Giveaway and SCC

I'm still on quarantine and don't have a lot to offer or share on a personal level today but I thought I'd give you two fun things:

Go and check out HERE - I am giving away FOUR of these awesome new Black & Decker flex mini canister vacs. If you have kids who make a lot of crumbs or messes (or like me have puffs all over the floor) or pets who shed - these are so great so you don't have to drag out your big vaccuum every time. Go read more and see how you can win!

Also - I've spoke many times of how I love Stephen Curtis Chapman and last year when he lost his daughter Maria - my heart just broke for his family. He has released a new album following that tragedy addressing pain and hope in Jesus Christ. These personal songs will literally take your breath away.
BUT here is the cool thing - TONIGHT at 9CST/10 EST - he will be on facebook http://www.facebook.com/stevencurtischapman
(just follow this link) and will be sharing live about the album and chatting with fans. It would be awesome to hear his story. If you have dealt with a tragedy of your own - I think it might touch you. If you haven't - I'm pretty sure it will be very meaningful anyway. I hope you will get the chance to check it out.
YOU DO NOT HAVE TO HAVE FACEBOOK TO WATCH!!! :-)

Oh... you've never met a SCC fan like me... He's my ALL TIME favorite of my LIFE! I've been DYING for today - his new release! I'll be on Facebook FOR SURE!

I hope that flu - flies! Love that little picker-upper. I am sure that my four small grandchildren have a hole under their arms that emits small particles of stuff. That little machine would be a great help after they go home.

Thanks.

Creative Dragonfly said...

I would absolutely love to win one of those little vacuums! I'm a stay at home grandmother who babysits my granddaughter while her mother teaches and her father constructs and believe me, she can make big messes and I would love not to have to drag out my big vacuum. Plus, I make hats and other children's items and there's always thread or yarn hanging out on the floor just waiting for someone to vacuum them up.

I hope you're all feeling better soon! The flu is no fun at all especially for the little ones.

Allison said...

I've been a fan of SCC for years and I cried and cried when I watched the video of Maria's funeral. It just breaks my heart. I can't wait to hear his new album!

Love SCC! Met him when I was rehearsing for a pageant - he was in concert next door and it was such a blessing to meet him and see him "behind the scenes" and see him be the same person on stage and backstage. What a great testimony and love for Christ!

Kellsey said...

I would love to win one I have a cat who sheds alot and am in a wheelchair and one of these would make it easier for me to clean up

Cheers

Kind Regards!
