Guys – this weekend has been so amazing. I was able to attend a TEC retreat and left the weekend with an amazing group of friends and a second family. I can’t tell you all the details since every TEC is supposed to be participated in and not anticipated about, but I can tell you that it is SO worth it.
It was such a beautiful way to prepare for college – which starts in exactly six days. I am a mixture of excitement and sheer terror, which makes for pretty sporadic blog posts. Sorry about that guys!
Isn’t it amazing how God brings you exactly what you need when you need it? There are no coincidences since everything is perfectly placed in His plan for you. You are given the gifts, talents and characteristics that you possess for a reason. Everyday, God brings people into your life who are going to help you get close to Him. He loves you SO much and has an incredibly deep desire to spend the rest of eternity with you. You are the face He saw as He was dying on the cross, and yours were the sins He carried up to Calvary. He’s waiting with open arms, ready to run out and rescue you from your sin. You only have to say the word.
What an amazing love our God has for us. Christ loves you – now go tell others!
On another note – we have our winners for the giveaway! Kimberly, you’ve won the “To Save A Life” DVD. Hannah – you’ve won the “King and Country” CD. I sent an e-mail to the contact information that you provided, so check out your inbox.
Have a wonderful rest of your Tuesday night guys!
God bless each and every one of you,
Blog Birthday Giveaway!
The moment you’ve been waiting for has arrived – the blog birthday giveaway! Roll down to the widget on the blog in this post to participate. Also, I picked out a lot of stuff when I went shopping for this blog giveaway….I couldn’t put it all in one giveaway, so keep a close eye on the blog. I’ll be having some more giveaway soon!
The first item you can win is the movie “To Save a Life.” It’s an excellent movie about how the loss of one life can impact those around you. It is rated PG-13, and a review can be found here. I greatly enjoyed the movie – it’s an excellent movie. Yet it wasn’t made to be a “Christian” movie, it was made to reach out to those who are struggling with everyday issues and can relate. It deals with a lot of serious issues: drinking, drugs, immorality, language, and suicide. It does an amazing job of applying Christ to those situations though – and shows that all actions (good or bad) have consequences.
The second item you can win is the CD “Crave” by the band For King & Country. The CD features the band’s best hits so far in their musical career: “Proof of Your Love,” “Busted Heart,” and “Middle of Your Heart.” The band consists of two brothers, Joel and Luke. You may not know much about them, but I bet you know some things about their big sister, Rebecca St. James! They are Australian their voices are excellent and their message is solid.
So there it is! The giveaway will be open for two weeks, and there will be two winners (each person gets one item.)
Best of luck and I look forward to hearing from you all!
