Birthday Giveaway

Happy Birthday and Merry Christmas...

Because I have a birthday one week before Christmas I have heard that all my life, my parents always told me I was a lucky little girl because I shared my birthday with Jesus and I always was happy about that... even when my gifts were combined with Christmas. And so this year I would like to give a little something in celebration of another year of blessings and sharing my birthday with my dear Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

I will be giving a gift everyday from my birthday to Jesus' birthday... so seven gifts will be given with the final Christmas gift of a star. But this star will be made especially for the person who is chosen. I will put your photo or one of your choosing in the middle, if you wish, like the star shown in the picture. Please grab the star button with my url and post it on your website and leave a comment and I will pick the 7 winners on Christmas day. I wish to thank each and everyone of you for brightening my life like a Star... this past year and blessing me with your encouragement and friendship, I love you all.


Today is my Birthday and I would love to give you a gift!
Just a note to say I had a lovely birthday with a party at my daughters. It was such a nice dinner and a beautiful cake! Most of my children were in town and it was such a fun time.
Thank you for all your birthday wishes - it was so nice to get up this morning and read them! What a nice birthday surprise...
Blessings
Rebecca

    ReplyDelete
  95. P.S. My little grandaughter was due last Christmas Eve, we lost her a few weeks before she was due. It was so heartbreaking for us all. On our way home from NJ to GA. we were driving home at night, I was looking up at the beautiful stars and praying to God and talking to my grandaughter and said Halle if you can hear me could you maybe send a shooting star?...about an hour later looking out over the tree line while on a dark highway I saw a shooting star...I got so excited and asked my husband what was that?..he said it's a shooting star...oh my I was tingling all over and told my husband what I had prayed for. I thought I would tell you the story...God always hears us and my dear little grandaughter is in his loving arms. Merry Christmas to all.
