Favored1

Updated on July 11, 2017

Staying Blessed & Favored!

That's me, Favored1, aka Favored on Hub Pages or Favored110 on Twitter, but my friends call me Fay.

Glad you dropped by for a visit. Browse through some of my articles and see which ones suit you. Check them out and then drop me a line about your visit.

Winter is over and spring has begun, filled with lots of writing for everyone!

Well, any season is a good time to write. I've been looking at some of the great work here. Looks like it's going to be a prosperous year.

To see what's new follow me on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest & Hub Pages as well as my Daily Favor blog challenges.

A Few Places I Write

November 1st, 2011 is when I joined Squidoo.

August 18th, 2014 I became a writer on Hub Pages.

First online writing was sometime in 2000.

Who is Favored 1 anyway?

First I'm a Christian and that outlines what I do in life. Everything I do revolves around who I am in the Lord, and that is "favored."

I have had many opportunities to do things over the years, which gives me insight to what I write about in my teachings and books. Although my college degrees, diplomas, certificates and awards may be extensive, in the end nothing counts except what I've done for Jesus.

In short:

- pure South Jersey girl and lover of God's great outdoors

- woman of creativity

- wife & mommy to wonderful pets

- teacher of the handicapped

- ordained minister & Christian counselor

- writer & published author

- music lover

- praise and worship leader

- garden and flowers lover

I love to laugh, sing, volunteer and be with friends and family. Christmas, Christmas, Christmas is my passion. Giving gifts to anyone makes me smile. Trying new things excites me and brings me joy.

I love the piano and those who play well. - This could have been me, if I practiced more. OK, a lot more!

For me this is the most beautiful place on earth (so far). - I love visiting Longwood Gardens. Every time I visit I am in awe of the splendor of God's creation.

Every season LG has a spectacular display of the most wonderful and beautiful plants, flowers and trees. At Christmas LG's is all dressed up in its most glorious outfit of bright colors and thousands of lights.

My neighbor's horse used to walk up to the fence to meet and greet us. It would remind me of the old tv show Mr. Ed. So in keeping with our talking horse, this friendly buddy has a question for you.

I Have Earned Purple Star Awards

Purple Star Awards are giving for writing excellence on the web. I have been blessed with almost 2 dozen. Thank you!

Some of My Firsts

Any time you start something new, it becomes a first in your life and journey. I have had many in my online experiences.

The Squidoo Experience 2011-2014

I began my writing on a platform formerly called "Squidoo." For the most part this is reflective of my experience there.

Steven was the first "Lensmaster" (writer) visit ever. Actually HGM was my first visitor to Memory Jar, but I don't know where he was from not being a "Squidooer", so Steven Cousley (from Australia) became my official welcome.

Skiesgreen was the first lensmaster to congratulate me on the Purple Star Lens. Sweet Norma wrote: "Congratulations new squid on your purple star... I had tears and goosebumps when my first one turned up too. It's a very emotional experience..."

My First Angel Blessing came from Virginia aka Vallian, this is when the Angel program was around. At the time I didn't know what that meant, but learned quickly that "it's a good thing. Thank you Vallain.

The 2,000th lens I rated on March 16, 2012 by Lifeboost on Bedtime Battles. I know that Tipi was my 1,500th comment on 3/14/12 at 4:33 am, but I don't know which article.

Milestones & Just Cool Stuff: A rated lens is an article that I personally "liked."

In this section when I refer to a "lens" it means simply a writer's article.

The 2,500th lens/article I rated on April 24, 2012 by mrducksmrnot

The 3,000th lens I rated on June 20th, 2012 was by casquid: fun-facts-of-the-year-1948

My 3,500th lens I rated on August 6th, 2012 was: acupressure-massage-a-natural-way-to-promote-hair-growth by TheBonchy

On August 16th, 2012 I received my 3K Trophy Quizzical King Award

My 3,000th comment on 8/22/12 on kitty222's Neil Armstrong lens

The 4,000th lens rated happened on 9/1/12 while visiting Pastor Cher's lens "10 Things Every Christian Needs."

My 4,500th lens visited was on 10/11/12 as I visited "Betsy, My First Car" written by LaraineRose

I was so pleased that I happened to be visiting Camden's Footprints in the Sand lens when my 5,000th like popped up on the screen.

Wow, 5,500th lens was while visiting Tourist Attractions Amsterdam, Netherlands by KillahBabe on January 18th, 2013.

Now at 6,500! Visited Cat Bedroom Décor on July 2nd, 2013. I was looking for cat furniture, but didn't realize this was people décor of cats! Funny huh?

9/26/13 the little green guy popped up while I was visiting "Blogs I Follow" by Vallain. It was my 7,000th lens I rated.

Neat stuff:


2/17/12 was my 1234th "like" and received 56 points for it. I got it on How to Raise A Duckling by Donita-Marie's lens.

1/12/13 was my 4567th "like" and received 89 points for it. I got it on How to Stop Snoring http://www.squidoo.com/advices-how-to-stop-snoring

3/1/13 I blessed my 1,000th lens "Christian Easter Decorations" by luvsmusic. It was cool, I got a trophy.

2/6/14 visited Create a Backyard Oasis by RenaissanceWoman2010. It was my 7,777th visit.

3/5/14 reached my 8,000th "like" to Luv2help's Black & White/Cream Bedding Sets.

7/8/14 while visiting Sylvestermouse I reached 8,500 likes while "Hangin%u2019 with the Luna Moth".

Angels been 'round your neighborhood?

Why Angels Are Important

In a former place where I wrote there was an "Angel" program. Even though it no longer exists, the "angels" that wrote such kind comments will always be in my heart. That's why I chose to keep this memorial section in honor of those special writers.

Did you like the angel program?

Special Blessings I Wish to Relay to You

Still angels among us.

Memory Jar & Why Christmas were featured in the Nov/Dec The Happy Snowman Magazine 2011. Thanks so much.

Angel Blessings have been given and were greatly appreciated. Even though the program has flown away, we still have angels here.

There are times when we all need a little encouragement along the way, and that's what Squid Angels did. If you have been blessed by any of these people, please take the time to thank them.

I am so glad that there are Angels looking over my shoulders, what about you?

Special thanks for your support over the years: Lifeboost, sockii, Tipi, skeffling, ajgodinho, riff999, tamarakajari, sukkran, goo2eyes, ladymermaid, ErinElise

Very funny. Take a look. - Even though this is funny, please don't do the balloon trick with your pet.
