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:

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 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.

    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.

  659. Katherine Jones

    God blessed my husband and I with a “starter” home 30 years ago, which we never left and now are fixing up for our retirement. Over those years we raised 3 children, 2 dogs, numerous cats and kittens, but most importantly it was a refuge for my disabled mother to come and visit and gave her respite from her assisted living home (a chance to get away for awhile to come and visit with her family,have a sandwich and chips – they don’t make bologna and cheese and give potatoe chips at her facility) and enjoy a nice winter fire and good conversation with her daughter. Our home provided her a celebration for every holiday she enjoyed throughout her life and even served as her last “coming home” when she passed away this past March. We held her memorial service where she most enjoyed being here on earth…our small but cozy home. Three yeaers ago we also adopted a rescue cat who had many ailments including kitty Aids. He would have died within two weeks if we hadn’t rescued him when we did. In 2007 he had been seen being hit by 2 cars in one day and he had been living all his life at my husband’s work – a meat plant. He was malnourished had skin cancer, infected teeth, and much more wrong with him. I made up our guest room for him to segregate him from our other cats and proceeded to take care of him with IV’s, insulin shots, and many vet visits – all the while being blessed with his gratefulness and love and my own sense of fulfillment (now being an empty-nester and at this time my mother in a nursing home where I could no longer take care of her). This kitty helped me so much when my mother passed that I knew it was no coincidence God put him in my life when he did. God took him home at the right time, too, because when he passed in July, I went into emergency surgery for a herniated disc….God knew I couldn’t take care of anyone but myself for now, so He made sure my kitty Good Boy was safe in His Will so I wouldn’t have to worry. Now God has put it on my heart to write a book about this kitty (he also saved our lives in April 2010 when he alerted us to a major gas leak and high carbon monoxide levels that were in our home). I am thankful for my husband of 30 years, my home and family, including all of our furry ones,but most of all I amthankful that God has provided a way for me to see my wonderful Christian mother again some day in Heaven by accepting Him into my heart as my own personal Lord and Savior! I do not write this to win anything…please give it to someone more needy than me, but I write it to express my gratefulness to God for all He has done for and given me all throughout my life! I have always just asked to be in His Will, and He has always put me where I needed to be. That is where I’ll be if you’re ever looking for me. Look in the future for my book called “You Don’t Have To Eat Dirt Anymore – The Story Of Good Boy, The Cat With Ten Lives”….Lord willing I’ll have it finished within a year or two….as this is my first book and I haven’t a clue as to how to do this, it’ll take me awhile to figure it all out. I know God will lead me in this venture as He has lead all the ventures in my life. Wish me luck…and Godspeed!

  660. Peggy C.

  754. sue swinford

    I am home bound due to physical problems and sit in front of my patio window many hours of the day watching the multitude of birds. I was so grateful today to see a brand new unique bird and searched and found it was a Northern Flicker. This may not sound like much to many people, but for me it was a sheer blessing from the Creator for me to absolutely be thrilled. I am grateful today because my husband who is a truck driver made it home. It’s hard for me to do things and get around, so this was a gift from God (and everyday that he is able to make it home). The 3rd blessing of this day is that God has given me another day to live and praise Him for all He’s done in my life and see how he blesses others, even when they don’t even realize it themselves. Everyday there are abundant blessings for us to recognize in many ways, shapes and forms…even spotting a new bird.
