Three men were hiking through a forest when they came upon a large raging, violent river. Needing to get to the other side, the first man prayed: “God, please give me the strength to cross the river.”
Poof! God gave him big arms and strong legs, and he was able to swim across in about two hours, almost drowning twice.
After witnessing this, the second man prayed: “God, please give me the strength and the tools to cross the river.”
Poof! God gave him strong arms, strong arms, and a rowboat, and he was able to row across in about an hour, almost capsizing only once.
Poof! God turned him into a woman. She checked the map, hiked five minutes upstream, and crossed at the bridge.
To celebrate the upcoming Earth Day holiday (April 22nd), every Friday this month, I will be giving away an Earth-friendly, “green” book for Free Book Friday. This week’s “green” offering is It’s Easy Being Green: A Handbook for Earth-Friendly Living by Crissy Trask.
Special guidelines for a special giveaway:
To enter the drawing for this book, please share at least one way in which you intend to be more “green” & Earth-friendly in the coming year. And please include the code FBF—for “Free Book Friday”—to let me know you’re interested in the drawing. (U.S. residents only for the prize, please, but everyone is welcome to chat.)
Winner will be announced during our Happy Sunday post on…well, you know, Sunday. Winner is responsible for contacting me with her mailing information—i.e. I will not be contacting you—so be sure to check back in or you might not even know you won! :crying (If prize isn’t claimed within 14 days, another name may be drawn or item may be tossed back into the goody bag to be re-used for a future giveaway.)
P.S. Please note that we have a very special Earth Day Giveaway coming up later this month. On Friday, April 22nd—which happens to be Earth Day!—we will be giving away this very special Earth Day prize pack:
