welcome friends.....thanks for popping in my world....
I'd love to know you've stopped by, so please note that the comment section is now found at the title of each post.

You are worth it!

.....God's grace and favor that is. Not sure who needs to hear that, but sometimes we all get in a rut thinking that only "other" people deserve God's blessings......or God has more important plans than our needs/prayers.

But the truth is.....we all are benefactors of God's inheritance when we accept Christ. An inheritance that includes unconditional love, peace in our hearts and eternal life. We receive the fruits of His Spirit which include love, joy, patience, forgiveness, faithfulness and self-discipline. These gifts give us the power to fulfill the destiny that God has planned for our life. They are what God places within us to draw others closer to Him.

He loves us all.....individually.

He knows the number of hairs on our head! So yeah, I'd say that He cares about every little detail in our lives....and wants to be part of every bit of it.



So I don't have a particular reason for posting all that....it just poured out for some reason. Maybe God knew someone might be popping in my world today and needed to be reminded of that. He loves YOU! Run to Him....He is waiting to bless you in more ways than you can imagine.

But I do have a reason for talking about blessings..... I want to have a little "pay it forward" kinda fun that my friend Amanda did on her blog. Basically, I will pick three people to send a little box of joy to.....it will just be filled with a few little trinkets to brighten your day (after all, everyone loves to get mail....well, except bills that is). The only thing you need to commit to is promising to have your own "pay it forward" fun on your blog with three more friends and note who blessed you (which would be moi!). You don't need to spend alot of money.....if you are crafty you can make something homemade....I am sure everyone will appreciate what you put together. Amanda sent me an adorable fabric bag, some cool stationary and some M & Ms (she even tucked in some extras for N.....thanks again Amanda!!)

So if you think this would be something you'd like to do.....leave a comment and say "I'm IN!" and I'll either use that random org. thingamajig to choose three of you......or put your names in a hat and let the kids pick. (you must be willing to give me your snail mail addy, of course.....I promise I am not a serial killer). I'll keep it open for a couple of days....

and even if you are not interested in the "pay it forward" game.....feel free to say hello and share what's going on in your world.

I hope your week is filled with happiness and joy.....I will be sharing the love with passing on an award that I was blessed with from Karen tomorrow! I might even snap a pic of me in the tiara that Amanda also included in my package.....

Neat idea! I can't play this time, due to a financial crunch, but I love the idea!! Maybe I will get to play next time!

I've been wanting to do a pif for ages now, maybe if I'm randomly selected it will be the kick in the butt I need to do it. ;)
