The team of writers at Laced With Grace are pleased to announce our fall readers contest. We have joined with Women Of Faith Ministries to offer two premium tickets to attend the two day conference at any venue in the United States.
Tickets include admission for two, boxed lunches and other neat stuff.
What do you think God could do in your life through a Women of Faith conference?
Please plan to enter our contest daily. Stop in and read our daily devotions Monday through Friday and leave us a comment. All comments count as an entry. The winner will be announced on the Monday following Thanksgiving. ~A perfect day for one of our readers to receive a gift and a give thanks to the Lord for all He does in our lives.
Tell your friends and add our button to your blog or website then let us know. We will enter your comments twice into our drawing.
I was completely ASTOUNDED when I came home and low and behold a box on my desk! What a blessed surprise! It was the “prize” I won from my entry over at “Sew the Word“! Thank you dear sweet Denise!!!
She made this incredible bag (In case you don’t know— I love bags—I collect them! AND I take one EVERY DAY to work with my books/Bible Study/camera/etc. to work!) She also made the picture—it has my name embroidered on it in English and Hebrew! Wow!!! I still cannot get over my wonderful blessings!
Girls, I have to tell you—-for some awesome Bible teaching—-you really need to check out Denise’s site at Samaritan Women. I love reading her teachings. A teacher of the Bible for many years, and a sweet precious follower after the heart of God.
I am blessed by so MANY friends on the blogroll. When I need some uplifting thoughts, they are as close as my sidebar! Check a few of them out!
Thank you Denise, this could not have come at a better time! The Lord certainly knows how to pick a girl up!
We are getting ready for our Bible Study beginning in September —can I tell you I am nervous?? I have had a couple more express their interest and plans to participate! It will be at the Sister’s of Faith blog! (If you are new here—go to the Sister’s of Faith Blog and view the book—maybe you already have the book and want to join!
I am ready…study book, Bible, new book marker, pencil, computer, paper, coffee cup, Kleenex (in case we need it), Depends (in case Aimee says something funny), YOU and US!
Okay ladies—-back up a bit….to the post where I introduced the Mother’s Day give-away. I gave you a ***hint***—***she is a mom***. Okay now I am going to out right tell you that the hint is —she is a mom—which is referring to something about the give-away. Which, by the way —is —-a very good gift!
Since YOU ALL KNOW how I love to read…I will give another hint….***book***. That is just to easy! Now, “someone“ told me to be real plain– very easy….because sometimes when we are reading blogs—we are tired. I know…sorry…I go through the same thing! (Remember this morning’s 2:34 a.m.—I get tired when He wakes me up)
So, the biggest clue I am about to hand out is this…every clue is either surrounded by *** or, it is in bold. Now, before you grab every word in my posts that are bold…I will say that you should be careful…not every bold word is part of the clue.
The beginning point for this give-away is here. The gift will go to the first person that guesses the gift! When leaving your comment, you don’t have to tell me that you know the hint (so that you don’t give it away), but please tell me you “think” you know. You can e-mail me and tell you what you think it is—with your return e-mail and I will reply with a confirmation or tell you “look again” :-).
IF no one is able to guess—(I will make it easy as possible)—the gift—for Mother’s Day, I will use the random number generator to select from each individual that comments. It’s the only fair way I know. BUT I would love it if you try and guess!!!!
Have a blessed evening—and Friday! AND Saturday!
Since I will be hosting a grandson sleep-over Friday night for a couple of them, I may not post on Saturday due to mental and physical exhaustion!!! (Lori, I sound old…well, tonight, I feel old!)
In a world full of changes….here is yet another one. After discovering a very ugly and graphic comment on one of my posts, I have had to enable comment moderation. I appreciate my sweet readers, you are loved! Please don’t let this deter you from posting a comment. That is so encouraging to us as we “blog” along in our ministry for the Lord.
So, I continue to “blog along”—writing devotions—sharing snippets of the life at the Knight house—joys and pain—loving the Lord with all I am —all I have—and being obedient to what ever He calls—***His name is Jesus***
There are days when I share lunch with my sister, Aimee in this fashion…I call her on the cell phone—or she calls me…and as I am going to the “drive-thru” of whatever is handy, we chat…she is doing the same as me…but is about 40 miles away…and we get our food —settle in for “lunch via cell phone”. It’s not what we wish it was…but at least we are able to share it in that way. We talk, share thoughts about what the Lord is dealing with us about, and sometimes she or I will share a scripture… or sometimes…you won’t believe this…but one of us may even “sing” to the other! Stop laughing….we do….And then sometimes, we share about the “stuff of life”. The painful stuff. We help each other…bearing one another’s burdens.
This week, I did the “crazy” thing. I was driving to run a quick errand on my lunch time…and as I made a turn onto the 4-lane—a song from YEARS ago came to my mind—from out of the BLUE! See if you recognize it…
“There’s gonna be a big homecoming
I’ll meet you up in heaven
Big homecoming in the sky
There’s gonna be a great big table spread
milk and honey fed
Big homecoming in the sky”
It’s an old Happy Goodman Family song….I remember it from when I was a young girl, and had not thought of it in years…but it came to me as I was driving and I just started singing it…called Aimee—and left the song on her cell phone! It was so bad it made her cry! (Well, she cried…so I figure it was really bad!) It made me think of Wanda…and wondering what she was doing…is she helping get the table set? Is she cooking one of her special dishes for dessert? Or, is she sitting at the feet of Jesus? I don’t know…but sisters…I am making my plans to FIND OUT!
Don’t forget the “Mother’s Day” give-away…and the “*clues*” within each post until then…go here to read what to do! I love each of you!!!!

Calling all writers! Click on the link button above and enter the new writing contest at Christian Women Online Magazine.
Once again, Christian Women Online, in conjunction with Art Bookbindery, is sponsoring the “Her Life Reflected,” writing contest. They are looking for essays that tell us how your mother, or a mother that you know has reflected the heart of our Heavenly Father in her life. The winning essay will be one that is both written well, and of most importance, one that reflects God as being the central focus of one’s life.
THERE IS A CASH PRIZE offered—along with some great books, a new coffee mug, Music! Wow! How can you resist?
Never thought about writing…? Well, give it a shot! Pray about it—write about her! Someone must have inspired you to be who you are! Tell us! Click on the button and find out the details!
I wish I could enter…but I can’t—contest rules and all that stuff—since I am a regular contributor to CWO Internet Cafe…..but if you can….do it! Do it now!
I cannot wait to read what you have written!
Do you remember this line? “Wouldn’t it be a hoot if you won both give-aways?” This line is from the “give-away” post. Now girls, I tried about a dozen different ways to paste the actual page from the number generator that I always use on this page…nothing worked. Maybe you have a way to copy and paste and it turn out just right….but I just could not make it work!
So I copy pasted what I could…the pictures would not paste… 😦 But the rest did…so—without further ado…..
This program will generate a random number between two numbers of your choice.
Enter a lower limit: 1
Enter an upper limit: 45
Random Number: 5
I am excited to announce….that Darnelle….you must be wearing your lucky shirt today!—“Wouldn’t it be a hoot if you won both give-aways?” Congratulations girl! It amazed me…and I laughed out loud when I counted down the list of names to number 5!
Well, that’s it for today! I have a special “Mother’s Day” give-away already lined up. But I have to learn about Mr. Linky first (how to install and use)—it will be a great give-away…and I already have it—purchased from “LifeWay” two weeks ago with “Mother’s Day” in mind. So, stay tuned…you never know when a clue to the give-away might appear (hint…you will see **** surrounding a word clue)!
