Tomorrow, many of us will celebrate a special day....Mother's Day. Hubby and I just got back form the grocery store while choosing some of my favs for supper tomorrow night. We'll be grilling out steaks, enjoying baked potatoes, green beans,yummy rolls and banana pudding ice cream for dessert. We do not eat like this often, but when we do, I just love it! My sweet Mama will celebrate with us.
This will be another first for us without Daddy. The holidays, birthdays, and anniversaries leave a yearning in my heart. I wish that he could be with us just the way he used to, but I know the joy that he is experiencing in heaven is better than any celebration we can ever imagine this side of heaven! And that my sweet friends, brings me so much peace!
Speaking of peace, my darlin' friend Elaine at Peace for the Journey has sent me her new book to share with you on my blog! I hold in my little 'ol hands a copy of this amazing book that I am going to soon place in the hands of one of you all, my bloggy friends! I LOVE give-aways, and am so excited to share this one with y'all.
Here's what I want you to do. First, leave me a comment as to what truly gives you peace in your life. Then, hop over to Elaine's blog and share that with her as well. I am really looking forward to reading your comments as I know others are too. Y'all, Elaine has poured her heart into this book. I read just a bit of it in carpool line yesterday....my quietest time of the day! No interruptions! I love those precious times. It was just me, the book, and God in my mini van in the quiet before the last bell rang. As I read, God tugged on my heart strings. The tears welled up in my eyes, and I searched for the box of kleenex (which was stuck in the very back of the van!)
This is one of those books that I will read and reread. I will ponder and pray and search my Bible for Scripture that Elaine has referenced. This is a book that will encourage you. This is a book that will bless you. This is a book that I want to share with you. I will let you know who will get this wonderful book on Friday, May 14. I cannot wait to hear your comments!
The winner of Elaine's book is Three Blessings!!! If you will email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your address, I will get your book in the mail to you ASAP! Thanks to you all for your wonderful comments. Hugs!
