Liebster Award

Hello readers!
Emily from A Purpose and A Promise awarded me the Liebster Award. 

This is the second award I've been awarded, so thank you Emily!

Here are Emily's questions that I have to answer.
1. What's the first word you can think of that starts with R? Rejoice. Oh, that reminds me of this song. 
Rejoice, ye pure in heart, rejoice, give thanks and sing: Your festal banner wave on high, the cross of Christ your King. Rejoice, rejoice, rejoice, give thanks, and sing! 

2. What is the last song you listened to? Be Thou My vision 

Be thou my Vision, o Lord of my heart; naught be all else to me, save that thou art; 
Thou my best though, by day or by night, waking or sleeping, thy presence my light. 

Be thou my Wisdom, and thou my true Word; I ever with thee and thou with me, Lord;
Thou my great Father,  and I thy true son, thou in my dwelling, and I with thee one.

Riches I heed not, nor man's empty praise; thou mine inheritance, now and always;
Thou and thou only, first in my heart, high King of heaven, my treasure thou art. 

High King of heaven, my victory won, may I reach heaven's joys, o bright heaven's Sun!
Heart of my own heart, whatever befall, still be my Vision, o Ruler of all. 

3. What is your favorite thing about blogging? My favorite thing about blogging is being able to be a blessing to other bloggers and non-bloggers, and meeting new friends!  :D

4. Is there a story behind your blog's name? Not really. I like creating precious moments with my family, and capturing the special moments with my camera. :)

  4. Ashley, what fun to read your answers! I love "Be Thou My Vision"! And I'm with you on dark chocolate!

  5. Thank you for tagging me, This looks like a lot of fun! But what does Liebster mean?

    1. My pleasure, Paige!
      I actually didn't know what Liebster meant, so I looked it up. Liebster is a German word meaning “dearest, sweetest, kindest, beloved”. The Liebster Award is meant for bloggers that have a following of under 200 followers. And it does have some rules, I found.

      Put the Liebster Award logo on your blog.
      Answer the questions given and then come up with 11 new ones to ask your nominations.
      Nominate 8 other blogs, let them know you have nominated them and put a link to their blog in your post.
      You must tell all the blogs that you have nominated them.

      Hope this helps you. :)
      Thank you for asking and commenting, Paige. :)
