The Second Golden Heart Award

Updated on March 6, 2013

A Golden Heart I did receive


From Blondey of Hubpages

Blessings of fun

Good hearted one

Blondey memorialized me

With her softly veil

Of sweet echoes

That makes my heart swell

Thank you my sweet Blondey

Giving me the sweet breath of victory

And the basking in glow

To pass this

Golden

Heart

Award

To my favorite few

Oh there are so many

With a golden heart

With all our ancient cheers

That blends with a rose of laughter

Now who I say

Some music to ponder


Us sisters

Us Sisters We Are!

Us Sisters on the hub

laying our lives to save the other

singing the praises of so many

Us sisters stick together

Hey soul Sister

Soul Sister!

Hey sister we love each other!!

with memories we have loved

holds us together

to be noticed.

So many hearts of gold out there..


Pondering and wondering and here it comes

THE GOLDEN HEART AWARD #2

Goes to

She has a heart the size of Alabama

Sweet as gold

That’s weeps to the magic moon

Sings of glory in her heart

Holds to love on a silly night

From God’s soft whisper

Comes her song

Yes you are right

Her name is Faith..

Us girls just want to have fun

FAITH REAPER yes she is


We all love the sweet of chocolate

Like the sweet of Faith’s golden heart!

Forgotten rainbows

Singing her praises

Is our Faith throughout the ages……

http://faithreaper.hubpages.com/

Live for something . . . write your name in kindness, love, and mercy on the hearts of thousands you come in contact with . . . you will never be forgotten. Thomas Chalmers

Faith, now it is your turn to pass on this GOLDEN HEART FOR ONE


Uptown girl

Faith You are a blessings

Your our uptown girl

If I could sing to you

I would sing BILLY JOEL

How precious you are!

      God bless you Faith.. how true.. I was told by someone that had been homeless that what bothered them the most was how people just looked through them never at them. like they were just not there

      Be blessed this wonderful day

      Debbie

    • Faith Reaper profile image

      Faith Reaper 4 years ago from southern USA

      That is so true Debbie. When we serve others and love them, one will see the face of our Lord in the streets when serving the homeless and downtrodden and serving in women's prison ministries, that is where I have been truly blessed in this lifetime. After being convicted by the Holy Spirit to serve the homeless around the building in which I serve downtown in the City, I was the one who received a blessing, as they are humans not garbage, and just as those women coming out of prison, without judging them, but loving on them on showing Christ's love to them, and in turn, He, our Lord God will show up mightily, as I have been a witness to such.

      God bless. In His Love Always, Faith Reaper

      Nellieanna,

      Have you met Jackie Lynnley, she is an amazing poet, and the third "Golden Heart" you would love her poetry. It is beyond amazing. Every now and then I will write something "fun" but I am a non-fiction writer and write from my life experiences and how the Lord has worked in my life, i.e., healing me of breast cancer, answers to prayers, giving me strength to understand about my dad who suffered with PTSD after returning from the wars, my sweet mother,and the issue of verbal abuse, all serious life issues, which is the real reason I am on here to share of those experiences and to show love to others unconditionally.

      God bless. In His Love, Faith Reaper

      Nellieanna,

      What a delightful and truly lovely person you are no doubt, and one whose heart is pure and golden! You are most welcome as a part of the "sisterhood" here at HP! We are all united in love and can have fun too!

      What a delight that would be for your EmpireMike to be back on HP. Here's to all your dreams coming true in this lifetime. We are blessed to read your magnificent poetry!

      Hugs and love, Faith Reaper

      Dear Debbie and Faith - - You're both exemplary gals in all ways! And you do me honor. Thanks for welcoming me into this special sisterhood.

      Of course we girls just want to have fun! My mantra is "If it can't be fun, why do it?" I confess I've had to explain and defend that to some folks who mistook it for utter foolishness. Of course I'm not saying to ignore the real and serious things, but only to see the fun in even those. After all, everything reflects how we see it, really. If we think "If it can't be gloomy, why do it?" - sure enough, that's how everything we see and value will be!! (Foolishness, at the same time, is what I'm about in many ways! hehe. Why else would someone 'waste good time' just trying to make things prettier or more fun or happier? I can easily spend all day and all night on some kind of foolishness like that!)

      Yes, Deb - my EmpireMike is one of my most favoritest people. He'll be back on HP, I hope. Maybe if we all simultaneously think a wish for him to be, he will 'hear' our wish & appear! I believe in such thought-power!!

      Hi Marlene (lovedoctor),

      Thanks so much. I apprecite your kind words. It really wasn't a t-shirt, just a summer top, but thanks anyway. LOL When it was on my profile pic, at least my score covered my underarm! LOL Blondey is a sweetheart to have been the intiator of such an award and then had given it to our precious friend Debbie, who then passed it on to me. Debbie picked some interesting music videos, as I never thought of myself as an Uptown girl, as I live in a small town in the country. LOL However, I do work in the city. However, I do love "Girls Just Want to Have Fun," as my granddaughters and I dance and sing to it all the time when they are up at our house. They bring me a lot of joy no doubt! Now, just today, I have passed it on as well.

