Seven Years of Blogging - Giveaway

Seven Years

 Edited: My apologies to anyone who may have tried viewing the link to the Vintage Verses Etsy shop down below in this post! I just learned that I had linked to the wrong shop. It is corrected now! 

 I could hardly believe when looking back at my old posts at the beginning of this blog, that it has been seven years today since I started this blog. I don't keep up with it very well at all times, but I do hope and pray some things on here have been a blessing even in a small way to others through these years.  Many of your comments have often been a great encouragement to me, and I want to thank each one of you who has commented (or even just been an occasional reader) through the years! You've been a blessing to me! 

I thought it would be nice if I could ask each person who ever reads this blog (even if you've never commented before!) :) to leave me a comment participating in a giveaway as a small "thank you" for taking the time to read my blog and for being an encouragement to me.  If you are newer to my blog, please still feel welcome to join the giveaway. The gift won't be anything very elaborate, just something that I hope someone will enjoy and will be an encouragement to them! 

There will be two winners to this giveaway; please just let me know in your comment if there is a particular item you would prefer if you were the winner - I might be able to switch around what you receive.  

NOTE: If you live overseas or outside of the U.S., please feel free to join this giveaway by choosing Option #3 which is a digital download. I really wish I could offer all of these other items to you as well, but with shipping prices as high as they are, I hope you can understand my difficulty there!  

Winner #1: 

The owner of Vintage Verses on Etsy has so kindly agreed to donate one of her beautiful calligraphy prints for my giveaway, while I only pay the shipping!  If you win this, you will receive a quality print on parchment paper in the mail. Please be sure to visit her shop. 

Winner #2: 

The second winner of this giveaway will receive one of these small refrigerator magnets with a KJV Scripture verse. I've ordered a couple of these myself once, and they are nice magnets. They are the thin flexible type that measure about 2 1/2 inches or so wide. 

Winner outside of the U.S.:

**Digital, not a physical item.** I wanted to include something digital as an option, so those of you who live overseas can feel welcome to participate in this giveaway without costing me a lot with shipping. :) This is a PDF version of these printable Scripture verse cards. If you win this giveaway, you would not receive actual cards, only a digital download that you can print out for yourself. 

This giveaway will be open until 12:00 CT on May 9th, 
and the winners announced soon after. 

  I will bless the LORD at all times: His praise shall continually be in my mouth.

Psalm 34:1

Congratulations! You have continued on with your blog. The fact that is is not regular in no way detracts from the fact that when you post it, it is comforting and encouraging. Keep up the good work! I like the digital scriptures. Thank you for being a blessing.

Sarah said...

Congratulations on seven years of blogging! You have shared so many beautiful and inspiring posts over the past seven years. I am not always good about leaving comments these days, but I always do read your posts. Each one has been a blessing as you share your love for Jesus!

Thank you for the opportunity to enter your giveaway! The scripture themed items are all so lovely!

Dearest Sunshine, faithfulness over 7 years is Testament to our loving Father’s faithfulness to uphold us in good and hard times.
Praise His name for that and praise His name that there are still dear ones who testify faithfully.

May God bless you in it each step of the way as we walk with Him - never alone.

I'm actually really glad I'm overseas as I love very much the Digital verses and they'd really be useful to send around to folks in my mail each month to the oldies group in our church.
Had a look at the shop it has some really lovely things. Did they come from same store??

Thanks for your encouragement on my blog too. I've been busy this week with that oldies ministry so no time to pop over till now ❤🙏

Thanks for sharing, and may God bless you and keep you and all whom you love safe and well.
Prayer hugs, Shaz in Oz. X

Congratulations, Sunshine! I admit I don't visit as often as I should, but I do come through occasionally and I have you on my Reading List of blogs. :-) I have this part of a poem by Annie Johnson Flint printed on my iPad cover to remind me to be faithful even when it feels like my reach is very limited. Maybe it will encourage you too.

Fret not because thy place is small,
Thy service need not be,
For thou canst make it all there is
Of joy and ministry.

The dewdrop, as the boundless sea,
In God's great place has part;
And this is all He asks of thee;
Be faithful where thou art.
If I were to happen to win, I would actually like the digital file of the printable cards because they look like they could be useful for putting in letters or making cards. :-)

So sweet of you to mark your “anniversary “ with a giveaway! Since I just got a new fridge I’d love a new scripture magnet for it if I win! I love keeping scripture throughout the house for myself and anyone who happens to be in our home.
