End of the line – the contest is over

All good things must come to an end.

Actually, this is rarely true. More accurately, the mediocre, not-very-good, half-baked things come to an end, as do a host of bad things, like death, disease, sorrow and empty Nutella jars. The really good things, like God’s faithfulness, His love, our life with him in Heaven — these things don’t end at all.

David and Sarah say, “Cheers!” to our winner.

Not to detract from our our silly July Comment Contest, but it does end.

Thank you so much for participating. It has been a pleasure hearing from all of you. We have been so glad to welcome you to the living room that is our blog. We’ve tracked the comments throughout the month, and we’re delighted to announce that Cynthia has won the contest, with Aunt Kate as runner-up. There were a total of 321 comments made throughout the month, with 43 different people commenting.

Cynthia gets first pick from among these CDs, and Aunt Kate chooses second, from these titles:

Matt Redman

Matt Redman is a worship leader and accomplished songwriter — this CD is available because we bought it twice by accident. We’ve thoroughly enjoyed our copy.

Word of God Speak

Word of God Speak is a collection of songs taken directly from scripture, powerfully singable. I received a collection of these CDs for Fathers’ Day, and this one is a selection of the best of those three CDs.

Both these prizes are new, still in their plastic wrap, and will be mailed as soon as we know which are chosen by whom. We hope you like whichever one you get!

let's clink glasses

Come again! We’ll have another contest soon.

Again, thank you to all the others who commented so cheerfully. It adds a lot to our enjoyment as we write when we have at least the illusion that someone is reading our blog. :)

  1. Hooray!! I won. What fun. But don’t think August will stop me from commenting. Give me lines, and I’ll write.

    Either prize is great for me, Cynthia. (who is Cynthia again?)

    Cute pics of David and Sarah!! Love you Edgrens, Aunt Kate

  2. What? There was a contest? How did I miss that?! Oh, man! How about if I put in 300 comments right now, on this very one? Can I win then? Please, oh, please. I want the “Word of God Speak.”

    Seriously, I love that you have a comments section now. It’s so nice to let you know I love your pictures and hearing about (and relating to) your life, maybe diminishes the reality that I’m so verrrrrrrrrrrrrry far away now.

    And what a good thought that all good things NEVER end. Love it!

  3. Kathy,
    If I can have the 2nd CD that would be great. My daughter said we already have the Matt Redman one. So, Word of God SPEAK would be AWESOME! Thanks SO MUCH!

  4. Dear Aunt Kate, there are a lot of us here who are Kathy’s “loopy” friends. It’s a wonderful (and large) support for us homeschooling moms–it’s a huge social outlet. Cynthia and De’Etta started the list, oh, I think it’s been 9 years now? Could it be 10?

    Ooh, Matt Redman! I love his music!

  5. Hi there!! I just wanted to take a minute to come by and say thanks for participating in my Mary Kay blog give away. Since you showed interest in Mary Kay products by entering the contest, I would also like to ask, do you already have a consultant who serves you??? If not, I would be honored to have that privilege! I will be hosting an MK Web party (at my Mary Kay Website – http://www.marykay.com/susannereeder) sometime in the next couple of weeks, and I will be posting the invitation on my blog very soon. This will be a “Mystery Hostess” party full of wonderful prizes, so be on the lookout for the all the details including the date and time. Thanks again for your interest. Have a POSITIVELY PINK day!!!
    Love and Prayers,
    Susanne Reeder

  6. Just checked back here again and want to say THANKS for the “cheers to the winner” photos of David and Sarah! Out little 4 yo was standing here while I was reading your blog just now and said “those are really cute kids.”!
