Small Town Living

The nice part about living in a small town: When you don't know what you're doing, someone else always does.

Out with 2008, bring on 2009 with a give-a-way!

12-30-08 Update: Now come on, and leave a comment...I promise I won't really make you participate. But couldn't everyone use a Chronological Bible:) It's free....no strings attached:-) Pinkie swear! Only one more day to enter!
I had no clue the enormity of my roller coaster emotions. Wow...they were big and all over the place. This Christmas I spent lots of time reflecting on seasons past, seasons present and seasons future. With each thought or memory came either sadness or joy.
I get myself all worked up in the details of Christmas and when it finally arrives...I'm spent;-) Good thing is, I have learned a valuable lesson this Christmas. Stressing over the smallest of details equals disappointment.
Let me introduce you to the only person that will not disappoint.....His name is Jesus! To get acquainted with Him, join me in a little adventure I'm about to undertake in 2009. I just can't seem to find a cute rhyme with 2009:-)
I'm looking forward to 2009! I'm excited to start reading the Bible all the way through. Wendy Pope, speaker from Proverbs31Ministry, is hosting Wordly Wise. I have attempted this feat before, but to no avail. My prayer is that through the support of her blog and you, I will finally have read the Bible from cover to cover. I would love for you to join me and the many others who have purchased these Bibles.
So, please leave a comment and I will randomly pick a winner for a Chronological Bible for your very own. One catch, you must join me in participating with Wendy to read the Bible in 2009! It's been ordered and hopefully will be here by Jan. 01, 2009! Remember the part about me that spells PROCRASTINATE! Better late than never is my motto:) Please forgive me of that flaw....I do mean well.
May God bless you,
Carrie
P.S. The deadline for entry is Wednesday, Dec. 31, 2008. I will announce the winner Thursday, January 1, 2009!

I'm not sure if I can commit since I've just committed to DeeDee's (www.deedee-warren.blogspot.com) bible reading challenge. But I just wanted to stop by and thank you for visiting my blog and for your lovely comments a couple weeks ago...on the Christmas Tour of Homes. You blessed me with your words of encouragement.

Blessings to you in 2009,
Kelly Gerken
