An Awesome Giveaway! (And Welcome!)


First of all, welcome to all of you who are here today after reading the Proverbs 31 Devotion. I appreciate your visit!

Several weeks ago, I wrote this post and linked to this cross, which was what I asked my husband for last year and happily received. I am still not sure how I found this cross, but I was so glad I did. I still wear it often-- it is the perfect piece for moms-- beautiful yet looks great with those "errand running outfits" we often wear! And because it's silver, it goes with everything! Plus you can't beat the significance of each piece.

So, I was pleasantly surprised when I received an email from Lori Catlin Garcia expressing her appreciation for linking to her website-- apparently a lot of you guys ventured over there to check it out! When she wrote to me, I wrote back and asked her if she would be interested in doing a giveaway. I was even more pleasantly surprised when she wrote back and said yes!!

And so, my wonderful readers, thanks to Lori's generosity, you have a chance to win a cross! You could win one to give as a gift to someone special in your life this Christmas, or one to keep as a gift to yourself. Maybe you need that constant reminder that He is the One who calms the storms. Or maybe you need PEACE in today's economic tough times.

Lori had this to say about the contest:
We would LOVE for them to enter by submitting a short story, but they don't have to do that to win. It is, however, a great opportunity for aspiring writers to get some exposure. Also, if I use someone's story as inspiration for a cross, they will get the first piece produced from the line.

I want to publicly thank Lori for graciously doing this and urge all of you to venture over there and enter for your chance to win!! (NOTE: This contest is different in that you have to go to her site to enter-- leaving a comment here does not qualify you.)

To enter, click on this link. I can't wait to find out who wins!!! Lori will email the winners, but I will also announce it here just as soon as she tells me who the winner is. I am praying for the perfect person to win it.
Pin It!

Thank you for this opportunity. I just wrote something down now and am heading over to post it. I think I will post it on my blog too and send my readers over here!

Thanks, Mary Beth, for continuing to point people to Jesus and for continuing to lift Nick in prayer. Shew! We are in the depths of the valley this THanksgiving weekend. Nick has not woken up since yesterday. He is not responding when we talk. I just don't know what God's plans are. We have prayed so hard for a miracle. I believe God is able to totally heal anyone He chooses. It is just so hard to think that His ways may not be mine. Please keep lifting our family up to our heavenly Father.
Love, Tammy

Don't know what's going on, nor do I need to, just please let Tammy know she is in my prayers.
