Chance to Win Free Header

A few days ago, I told you that I was excited about my 1000th post and was going to give away a blog header design today.
Well, it is here--today is the day to leave a comment if you would like to be eligible to win the design. 
But I had a method to my madness and I will share that now. 
We are turning men away right and left from Renewal Ranch because of lack of space to house them. (Renewal Ranch is a home for men with addictions to drugs and/or alcohol who want their life restored through Jesus Christ--this is accomplished through a six-month long intensive Bible training, teaching and memorization plan)
You can read more about Renewal Ranch and see some of our videos HERE. 
One of the younger volunteers, a lady named Wendy, decided to do something about it. 
She decided to raise $100,000 to go towards the building of a new bunkhouse.
Now, I can tell you right now that makes NOT BUTTERFLIES, but big huge eagles fly around in my stomach. What faith!!
Here is Wendy's idea and I think it is an awesome one.
She is trying to recruit 100 women who will commit to trying to raise $1000 each. 
I thought about it a little--I have NEVER attempted to raise that kind of money.  And it didn't take me long to decide that I had to at least try and leave the results in the hands of our great, big God.
So here is ONE of the things I am going to do to try to raise my part--
----------------design blog headers---------------
so to give it a great big push, I decided to GIVE one away and it just HAPPENED to coincide with my 1000th post.  How fitting!! 
I have 100 days to raise 1000 dollars--Think I can do it??  We'll see!
The headers will cost $50 each and if you are interested, please use the contact info in the right sidebar to contact me. 
I will try my best to give you a beautiful look.  
If you would like to be eligible to win, today is the day to leave a comment!   
If you wish to comment but do not need a new header, please inform me.  Thank you. 
Comments for this page will be open until Thursday afternoon at 5 p.m. Central time. 
My post from a few days ago was a little confusing so I will be including those who expressed a desire for a new header who commented that day.  I hope all of you think that is fair.

First...congrats on your 1000th post! That is quite a feat!

Now girl...big faith is right for Wendy! I'm reminded of David and Goliath... All David had was a tiny sling, but along with it came God's favor... This very minute I'm praying for God to work a miracle with Renewal Ranch and asking for the funds to flow in...

This all may seem big to us but it isn't to God!
