends who bring so much support here. Thank you for your gift of  time as you visit, read and share your thoughts through the conversations here.  We all know how wonderful it is to have followers and the encouraging discussions that follow after sending out a post.

I just have one simple thing to say:

Francine In Retirement




As you will see in a minute, I did  fail to paste the original text that came with this blessing–my apologies and my bad.  I have no excuses except: one has to create from the heart and,  if you really must see the original copy, check it out here:


So, to all of you who would like to take home the King of King Friendship Award, I am giving it to you as my appreciation gift for being a blessing in my life.  Just copy the LOVE ENDURES ALL image–before Chuckles decides to chew it up–and paste it on your site! Easy,  and may you be blessed beyond measure!

Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble. ~Ecclesiastes 4:9-10

Thanks Francine and thanks guys, for saving me from falling alone!

God bless you!!

Sunshine xoxo

    Great post. Thank you for the shout out. You did exactly what you were suppose to do. Accept and give from the heart, no strings attached. We are at our best when we act as the special individual person with our own special gift to offer to one another.

    Congrats to you, Sunshine! I have this one too, and it’s my fave!! I SO love the Eccl verse–but could you tell me which translation it is, because I’m really loving the last part (it’s making me chuckle over a very recent “oops” with God)! God bless you today–love, Caddo

        Thank you, Sunshine–I think I need to buy a copy to add to my stack. You can’t have too many Bibles, I always say (to justify the shopping trip!). Love to you, Caddo


      • Sunshine says:

        Lol Caddo! For some it’s bibles, others shoes but going shopping for whatever the obsession is always therapeutic and painful to the budget! Haha . . . have yourself the weekend to remember!! 🙂

      Hey Ansuyo! If, and when, my staff writer Chuckles decides to get his big body up from all his naps, maybe I can coax him to get on this assignment. *sigh* hard to find good help these days . . . I think we need to invest in a jet plane so these taggers can’t find us! 🙂 lol!

    Congratulations with the award. I really like the way to make it about friendship in general and about how great it is to have so many different friends here on the blog sphere. A great post.

      Isn’t it wonderful in the blog world, Otto? Blogging should be prescribed by physicians as the drug free way to cure anyone suffering from depression or boredom. Lol! Post away your problems, I say! 🙂 I appreciate you Otto! Thanks for sharing your thoughts and have a blessed Easter.
