Tuesdays Unwrapped and Little Chicken Designs GIVEAWAY

So I have been stressing a ton lately. I have been given so many blessings, that at times I think they may actually be trials. It frightens me to think that God is making me stretch and grow when all I want to do is go back to bed. Change is frightening to me and it has been a VERY interesting 6 months. Then in the midst of some craziness I was given clarity! A friend said "why are you affaid?: sounds an easy enough question to answer right? WRONG! I was dumbfounded. When faced with the facts, that God is in charge, that God is leading this change, that God is all knowing, loving, and merciful, what was I afraid of? That same day I found this:
Don't Worry about anything;
instead, pray about everything. Tell God waht you need and Thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God's peace, which exceeds anything we can understand.His peace will gaurd your minds and hearts as you live in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7

I LOVE that our Lord "speaks" to us when we need to hear him. I love that we guides us to his words over and over again. I love that our Lord gently reminds us. It makes me try so hard as a parent to guide gently.
In the spirit of blessings and giving I wanted to give, and I hope that in giving something made be me through blessings, you are blessed!
I wanted to host a giveaway for Chistmas! To participate you need to blog about your favorite Christmas memory from your childhood and then link it up to MckLinky! Make sure to mention in the post about the giveaway! Up for grabs is a Magical Moments Pillow Letter to Santa Pillow. You will get your choice of pillow to use for one of your own precious children or as a FABULOUS gift! The purpose of the pillow is to help create the magic of the season. For me the magic and wonder of this time of year makes me feel all warm and fuzzy! Also, coming soon, as in once things get a tad less stressful there will be prayer pillows, and tooth fairy pillows. I like the idea of Children writing letters to Christ or to their gaurdian angel. I digress, SO... blog, link it up, and on Saturday Dec. 12th I will draw the winner!
