Make Me Over


Oh, how I love makeovers! I’m always fascinated on how someone can look at something or somebody and actually see the finished results from the very beginning.

You may remember a few weeks ago Edie, Rich Gifts, had joined in on the Christmas Giveaway for Lysa’s blog. Edie was giving away a blog makeover. By leaving a comment; your name would be entered into a random drawing. Now, if you wanted more chances to win, you were asked to let others know on your own blog, which I did. After I did all that was asked, I waited patiently and prayed a little selfish prayer….that I might be the winner.

I’m so excited to tell you, my blogging friends, that I won the blog makeover!!! When I opened my email from Edie on Saturday morning and read that I had won, I literally lost my breath. Once I recovered I ran upstair to tell my daughter, who was half a sleep, the great news. Her reaction was “That’s cool” and rolled over to go back to sleep, I guess she wasn’t as excited as I was.

I’m now looking forward to see what God and Edie have in mind for this blog makeover. I’ve seen some of her work and what a gift God has given her.

So, a day will come when you’ll stop by for a visit and think you’re at a different blog. But your not, the outward appearance will look amazing but the person inside is still the same.

Yay! What a wonderful surprise. God does care about our needs...even something as smalll as a blog makeover. It only proves that He cares to make our smallest of desires come to fruit.

I love how you shared your daughter's reaction...I can almost see it. Funny....

:D It just thrills me when I can do something that makes them this happy. Now I will just remind God that if you don't like it, it's HIS reputation that's on the line here! LOL! kidding.

My daughter always gets just as excited as you daughter over the things in my life that that I find exciting. Haha.

Hey Girl,
Congratulations!

I have seen Edie's work and she is amazing!

It will take some of her best work though to make your outside makeover blog as good as the inside of it's blogger!

You are so precious with such a God loving heart.

Can't wait to see it!
Love ya
