Here's the G

Oh yall...I cannot tell you how much all of your comments and emails made me cry, in a good way! You encouraged me SO MUCH. I treasure your thoughts and experiences that you shared, the verses, the teachings, the life lessons...every word of every comment and email means so much to me! THANK YOU!!!!!!!

Now, on to the G....

Laurie Knowles....You are ONE SMART COOKIE!!!!!!!!!!!! You were the first to get it right girlfriend!

It's a GIVEAWAY!!!!!!!!! I've never done one before and I am SO PUMPED about this! First, it's just fun. Second, it's helping a family bring their two babies home from Uganda. Third, it gets God's Word about orphans out to the world around us.....

Here is the prize:

Sky blue t-shirt, adult size L-classic fit-front view

back view of shirt-click to see larger view

Is this shirt not the greatest? I am so happy to have found the Oatsvall family blog. They are a family striving to follow God's will for their life. They are in the process to bring home two children from Africa and are selling these shirts to raise funds for their expenses. You can see another view of the shirt on the Oatsvall's site in the sidebar. Feel free to go order some for yourself and your friends! ;)

And here is how you enter the giveaway: Simple. Leave me a comment! I will put all the names in a hat and pull the winner out! The drawing will be Tuesday, March 24th! But Laurie Knowles...do not enter the contest friend. 'Cause guess what? I'm giving you a shirt just for being the first one to guess correctly! (Yes, I ordered several of these shirts...how could I resist them?)

So......if you'd like a shot at this adorable tee...leave me your comment as your entry and consider yourself officially IN!

Oh my goodness Laine. I haven't read your blog in a few weeks..and I just read your post that you did before this one...

Read my blog from this week....NO, Laine, you are not alone. I feel the same way and I am just happy to know that someone else out there LONGS to go back to China.

I can't believe we wrote about the same thing and didn't even know it or haven't even talked to each other!!!!!!

Love you,
and anytime you wanna go to China, call me. No, really, I am serious.

The Princess's Mommy said...

Whew! I'm glad I made it back in time. Please enter me in the giveaway!!! I LOVE the shirt (and Gwen!).

And I can completely relate to your previous post. in fact, it made me do the big ugly cry because I feel the same way....about Chin@ and orphans and how we spend our money and how I'm sitting here with a nursing degree and not using it...I could be helping sick babies...oh Laine, I so hear your heart! You are so not alone.

Love you,
Monica

Oooh ooh ooh, I totally forgot to guess the G! I would have been wrong anyway--I was going to guess that you'd be beginning a new career as a GARBAGE MAN (or woman, I suppose!) LOL

So not funny, I know!

So I hope I'm not too late to get in on the "giveaway". I would so love one of those shirts!

Waitingfaithfully said...

Pick me! Pick me!
I sooo wanted that shirt awhile back when I first saw it, but I was wishing it was on a "girlie" style T-shirt, and now it is! So if you don't pick me, I think I'm gonna have to go over there and order one up!

Thanks Laine for spreading the word for orphans!

Bless you!
