You're Already Amazing!

"Psst...pull up a chair and I'll tell you a secret. You'd better lean in close for this one.
You don't have to do more, be more, have more.
I'm sure there are security alarms going off somewhere. You should probably hide this book
when your in-laws come over.
But it's true.
It's the kind of true that will change your life, set you free, and make you wake up
smiling for the first time in a long time. I know because that's what it did for me...
So watch out , sister. If you keep reading you just might be next."
-by Holley Gerth

"With this heart-to-heart message, Holley Gerth invites  you to embrace one very
important truth-that you truly are already amazing. Like a trusted friend, Holley gently
shows you how to forget the lies and expectations the world feeds you and instead believe
that God loves you and has bigger plans for your life then you've even imagined."

{Keep reading giveaway of this book below!!}

This is such a random post again today. One of these days I will get my act together and actually
post something worth reading. lol 

My flowers that hubby gave me for Valentines day all opened up so I had to share them
even though they are not white.

I found this on Pinterest and thought it was so cute! What a great idea!! 

This is what it was doing yesterday in Michigan...snowing big huge flakes , but then it all left as quick as it came.
Rain, rain , rain again, but I leaned out my back door and snapped this pic before it all disappeared.

Well today started out interesting. I thought I may never be able to blog again...ever! That was an
overwhelming thought and one that really had me in the dumps.  The way I usually post was not working
for me and I had no clue what to do so I clicked on the "try out the new version of blogger" or something
like that and guess what it said?? Your browser no longer supports blogger and some parts of it will
not work. Please download Google chrome or some other browser"...EEK!!

So, I started downloading google chrome and then took off for town. You k now what is supposed to take a
couple minutes takes this internet over two hours so I might as well be productive while it is doing it's thing.
Got back from town and I am trying this new browser. I will let you know how I like it. We tried this before  and
it really slowed down the computer so time will tell.  But, I really don't have a choice anymore if I want to
continue blogging and I DO...I DO!! :)

{I was afraid this might be my first missed White Wednesday and I was bummed, but I was
able to post after all...happy WW everyone!}

NOW for the giveaway...I am giving away a copy of this brand new book titled,
You're Already Amazing by Holley Gerth
"Embracing Who You Are, Becoming All God Created You to Be".
Please leave a comment telling me if you would like this book for yourself or for
a friend and tell me why you want it. That's all there is to it.
I will pick a winner in a week or so.

Hi Sandi, I hadn't heard of this book before, but it's a message I've been teaching for years. I have to admit, we all need to wake up everyday in the reality of this. I want to read it, but I also want to share it with my two wonderful adult daughters, who sometimes need to be reminded.
Hoping your Internet works!! xoxo

I'll have to look into that book. Sure seems like something I desperately need to read. I took a smile off your wall and am sending it back to you. Don't you just love Pinterest?

Pleuntje said...

O I would like/ love to win this book. Because I still try to figure out what God wants me to do with my life.
And how I can be special for Him. Do you understand?
It would be very nice to read this book. And I am so happy to know you Love Him too . Love Petra

Bliss said...

I don't want the book. I already know I am amazing! So I want one of your other readers to have it.

Hope you like your new browsing experience with Google.


Irene said...

I love Bliss' comment. She is amazing. I NEED to read this, but I will be equally happy if someone else wins. It's so important to feel appreciative of the wonderful creation we are, after all God doesn't make junk. Thank you for suggesting this book, I shall keep my eye out for it.

Rebecca said... are amazing! We all are.

Love to you~

Hi Sandi... You got quite a bit of snow we did not get but we could see up North and it was definately snow clouds... I downloaded chrome several months ago and ended up taking it back off as I couldn't access some things I used on blogger such as a link... I couldn't figure how to do it off it came.... Good luck with it....

Heaven's Walk said...

Sandi - you always bring a smile to my face when I read your posts. :)

This book you discovered sounds like something I could definitely use right about now. Not that I'm throwing myself a pity party or anything.... :) but I think it could bring a little comfort to my life right about now and help me keep my head on straight. Thank you for giving us all the chance to win, my friend! ♥

Are you ready for that snowstorm headed our way....? UGH!!!

Maelchen said...

What I nice and inspiring post I found here, dear Sandi! Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a friendly comment. That's how I was able to find you here. I like you blog and will pop over oftenly from now! Greets, Manu

Ironstone and Pine said...

Would love to read this....I have a friend who absolutely needs to, she is stretched so thin from doing everything! We all need to know we're amazing, I'll bet it's filled with wonderful words of wisdom to live by.......

Momx6 said...

I would like it for me! And then I would share it with my 3 daughters and 3 daughter-in-laws. I am 60 years old, and I still need to understand that I am special. Love your blog...just found it today. or

June said...

We ARE already AMAZING Sandi!!!! That is what we all NEED to understand in our lives to be happy. The book sounds great.
I loved your lovely photos my friend!!!
I think once you get used to Chrome you will never look back. I hate having to go on IE for some of the things I do. Chrome is great for Blogspot, and to me it was easier to go that route rather than change to typepad or wordpress for blogging. I have never hard trouble leaving comments since changing.
have a wonderful weekend!!!!

I would love this book for my friend. She is constantly doing things for others and not taking the time to stop and enjoy each day to the fullest.
Perhaps I can take a peek at it myself, as well.
Love you blog.
