Hey y’all!! Free stuff alert!!!
To celebrate reaching 100+ followers on the blog, I’ve decided to do a fun giveaway to say how much I appreciate you!
I love when you open up a post or an article, and the author seems to have taken all of the scattered pieces of your brain and heart and soul that are bouncing around in space, and condenses them down into poignant and clear phrases and meaningful sentences that seem to speak your own heart back to you more clearly than you were able to yourself. It is so comforting to read that someone else has been there and made it through and is able to lend some clarity to your own emotions and moment in life. I am so far from being one of those writers at the moment, but that is what I dearly want to be — I based my blog off of the verse from 2 Corinthians 1:4 that says “He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us. ” (NLT). I want to do simply that — to pass on the comfort and clarity that I have received, to whomever needs it that day. I’m so glad I get to talk to you!
I know that there are much bigger blogs out there, with thousands upon thousands of followers, but I am so humbled that, to date, 105 people have decided to stick around to see what I have to say. I feel like God gives me things that I need to say, that press on my heart and mind and spirit until I share them, and I am so encouraged that 105 of you are still interested in what He has to say. A lot of the “popular” blogs out there today never ever reference the Scriptures or what God has to say about anything, and it gives me great hope that 105 of you still care about God and what He says about life.
To say thank you, I’m giving away one of my new projects, a handpainted box sign! To enter, all you have to do is subscribe to the blog, if you haven’t already, and drop a comment on this post with the best piece of advice you’ve ever received! I can’t wait to read them! I will do a drawing this Friday, May 17th, and will announce the winner shortly thereafter.
Thank you all so much, from the bottom of my heart, for visiting and sticking around my little corner of the world — may God bless you!
