On the first day of thanksgiving tired supergirl's friends and acquaintances who donated lovely items gave to me - Sara Groves new christmas cd.
Today is the first official tired supergirl 10 days of Thanksgiving giveaway.
I thought about doing a 12 days of Christmas giveaway.
But I'm pretty sure that has been done before.
And what a better way to be thankful for the bounty that has been lavished upon me,
than to give away some things.
And I only have 10 items to give away so the #12 was not working for me.
So there you have it.
The first time I heard about Sara Groves was when my brother, Chris,
called me and told me one of his friends from college had put out an album,
Past the Wishing, and I needed to hear it. So I listened to it.
And I felt like Sara was singing all the prayers of my heart.
We got her to come sing at our little church in Burlingame and hung out
with her and her husband, Troy. They are keepers. Yes, they are.
3 things I like about Sara...
1. She writes and plays her own songs - that's sheer talent as far as I'm concerned
2. She sings about truth and Jesus and things that mean something - fantastic
3. She's funny - and you know how I feel about funny
Be prepared to thoroughly enjoy listening to her Christmas album and maybe to cry
a little. I'm not promising tears but sometimes she gets me, you know?
And I tend to be emotional at Christmas time anyway.
So I'm going in to listening to this with tissue on hand.
If you can't wait that long to buy it (because some of us like to get our Christmas tunes on early)you can buy it here.
And if you by chance are the winner and already have your own Sara Groves O Holy Night Christmas CD, you have the perfect gift for your best friend, Rita.
And if you don't win, maybe you should get one for Rita anyway. She deserves it.
She is your best friend after all.
The comments will be open until 8:00 pm on December 1st so tell all of your friends.
The winner of O Holy Night will be announced on December 2.
Make sure to leave your favorite Sara song or Christmas carol in the comments.
