girl talk: have posted their acceptance speech. Do pop over there and pay them a visit. And guys, it is ok to drop them an email to congratulate them on their great blog! So here are some extracts from their speech!
They should get another award for the kindest words about my blog anyone has said in their Warnie award. I am at a loss for why they were so nice, but then again years of listening to the man they call dad speak about other people at the beginning of his sermon should have made me realise that the Mahaney family make gracious thanks and complements into an extreme sport. I should say that CJ’s talk at Brighton leaders this year had no less than HALF AN HOUR of introduction, the majority of which was gracious praise…..
So. thank YOU very much girls! Now everyone go right over there NOW and add them to your blogrolls right away!
“It’s been some time since we’ve received an award and never one as prestigious as the ‘Warnie Award.’ Sure, there was Mom’s triumph in the fifth grade spelling bee. Janelle did us all proud when she was named Grand Champion of the junior photography competition at the Montgomery County Agricultural Fair. Kristin received the highest grade in Bible class out of twenty fellow sophomores, but she didn’t even show up for the award ceremony. And I blush to mention my only distinction’the first winner of the ‘Golden Mop Award.’……
So as you can see, Dad and Mom have never had a cluttered mantle. You could put all our combined awards in a box and they would not equal half the value of a ‘Warnie Award.’ So this is a big day for us. Really big.
What? You don’t know what a ‘Warnie Award’ is? Let me explain.
Across the great Atlantic Ocean in the United Kingdom, but only next door on the blogosphere is a respected evangelical blogger named Adrian Warnock Across the great Atlantic Ocean in the United Kingdom, but only next door on the blogosphere is a respected evangelical blogger named Adrian Warnock (Check him out at www.adrian.warnock.info). Sometime ago, he inaugurated the Warnie Awards (Get it Warnock/Warnie?) to recognize fellow bloggers whose sites he deemed worthy enough to share with his readers………
We’re not very good at giving acceptance speeches here at the Girl Talk blog. As you are now aware, we don’t have much experience with this. But in all seriousness, Mr. Warnock, we want to sincerely thank you for the “Warnie Award.” We have such respect for you and your ministry, and many of the distinguished company of “Warnie Award” recipients. We only hope to emulate you in serving and edifying the body of Christ. And we are truly indebted to you for this award. Thank you so very much.
