CD Giveaway Contest!

I love contests, so I thought I would put one on my blog. This past weekend, I went to the Tyrone Wells concert with my sister, brother-in-law, cousin, and cousin’s boyfriend and we had a blast. I just love Tyrone’s music. I think he sort of sounds like a mix of the bands Coldplay, Maroon 5, and One Republic . His music has been featured on some television shows like One Tree Hill and Grey’s Anatomy, as well as on commercials and movie trailers (My Sister’s Keeper). My brother-in-law, Luke, grew up with him, so that is how I heard about Tyrone’s music. I especially like the song, “Remain”. There is something about it that I find so comforting. It reminds me of God's steadfast love in this crazy life. 

You can sample Tyrone’s music on his website:

Here is the contest:

First, become a follower of this blog if you aren't yet (just click on the button "follow on the left hand side of this blog).  Then, post in a comment on this post about one of the following:

2) ideas for upcoming an blog topic(s); OR

I will put the names of all who enter into a drawing and draw one winner on Saturday morning. The winner of the drawing will receive a copy of Tyrone Wells’ CD “Remain”.

If only one person enters, it will be really easy to win!:)

Here are the lyrics to the title song “Remain”:

You feel the earth shake
You've never felt safe
Nothing stays the same at all

I will remain
When everything changes
And you think of the faces
That all slipped away
I will remain

Afraid of the let down
You say I won't stick around
You say people are made of
Glass and dust

But I will
I will remain
I will remain
I will remain
Feel my hands on your face

Look to the North Star
See where the canyons are
Rest your head on my heart
I will remain

When everything changes
This truth will stay ageless
I'll carve my name

I will remain
I will remain
I will remain

Feel my hands on your face

I will remain
I will remain
I will remain

Feel my hands on your face(x3)

Weird, I thought I already WAS a follower. That just shows you how bad I'm at when it comes to keeping up with blogs. But I do read your blog from time-to-time and enjoy it. I especially like to read about the place you're in at the current moment of life and then how the Lord is working in you during those good times or difficult times. It encourages me. (and that wasn't just for the Tyrone CD! :) I'm actually kind of bored at work right now...ha! But Tyrone rocks and so do you!)

A song that really has touched my soul this last few weeks is Chris Rice's Come To Jesus. It is so fitting with the seasons of my life.

And I can't help be do a scripture that God has laid on my heart recently

Proverbs 3: 5-6
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make our paths straight".
