I can't help it... I love me a good love story! Romantic comedies and cheesy TV movies that play on my emotions like a pro... yeah. I love them. (I know?)
If you have been hanging around this little corner of the web, then you already know I am all about "Being Love"... I swoon at the Romance of our God. Me and Jesus... we are tight and I was easily convinced of His great love for me from the very beginning of our courtship!
It took many years longer for me to believe that the Father's heart was all in, as well! --That He was for me and crazy in love with me, too! It took some healing and building of trust to believe that He was happy to see me when I would approach Him in prayer, in worship, or in the Word. It took time... but I got there!
With Valentine's Day right around the corner, it's easy to get caught up in the Romance of it all! However, I know not everyone loves this 'holiday'... not everyone appreciates the over the topness of expectations and Hallmark!
I remember years ago, when the Lord prompted us to stop making February 14th about Romance, and instead, to make it about Love! (There is a difference!) So for years, we have celebrated Love as a family... we point others to the Ridiculous Over the Top Love of our God - no matter if you are married, or single... young or --ahem, not so young... None of that matters when it comes to how much God desires to pour out His love on you!
So, in honor of Valentine's Day, I am hosting the "It's All About Love" Giveaway because as much as romantic love makes my heart all racy and my knees all weak... it's Love itself --Himself-- that we want to celebrate! Whether it is the Love of the Father, loving on some friends, or celebrating togetherness (romantic, or not!) - we wanted to spread a little Love, and invite you to do the same!
The Lord would wake her up in the middle of the night to write these love letters, and she collected them one by one! Now, there are 38 letters compiled in this book that are personal and powerful and oh my goodness, every one of them will bless you so much!!
Along with the book, I wanted to include a little something Artsy from me! I am a lover of old school mail. I mean, what is better than receiving a handwritten card from a friend?
I made this set of 4 Handmade Friendship cards. They may not reach you in time for Valentine's Day but these Coffee-themed cards are so fun and perfect for any time of year! A Perfect way to reach out and share some love!
Lastly, I created this little bird painting on a flat canvas board using acrylic paints and sealer. I just love the visual of how we are never alone... whether it be a significant other, a friend, or simply the Lord Himself... there is always someone perched right by our side!
So... We will have ONE GRAND PRIZE Winner who will win:
(2) Love Letters from the Heart of God books
(One to keep, and one to give away!)
PLUS the set of cards, and the painting!
We will also have THREE Runner Up Winners, each of whom will receive a copy of Tamara's book!
Enter Below and Good Luck!
