My Thanksgiving Challenge!

I'm participating in a Thanksgiving challenge this week, and I thought you might want to join me. Here's how:

Write down 10(or more=) things you are personally thankful for! Write that list in a comment to me, and then post it on your blog, (or email 10
friends,) and encourage your friends to do the same. Let's give thanks to God this thanksgiving!

Here's my 10 things I'm thankful for this Thanksgiving!

1. Salvation in Christ, and the freedom to follow Him without persecution.
2. The ability to study and memorize the Bible and be encouraged by it.
3. My family and friends who encourage me to follow Christ.
4. New responsibilities, and challenges that force me to pursue excellence.
5. The promise and hope God has given us in the future. 
6. My health, and mental stability to live for God.
7. Music, and the joy it brings to play and listen to it.
8. Each new day, and the opportunity to start again with a fresh perspective.
9. The ability to love and be loved, and the impact God's love has on all of us.
10. The examples of people who have lived for God, and how it makes me want to do the same.

May God bless you with a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends, and may we never forget how much we have to be thankful for. 

"O Give Thanks unto The Lord for He is good for His mercy endureth forever. " 1 Chronicles 16:34

I'm Hosting a........

Lila Rose Party!

For those of you that aren't framiliar with Lila Rose here's a breif description of the great products they offer. Lila Rose is a great resource for any beautiful hair accessories. I own three of their beautiful Flexi clips, and I use them in my hair on almost a daily basis. 

I simply LOVE this beautiful blue flexi. I own the small size, and find it very useful for dressing up a ponytail, or bun. It also fits with many different outfits that I own since I wear a lot of blue. 

The next Flexi I own is the Princes Tiarra silver flexi. It is simply beautiful, and useful for ANY outfit, since it is in my favorite neutral color. Also, you can't see it here, but the stone in the middle of the flexi spakles. It's very pretty.

And lastly, my favorite flexi is the Ruby Bouquet Red Felxi. This flexi is very beautiful, and works well for any dressy occasion. I always enjoy wearing it arround Christmas time especially. 

Lila Rose has many other great products which I can't wait to try their beautiful flexible headbands 

And now it's your turn to join my party, and purchase your very own Flexi clip, hair band, or sparkly bobby pins for your hair. Last year, I also purchased a gift card for a friend so that she could purchase her very own flexi clip. Lila Rose hair accessories are also a great gift ideas for Christmas, and you'll find that the recipeints will really enjoy wearing their flexis all through the year. In fact, I think I just gave myself an idea:) I think I'll head over to my party link to purchase some flexi's for my Mom for Christmas. 

Each purchase made through my party link will recieve free standard shipping, (on orders of $40 or more) and to the first three people who order through my party link-- will receive a free gift of either a bobby pin set of their choice or a mini flexi of their choice.  So check out the party link below to take advantage of the free shipping and special gift of your choice:)  (Note that this ends on the 15th so hurry!!!  :) :)

Oh, and if you purchase something, leave a comment and let me know:)

May God richly bless you this week! 

Happy Thanksgiving!
