Oh what a night …

Oh what a night …

I actually went to bed before 11:00 last night.    I don’t think that has happened since maybe the mid 80’s…I kid you not.  I was so excited to get a good nights sleep because I have a BIG weekend ahead.  But sleep didn’t come which may or may not have had something to do with the fact that I gave up Diet Coke but replaced it with tea which rumor has it that it actually has more caffeine than Diet Coke.  Did you like that run on sentence?

Anywho … a storm the likes of which I haven’t heard in a long time blew through and I ended up with two kids in my bed and two kids calling out … one because she thought she heard someone playing drums.  I assured her no one was playing drums but that it was thundering.  And went back to bed.

I’ve had maybe 30 minutes of sleep.

And I’m on my way out of town to speak at the Shearer Hills Baptist Church Womens Retreat this weekend.  The church is in San Antonio, but they are meeting in San Marcos.  I’ve been looking SO forward to this and can’t wait to get down there.

I am thinking I might have to take up Diet Coke again so as not to fall asleep driving there or while speaking.  There is a session tonight and 3 sessions tomorrow.  If you read this before tomorrow, please say a prayer for me as I lead and for the ladies who are coming.  My prayer is that God will speak through me the words that He wants them to hear.

And lastly … I have a winner for the new Don Miller book I mentioned Wednesday.

Chelsea!!  Email me you address and I’ll send your book.  That is once I have caught up on my sleep.  Because I will need all my strength to stand in that line at the post office for upwards of an hour like I do every single time I go. 

I really think I’m gonna need a Diet Coke.

We have a winner …

We have a winner …

First, a quick apology for not posting this yesterday. Having spent a large part of the day in the doctors office with Brittany, I neglected to post the winner for my first ever blog contest!

It was rather exciting (for me). I put your names in a very cute cupcake box that I got at Hobby Lobby (did you hear that Roots and Rings?!). I had Caroline draw the winner but she declined being photographed for the occasion. I had Bill watch … kind of like the official auditor or something. He took his job very seriously.

I wanted to use to pick the winner but when I found out it cost $4.50 … well, I decided Caroline picking a winner was random enough.

So … without further adieu… the winner is …


Send me an email verifying your address and I’ll get your book in the mail.

And for the rest of you … tonight I begin Donald Miller’s new book “A Million Miles in a Thousand Years”.

And that means another contest.

Best of luck next time!
