Little Star Giveaway Winner

I am happy to announce that, Laura, you are the winner of the wondeful book Little Star by Anthony DeStefano. 

I will send the book out to you on Tuesday.

Orginal Post


I am overjoyed to share a superb children's Christmas book with you!  The book is Little Star by Anthony DeStefano with illustrations by Mark Elliott.  I really can't say enough about what a remarkable book this is.



I think I could have cried when I read this page.  My friend and I were just talking last week how humbled Jesus was to have been born in a manger and those are the words that come alive right on this very page. 


The story of Little Star has more to it than meets the eye, not only is a story of our Savior's birth but also one of a small star who didn't think he was worthy.  Little Star discovers that his life was worth everything to Jesus and that the King's message is Love.  After realizing this, he is overjoyed and wants nothing more than to shine big and bright!

This will make an excellent read during the Christmas season and beyond.  If your child ever feels unworthy, sad, lonely or ignored, read Little Star and afterwards he or she will feel His joy, love and gratitude!  And I have little doubt you'll want to find a star tree topper!

Anthony DeStefano and I are happy to offer this book to one of you!  Please leave your name in the comment section below and check back on Saturday, November 13 for the winner announcement.  If you would like more than one chance to win you can tweet, facebook or blog about this giveaway.  For each one you do, please list your name in a new comment entry.  Don't forget to come back on Saturday, November 13, 2010!

Seven Quick Takes - Vol. 12

{1}
I'm ordering the Little House on the Prairie books for my niece whose birthday party is next weekend.  I remember loving those books and the show.  My sister and I would watch all the episodes when we came home from school.  What memories.  Not surprising that last night I elected to watch the end of one of those episodes.  The simple life.  Half Pint, Mary, Caroline, Albert, Pa & Ma. 

{2}
Henry has his first birthday party to go to tonight.  Adam, the girls & I are going to eat in the same restaurant.  I wonder how this will fare for the birthday boy because I am not quite sure if Henry will stay with the birthday group but I couldn't let him go without us yet.

I think this is the most beautiful song.


{4}
This sky greeted me the other morning.  I am awestruck every time I am presented with these beautiful colors.



{5}
I praise God for helping my Grandpa over the last week.  He answered obvious prayers with Grandpa being healthy enough through heart failure to receive a pacemaker and hopefully not need valve repair.  I keep praying for the not so obvious.

{6}
Now that we've turned the clock back I've started my hibernation.  I've been looking more at on-line shopping, and my kids think it's cook that they can turn all the lights off in the house for total darkness.  Henry actually gave me his lion {that actually roars} flashlight and said I could do the dishes by flashlight.

Don't forget about Little Star.

Thanks Jennifer!


God Bless!

Multitude Monday Vol. 13

The land of blog has been an absent part of my day lately.  My God, my family, my house, my friends and my exhaustion have been keeping me away.  As it should be (with the exception of exhaustion)?  I haven't been as good as I would like to be about marking my 1000 gifts but I do try to to a moment each day to remember where these remarkable gifts come from.
