Holiday Giveaway


I couldn't resist. So I gave in to temptation and I'm joining the Internet Cafe's Holiday Expo and doing another giveaway. This time I have a cute little knit purse and a CD of classical music—Handel to be exact. The CD includes 'The Hallelujah Chorus', 'Glory to God and 'And the Glory of the Lord' –all from The Messiah, as well as other pieces.


Leave me a comment with your favorite verse(s), or the ones that you keep returning to at this point in your life. And yes, I'll ship overseas! You have until next Friday morning, December 12th, to enter, when I'll randomly draw and post the winner. (The Cafe will also be posting a list of the winners over there! Neat, huh?!)

On a different note:

Something that I DID say 'No' to was to giving away my copy of Andrea Boeshaar's novel Love Finds You in Miracle, Kentucky. Sorry, but I just could not be parted with my copy of that. Here's why: IT'S A GREAT BOOK and I collect good books. This is one that's definitely good enough to keep and read again, and my two girls will greatly enjoy it, not to mention my mother and my sister(s). My copy will see a lot of miles before it's retired to the book shelf—that's just how it goes for the good ones.

In Love Finds You in Miracle, Kentucky, Meg Jorgenson breaks free from a bad relationship and steps into a life she's only dreamed of. A life of family, belonging, and love. She didn't intend to fall in love, in fact, that was one of the last things she wanted, but God had other plans for her. A wheelchair bound student captures Meg's heart with her sweet spirit and vivacious personality, and her widowed father is interested in Meg, but they must work through their pasts before they can move into a future together.

The characters are real and wonderful to get to know and I really wish that I had a grandmother just like Meg's. I'll be looking for more of Andrea Boeshaar's books! So, if you need a gift idea, Andrea's Book, Love Finds You in Miracle, Kentucky is a great idea!
Dont forget to enter the drawing for the purse and CD giveaway by leaving me a comment!

  5. I went through and read all the scriptures on healing last week, and this is one I love to read over and over because of Jesus' simple response:

    "A man with leprosy came and knelt before him and said, 'Lord, if you are willing, you can make me clean.'
    Jesus reached out his hand and touched the man. 'I am willing,' he said..." (Matthew 8:2-3a)

    LOVE that promise! And thanks for the give-away opportunity...wonderful gifts!!

  10. Patty...I'm a James and Isaiah kind of gal....can't wait to meet them one day...

    My fave is Isaiah 58: 9- 10
    Then you will call, and the LORD will answer;
    you will cry for help, and he will say: Here am I.
    "If you do away with the yoke of oppression,
    with the pointing finger and malicious talk,

    and if you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry
    and satisfy the needs of the oppressed,
    then your light will rise in the darkness,
    and your night will become like the noonday.

    It gets me every time...
    peace Patty!

  16. We are studying Mt6 on Wed nights, and last night was the passage that includes "let your 'yes' be 'yes' and your 'no' be 'no'". I have had it come back to me a couple times even since last night.
