Easter Blessings and my secret drawing winner!

Thank you all for your sweet comments and well wishes to me on my blog anniversary. To say your kind words touched my heart is an understatement!

If you read my last post, I said I had a secret way to celebrate it, so I'll explain!
I decided to have a secret giveaway for those who commented on my blogiversary post from Tuesday until today and then find a winner and the winner is....

Marcia!!! from Blessedmomssimplehome.blogspot.com!
And this is what you've won - the Easter bunny pillow that I hand stitched, pictured above, and also some goodies from N. Ireland.
Thank you all once again for your friendship - it is such a blessing!

Already today we have remembered the Lord's death on the cross and thanked Him for dying as
the bearer of our sins that we might be saved. I love those verses in Philippians 2, 5-11, of which this is an extract,
'And being found in fashion as a man He humbled Himself and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.' Praise His name He cried 'It is finished!' and our redemption through faith in His atonement was complete! He has paid it all!

Have a blessed Easter Sunday and remember He is risen!

  2. Oh Christine, thank you so much. I was so excited to see that I won! I just called my girls to show them this sweet pillow, and they're excited for me too. I think Serena will just be excited to get something with postmarks from Ireland. She's the daughter that tells me she wants to move there someday.
    How thankful I am that Christ paid for my sins on that cross.
    Have a glorious Easter.
    Blessings,
    Marcia

  11. Hi Christine! Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment on my laundry room :) I am not sure how easily the decals come off the wall. They do say that you can't take them off and re-apply. I am sure removing the decal wouldn't damage the paint though.

    Have a great day!
