a piece of my quiet time

My face is shining upon you, beaming out Peace that transcends all understanding. You are surrounded by a sea of problems, but you are face to Face with Me. As long as you focus on Me, you are safe.
-Jesus Calling by Sarah Young

I received a most beautiful book for my birthday... from a very special friend. I have never really had an every day devotional book that calls me from the bedside... but this one does. Faithfully. It is written as if Jesus is speaking... right to me. This reading is for today... and as I read, I could feel the Son on my face. The warm glow that lifts my spirits and brings a smile to my face. And He urges me on... to fix my eyes on the One who never changes... and today's waves... laughing at the future.

I would love to share this book with you... want one? I think I will hold my very first give-away ever. When will I pick a winner? How about... Monday! And how will you enter? Comment, follow, become a fan on facebook. Yep. Up to three entries. Because you guys are the best... and your friendship is another shining light in my life.

Two out of three-I don't do FB...but I comment, and am a follower.
OK. No pressure, but I JUST gave away my daily devotional (today!)to a friend who is in the process of a miscarriage. I felt so led to give her my devo. but, at the same time, wanted to snatch it back, because it has been so inspirational for me to read every day...I guess it will be perfect timing if I am a winner...
