AND THE WINNER IS......

Oh, first I have a couple of things I have to attend to before I announce the winner!!

For those that have asked about the snow falling--just visit here, and it is very simple to add snow falling to your blog. So, I'll be expecting
to see snow fall around me very soon!!

And, I just have to share these picture of Miles.
He is so cute when he is being good:

Here he is lying on a shelf that my son made. Of course, he cleared off everything that was on this shelf before he decided to perch himself there.


And here he is, just getting ready to take a nap, I think. He is really yawning, but in reality, I think he's laughing at me taking his picture!! He's thinking--"Just wait until she goes to bed, then I'll see what I can get in to. She thinks I'm so cute!! I'll show her just how cute I can be!!"


What?? Oh, the winner of the little angel. I almost forgot!! Okay--here we go!

There were 35 wonderful comments with beautifu
l Christmas songs. I love each and every song that you do!!

So, instead of using a random generator, I decided to do things the old-fashioned way because I'm just that kind of girl!!

First, I had to decide what to use for the container for the drawing. I finally decided on this Christmas mug:


Then, all the names were written on small pieces of paper, folded and placed into the mug:



And, finally, I had my son draw a name from the mug to choose the winner:

I know I took a picture of him holding the name of the winner because we both looked at it!! But, for some reason, this picture is not on my camera this morning!!


AND THE WINNER IS:



CHERIE J!!!!

and here is Cherie's comment:

Definitely O Holy Night. Every time I hear that song it just takes my breath away. It truly inspires me to worship Christ!



Me too, Cherie, me too!!

A big congratulations to Cherie!! I really wish I could make all of those who entered an angel. If you really wish you had a little angel, just let me know. I'm in the spirit of CHRISTmas here, a giving spirit, and I'd be more than glad to make you an angel. Just let me know, and she'll be on her way to you--a CHRISTmas present from me to you!!

Your blog is snowing! I love it! How have you been? I love this time of year, but I do need to be reminded once in a while what CHRISTmas is all about... and it's not the full calendar, Christmas shopping lists etc. I hope you are enjoying the season AND God's goodness.

And yes, I lost our Christmas box. The only thing I can think of is that it was accidentally taken to Goodwill last spring when we moved. We have a tree up though and I did find my nativity set and our adornaments (they were randomly in another box).

Congratulations Cherie, Oh Holy Night was the song I picked too. You're gonna LOVE that angel.

Cherie J said...

Thank you very much! I am so happy. These past few weeks have been so difficult for me after having severely injured my knee on November 14th slipping on one of my 2 year old's toys. I tore my Meniscus, ACL and MCL and fractured my Tibia. I was feeling really discouraged and read a verse about hoping in Jesus which lifted up my spirits. This angel will be such a blessing to be able to look at after each of my Physical Therapy sessions and through my eventual knee surgery. I have to admit that when I heard I had won this I cried because I believe that it is the Lord's way of reaffirming that my hope is in him. Thank you so very much! God bless you!

Peggy said...

Congratulations Cherie & speedy recovery! Of course,it's God reaffirming how much He cares & is there for you through all this recovery process & Physical Therapy and hopefully you won't need the surgery! We send angels around you
& the toys in your home & your babies.

Angel maker Beth...What a kind heart! Do you know what you're doing opening up with this Christmas spirit idea!!! No loosers here!!! How long does it take to make each angel? You'd better limit it to the original 35 commentaters!

I loved O HOLY NIGHT too! I even posted it! Do I get extra credit?

Anyways, I don't need it for Christmas but could you make me an angel, my angel friend?

I'm home...not MN...dogs are so happy!!! Not like Miles however!
That does not look like a yawn to me or a smile...looks exactly like
what you described...waiting to
attack...planning his next caper!
Ohhh Miles, you are so blessed that she loves you so much! You are very beautiful...love your colors but you look very mischievous! Behave yourself!!! Hope you are feeling better...WINNER also of GIVE AWAYS!

Give and it will be given to you!
Bless you Beth as you give may you be blessed as you bless others!

Haven't been to visit in a while, love the snow!

I thought about adding it to my blog but it might look a bit silly since we have Christmas in mid summer!

Such a blessing to come to your blog and get to listen to Michael W Smith.

What a beautiful cat Miles is! Yesterday I was gone to my mom's to put up her Christmas tree and her kitty Tiger was really having fun getting into the ornaments! lol Mom never knows what she'll wake up to when she gets up in the morning! hehe

Congratulations to your winner, I've no doubt she will love the little angel you made, it certainly is gorgeous!! I would love to have one but only if you have time:-) xoxo
