Hi all!!! We are having a fun week. We'll have to do this again soon. I"m excited to see who's going to win the Grand Prize on Sunday. We have quite a few names in the drawing....Even a cat!!! (I said everyone who posted, didn't I?) And congrats to Kay who won Where the Heart Is by Cindy Woodsmall.
So the Famous Person Question for today is.....
What famous NASCAR driver did Jennifer Taylor's brother-in-law go to high school with?
Tomorrow starts the launch of my first-ever contest week. Come and see what's going on daily, then tune in next Sunday to see who is the recipient of the "Grand Prize."
Before I spill the beans (cliche) on what the "Grand Prize" is I just want to give praise to Jesus for giving us an example to live by to actually win the GRANDEST prize of all. Life eternal.
On a much smaller scale I'm giving away a "Grand Prize" next Sunday. Anyone who posts a comment on the blog from Monday morning Jan 22 through Saturday night Jan 27th will be eligible. You can be entered as many as six times, once a day. If you only make one comment all week you'll only be entered once. (Don't be that person!)
Think of life as a great big puzzle. You know how you try and fit a piece you think will fit into the spot and you push and manuver and it just doesn't go? I think that's how we are with God.

We go to know each other, his wife is as incredible as he is. When he and Annie had to leave, my step-daughter Lisa looked at me and said "those are the nicest two people I have ever met in my life." It's true. And I'm glad G…
Yeah....I don't know what that means. I only know it's true. And how do I know? Picture this...Christmas Eve service at church..taking communion...praying at the altar. A thought breaks into my mind. This is the year of the Lord. What? I think? The year of the Lord? Strange. Shouldn't every year be the year of the Lord? Maybe this is the year of the Lord for me. Maybe I"m supposed to be doing something?
Questions....not sure what was going through my mind. But I finish praying and take my seat.
Fast forward twenty minutes. Service is over..people are wishing each other a Merry Christmas...I go up to Karen and Wendy who are having a conversation just in time to hear Wendy tell Karen....
Well, you know this is the year of the Lord.
I told Wendy about my altar experience and she says maybe the Lord is getting the members of our church in sync for something. We're not sure what it meant, but trust me, it means something. So for now, that's what I"m going on. Trust. Fai…
