GIVEAWAY!!! yay! :)

Hi ! Happy September, everyone!!! The giveaway is now closed... BECAUSE WE HAVE A WINNER!!! It is YOU, ALAINE88!!!! Please email your address to me, so I can get this book and Starbucks card into your hands!!! Congrats! Thanks for joining me in this giveaway!  :)

 Yes, a GIVEAWAY!!!  yay
Once again, I got to review a new book; this is a privilege, expanding my horizon of authors. Love it!

GIVEAWAY: This book by John Hagee and a $5 gift card to Starbucks. One of my favorite things to do while reading is sipping a cappuccino, so I thought I bet someone else finds that special too! These are just two of life's simple joys! 

To enter, leave me the title of your favorite book.  :) The winner will be announced September 1, this coming Saturday, in the afternoon. Hope YOU win!

Since I feel the exact same as I did when I wrote my review for Amazon, I am just going to cut and paste it here...

Anytime a title/subtitle has the words 'new' and 'revelation' in it, I am a bit leary; couple that with a friend telling me that this author, John Hagee, is a "name-it and claim-it" pastor, well, I proceeded with extra caution.

I'm just glad I proceeded!

For me, the book is a trove of information, all leading to God and encouraging our walks with Jesus. Never have I learned so many details about the blessing in Numbers 6:22-27 and the blessings that Jacob (Israel) said to his sons, upon his deathbed.

It was captivating! John Hagee definitely writes with flair, honesty, and a deep love for God and His people.

As far as the blessings we pass onto our children and others, I do not believe we can just say, "You will be the best salesman" and God will bring it to pass. Since our days were written by God while we were still in the womb, I think that God may not have planned for that person to be a salesman, the best or the worst.

Still, he only mentions this kind of thing a couple of times, and it is a mere drop in the ocean of God's Word, which John abundantly shares. 

Even though I finished it days ago, it's often that I find my mind pondering what I read... and smiling.

I'm happy I read this book!

hugs & kisses!
