Extra Sweet Giveaway!

Hey all, it’s time for another giveaway — an extra sweet giveaway! And you know me, when I think extra sweet, I think chocolate. How about a little Godiva goodness this time?

To make it extra fun, I’ll announce the winner of the $15 Godiva gift card on Mother’s Day — just two short weeks from today, if you can believe that!

To be eligible for the drawing, just leave a comment on this post by noon (CST) on Mother’s Day, May 9th. If I don’t know you personally, be sure to include your email address or link to your blog. To add to the fun, tell me what your favorite candy is. If you’re not a candy fan, tell me what you indulge in when you need a taste of something extra sweet. (For the record, the dark chocolate truffles from Harry and David are my favorite special candy, and my “everyday” favorite would have to be Peanut M&Ms :) )

I’ve got something else extra sweet for you today, too. How about a little goodness from the Word of God? The author of Psalm 119 expressed it well — “How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!” (Psalm 119:103)

I hope you’re blessed this week by reading one of my favorite psalms:

“I lift up my eyes to the hills— where does my help come from? My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth. He will not let your foot slip— he who watches over you will not slumber; indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.

The LORD watches over you— the LORD is your shade at your right hand; the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night.

The LORD will keep you from all harm—he will watch over your life; the LORD will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.” Psalm 121

  1. Suh-weet! I love both the chocolate and the scripture you shared, Cheryl. :-)

    I miss you. (((hugs)))


  2. I knew I loved you… Harry & David’s dark chocolate are mine as well (currently running out of my hidden stash) and peanut M&M’s hands down for everyday, although “everyday” doesn’t serve me well. I’ve had to watch it! I could eat an entire bag with little thought.


  3. Peanut butter M&Ms! :)

  4. Butterfinger candy bar!! Yummy!!!!

  5. I have become a dark chocolate fan. Dove chocolate is quite good but I am not picky. :)

  6. I love anything dark chocolate, and I love Reese’s pieces. And Butterfingers. And M&Ms.

  8. i love the following:

    -almond joys
    -peanut butter m&m’s

    none of which are available here…

  9. Chocolate and the Word, a yummy combo.

    Cheryl, I wanted to thank you for being a part of my first year of blogging! What a wonderful year it has been. I’m throwing a little party and as an honored guest, I would love for you to stop by and share a highlight of your year with all of us.


    Cactus Happy,

  10. One Word, CHOCOLATE..that does it for me..and the darker the better.

    Dove Promises Dark make me very happy. The only thing better…Chocolate and Peanut Butter..in any combination, any form, any way..even on a shoe I’d eat it!! MMMMMMMM

    Hope you are having a wonderful week!

  11. Dark chocolate …..
    Harry & David dark chocolate
    Dove dark chocolate
    Hershey’s special dark chocolate
    Orange Peel in Dark Chocolate by Chocolove (made with Belgian chocolate).
    I could go on but enuff said :).

  12. Cheryl, your “extra sweet giveaways” are “extra sweet of you”. I have to say that mini Reeses Peanut Butter Cups are my favorite candy, but Dark Chocolate Hershey Kisses are close second.
    You amaze me by the way you are able to find “messages” to write from everyday events. You are good! Norma

  13. CHOCOLATE!!! I love almost any kind of chocolate, as long as it doesn’t mix with mint. Why would anyone want to mess up good chocolate with a fresh minty flavor? :)

    some of my faves:
    hershey’s with almonds
    my mom’s homemade chocolate frosting

    I love all chocolate but especially chocolate and peanut butter together!


  15. Cheryl,

    You remind me of something Henry Ward Beecher once said:

    “Do not keep the alabaster boxes of your love and tenderness sealed up until your friends are dead. Fill their lives with sweetness!”

    My favorite comfort candies are peanut m&ms and chocolate covered raisins paired with something salty. My decadent sweet tooth appreciates any handmade Belguim or Swiss Chocolate truffle laced with cognac. Chocolate and peanut butter crashing together is divine too!

  16. Thanks for the awesome giveaway I love my plain twix candy bars!
