Another milestone

Believe it or not, but I will turn 50 this week. Never thought that day would come so fast after my 40th birthday. It seems the last few years accelerated, but maybe that was because I've been busy ;)

Anyway, for one thing, this special day will be a good moment to give away some goodies. My upcoming book (My Neighbor's House) hasn't been released yet... so I'll throw in a classic: Sacred Sabbath, God's way to multiply our time and restore our joy. This book contains a serious message for America as well as lots of encouragement for the church as it is.

You don't have to sign up for anything, just leave a comment and a link to your own blog (a little promotion never hurts) and use ONE word to describe your blog!

I'll ask my husband to pick a winner, or two, and I'll send you the book when I come back from my trip to Israel. Happy blogging....

    Happy Birthday!& Enjoy your trip to Israel!
    I'm thinking I need to read this book being that it contains "a serious message for America"

    Blessings to You ♥

  4. He en wanneer ben jij dan jarig. Vlak bij mij dus. Ik krijg via fb nooit berichtjes dat iemand jarig is. Maar ik wens je nu alvast een heel fijne dag toe en Gods zegen voor het komende jaar.
