day 9: next best thing and a crazy love giveaway

I once saw a comedy skit years ago in which the comedian shared the joys of being next. I still smile about it because it brilliantly captures the thrill of being "next" - especially after standing in a long line. Think about that for a second.

 Of course, we all like to be first, but it was funny to think about being excited because you were next. And letting everyone in line go ahead of you simply because you enjoyed your "nextness." I don't think I'll take that revelry quite that far, but I am asking God to show me who I can let go first. It's today's "Loving Others" challenge (see below)

And it only seems fitting to do a giveaway for a book which is all about the Deep Love Dive: Crazy Love by Francis Chan. Here's  a chance to win a copy for yourself or someone else in case you missed it (as I did) when it came out a couple of years ago.
