We Are Grateful-Give-Away! Look and See What is Included!

Hi Friends~

I hope you are all having a wonderful autumn...winter in some parts.  I hope the air is just cool enough to breathe easily, and that the leaves are beautiful proof of God's greatness. It is now the day after Thanksgiving.  I pray that everyone had a blessed day, and that you were able to really concentrate on the many ways that He blesses us every day.

I hope you will forgive my absence for the last few weeks.  Our Internet service has worked on for a few minutes, off for a long time. This post has taken about 3 weeks.   I have the capabilities to post on my cell phone...but it is so difficult for me to use the keyboard on the phone.  A sentence here and there maybe, but a whole post...I am so sorry.  At least it is working right now!  (As I wait for the service man to get here and fix it for good!)

I want to share a photo of what is being given away in our "We Are Grateful--Give-Away!"  We are so grateful that the Lord is in our lives, in our hearts, in our actions.  Not just on Thanksgiving, but every day.

Here is a list of items starting on the left side of the phot


 Join us: for our We Are Grateful-Give-Away!

A frame with strawberries on it/a slightly used "unicorn stamp" by Commotion Rubber Stamps/a "pine fan stamp" by just for fun/(holiday lights stamp" by G/a used inchie stamp that says "SUPER"/a new Judith's "sprig stamp"/ 4 acrylic stamps by Provo Crafts Clear Impressions- (3 snowman on one stamp-a snowman with all of his gear to put on on one stamp- a snow stamp on one- a mitten on one-all new)/a used All Night Media, Winnie the Pooh and Friends stamp/a Hero Arts, Art Prints slightly used rose with French words that I have no idea what they mean/a Large lightly used heart wreath with roses by Me & Carrie Lou/5 pre-cut purses in 5 sizes and different colors by Paper Cellar (envelopes included)/a set of 12 blue glitter transfer iron-ons/an acrylic slightly used frame style acrylic stamp that reads "Seasons Greetings"/a 2013 calendar/2 sheets of Paper Cellar beautiful Christmas Theme stick-ons/A unused Stampin-Up flower and pod from 2002/New stamp from Anitas that reads "Jesus is the Reason for the Season"/18 pieces of Pretty Ware rhinestones/ and other wonderful surprises!  So, please post the photo on your blog and let us know, that will count for an extra entry.

It is my hope that when you visit this blog and post a reason telling what you are grateful will make your hearts ready to thank Him every day enter our We Are Grateful-Give-Away.  And, remember, every time you go to our Comment Section and post a reason why you are Grateful or Thankful, it is one entry for this amazing drawing of stamps, paper and embellishments!  You can enter once a day...any day!

You may continue to post reasons for being Grateful until Midnight on the 30th of November.  The next day, I will take every entry, from every person, even if you have 31 entries, and have one entry chosen randomly.  The Recipient of the "We Are Grateful--Give-Away!" will be announced in a special post.  You must have an address in America.  Perhaps a friend or relative who will send it to you if you don't?  Because the postage is going to be too much for me to purchase.  Also, usually Joan and Karen, members of our Prayer Team aren't eligible for prizes...this is for everyone! (Except me...these are my things.)

So, feel free to continue making a Gratitude List in out comment section.  It is easy to do...once a visit, or once a day...just include the day or date if it is in the same comment section.  Also, please feel free to ask for us to pray for any prayer requests.  We are so grateful that you are visiting this blog, and hopefully sharing the love of Jesus in your actions with others!

He IS Able!

  1. Friday: I am so thankful that YOU stop by and read what you want...whether it is "His Word" on the side bar, or the "Post of the Day", or the hand-made card on the right side. It is our hope that you will become closer to the Lord by learning more about Him, and sharing Him with Believers and non-Believers alike. Thank you for being here!

    And, I am so grateful that the Lord allows me to serve Him via this blog.
