MY 400th POST !!

How, oh how, could it possibly be that this is my 400th post.....but it is.

When I began this blog 562 days ago, on January 31, 2007 I never would have dreamed of the blessing it would be in my life.

You have become dear friends.

You inspire me in so very many ways.

You have given me a tiny little taste of the wonder of The Body of Christ
and what a joy Heaven will be.

I've been blessed to personally meet 3 of you in real live so far:
Soholiah, Michelle & Annie

I hope God blesses me with meeting more of you.

If not here on Earth, I know I will "know" you when I see many of you in Heaven!

I wrote about this wonderful book here.

I am an avid reader and this book touched me more than anything I've read in a long, long time.

To celebrate my 400th post I am giving away a copy of it.

Leave a comment and I will draw the winning name Saturday, August 23rd.

If you've been blessed & already read this book sign up for the drawing anyway and pass it on as a blessing to someone else.
We are on our way to Oklahoma City and the VA Hospital today for 2 tests on Mickey. At 1 o'clock he is having an electrocardiogram and at 2 a breathing test. Please keep us in your prayers. We KNOW who holds us in the palm of His hand!

Hooray! Congrats Susan! I just passed my 700th, but the wedding was going on and I let it roll on by.

Love the book and pray someone really deserving wins it. It's so worth the read.

I pray that everything went okay with the tests yesterday and that Mickey is healthy again soon.

I just bought that book at Target in Eugene, OR last week as our book club is reading it this month. I'm going to start it after the peaches are all put away, hopefully today! I'd be glad to pass yours on though :))

Congratulations on your 400th post! I hope we can meet someday soon. Have a blessed weekend!

Musicaljean said...

That book touched me like nothing I have ever read before (besides my Bible). I was beginning to read it a second time, pen in hand, but I apparently left it behind when I was at my family's retreat last month. So please put me in for the drawing.

Sioux said...

Barbara said...

Congratulations Susan. You have been a busier blogger than I have with only 300 since January 2007.
As I have The Shack on my list for Amazon, maybe I will leave it a while and go for your giveaway first.!
Continuing in prayer for your dear husband and yourself of course. Will wait to hear the news.

Larissa said...

Well, take me off the list to win the book. I went and bought it and I am in love with it!!! I'm just now getting to the "good" part. I'm so glad you posted about it, b/c it caught my eye after reading your post when I was at the store this weekend. :)

Jungle Mom said...

WOW! I remember when you first started. Has it already been that long???

Susan said...

Just finished this book. I enjoyed it.

I am so happy that you decided to take the blogging plunge. You are a blessing.

:-) Susan

I'm a wee bit late - trying to catch up!

Happy Blogiversary!

Please put me in the drawing for the book (at least I'm not too late for that!).

Mountain Mama said...

I was drawn to the picture on the cover of the book because except for the porch overhang the house I grew up in was shaped the same way.
I pray all had gone well with the tests.
God bless you both

Jillian, Inc. said...

Congratulations on 400 Susan. You've become a cherished blogging friend. (PS - Don't add me for the drawing. I have the book and have already read it.)

Here's to 400 more!!!

Mary@notbefore7 said...

Congrats girl! I read the book and own it. Please don't include me in the contest - I'd love someone else to get a chance to read it. Just wanted to say congrats.

Ross' Cottage said...

Wow 400 posts! Isn't is amazing to be in touch with other Christians that are from different states and different areas? All with the same thing in common. A relationship with Christ. That is so uplifting to me and I can tell I am making some real friendships now that I did not expect to ever have. I am also so grateful to God for that. I am hoping all went well for you and Mickey at your appointment. You are both in God's hands all the way with many who care for you.

Melinda said...


I love to read, so I would love to be in your drawing! :)

Susie said...

That is amazing-400 posts! You are such a blessing in this world of blogging. You have always taken time to encourage and support even when I fail to get over for a visit.

Congratulations Susan!

Sharon said...

Prayers for you and Mickey.
Please enter me in the give away.
If I don't win could you please let me know where you found the book?
Congrats on your 400th and may we see many, many more.
GOD bless today and always.

Momma Roar said...
