A thank you give-a-way!

Today will be a "Thankful Thursday" post....because I want to thank my followers in a special way.  

I never dreamed when I first started writing this blog for HIM....that I would eventually have over 350 followers!!!  That is amazing to me that so many wonderful people want to hear what God might have for me to share!!  I've said this  before....especially a lot in the past few years....I want everything to be for HIS GLORY!!  

As I look back over my life, I realize that so many times HE was holding me....and I didn't even realize it.  HE got me away from situations that HE knew would lead down a path that I didn't need to take....and HE got me away from people who weren't good for me and my relationship with HIM!!! celebrate my precious followers....I want to have a little give-a-way.  
Remember the little owlies that I made using my Dad's old flannel shirt?

 Well....I want to give one of my followers a little owlie of their very own.  It won't have any of my Dad's shirt in it....I'm saving the rest of it for future use....but....I will give the winner the option of letting me know if it will be for a boy, or that I can choose the colors accordingly!!!

So....what do you have to do to be a "winner"?
I get confused when I try to sign up to win something and I'm given way too many leave me a comment letting me know that you are a precious follower....or that you've just signed up....and that's it!!!

Oh....and when you leave the comment....tell me something that you're thankful for!!!

Deadline for leaving a comment will be Saturday night at midnight....and I'll announce the winner on Monday....along with another announcement, too!!!

So....that's that about that!!

Since God has chosen to bless me....
....I want to "pay it forward"!!!
(which is the title of a future post, by the way!!)

In His Most Precious Love....and with mine!!!

  3. I would love to be in the running for one of your precious owl pillows, I am one of your "precious followers".

    Deb, I am most thankful to God for all the blessings he has given me. "He" and prayers for the doctors knowledge from God are why I am here today.

  10. I just found you from Java's blog hop and boy am I glad. Your blog is wonderful. I've read a bit of this and that and am very happy I'm here.
    I wouldn't mind winning your little owl for a new small wee one in my daycare. He's a little boy of less then two and sure could handle having something soft and cuddly while his mama is off flying airplanes and his daddy is making sure we all have electricity.
    Take care nadh God Bless!!

  11. I love to read your blog and the everyday way you talk about our Lord. I love the notion of "It's not odd, it's God".
    God bless you and your family.

  12. Hi Deb,

    I am thankful for my family. The best gift on earth. : )
    Have a good weekend,
    Mary Lou
