A GIVE-AWAY...sharing the blessings!

      Christmas is over now, but I want the spirit of giving to live on through this new year about to emerge. I am so very thankful for the precious gift God gave us on that first Christmas day - His Son Jesus. The day that divided the calendar and time began anew.
As I looked at the china cabinet and tried my hardest to cram, shove, pile, and rearrange the cups, saucers, and plates to fit, it hit me...not only does my life overflow with blessing, but my china cabinet is overflowing too! So, in the spirit of giving, I have decided to practice what my Father has taught give.

      Every month of this fabulous new year - 2012 - I will give away a teacup. My prayer will be that whoever wins it, will be blessed as much (or more) than I have been. That they will be reminded every time they fill it with tea, that there is One who desires to fill their lives to overflowing with blessings from above. He gives good and perfect gifts... like love, joy, and peace.

I hope it will be you!

Here is the January GIVE-AWAY...

      All I ask is that you mention the GIVE-AWAY in your comments during the month of January and make sure I have a way to contact you when you win. If you would like to become a follower, that would be great. I love meeting new friends!

The winner will be announced on January 31, and the new GIVE-AWAY will begin on that day.


"Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning." James 1:17

  20. Hi I'm very pleased to meet you, my name is Bobbi Ann. I'm so happy that I've come across your lovely blog and have the chance to meet you today. I have to say that it really was by accident but I know our Lord hand His hand in it.
    I'm a kidney patient and have been sick most of my life. I've been able to meet so many wonderful and caring people in my journey in life because of my illness. The Lord has blessed me with 4 wonderful sons and 7 of the most precious grandchildren.
    Recently, I've had a hard time with my health and have nurses coming to my home daily to take care of me. Then at the beginning of Dec. I had an electrical power serge come through my home which caused a small fire in which I lost my computer and my box for my TV. Then on Christmas Eve day I had to put one of my three sweet fuury babies to sleep. I've been a bit on the depressed side and then I found your blog and read your beautiful post...thank you! It's absolutely what I needed to hear. In the middle of everything that had happened to me I've forgot to remember all the wonderful things that I've been blessed with. So I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for reminding me of all my many blessings!
    If you would be so kind to enter my name in your generous and kind hearted and lovely giveaway I would be most appreciative. Also after I post this I'm going to become a follower. I hope that you have a wonderful day.
    Hugs and many blessings...
    Bobbi Ann Cook
