This is the final day for the SGM Christmas Giveaway Extravaganza 2013!! You can comment on all of this week’s posts until 11:59pm tonight to count toward the giveaways. To enter this one, leave a comment sharing whatever you wish about your story…someone you’re missing, or to thank a person or organization who has walked with you in your grief. I hope this week has been a blessing to you. All winners will be announced tomorrow morning. One more tidbit, that has nothing to do with the giveaways…but I think is worth sharing, before I sign off. Sufficient Grace Ministries has been entered into a contest by the gentlemen of Alpha Sigma Phi, who recently hosted a special event to help raise funds, awareness, and make Comfort Bears for bereaved parents served by SGM. They stuffed 85 Comfort Bears and raised $900. But, their efforts haven’t stopped there. Our God loves to multiply blessings. We are currently receiving top votes for the video submitted by Ian (of Alpha Sigma Phi) to the Drew Brees Super Service Challenge to receive the People’s Choice Award and $5,000 to continue to send our Dreams of You packages and support to bereaved parents worldwide. This is an amazing story of compassion displayed by these beautiful college students. And, I would love to see the story go global. We hear plenty of bad news….this is a story of hope and a story with heart. An unlikely pairing…college frat boys and a Christian organization for grieving moms. To vote as many times as you wish between now and December 15, go to this link and click the green button.
It has been an honor and privilege to share this week with you. I have read your comments and I’m sending prayers of God’s peace and comfort for all of you sweet mamas and your families. Thank you for allowing us the privilege of Walking With all of you!
