God grant you the light in Christmas, which is faith;
the warmth of Christmas, which is love;
the radiance of Christmas, which is purity;
the righteousness of Christmas, which is justice;
the belief in Christmas, which is truth;
& all of Christmas, which is Christ.

Surprise Giveaway!!!

Good morning everyone!!!

I purposely didn't advertise that I was going to have a giveaway because I wanted it to be a surprise   : )   I decided a week or so ago that when my blog reached 20 followers I would have a giveaway ... but that it would not be the typical type of giveaway where the giveaway item is shown, people tell others about the giveaway, & you get an influx of new people signing up to follow your blog just so they can have a chance to have their name picked to win a freebie.  I wanted my first 20 followers ... you are all very dear to me ... to have an equal chance at getting a little surprise ... so I wrote each follower's name on a separate same-size square of paper, folded them up, tossed them in a bowl, shook them around, & picked one out before writing this   : )   I won't tell what the item is because I want the winner to be surprised when she gets it, but I will ask that she post a photo of it on her blog when she receives it ... if she doesn't mind doing that ... & then I will post a photo of it here in case you do not follow that particular person's blog which, incidentally, you SHOULD because it is a WONDERFUL one   : )   So ... without any further ado ... the winner is ... ANGELA at THRU NANA'S WINDOW!!!  Congratulations Angela!  Please email me with your mailing address   : )
