HE is in control of too!

Sweet, very talented and witty Melanie, aka Big Mama hosted a give-a-way
of 'winners choice' from my website last week.
The response blew us both away and we were very
thankful for each and every one who commented in hopes
of being 'the winner'.

There were some mishaps during the
give-a-way which led Melanie to post two separate posts so everyone
who wanted to enter to win could do just that. was the source Melanie used to choose the winner
once the give-a-way ended. Then Melanie posted the "Winner".

Soon after that Melanie sent me the winner's email address
and asked that I contact "Michelle".

When I received a response from Michelle I immediately forwarded her message
to Melanie, knowing she'd be as touched by Michelle's response as I was.
Melanie & I both agreed after reading the email from the winner,
"now we know who is in complete control of!"

An excerpt from Michelle's email read as follows;

"...I am thrilled about winning! When I saw that Big Mama was having
the giveaway I immediately posted my comment with my favorite piece
in mind! The really cool thing is that on the day that I was chosen,
we had just signed a purchase agreement on a new home!
We have waited a year and a half for a new home after a tough move.
It's been a long, tiring journey and I feel as if the Lord confirmed
this decision with a stone of remembrance!..."

Congratulations once again Michelle and the entire Cody family!

Wondrous are His works....AMEN

And we have such trust through Christ toward God.
Not that we are sufficient of ourselves
to think of anything as being from ourselves,
but our sufficiency is from God.
2 Corinthians 3:4-5 NKJV

Have a wonderfully blessed weekend.
Thanks to Melanie (Big Mama)
for hosting the give-a-way and congratulations to The Cody Family
on the purchase of your new home and for winning!
Matthew 21:22
