Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket



I am taking a short break from the regularly scheduled updates on life to participate in what looks like a very fun way to get to know other bloggers as well as win cool "giveaways". I am new to blogging. I have enjoyed all the other blogs I have been discovering along the way and hope to get connected to even more blogging friends in the near future.

My friend at Without Fear posted about this grand giveaway and peaked my interest. So I visited Shannon at Rocks In My Dryer and was shocked at all the giveaways just waiting for new homes. I thought I would offer one of my own and keep my fingers crossed at winning at least one of these special gifts!!!!

One giveaway I am definitely entering is the one for $300 worth of Horizon Organic milk from 5 Minutes For Mom. Anyone of us who have children (especially when you have five children!), know how much of a blessing this giveaway would be. My children love their milk!!!

Now to my exciting giveaway... I am offering a "Refreshed and Renewed Goodie Box." I won't reveal the contents of this box entirely but I will tell you it will have plenty to make you feel refreshed and ready for each new day both physically and spiritually. One item that will be included in this giveaway is my all time favorite devotional "Streams in the Desert." God has used this devotion in many of the tired, overwhelming days to refresh me and give me a sense of purpose and focus in my suffering. I hope the person who wins my giveaway will be able to join me in saying..."No matter what comes my way...Still I will say blessed be the name of the Lord"

To enter please post a comment including your email address or blogger id...if you don't tell me how to contact you I can't send you your prize!!!! If you are new to my blog please stay awhile...I hope you will be blessed. To my daily friends thanks for visiting! Sometime Friday evening I will post the winner of the Goodie Box so make sure to comment before then!
