Shout out to my new friends in Warner-Robins, Georgia. Had a great time (and a great steak!) with them Monday night at the Christmas banquet. I stood onstage beside a half lit tree, which is better than the "naked" tree that's been standing in my living room for over a week now. That's OK because my message was about majoring on the essentials this Christmas season. (Note: tree decor is not essential.)
I'm over at Karen Ehman's blog today talking about The Little Drummer Boy and giving away my book, a magazine subscription to the P31 Woman, and a gift card to Barnes & Noble. Pop over there to read it, then come back here and - for another chance to win my book - leave a comment telling me what your "drum" is.
If you don't know what your "drum" is and you're trying to figure that out, you can still comment here to enter. Just fill out this online spiritual gifts questionnaire, and report back here what it identifies as your top 3 spiritual gifts.
I'll draw the winner on Friday.
Meanwhile, here's the video of The Little Drummer boy from the animated classic that first made me fall in love with this song as a child.
Off to do an interview with Renew FM in New England, then WPOS in Toledo, and then make some cocoa before decorating my tree. I hope last year's strands of lights still work ...
