Inspiration for today...

Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable - if anything is excellent or praiseworthy - think about such things.

Philippians 4: 4-8

Thursday Thirteen #5 Christmas Songs with Giveaway...

Today I decided to do something different - yes, there is a catch - You can win some yummy Tastefully Simple product for your troubles. I am going to list 13 Christmas Songs (OR lines from the songs), but it will only have the first letters of the word. If you can figure out all of the songs you will be entered into the drawing for a chance to win. The prize is the Artichoke & Spinach Warm Dip Mix, Warm the Oven! Savory Dip Mix, Spinach and Herb Dip Mix and the Bountiful Beer Bread Mix - Retail Value just over $35.00 with Shipping and Handling. Perfect for entertaining your New Years' Eve guests or anyone in the cold to warm up a bit. Make sure if you are entering that I know who you are and have a way to contact you back in case you are the winner! (HINT: You don't actually have to know them to enter, that would require thinking - just post a comment!)

I just checked out Tastfully Simple and loved all the products so it was hard to choose a favorite, but I guess I'll start with "THE PERFECT 10".

I'm not here to enter your giveaway but reading your T-13 only. I think I know three of them by letters only.

Come by and visit with me today and check out my thirteen if you have a little time. Happy Thursday.

Merry Christmas from She Lives!

I am torn between the tomato/garlic pesto and the pinenut pesto....I love pesto.

Sarah said...

By golly, we've got it! Yep, all 13 songs we know! This is my first comment to enter your super awesome contest! You are so creative, Jody~~

Sarah said...

I know the bonus #1 question...for my second entry!

Sarah said...

Tastefully Simple rocks, and you are a super creative person! I love the Artichoke dip that you brought to LNO last time!

Sarah said...

Opps...I think I am missing a comment...just to let you know, I didn't cheat to get my answers, but Terry did help me with a couple of them. That isn't really cheating, and the prize would be for both of us. :)

You did a super job and I just have to say this was a fun contest to enter! Thanks for the chance to win your prize!
