"Miracle Blog Party" and Giveaway

Welcome. I am so happy that you stopped by. My garden gate is always open for you to come in and sit and relax - have a cup of tea and attend Design Gives Back's " MIRACLE BOG PARTY " AND FABULOUS GIVEAWAYS on Friday August 27th - Saturday August 28th and Sunday August 29th celebrating Colette's Miracle Makeover and inspirational story and reveal video.

If you are just finding out about the Miracle Makeover project - the makeover project all started when Kelee of Design Gives Back, http://www.katillacshack.com/, decided to take a crew up to Michigan in the middle of last winter to create a healing room in which Colette Gauthier could recover. Colette was living in a tiny and dismal rental home. And, she was almost out of hope as she had been diagnosed with breast cancer and was given a 5-15% chance of survival.

God has given her different odds though!

You can see her journey and the miracle that happened on the reveal video. There are plenty of great design ideas and the heart warming video is truly inspirational. Please go to http://www.katillacshack.com/ to attend the party, view the video and leave a comment to win one of the fabulous prises. You can also read about the miracle that happened in the September issue of Guideposts Magazine - www.guideposts.org.

Give Away Painting from The Painted Garden. Details on how to enter to win are shown below.

My journey as a thankful nine year breast cancer survivor has been to share my creative gift from God to paint with others who have cancer. I felt a connection to Colette when I first read about her story on http://www.katillacshack.com/. She loves roses and her favorite colors are Amethyst, for peace, Spring Green for health, and Rose Pink for love and family. After seeing the beautiful fabrics that she and Kelee picked out for her makeover room I was moved to create a painting for Colette and contacted Kelee to ask if there was a need for a piece of art. She said yes that there was room for a small painting to sit on a table in her room.

This post is a celebration of Colette's journey and Miracle healing that started with the prayers good wishes and actions of so many in the blog community.

There is power in united prayer. Jesus said "Where two or three are gathered in my name. I am there among them." (Mt,18:20). The power of prayer was strengthened as so many united together in prayer for Colette.

Colette Gauthier
Thank you for your courage and inspiration to all of us.
