Give-aways are Grand

Blogging is so much more fascinating than I ever imagined. Since we all do it for love not money, the give-aways are a real bonus. I figure my chances of winning are far better than winning the lottery (oh- especially because I don't buy lottery tickets!) So I enter every give-away I come across. I met Rachel through Linda's "I See What You're Saying" (otherwise known as "Forget Anything but Visiting Blogs Day" LOL) and she was doing a give-away! Count me in.

I won Rachel's nest of New Orleans prizes and was so excited. But something happened between her posting the package in Lousiana and it's arrival in Florida. The box was almost empty upon delivery. She was horrified and I was sad, as the New Orleans Coffee and Beignent mix were going to bring
Cafe Du Monde to my neighborhood. (My mom always said if I didn't have anything nice to say I shouldn't say anything at all so we will not discuss the "service" of our postal system and issues with numerous federal agencies. Ahem) Rachel felt so bad, but it's not like I'd paid for the goodies so I told her just don't worry about it. But today, UPS brought me a package and guess what? Coffee with Beignets this weekend! WooHoo!
Thank you Rachel, for being an exemplary blogger (she has just started a series on Dave Ramsey's principles) as well as an exceptional person. I am pleased to know you!

Now it's YOUR turn to win. If you haven't read any
books by Randy Alcorn, you should. I read "Safely Home" and it was amazing. He is giving away 3 copies of his book "Deadline" and you have until Oct 24 to enter by leaving a comment. Go HERE for your chance to win. He also writes a fascinating blog.

Thank you, Beverly! Your attitude during the whole post office fiasco was a wonderful testimony to the nature of Jesus dwelling within you! :)
