What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

Lookie Lookie!

Lookie, lookie at what came in the mail the other day.....

I am just SO STINKIN' excited!

The postcards I had made to thank all you lovely people who gave donations came---and they are so beautiful.  They look like you could just plop one off a rack at some postcard KIOSK.  Nice sturdy, colorful little things.  That they are my pictures....well, I feel just a smidgen famous- even if I am the only one who sees them right now.

Pretty much everyone is getting some for Christmas.  Just because.  They MUST.

This is the LAST week I am going to pester/beg/plead/petition you all to donate to the good cause that is our friends'.  (I promise.)

I know- it is the worst time.  A week before Christmas.  But if anyone hasn't already and wants to donate a little (or big!) something to a great cause- NOW is the time!

You'll get some perdy (ifIdosaysomyself) cards out of the deal....

I'll be mailing off the postcards and all other prizes/ thank-you gifts after Christmas.  (Too many last minute projects BEFORE Christmas...you understand.)  

Last weeks' winner of the book The Practical Homesteader was Zac C.  If you want the book Zac, email me at sgrbear724@yahoo . com with your addy, would'ya?  There were only two contributors last week- so it was a 50/50 chance of winning!

If the same is true for this week- think of the possibility of you winning this~

... a hand crocheted sage-colored doily and a sparkly (the best kind) beaded bracelet with a metal clasp.

They could be yours!  Any donation is eligible, no matter the size!

We went to visit our friends the other weekend, and they are doing remarkably well for all that they have been through.  Amazingly well.  And they were overcome with gratitude to you all (they happen to read the blog) and the many wonderful people who have donated time, clothes, resources on their behalf.  I couldn't get the poor woman to stop saying THANK YOU.

They don't even know how much money they will be receiving- only that strangers are doing something for them.

Let's work together to blow them out of the water, shall we?!?  :-)

And if you have no idea what I am talking about in this post~ read this