      Hugs to you from my heart to your heart all the way to Flordia.

      God bless. In His Love, Faith Reaper

      Aaauuuwww, my lovely South African Sister, Martie,

      Is is so wonderful to be able to connect with friends across the world!

      Your lovely comment is, to me, as breathtaking as the sunsets in South Africa to warm the soul. If I were there in South Africa, I would call my friend (well on the other hand, close your eyes and we will spend a day together as friends in South Africa) and here is what I have planned for a day with my South African sister (YOU). After packing a picnic basket, as it is going to be a day from sunrise to sunset, so we will need to get an early start and go to Cape Town and on up to Lion's Head to see one of South Africa's most breathtaking sunrises. I read about the sunrises and sunsets in South Africa once and saw the most gorgeous photo of a sunset -so breathtaking to warm one's soul, just as your comment has done for me this day. Then it's time to head to Clifton Beach to just relax or watch, intently, for the "green flash" ---a green light from the setting sun. As you know, I am sure, the phenomenon where green light from the setting sun is refracted from across the surface of the ocean. It might be time to have a glass of Merlot or whatever is my friend' choice. Then to top off a most spectacular day spent with a cherished friend and to possibly have a treat in store by heading back to Lion's Head and from her craggy shoulders, witnessing the sun set and moon rise simultaneously---oh, what a lovely time spent this day with my lovely South African friend.

      You are lovely.

      Hugs and love always, Faith Reaper

      Deborah, you've picked THE hubber in Hubville with the goldest of golden hearts. I may not be one of you US-sisters, but believe me, I can feel the warmth of Faith's golden heart all the way warming my own. Faith is a beautiful lady and one of only a few Christians I know who manage to beam the pure love of God as described in the Bible and interpreted by me.

      Well done, Deborah, and congratulations also to you and your heart of gold for being the owner of Golden Heart #2.

      Oh, precious "Golden Heart" Blondey, you are an angel straight from heaven above right here on this Earth no doubt about it. Thank you for sharing God's love which is so abundant in your heart, it just has to overflow out onto these pages to all others. I love your God-given gift of writing and I praise Him that you share it with us all to bless us and more importantly, to glorify Him!!! You have caught His eye with your Christ-like love here on HP. Oh, thank you so much for telling me that precious heart, as I did not know it, and you have placed a smile on my face with such kind words to me.

      You're beautiful inside and out, as one can always tell from what is coming out of our hearts, where true beauty lies.

      God bless you real good!!! Please know what an amazing talent you are with your writing and in sharing your love here. I am so blessed to know you and read your poetry. I hope you also know that you are more valuable than any rare gem on this planet, especially in His eyes.

      In His Love Always and Forever, Faith Reaper

      NOW, I know I must pass on this beautiful and loving gift of your "Golden Heart" that you have passed on to me so graciously, to another.

      @ LaThing, thank you so much for being a dear and devoted friend. I have always love reading your creative writing. You are a beautiful person and awesome poet and writer, who I am blessed to know!

      @ PS (pastraubie), Love to you, my dearest Sister in Christ, who is always sending Angels my way. You are dear and near to my heart. Your heart is pure gold too. Your love for others is evident in all you write and your compassion shows your true heart, which is oh so very lovely. Thank you for your loving support and just being YOU, a really good friend, who I am blessed to have as a friend!

      @ Hi my sweetest southern, beautiful as a delicate flower of a friend, Jackie, you are always so supportive in always praying, not only for me, but all others, caring enough to even go out of your way to do research on health issues and sharing via email, and your writing is stellar, and I praise Him for you and your friendship. Love you so very much, my Sister in Christ and friend for life!

      @ Nellieanna, you are so very gracious, kind and oh so wise, and you have a golden heart that shines so brilliantly throughout Hubpages through your stellar writings and thoughtful and caring comments. You inspire me so very much. Love your giving spirit and heart so much, please know.

      @ Hi wetnosedogs, you are such a delightful friend, who I do so enjoy reading, especially about all of your wetnosedogs (my buddy Roscoe - he does such a great job helping you out all of the time) and those fabulous book reviews! You're the best. Thanks for such lovely comments here.

      @ Hi my dear friend Joseph (Lord De Cross), I am so glad you have joined in this beautiful gift Debbie has so graciously bestowed upon little ole me! I am so humbled. Thank you for your continued friendship, and your pure heart of gold too. Please know, I will never forget all of your support of me and my writings since I first signed up here on HP last April. (I certainly was clueless then about a lot). If it were not for you, I would not know and cherish many, many of the very friends here that I have come to love and adore. So, I thank you for that and I will always remember and cherish you for your friendship. I am so thrilled you have stopped by this day. Isn't Debbie just a beautiful jewel to love and have as a very special friend in this life! Friendship is a very special kind of love.

      God bless you all. I love each and every one of you for your uniqueness and special friendships. In His Love Always and Forever, Faith Reaper

      Debbie - Thank you, love! I feel a part of ya'll sistas club, 'cept I sort of balance on the momma fence, especially since Martie formally named me her cyber momma! Main thing is, the kindredship is very precious and real. Thank you!

