31 Days :: Happy Birthday Mama! {A Giveaway}

Today is a special day.

A day to celebrate, reflect and remember. Today, October 23rd, would have been my mother’s 67th birthday. {Happy Birthday Mama.} I wonder if she knows it is her birthday down here? Hmmm. One day, I will know.

Until then, I will remember.

Two things that marked my Mama were her great love for music (she sang like Aretha – no joke) and what a gift giver she was. She made a big deal about birthdays. She loved surprises. She loved blessing others. So today, in true Darlene fashion, I want to make a big deal about her birthday with surprises and blessings.

A month ago (or so) one of my besties surprised me with a CD. Have you ever heard of SEEDS Family Worship? Oh my. If you haven’t, this is a big day for you. The first day you’ve heard of SEEDS. I am excited!

My friend gave me a CD called Seeds of Courage for kids. What is it like, you ask? How can I put it? It is soulful, funky music – great beat, current, relevant, contagious and it is all Scripture. Yes. Every bit.

These CDs are the best I’ve heard. Each song truly sow Seeds into the hearts of my boys. I. Love. Them. Love them. I am actually using two songs off of my CD to lead preschool worship this morning. Did I mention I love these?

{Confession: I listen to it when the boys aren’t with me. Don’t tell.}

So, can I give you one? Surprise and bless you on Mama’s birthday? She would love that.

This could be your CD…Seeds of Faith
