I Lose, You Win

Sometimes I write my posts at night. Sometimes, if I have an idea and a bit of time to sit around and do nothing while my husband plays Tetris on the Wii, I will type out a blog post and save it for the next day. This is what I did last night. However, sometime last night, the blog monster logged in to my account and deleted it. This totally blows my mind. As you type a post, WordPress automatically saves your draft every so often. So really, it should be somewhere. But it’s not. It’s gone. Lost. Into the depths of cyberspace. And I’m annoyed. Do any of you WordPressers know how to find a lost post? I’ve tried everything!


Last week I posted about the Bible Study I’m going through. I got a lot of comments, emails, and facebook messages about it. I’m glad to hear that so many of you are striving the be godly women. I sent an email to Priority Ministries to tell them how much I’m enjoying the study and how many women in my life are interested in this study. On Saturday, I received a really sweet letter from the Director of Production and Resources. She sent me two Beauty by the Book single CDs to give away to you, my fabulous readers. That’s pretty fantastic, huh?


Here’s how we’ll do this. If you’d like to enter, just post a comment to this post. The only requirement is that your comment must contain the word “beauty”. It can be Biblical beauty, worldly beauty, a link to a beautiful dress you want, etc. You can post up to 2 comments. I will use a random number generator and announce the two winners on Friday.


Best of luck!

    I think YOU are a BEAUTY!

    May I enter on behalf of my BEAUTIFUL wife?

  • 3. Jimbo  |  April 13, 2009 at 11:43 am

    Sorry to intrude into the contest comments but, when did you and Stephen get a Wii? And would the Tetris game he plays be Tetris Party? Sarah and I have it and we LOVE that game!

    Jim – Yes you may enter on behalf of you wife. #2 and #3 are now your entry numbers. Apparently now #4 will be void since that’s me! Stephen got a Wii for Christmas. I think it’s Tetris Party. It’s the one you buy on the system. Check your Wii-Mail. I think Stephen requested to be in a Wii-lationship. (I made those Wii terms up, no idea if that’s what they are called! Sounds good to me!) Check it tonight and let us know.

    Jim, you and your “beauty”-ful wife should play Wii with Chelsea and I. It is Wii party.

    I also have tiger woods golf and some other games if you want to start up some games later on.

    (I’m entering so I can get the thing and give it to someone of my choice… stephen = wildcard!)

    I saw BEAUTY and the beast on Broadway! I loved it!

  • 7. Sara  |  April 13, 2009 at 5:26 pm

    I stepped to the edge of the Grand Canyon and saw the BEAUTY of God’s creation.

    Hmmm…Beauty is in the eye of the beholder 🙂

  • 9. Christine  |  April 14, 2009 at 10:02 am

    Beauty= Chelsea Hurst! 🙂

    Is it too late to enter? Because if not I’d like to mention how much I miss the beautiful TX sunsets and your beauty filled face. 🙂
