Do I Have the Luck of the Irish?

I love receiving know snail mail. I have had my fair share lately. In the month of January I won five giveaways. I've also won one in February, and now one in March! That is way more than all of last year.

Some may say I am lucky; however, I truly believe I AM BLESSED! I believe the Lord is blessing us for doing the 12 Days of Giving in December when we didn't have a lot of extra money, but still gave with our hearts and out of love. When you give with a closed fist you can receive nothing in return. But, when you open your hand, you are an open hand giver and can also receive blessings. I've always been a giver at heart. However, I have been a closed fist giver at times. Thinking I would love to give when... I have more money, or if I could give BIG. On one income, things are tight...thus the closed fist. The Lord has opened my eyes. He loves a cheerful giver! I want to share because I want to remember my blessings.

What did I win in January?...

1. I won this Super Bowl pack and had a lot of fun using it on Super Bowl Sunday.

2. I won a free photo session with a local photographer...Laura from B Savvy Photography.

3. I won this wonderful clock from my blogging friend Tanya from Miller Racing Family.

It is in my office and will soon have all black/white pics of my family.

4. I won some great goodies from Tarah at Eyeglasses and Endzones.

Red scarf, red OPI nail polish, and $10.00 for movie.

So much fun!

5. I won Xazmin's fun "favorite things" from Tanielle from The Polka-Dot Daisy.

Popcorn and White Cheddar seasoning, Spray glitter, Mod Podge, "Be Prayerful", bath loofah sponge, three silver earrings, body spray, and Bodycology coconut lime shower gel and foaming bath.

I couldn't believe all that was packed into that box... we have a lot of similar favorite things! Now we are addicted to that popcorn seasoning!!

What did I win? February...

How about April?...

I won this awesome Cheetah Fit Band from Worthy of the Prize. "Fit Bands are fashionable wristlets and lanyards, designed by Mary Jo Smith of 517 Creations, that you wear while you warm-up, stretch, walk, jog, or cool-down during your workout." Or Fit Bands can be used by busy mom's and teachers who always have their hands full.

Trudy said...

I totally believe you on the God blessing you in kind. I don't believe in luck per se' goes against God IMO!

That's awesome that you've done so well. I think I fall somewhere in the middle...but mostly I am having the same thoughts you used to have...tough on one income, I can't do my fist is mostly closed. God is working with me on that!
