One Thousand Gifts Giveaway

is giving away this treasure!

Rene has been posting quotes
from the book this week,
and it sounds amazing!

Here is the book review of
One Thousand Gifts
from Rene's blog:


This book cuts straight to the heart of loss
and asks the questions you are afraid to ask.
It goes straight to the issues.

Just like you,
Ann Voskamp hungers to live her one life well.
Forget the bucket lists
that have us escaping our everyday lives
for exotic experiences.

'How,' Ann wondered, 'do we find joy in the midst of
deadlines, debt, drama, and daily duties?
What does the Christ-life really look like
when your days are gritty, long--and sometimes even dark?

How is God even here?'

In One Thousand Gifts,
Ann invites you to embrace everyday blessings
and embark on the transformative spiritual discipline
of chronicling God's gifts.

It's only in this expressing of gratitude
for the life we already have,
we discover the life we've always wanted...

a life we can take,

give thanks for,

and break for others.

We come to feel and know the impossible
right down in our bones:
we are wildly loved--by God.

Let Ann's beautiful, heart-aching stories
of the everyday
give you a way of seeing
that opens your eyes to ordinary amazing grace,
a way of being
present to God that makes you deeply happy,
and a way of living that is finally fully alive.

Come live the best dare of all!


Sounds great, doesn't it!

For your chance to own this amazing book,
before Sunday, Nov. 28th!

And don't forget to check her other
posts from this week for more inspiration!

Happy Thanksgiving!

May your day be blessed!!!

Happy Birthday From Across the Miles!

Seems like the only craft/project I've
been able to keep up with lately 
has been making cards
for special friends.

And today is my friend, Karmin's birthday!


May God bless you with a 
special day!
Know that you are thought of today,
and greatly missed!

White Wednesday

A few weeks ago
I received a surprise package from
my mom in Colorado.

Inside was this beautiful

Isn't it gorgeous?!

or how to display it...

Any ideas?

Do tell!!!!

I'm all ears!
