A Very Special Day Indeed . . .

It's her fifteenth birthday. My AubreyGirl . . .she's only grown in beauty. May the Lord grant her to grow in wisdom and stature, in favor with both God and mankind. May she grow to be a vessel of honor for His noble purposes.

The Birthday Girl will be enjoying a delicious, decadent chocolate cheesecake as her birthday special . . .and TWO of YOU will soon be enjoying delights of eye and ear! :)

I stand some impressed with the mental prowess of womankind at large. While everyone saw the condensation on the wine glass in various forms, I am not penalizing anyone for choosing 'water' over the white wine that filled the glass ~ although several were suspect a libation of some sort was involved! :) CONGRATULATIONS, O WISE ONES!! So, without further ado, let's draw for prize #1, shall we???

Here is the preparatory phase. [Gil says next time we'll do a random Excel drawing. YeeHaw! High Tech!]
He hasn't suggested any automation for the slicing and dicing . . . .

I suggest the Birthday Girl do the honors!

And the WINNER of SOVERIEGN GOD is (drum roll, please . . .)



And, as a BONUS, I've made an executive decision. While none spoke of the *mystery descriptive* I mentioned (which was: a picture of a wet road taken in a rear view mirror at night), I stood in AMAZEMENT at (once again) the mental prowess and imagery that three individuals did think up:

TBird (Hi Tem!) said: it almost looks like ice skaters on a frozen pond with a Christmas tree in the middle the way the light bounces off the glass.

Joyce said (in clever dictation): I'll bet its a shoe you've been waiting to wear,With some frosty dew from the cool morning air.

Andrea said (with great humor): It looks like a silicone implant just taken out of the fridge.

Therefore, because it's my drawing, and I can make up the rules, I tossed these three into the hat . . .er, on the table:

And Birthday Girl drew the WINNER:

WOOHOOO!! {{SNOOPYDANCE!!}} YEEHAW! CELEBRATE!! Joyce, you've gotcherself an AWESOME music cd! :)

Janet, Joyce: email me at JaJireh at yahoo dot com with your address, and your happies will be on thier way! :)

I've officially decided that contests are FUN! I do believe I'll be sharing some more of my favorite things as blessings to you this year, out here in the blogosphere! :)

Now, off to partake in some fun and frivolity for the Birthday Girl . . .

Happy New Year, everyone. May the Lord work in you to do both of His will, and His good pleasure in the days to come . . .

Hey Angie, I was looking at your pictures and immediately noticed that our daughters have the same pink plaid pajama pants. How cool are they?

Wishing your daughter a happy 15th.

Joyce said...

Gil says it is OK that I come? Wow what a great guy! ;)

I'm nearly ready to have a side stop when dh & I take our anniv trip to a warm & sunny beach!

Renae said...
