Comment Day Giveaway #2!!!

Today is another Comment Day across the blogosphere- a day when all of us are encouraged to read as many blogs as possible, being sure to leave a comment on each and every one.  How do I know today is Comment Day?  Because I invented it, that's how!  On the previous Comment Day (back in late April) I visited over 50 blogs and commented on each one.  And I have to tell you, it was one of the most inspirational days I have had in a long time.  There are dozens of folks out there who share from their hearts on a regular basis.  It's great to read their posts.  But it's even better to give them feedback and encourage them to keep writing.  And that's what Comment Day is all about!

To encourage participation, I'm going to be giving away a Rich Mullins Greatest Hits CD (Songs) to the 10th different person to leave a comment (not counting anything I might say) on this post.  If there is a 17th comment, they will win as well.  And should we make it to comment #25, I'll come up with a spectacular prize.  But all of that aside, this is not about reading my blog.  I am so thankful to have so many readers, and some of you are really good about leaving comments, tweeting or e-mailing me.  Today is about reading the blogs of others.  You can start with the list to the right of this column.  These are some of the blogs I love, and I think you will too. 

So get out of here!  Go read!  And have a happy Comment Day!!!

Because of Jesus,
