I love this time of the year. I love the excitement of a child and the ripping of paper as presents are open. I love to give the presents to those I care about. I am excited to meet new people and this hop gives me an opportunity.
My first option is my FAVORITE Christmas book. It is "The Littlest Angel" by Charles Tazewell, it will be accompanied by a new release. It is a short Christmas story written by one of my friends, Rachelle Pace Castor, "The Christmas Apron". Rachelle has signed the copy that I am giving away. I am adding a story on CD that I received from the author. It is "Chris Mouse and the Promise" by Tina J. Lackey Adams.
Chris Mouse has just tucked her three little ones into bed when she notices the most beautiful bright shining star in the heavens. As she dreamily admires the star she remembers a prophecy she's heard stories about since her youth. A magnificent star would mark the birth of the Savior. Could this be the promise she had waited her entire life to see? What happens next will change the world forever. Life for Chris Mouse will never be the same.Most important to Rosie, though, is Bessie.
Rosie and Bessie become inseparable best friends. Day by day Bessie teaches Rosie invaluable life lessons, including "Home is a place where you are surrounded by love." Just before Christmas, when the woman who had taught her so much about living speaks of dying, Rosie learns what true love, beauty, and friendship really mean. Her understanding is an invaluable gift for all.
