Thursday morning when I got up, I had an email message and a Facebook post from my friend Beth at The Bee in Beth's Bonnet. She told me to hurry over to Missionary Blog Watch because I might win something!
I looked and come to find out, my blog and four others were being featured. If I was the first blogger of the five to respond, I'd win a $50.00 Amazon gift card. I thought it was a little too good to be true, but it wouldn't hurt to try!
Later in the day I had an email with an Amazon gift card attached! That I won was a surprise, but the even bigger surprise was that it was actually a $100 gift card. Wow! That really made my day, I can tell you.
Why was the blogger behind Missionary Blog Watch giving away a gift card? "Because today is World Mental Health Day. And I think a new read for a missionary would certainly promote mental health." I had to chuckle at that. I have had a lot of stress the past two months, so he's right. A good book is always a good cure!
I want to get The Land Between: Finding God in Difficult Transitions by Jeff Manion.
Any other suggestions of good books I should definitely read?
