Giveaway Winners!

Last Monday...
I posted an exciting update about Eucharisteo: A Celebration of Joy... where I announced the total funds raised for this Compassion Child Development Centre... $30,158.42... the fundraising goal surpassed by $158.42!

God is so, so, so faithful!
This gift is truly too wonderful for words. I am blown away... it is utterly mind-blowing, thought-provoking, humbling...

And now, the giveaway winners!
In honour of everyone who helped to make Eucharisteo: A Celebration of Joy such a beautiful and successful evening, a giveaway is happening today right here on the blog!

Initially, I said that there will be two winners! Well, friends... there will be three! One will receive Dr. Wess Stafford's book, Too Small To Ignore and two winners will each get his newest book, Just A Minute.

The first winner... receiving the book Too Small To Ignore is Jennifer Doiron! This is the comment that Jennifer wrote:
The second winner... receiving the book Just A Minute is G! This is the comment that G wrote:
Either book looks good to me :)
The third winner... receiving the book Just A Minute is Judy Graham! This is the comment that Judy wrote:
What a joy it is to see God work through ordinary people to bring about His purposes. How exciting to see such a goal like this reached...I love how God let's you know that this is His doing by providing just what is needed. Thanks to you and your family and PRAISE to God!
Thank you, everyone, for participating in the giveaway! It was my very first blog giveaway and it was a lot of fun! And to the winners... I will get the books to you as soon as possible!

As I continue to count grace-gifts, with unending thanks... to The One who is the Faithful One... these are the things I am thankful for this week... #1633 - #1639:
:: Getting to know a new friend from church.
:: An opportunity to serve dinner to a group of inner-city kids!
:: A seeming turn into a new direction.
:: Trusting God with the unknowns and knowing that He knows!
:: A timely read blog post from Compassion Family.
:: Lovely evening spent at the Pregnancy Care Centre's Annual Dinner, heart-warming to hear some great ministry updates and overjoyed to see two healthy babies whose moms came to a baby shower that I helped my sister's church to host this past Spring!
:: Sumptuous potluck lunch and awesome meeting with our church's Leadership Team... such a joy doing life and serving Jesus with this bunch of people!
Happy Monday, friends!
The quiet song of gratitude, eucharisteo, lures humility out of the shadows because to receive a gift the knees must bend humble and the hand must lie vulnerably open and the will must bow to accept whatever the Giver chooses to give.

Let's soar into this new week together, friends... let's do justice, love mercy and walk humbly!

Compassion is a command, an act of worship, a song of thanks to Him.
Do justice. Love mercy. Walk humbly with God!
