Thank you to Anne at for nominating me for the Candle Lighter Award.

This award was created by Believe Anyway who says it is for bloggers who light a candle in the darkness with their blogs.


You can read more about the award at

Believe anyway writes:  “What does the recipient have to do to accept it? Just accept it and put the Candle Lighter Award badge from my blog onto their blog. Please put the link from this post about my creation of the award in a post on your blog so people can read about it.  What else do recipients have to do? Nothing. If they think someone else is a Candle Lighter, they can give them the award anytime they want and as often as they want. There is no limit to how many blogs you award The Candle Lighter Award to and no limit to how many times someone can receive it.”

If you are looking for good blogs to read, Believe anyway has a list of recipients on her blog. She would like to be sent the links for anyone to whom you pass the award, so they can be added to the list.

I would like to pass this award to some who bring the light of God’s Word through their blogs, encouraging, challenging and blessing those who read them.

I am always greatly encouraged and often challenged by Debbie at Deb’s Blog
Her “simple poems” hold a depth of truth
and never fail to be used by God to bring light. Thank you Deb.

Another who brings light and encouragement is Paulette
with an aptly named blog “A place of worship”
A visit to Paulette will always bring light and encouragement
as well as presenting a challenge.
Paulette already has this award,
but there is no limit to the number of times it can be received,
so thank you Paulette.

Jelillie at Reinventing the We’ll is another whose blogs always bring light
and are a “must read”.

Rob Barkman at Settled in Heaven
has written many extensive blogs on various subjects.
They are not ‘quick-read’ blogs but cover the subject and give a lot of light to anyone who wants a good understanding with plenty of Scripture references.

About meetingintheclouds

I am Cloudwatcher, a 76 year old Christian lady, happily married to a wonderful man for over 50 years. We have five wonderful sons, all with at least one University degree and in top positions in their chosen fields. One son is still single but four have found perfect wives and they have given us five lovely grandchildren. I was born in England and while I'm proud of my English heritage, I am doubly proud to be a true-blue, fair-dinkum Aussie. My husband and I are committed Christians whose first priority is to love and serve our risen Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ. My life story will tell of my journey from abuse to peace. I suffered 22 years of abuse, being constantly told I was totally evil and an ugly freak: no one would ever want me, so I might as well do the world a favour and kill myself.

    It is such a blessing to me to see how the Lord is using you to reach others. Both of us are like minded in realizing that without the Lord “(we) can do nothing”. He has used you as a vessel to deliver to me wonderful, God-glorifying, thoughts for my day and encouragement thru example.

    All I can say is “thank you” for your faithfulness in allowing the Lord to use you as a candle to enlighten the world for Him.

    May He continue to bless you and your blog.

    Thank you for nominating “Settled In Heaven” … it is His blog and I am thankful He has chosen to use me to write it. It is a privilege to be used by Him (when He could have chosen to use anyone).

    May the Lord be glorified.



    • It is indeed a privilege to be used by Him. We need no other ‘reward’ but His approval. Just like the crowns we will receive, we lay them at His feet, because they are His. To Him be all the glory.
      What an amazing God!


  5. Debbie says:

    God bless you and thank you for thinking of me with this award! Praising God with you, for what He is doing here in Blog land. love and prayers!


    • You deserve it Debbie. I know you will say, as I do, that it isn’t you, but He who works in you, but I thank you for being the instrument through which He works, using your wonderful, loving nature to bring blessings to others. I know He will continue to use you to His glory here and elsewhere.

    Hi Angela,

    Congratulations to you! You are deserving of each award you have been nominated for. You are such a blessing to those of us who follow your work. Thank you for nominating me for this award, but I must give the glory to God. It’s all about Him, and not about me. I give God praise. Thank you so much for being a blessing and inspiration to me, always! God bless!
