Guess what? It's my 500th post and to commemorate this monumental milestone, I'm having a giveaway! I know, I don't do giveaways. OK, so I did have my one and only giveaway (hollyhock seeds) a couple years ago. But to be honest, I did not even have a clue I was so close to 500 posts. (I only found out a couple hours ago while locating an old Christmas post and saw I was at 499!)
So, what's a girl to do, but have a giveaway. And with this being so last minute... and with Randy's Christmas music playing in my head because of all the rehearsals for his concert, why not his Christmas CD. I really think you will love it. And I also want you to have his newest release, that I love like my first born child. OK, I'm kidding. Well, sorta. And in case you're wondering, I do sing with him on his CDs.
So anyway, I thought, why not a 2 CD set giveaway! And who knows, I might throw in a surprise or two.
Randy wrote this on his web site about his THROUGH DIFFERENT EYES CD-
My whole intent wasn't to do a traditional Christmas album. (I have always said that I didn't want it to be 'Randy Thompson does "Perry Como does Christmas"'). I really wanted to try and break through some of the tradition and the stuff that has come to surround this event and see it again, if only in glimpses, the way it was. The third year we did the concert I added a song that I wrote in the 3 days prior to the concert and which has become the opening song on the album - 'We Want to See Jesus'. One of the lines also ended up becoming the title of the album and a simple way of expressing my desire in this whole project - to see this event that we are so familiar with 'Through Different Eyes'.
Randy wrote this on his web site about his THIRSTY CD-
“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled.”
With each day that I spend as an alien and stranger on this desert planet I become more aware of my ever growing hunger and thirst for Christ. I have also become aware that being hungry and thirsty are not something to try and avoid, but rather, they are a gift of God, to continue to draw me to His Son. He is the only one who can satisfy. He is the fountain of living water that never runs dry.
If you would like to win this 2 CD set giveaway for yourself or someone else, then comment by answering this question-
What Christmas CD do you listen to over & over, that will most likely be the first CD you play once the Thanksgiving table is cleared?
I have a whole post planned about my favorite and our extensive Christmas music collection. So stay tuned.
I will be drawing the winner 8 PM Black Friday. (Phoenix time)

Thanks everyone for your love and support for these past 500 posts! Who knew I had it in me. I surely didn't. I knew I had the gift of gab, but seriously, 500 posts!
