Of course, I had my day planned out to the minute today ~ haircut, Starbucks with a friend, prayer/prep for tomorrow's speaking engagement, hot lunch & recess duty, etc...~ but that plan just went out the window!! Instead I will look for and enjoy Plan B...whatever that may be!
So while the kids are out building snow forts, here is a Weekly Recap and Giveaway Announcements! :)
Monday I had the chance to re-connect with my friend and author, Shauna Niequist (The picture was taken by Sarah, my 5 year old, thus the weird angle :) )
The winners of Shauna's book Cold Tangerines are:
1. Diane Walker
2. Courtney @ Women Living Well
3. Jenny C.
4. Elisa @ Extravagant Grace
Also, the winner of my Kids Book Giveaway from Zonderkidz is Jennifer Knapp! Jen and her family are in the process of adopting a beautiful little girl from Ethiopia. (You can read more about their journey here.) I get goose bumps thinking about Jen and big sister Sahara reading to Ayantu "You are safe! You are loved!" Enjoy the new books, Knapp Family! :)
A huge thank you to all who entered! :) If you are a winner, please send me your mailing information and I will get the books out to you soon! :)
And lastly, just to prove I am in the Christmas spirit (even though I still have pilgrims on my snow covered porch)...here are some pics from a beautiful Christmas Candlelight I attended last night at Sunshine Church!
A huge thank you to Camy for creating such a beautiful table for us and baking such wonderful treats!!
Our table was hosted by my dear friend Mary Lucas (center) and my "date" was my mom (in red). What fun! :)
It was so fun to see so many Bible Study friends! Here I am with my dear sister in the Lord Diane!
And lastly, tomorrow morning (Saturday, December 5th) I have the opportunity to share at Brookside Church's Tour of Tables. If the Lord brings me to mind, would you please pray for this event. They are expecting 500-550 women ~ and I would love to lift the morning up in prayer from start to finish! (I'll be sharing from 10:45 AM - 11:30 AM Michigan time). May the Lord give me everything I need to serve these precious women well!!! I'll keep you posted!
Well, the kids are in and asking for hot chocolate!! The snow day continues!! What do you have planned for this weekend?? I'd love to hear from you!!!
May the Lord bless you with a fresh measure of His peace and His presence!! Enjoy your day!!
