Monday Meditation~Early & Book Giveaway~Hurry!

"Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where He prayed." Mark 1:35 NIV

I don't necessarily think that we need to leave our house...or that it must be dark.

I do believe that early in the morning we need to follow Jesus' example, spend time in a solitary place, and pray.

We need to seek Him first (Matt. 6:33), yield our hearts to Him...and ask Him to be Lord over our day.

Lord, draw us into Your presence early each day. Help us to yield our hearts and our days to You. Help us to trust You, Your leading, and Your will. We love You. Amen

NOW...for the Book Giveaway!!!

The book is Life Lessons from Dads, compiled by Suzanne Williams and Tracy Ruckman and published by Write Integrity Press. It is a beautiful gift book and lovely tribute to Dads. The opportunity to honor my sweet Daddy in this book is such a tremendous blessing to me! You will enjoy each story, such precious testimonies. (See cover in sidebar.)

So, here's how you might win!
  • Leave a comment that includes your email address so that I can contact you and get your mailing address. (If Google is being persnickety or thinks you're a robot, you may comment on my Facebook page.)
  • I hope you'll take time to browse around. If you should decide to become a "follower", I'll throw your name in the hat twice! (In your comment, state that you did so.) I hope you will check back soon as I plan to add a Speaker page with information for booking for your women's events, MOPS groups, or writer's conferences.
  • If you subscribe by email, let me know that too. That could earn your third chance!
Now, the deadline is Monday night at 10:00, so don't delay. I want to be sure that your gift arrives in time for Father's Day.

I'm praying that your day is blessed beyond measure!!
