The "Just Because" Giveaway


My late husband liked to bring me little gifts and flowers "just because." I'd clean out his small Igloo cooler and find a Hershey bar tucked inside. If he worked in Amish country, he'd bring home a chocolate shoofly pie or some other treat.

Today, I'm bringing my Followers a special "just because" giveaway. I appreciate your faithfulness. If  you're not already a Follower, a simple click on the button will remedy that situation. :)

Deeanne Gist is a well-known author in Christian circles. I enjoyed her book, "Maid to Match," and want to share it with one of you. Below are the giveaway rules:

1. Comment on this post, telling about a "just because" gift or surprise you've received.

2. Your email address must be in the comment. Sorry, no email equals no entry.

3. The contest is open to Followers of Christian Writer/Reader Connection in the U.S. only due to our laws and is void where prohibited.

4. Neither the author nor the publisher provided this book or paid for a review.

5. Deadline: Saturday, June 11, 2011, at midnight. The winner will be emailed on Sunday, June 12, 2011, and announced on the blog sometime that day.

Let's have some fun with this and count our "just because" blessings.

Deanne's book looks good and so I am sure whoever wins it will enjoy the read .. just sorry I live across the pond ...

Hi Hilary -

Yes, he was a gem. I truly believe I wouldn't be writing today if it wasn't for his support.

I'm sorry my Canadian and "across the pond" friends aren't eligible for the giveaway. At least I can share my opinions on books you might want to read.

Blessings,
Susan :)

Hi Susan .. he certainly seems like he was a lovely thoughtful man ... and especially if he supported your writing too ..

I know - but I understand the border limitations (sometimes!) .. yes - it's good to read reviews by bloggers whom we respect and appreciate ...

Thanks for your thoughts .. Hilary

I have a writer friend who has sent me "just because" bookmarks. :-) She's so sweet!
Your husband was wonderful too! I've heard this book is super good.

My hubby will bring me home chocolate...just because. And, my oldest son will pick things up for me that he thinks I would like...just because. Love the idea. Enter me in the drawing. everythinghomewithcarol at yahoo dot com.

Hi Everyone -

We've had severe storms here tonight. I didn't get much done on the computer.

I pray everyone is safe.
