Starting with Vicki!

This morning, I did a drawing to give away a copy (or digital download) of:

...a book that I wrote about here and reviewed here.

I decided to do the drawing the old fashioned way- with pen and paper-

First, I wrote down all the names:
Then, I folded them and put them in a basket:

Then, I reached in and drew a slip of paper (drumroll............):

And out came the screen name for my friend Vicki!  I am pleased as punch to draw this girl's name- for she was not only the chickkie who sold my old house, and who found us the home we live in now (9 years ago!) but she is a good friend who loves and laughs and lives generously!

Congrats, Vicki! Can't wait to see what God starts in YOU!

I'm pretty sure you're gonna want this digitally, so an Amazon gift card is coming your way!

Praise the Lord!

   How joyful are those who fear the Lord 
and delight in obeying his commands.
 Their children will be successful everywhere;
      an entire generation of godly people will be blessed.
 They themselves will be wealthy,
      and their good deeds will last forever.
Light shines in the darkness for the godly.
      They are generous, compassionate, and righteous.
Good comes to those who lend money generously
      and conduct their business fairly.
Such people will not be overcome by evil.
      Those who are righteous will be long remembered.
 They do not fear bad news;
      they confidently trust the Lord to care for them.
 They are confident and fearless
      and can face their foes triumphantly.
They share freely and give generously to those in need.
      Their good deeds will be remembered forever.
      They will have influence and honor.
The wicked will see this and be infuriated.
      They will grind their teeth in anger;
      they will slink away, their hopes thwarted.
Psalm 112

OK Downloaded book to Kindle.... so I have some good reading coming my way... I think I owe you are penny!! Thank you again so much Amber... as you know we have had a tough time... my faith has wavered even though I know better.... but I have relied upon my faith and renewed my commitment with His terms and mine... I am hoping this will help me as well....It's tough having adults for children that make mistakes... you question yourself on if you did the right thing... heck, I even questioned God and said WHY? The plan HER PLAN was all laid out... why has she deviated so much... made such poor decisions.... I have questioned my God.... he has answered me... by showing my daughter that maybe she HAS made a mistake... she is now considering going back to college AND playing softball again... so let me read this book.... and I cannot wait to meet up for coffee so we can discuss this... maybe some of your other readers would like to do a book club type of thingy on this book... meet for coffeee one AM and we can all chat about it? What do you think? OK THANK YOU AGAIN!! I honestly love you!!! POW right back atcha!
