winners, prayer and other random things.

First of all, just so you know, Blogher is in charge of choosing winners for ALL of the giveaways that I do through them.  I personally, LOVE that, it takes a lot of pressure off of me because it IS hard to choose just one, especially since I have a personal relationship with so many of you.  With that said...

Blogher has indeed chosen the first two winners: 

Amy won the Zeo Sleep Manager...yay Amy!
Jenn won the Withings Scale...which she will LOVE!

Yay for you ladies!  There's another great giveaway tomorrow!
Random thing number one: 
70 degrees on January 31?  Yes, please. 
We are playground hoppers.  There are several in our area and if the day is warm enough (tolerable for mom) and dry enough, we go.  With boys, you HAVE to get outside.  Trying to contain their brand of crazy indoors is just a recipe for disaster. 
Random thing number 2:
I can't share what's going on here but once again I am standing on the threshold of HOPE.  If you've been here long, you know what to pray for.  Let's just say, it takes a LOT of work to be STEADY regardless of circumstances and how you are treated.  I give myself a B- so far.  I hope I can share lots of great things soon but for now I am hanging to Romans 12:17, Proverbs 25:22, and Psalm 112:7.
Word.
Random thing number 3:  Maps are everywhere.  Versions of this embroidery are everywhere.  Here's my version. :)

I hope your week is going LOVELY. :) I've been getting up in the wee hours of the mornings to read and pray.  If you have a specific request that I can bring to the attention of Jesus on your behalf, I would be honored to do so...just leave a comment on this post or feel free to email me.   I mean it.  Anything.  Nothing but love here.

I'm a fairly new follower but it amazes me how strong you seem. While struggling with your own issues you are still offering to help others with your prayers. I hope you find whatever it is you're seeking.

I pray that you'll continue to live in hope this year. I've been running to Ephesians 4 a lot myself in the past few months, especially verse 17 to the end of the chapter. It's a hard way to live, but it's the best way. Stay strong!

Crystal,

You are just about the best thing ever. I think you have a beautiful spirit, and I for one, believe you are fulfilling a calling from the Lord on this blog of yours. You do find favor in His eyes, don't you forget that!

This just may be your year my friend!

smooch!

Just started following your blog a week or so ago. I have to say I love it!! I absolutely love your style, and it's great to see another so bold and willing to share their faith. Love it even more!! we have been taking a class at our church on praying as a group - with others. We've also joined a prayer group that has weekly meetings in each others houses. I'm blown away by what God will do when we pray together. and like you said -- for ANYTHING. God is the God of big things and small things. if it's important to us, it's important to Him. :)
