Two Winners

Did you have a nice long Thanksgiving weekend? I sure did. I have so much to be thankful for. One of them is this train, which keeps the kids entertained for hours on end.

Another one is all of you lovely friends who read this. Thank you so much for every wonderful, meaningful, honest, and funny comment you have made, here on the blog or otherwise. And a special thanks to Heather, who has generously offered to add one of her books to the drawing, so that we could have two winners! Thanks, Heather. I love you, and am thankful that you obeyed the Lord's call to write your story in book form. 

And so, our first winner will receive a copy of "Dancing on My Ashes" with the bag and the second winner will receive the book from Heather and no bag, because I played with my family all weekend and didn't touch my sewing machine. But take heart, second winner. The book could change your life; the bag, not so much. 

Okay, dum da da daaaaaaaaa! I prayed over this drawing, like I always do, and the first winner is Vivian! Congratulations to Vivian, my sweet friend from Kansas. We used to do church together back in the day and she and her husband were always so faithful and devoted to the Lord. I hope you enjoy the book, Vivian.

And our second winner is Sarah, also from back in the day! Congrats to Sarah, who used to be a leader and teacher to me in the days of my youth. But she is not old. No, no. She is still the same age she was when she was my youth leader, right, Sarah? And I know Sarah has a heart for people and will see that this book gets into the hands of her friend, who needs to read it. 

Now, if you didn't win, and want to read the book, you can find it easily on Amazon. Ask for it for Christmas! You won't regret it. 

Next up, I'm ready to overcome. I shall not be overcome by the circumstances of my life and neither shall you, my friend! Come with me on my seven part journey of overcoming.

P.S. I love you.  


  1. Oooohhh, I'm so excited. I haven't won anything in years. This is so special, because it's from you. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

  2. I'm sooo excited, too! This is too much fun. Sarah and I live in the same town and we've been wanting to get together anyway, so it's all meant to be. YAY! Sarah, you don't want me to make a bag, but I'll give it with a hug :) Rachelle, I'm sitting on the edge of my uncomfortable Panera chair waiting to hear more of your story.

  3. I am SO excited as well!! Thank you both (Rachelle and Heather) so very much! Heather - just name the day and I will meet up with you. I love Panera and live very close to the one on Campbell, if that works for you. We do so much need to get together and catch up on life. Looking forward to it!

  4. I'm SO excited too, because I want to be in the So Excited Club!
