Blessed {Giveaway}

Blessed {Giveaway}

Next week we’ll be kicking off annual Fall Nesting Series and Parties here at The Inspired Room. YAY! Can you believe October is almost here? I am so excited! This is MY FAVORITE time of year and it is one I look forward to sharing with you all every single year.

One of the reasons I love doing this Fall series is because it is so important to me to slow down and remember to count blessings. It’s easy to lose sight of what we have right in front of us because we are so busy looking towards the next big thing we want or the next big project on our to do list.

Blessed {Giveaway}

Fall is the season for me where staying home and nesting is a way to reconnect with those blessings under my own roof, to remember what I love about creating a home for my family, and to just spend time being grateful for all I have. It is a time to SAVOR.

The first week of the Fall Nesting series, on the very first Tuesday of the month (October 9), we’ll be having a link-up party on the topic of 20 Little Things we love about Fall. I love creating lists like that because it helps me to remember what REALLY matters to me and keeps everything else in perspective. We’ve done many of those lists over the years here on this blog, and it is amazing how many things you can find to be grateful for when you take the time to think about it!

So start writing your 20 Little Things list and be ready to share it on your blog, Facebook or in my comments NEXT week, on Tuesday! I’ll have a button later this week that you can add to your blog for your 20 Little Things I Love About Fall post.

Blessed {Giveaway}

I’ve been using this magnetic calendar from DaySpring in a bit of a unique way, I use it as a daily reminder to sit down and just BE grateful before I start my day. Life gets so busy. We have more and more responsibilities on our plate. And if we aren’t careful, we’ll fill up our days with more and more and MORE and have LESS and LESS time to just BE.

Blessed {Giveaway}

Every morning when I come into my office, I move that arrow on the calendar to the new day and take a few moments to be mindful of everything I have and to be grateful for how blessed we are. When I start the day off with that intentional and purposeful attitude of gratitude, it is so much easier to keep my priorities in order and remember what really matters.

Because it is Monday, we might as well make the best of it, right?

So, we have a great giveaway today from our awesome friends at DaySpring!!

There will be FIVE winners in all!

Each winner will receive beautiful and cheery Blessings canvas by artist Jeanne Winters and one of those ADORABLE and useful magnetic calendars.

And in honor of the first week of Fall, here’s a DaySpring coupon code for $10 off any order of $25 or more:

INSPIRED10 – good through the end of September.

That means you can get the Blessings Canvas or Magnetic calendars at a great discount through the end of the month! Or, use the discount code on anything else you’d like from DaySpring! Christmas shopping, anyone?

    I’m greatful that our home only knows peace. We check all issues at the front door and work to make it a place of comfort, laughter and support.

    I’m greatful for two wild littles, who are so different from each other, but keep the house full of fun.

    I’m greatful for a loving, hard working and generous husband. He embraces me and all of my interests, even if they change daily. He takes great care of his family, and always makes me feel like like most important person on earth!

    This is never an easy question because there is so much to be grateful for. But the main things in life that I am grateful are the hard lessons. Yes, I said the hard lessons. I am grateful for the hard lessons because they teach me to be stronger. They also teach me to be a better person and to truly love others.

    I am also grateful for my faith. My faith helps me to be strong in situations where I would normally have a very hard time, so my faith is another thing that I am very grateful for.

  472. Leander (Lee) Beatty

    I am thankful for God’s grace and mercy. He has truly kept me, protrcted me from dangers seen and unseen, forgiven my sins when others would not.

    I am thankful for gainful employment. So many others have lost positions to downsizing and eliminations, but through it all, I still have a place to come to everyday.

    I am thankful for restoration with my family. For years, we were estranged. One day, after intense prayer, I received a call from one of my sisters. That led to numerous calls back and forth, followed by reunions, reconciliation and love renewed. It turns out that whatever caused uis to separate in the first place was long forgotten and the love is not only restored, it is a Godly love, meaning unconditional.

    I give God all the praise and the honor and I thank Him for changimng my countenance to one of joy.

    God bless all of you.

  542. Lori Williams

    I am very thankful first of all for my salvation, that God would send His only Son, Jesus, to die for my sins and all the sins of the world. Then that He would reach down to me, even when I wanted nothing to do with Him, and draw me to himself, give me a heart that cried out in repentance and faith, and grant me salvation. That was 14 years ago. I am also very thankful that He didn’t just leave me after He saved me, that every day He is with me and changing me all the time to be more like Jesus. Without Him, I could do nothing! I am thankful that He knows how much my heart is hurting because I haven’t seen my oldest son 7 years, and have never met his children, my grandchildren, my middle son recently told us that he is gay, my daughter is running after everything but God and is constantly lieing to us, my husband lost his job 3 months ago and is very discouraged, the bills keep coming even though the income doesn’t, our home is in need if major repairs from hurricane damage years ago, and I want to give up. So very thankful that God will not let me!! He is always faithful, even when I am not.
