Back to business though. I've had the proverbial "Aha moment" as Oprah likes to call it, but long before her, people called it the "light bulb moment". At any rate, I had one, and I think its just genius. Well it's pretty dang cool.
Remember when I was begging for people to come over and read my blog, "oh woe is me, I have not readers", and I mentioned how people have sponsors and they do contests and give away cool prizes. Well woo hoo for them, but look at me, ooh ooh, I have stuff too. DUH. I make jewelry, or at least I like to try to make jewelry, but I value sleep too much, and the children and husband need so much, and did I mention sleep. So I don't get to make as much as I would like, but I do so enjoy it. I do get commission work, which pays nicely, but I have something on my heart that I would just love to share. My Prayer Beads.
The concept formed when I wanted to do something nice, for someone whom had done a kindness for my mother. After hearing that she performed such acts of kindness to ease the pain of dealing with her own grief, I wanted to share my faith with this woman, and encourage her. I knew that she prayed, but I did not know what her faith was. I researched Rosaries and their history and religious significance, but decided against making her one, especially not knowing if she were Catholic or not. I came up with my own design, based on my own study of the Bible and some creative license.
Prayer Beads are an excellent way to share your faith with others. They offer the beautiful sentiment of prayer to be shared. For children and adults alike Prayer Beads make a wonderful Easter gift. They serve as a reminder of the true gift that was given to all by the sacrifice that Christ made.
This is what I've got. What I want is more readers. So here's how it will go. I'll run the contest for a week. All you have to do (hehehe) is leave a comment on this post. To get another entry go over to my website and look around and leave another comment here telling me one (or more) thing(s) that you liked there. To get another entry, go through my archives and tell let me know what you think about this here blog (be prepared, it's a real hodge podge of emotions). An additional entry can be gained (we'll count this one as two) if you become one of my 'Faithful Readers' b.k.a. "Followers". The winner will be randomly drawn from all the comments that are received, and followers.
Well I don't think that is all together too much, but it may be too little, I don't know, I've never done this before. So say a little prayer, and maybe it will be you that wins :)
