I'm a Winner!

I need to start this post by saying that I never win things. At this point in my life, adding my name to a drawing is just something to do. I've never won a drawing, and to be perfectly honest, never expected to.


Until tonight.


I received an email from Virtue Alert informing me that I was a VIRTUE ALERT WINNER! and that my name was drawn from the list of people who voted on the book cover options for Vicki Courtney's new book.


I can barely remember conversations that I had last week, much less that I threw my name into the hat for a FABULOUS PRIZE back in December. So when I received the email to inform me of my good fortune, I scared my husband with the yell that I let out! What I meant to say, is that I sedately smiled at my good fortune and responded politely and quietly to the email. I was particularly excited because the prize turns out to be TWO BOOKS! That's right. Not one, but two. This is the perfect prize for the person who will read the shampoo bottle if all other reading materials in the bathroom have disappeared. Seriously, people. It's a sickness.

If you've never visited Vickie Courtney's blog, I can promise you that you will be blessed and encouraged by what she has to say. I would particularly recommend reading this and this. She is the perfect mix of humor, scripture and mercy.

So thank you Vickie Courtney! Thank you for giving me the opportunity to live the dream. Now I can confidently add my name to drawings and raffles with the knowledge that I too, can win.
