The Last Page of One Book

…Then the year came to an end.

What an amazing tale.

                I've been chatting with you all for yet another year and have enjoyed every minute.

Whoa! The stories we've shared, and the fun company around 

                                    the fireside when the weather is cold

                                                                the beach when the weather is warm
         
Discussing intriguing topics about God's world

Meeting authors--and participating in their book giveaways.

Sharing needs

Praying

Blessing


As this year draw to an end, take a moment to remember how the Lord has blessed. Yes, we can all think of tragedies, and lament with each other over those moments and there is a time for that….

For today, though, lets dwell on the good and praise God for what he has given us. Help me make a list. There is no order, just add whatever pops in you head:

Home
Family
Food
Church
Salvation
The Bible
Eyes that can read
Hears to hear
Mouths to taste
Feet that can walk


Keep the list going….

And just for you!

For this week, the ending of 2013 and the beginning of 2014, I am having a book giveaway from my stash of fabulous author books. I have a stack of about fifteen books and would love to share with you. (Books by Terri Blackstock, Julie Lessman, Frank Peretti, Ted Dekker, Beverly Lewis, Tracie Peterson, Rachel Hauck, Anita Higman, Dan Walsh/Gary Smally, Kathy Herman--and more)

Leave a comment and become either a follower of my site (fifth box down in the right column) or sign up to receive posts by email in order to enter.

Two winners will be chosen from all the commenters this week. Winners will be able to choose one book from my great author's stash and announced Friday on my Facebook page: Mary.Vee.Writer


May the Lord greatly bless you in this coming year. 
May the trial be manageable, 
and the joys a pinnacle experience.

    1. Pam,
      A beautiful world. I guess we need to us "Eyes" to see the beautiful world. Too often we see that bad, but with God's help….you will have eyes to see the beautiful world. May God richly bless you.
      I am so thankful to see you again and look forward to spending the new year with you.

  6. So many things to be thankful for - but the two that pop into my mind are friends and modern medicine (besides the ones on your list, of course :D). Have loved stopping by here and reading (even when I don't comment.), and many of those authors up there are faves. Would LOVE to be a winner :). Blessings!

    1. Joanne,
      I am so excited to stay in contact with you this way. I am missing you already from the loop. Being thankful for friends and modern medicine are great choices. Modern medicine is something I am using today with a nasty cold. I pray that you won't be in need of modern medicine this year, but also am thankful, that should the need arise, you will have access to it.

      Each time I send out an email post, know that I am waving hi to you :)

    1. Hi Donna!
      Happy New Year to you, also!
      Freedom. Great word. Praise God we can worship freely. I am also so very thankful for the soldiers and related workers who have fought to give us the freedom. We are so blessed!
      I'm looking forward to seeing you often this year, Donna.

    1. You and me both, Cindy. What kind of tea did you have? My son bought me a new kind. The tin said "Paris". Not sure what is in it but it sure tastes good.
      So nice to see you here today.
