What joy the gospel gives me. I can approach the throne of God with confidence, not because I've done a good job at my spiritual duties, but because I'm clothed in the righteousness of Jesus Christ. ~ C.J. Mahaney

250th Post and Another Give-Away

I noticed the other day that I was posting for the 249th time.  That can only mean one thing.  I've spent way too much time writing this blog for the past three and a half years.

I do appreciate all of you who have joined me along the bloggity highway.  And, luckily for you, I like to commemorate the milestone blog posts with a little give-away.   I know.  I'm right in the middle of another give-away.  But this called for one of its own.  And I had no idea what I was going to do until tonight.

Tonight was the annual Thanksgiving dinner at our church.  And while I love all the food and great fellowship, my favorite part is after the dinner.  Our church always brings in a guest musician for a concert afterward.  And tonight was no exception.

Tonight we were blessed to hear Rodrigo Rodriguez on classical guitar.  I loved hearing the incredible testimony of a gifted musician, who played for audiences around the world, soloed with some of the most famous orchestras, yet never found peace and happiness until he met his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  Seventeen years ago, he trusted Christ for his salvation and committed his life to serving his Master.  Now, his ministry is not to perform, or to do "concerts", it is only to share the love of Christ and the hope that can only be found through Him.  To God be the Glory!

I love his message.  And I love classical guitar.  So while I picked up a couple CDs for us, I also grabbed one to give to one of you.

Imagine the lights dimmed, a fire crackling in the fire place, a warm quilt, a cup of hot cocoa, and a sparkling Christmas tree.  Now imagine this beautiful music playing in the background.  That is what I was imagining while he was playing some of these Christmas carols tonight.

Leave a comment, either here or on my Facebook, if you'd like me to enter you to win his Christmas CD. Believe me, it is GORGEOUS!   Visit this website if you'd like to hear previews of the songs.  You'll need to scroll to the bottom to the Christmas CD.

I'm going to draw for this in the next couple days.  So, holla in a hurry, ya' hear??!!
