Final Giveaway and Final Thoughts

Wow, this last month has been an incredible journey and I thank you so very much to all of you that have taken part in my fight for Duncan or in my blog party. When God first ask me to start the fight for Duncan I fought it, I didn't want to do it. I finally said "OK God". The first week of my fight if you remember was a very emotional week for me. Boy the evil one was working on me big time and when I wanted more than anything to call it quits God told me it was time to fight harder. I had no idea the emotional roller coaster this little boy would take me on fighting for him as his Christmas warrior.
God heard my cry though and not only found this precious boy a family in 2 weeks of the Angel Tree but God also blessed me more than I could ever have imagined. This giveaway/fundraiser/fight for Duncan has been sooooooo much fun (after the first week of a fight with God).

If you have taken part in this in any way, even if you have just been reading, you have seen how much fun it has been. You have also seen how many kids have found families through the Angel Tree. You have seen that we have been able to support people in the fundraising to bring their children home.

You know I strongly believe that God handpicked each winner too. Not that if you didn't win that you didn't deserve it but I heard some real "GOD TIMING" with the winners.

Guess what? It's your turn, I am challenging YOU! Become a warrior for a waiting child, fight to raise them a grant fund, fight to find them a family, FIGHT WITH PRAYER. Have your own blog party and support those families that are having fundraisers to bring their kiddos home. Yes, it will cost you to have a blog party but guess what you get out of it? You get to bless a winner with your giveaway, bless the family in supporting them with their fundraisers and better yet you are helping to bring a child home. You don't need to do expensive things just have fun with it and I promise you that you will be the one being blessed. Will you take my challenge? Are you willing to use your blog to change the life of a child?

OK, before I start crying lets get on with the giveaway.

This CD is actually the very first item I chose to giveaway. The Children of the World choir came to our church about a month ago and WOW did they make an impact. They shared a couple stories of kids in the choir and they were orphans that had been through way more than any child should have to go through in their life. We bought a CD that night (not this one) and it has now been played everytime we have gone anywhere in our car for the last month. It is our favorite CD. If you want to check out the website you can go to . I can't wait for someone to win this and be blessed with the powerful worship of these children!

Since I am sitting here with cold feet and hands right now I decided it would be fun to do a second giveaway too. So I am going to give away your choice of coffee or cocoa from the link on my side bar!!!

I have to tell you a little story. When my soap dish came that I gave away last week it came broke in the mail. I emailed the girl (yes, it is a girl not and adult) that makes these. I hated having to email her to tell her because I just wanted to support her in what she was doing. Right away she mailed out a new soap dish but when it came the box was HUGE. I opened it and do you know she sent me the soap dish to replace it, she also sent me a soap dish for ME. I have wanted one of these since I first saw them but I couldn't spend that kind of money on myself so that's why I gave it away in my giveaway because I wanted you guys to have something I wanted. I cried and cried when I saw it. That's not all though, she also sent me homeade soap and 2 pendant necklaces. You can check out her Etsy store here.

Guess what, I'm giving one away!!! I'm not telling what it looks like though it will be a surprise. That's right we are having 3 giveaways!

OK, not really. WE ARE HAVING 4, four names will be drawn tomorrow night!!!

I bought some hair bows from an adoption fundraiser a while back and I have just been holding on to them waiting for something special to do with them and I think this last day of our giveaway is something very special.
