Just wanted to send out some Christmas love to everyone out in the blog world! I'm sitting here with my family, listening to Christmas songs, eating good lasagna (lol) and brisket, taking hours-long naps, and feeling very blessed. Presents have been given and received, including a very generous donation toward World Vision that my sister-in-law is doing on behalf of our family.
I'm still deciding on what I want to donate. Maybe a goat? Or a duck? Chickens? They are all so cute, not to mention very helpful! (Let me know what I should choose in the comments. ^_^)
job training for sexually exploited women and medical care, one of the most desperately needed things in impoverished areas.
Looking through the catalogue, I was very moved and going into the new year I want to make it a goal to do some fundraising to donate to World Vision. I haven't planned anything yet, it's just been rolling around in my thoughts. This isn't some promotion for the organization or anything, it's just been something pressing upon my heart. I hope that when my idea comes to fruition, we will be able to show others the kind of love and generosity that many of us have been blessed with. Food on the table, warm clothes to wear, clean water to drink, and health. *teary*
Yes, I'm allowed to be emotional on Christmas, right? :)
Anyway, that is for shortly into the future. For now I wanted to announce the giveaway winners for the Jewelry Payless giveaway I've been sitting on for a while.
First place for a $50 toward jewelry is Rinny:
Second place for $30 toward Jewelry Payless is Paige:

I got my dad-in-law this guy from Target because it reminds me of the dogs. LOL.
Much love, and thank you so much to the One who we remember on this day who has blessed our lives in immeasurable ways. You breathe life, you authored love, and you keep me humble. Thank you. ^_^
