We Have A Winner!!!!

"Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning."
James 1:17

A BIG thank you to all who entered our 8th Year Blogiversary giveaway!!
We so appreciate your loyalty, support, and encouragement all these years, and it was such a joy to hear from you!
I am SO sorry to all who were unable to leave a comment to enter the giveaway.  I truly do not know what is wrong or how to fix it, and I do apologize!

The way we chose our winner is by using a handy dandy gadget Zach introduced me to called Wheel Decide.  If you ever need to choose a winner for something, this is a very fair and fun way to do it!  We numbered each qualified comment for the giveaway, then Zach entered the numbers on Wheel Decide, spun the wheel, and our winner was chosen!!!

Drum roll, please.......

And, the winner is —MARCI!!!!
Hooray for you, my friend!!