      If my beloved Michael Hay (EmpireMike) - my real-life stepson - will ever get back on HP so we can all hug and love him up, you must meet him, too. He's one of the bro's, you see. It was when he came onto HP that I met many of the sistas, in fact, when they discovered him and we all gathered 'round. But the club has expanded - or more in it have shown up in my world, for which I'm so blessed!

      He lives in a small town in Colorado and bought a sort of heritage house there which has commanded much of his time and energy. But I hope to see him back online. He's an excellent photographer as well as writer.

      Hi my dear friend, mollymeadows,

      Thank you so much. I appreciate your kind words and your friendship, especially. You have been of great support to me through your heartfelt prayers during the time of my mother's illness and then during my great loss, when she went on to be with our Lord a week before Christmas. I treasure you, as you also have a tremendous heart of gold!

      Blondey is such a loving one, who loves as Christ loves, and she thought of this heart-warming award, and then passed it on appropriately to one so deserving, my precious friend, Debbie, who passed it to me! I am so humbled and touched my all, and love you all so much.

      God bless you. In His Love, Faith Reaper

      @ My dearest Mary, yes, HP is truly such a loving community here and for me to have met you and countless other talented writers and loving persons is truly a beautiful gift. I am amazed at just how many wonderful friends I have met here just since last April when I joined. All are so very supportive and care deeply for others, not only here, but in this world. Thank you from the bottom of my heart to your golden heart for leaving such a wonderful comment here. You're the best, and I believe I may have Joseph to thank, as I remember reading your comments on his hubs, so I had no choice but to read your amazing hubs, and I am so very thankful I did!

      @ My dearest friend Linda (Irc), whenever your lovely face, with that big beautiful smile pops in, I am always thrilled and blessed beyond measure. I hope you know just how very special YOU are . . . one with a golden heart of your very own, who without a doubt knows the meaning of loving others with your whole heart! You will always hold a very special place in my heart.

      Hugs and love to you both on this beautiful day,

      Faith Reaper

      Hello this morning to one of my favorite "gal pals" and "soul Sistas" Maria (marcoujor),

      You are so precious to me with all the love you have shown to me here on HP, as well as through those difficult times with the loss of my sweet mother, especially (always checking on me, sending such loving cards through the mail, and blessing me with your autographed book, "Kylie's Blossoms" which my granddaughters thoroughly enjoy and I enjoy reading with them----such a joyous time for us now and for our lifetime, as it will continue to be read and shared with their children and so on and so on! You really know what it means to love and be that true friend, who loves at all times. Words can never express all of the love I have in my heart for your GOLDEN HEART.

      Debbie has truly chosen the best rendition here of "soul Sista" no doubt! Debbie, too, loves at all times, as a true friend does love.

      Blondey, has indeed, created a beautiful award, and with a beautiful heart such as she possesses, it is no surprise! She is beautiful inside and out!

      She and Debbie both love just as our Lord does, unconditionally and from their hearts, and I praise His name for them!

      I also thank Him for your special friendship.

      Hugs and love to you always my dearest friend, Maria.

      Deb..it's as if you read my mind - i was just thinking that i hope Faith gets that sticky sucker very soon- i can't think of anyone who deserves it more!

      Our Faith lights up the hub - she's like a thousand watt bulb that shines a soft yet strong light directly into one's heart - and immediately lightens the load..

      i am lucky to have met her - and YOU- which goes without saying, Deb - You are a soul in the world that i immediately connected with..

      most definitely a 'sista'..

      up and sharing, my friend.. a beautiful tribute to a beautiful woman!

      Oh, my goodness, Debbie, what have you done my precious friend! I just got in late and was about to turn in and decided to check my email one last time before going to bed, and what a delight I have found before my very eyes! I am so grateful for YOU, my sweetest friend with the "Golden Heart" like no other!!! You're the best ever and I am so thankful for our friendship. This is beautiful. The tears are flowing. I am so touched my just how much you do love and give of yourself to others each and every day. You are always such an inspiration to me, not only with your amazing writing, but being a beautiful person inside and out----the real deal! My heart is overflowing with love for you and this wonderful community here at HP, so very loving and encouraging.

      I want to thank you for introducing me to the lovely and oh so talented writer and beautiful person, blondey, who has awarded the "Golden Heart" to a most deserving YOU! She, herself, is deserving of such as she has a most loving heart straight from heaven above too.

      I love you so much and we are sisters, all three!!!

      All the music choices here are just perfect for me and fun! My granddaughters and I always dance to "Girls Just Want to Have Fun!" hahaha ----how did you know?

      I have the biggest smile on my face this night from the love you have shown me. I am so very humbled.

      Voting way up to the heavens and sharing, of course! hahaha

      You are right there are so many here on HP with truly loving and "Golden Hearts" and I know I must pass this lovely heart on to another.

      Debbie, you know what it means to love, that agape love like our Lord. You have comforted me during difficult times and during a great time of loss and have cheered me on here in writing. You know the meaning of what it means to be a true friend at all times. I cherish your friendship and adore you.

      God bless you. In His Love Always and Forever, your Sister, Faith Reaper
