Triple Etsy Giveaway


Dear Friends,

Have you ever had a friend who just kept blessing your life so much, you felt like there was no way you could ever repay them?

Someone who just always made you feel so special, always took the time for you, or said nice things to you.... someone who stood by you when things were tough, and rejoiced with you when life was good?

Well, YOU are that someone to me. If you are a reader here on Lily's blog... whether that's been for many months or a few days, you have blessed my life. Just knowing that there are people who are following along on this journey with us, cheering Lily on, praying for her, and loving her means so much to me.

One of my favorite scriptures is this one:

"A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pitchers of silver." Proverbs 25:11

That's a perfect picture of what your comments mean to me.


And honestly, I could never repay you all for the kindness you've paid to me and to Lily and to my family. Whether that has been through heartfelt comments, or voting for Lily's picture in a photo contest, or just visiting her blog...seriously, you all are the best.


And to thank you for being just that- the best- I asked some of my favorite Etsy sellers if they would donate some gift credits for a giveaway....and they graciously agreed!


Photobucket


This darling etsy shop has the sweetest assortment of hairclips for children. I saw this birdie clip and ordered it immediately for my Lilybird...

Photobucket


The thing I love about it is that it actually stays in Lily's super-fine hair. It's made with this really cool non-slip fabric, and it really does stay put!

Photobucket

Shining Stars Boutique is donating a ten dollar gift credit to one random commenter!


Next is Etsy shop:

Growing Up Wild


Photobucket


I found this shop by typing "bird" in Etsy's search engine...and fell in looooove with these crib shoes....

Okay you have won! At last I will leave a comment;)
Let me introduce myself my name is Jessica, I´m 21 years old and live in Leipzig, Germany. And I love your blogs.
I visit them for maybe a week or two. I discover them, when I was on Reece´s Rainbow. I´m a prayer warrior, too. I love this organization. I love the idea of helping children with special needs to find a family or is it the other way round?^^ I´m praying that more children will get a forever family, maybe one will find this home in the family of your son and his wife? I must confess I take both to my heart, just like your angel Lily, you and the rest of your family. I´m praying for Jason and Naomi. I sympathize with their wish to adopt. I want to adopt a child, too. But I´m too young :`-( . So I´m trying to use the time to get as much information as I can for preparing to adopt and have a child. Hopefully Jason and Naomi haven´t to wait so long.
Okay now back to your cutie Lily! She is so beautiful and amazing. And you dress her so cute, that I´m always saying to my fiancĂ©: "ooh look isn´t she cute." I´m showing him her pictures almost every day;) I adore the pictures of her. She is really enriching my day. Just as the texts you write. They are touching my heart very often. And I have to say I´m really impressed of you. Managing such a big family, I child with special needs and your home. WOW! Respect! You are really blessed. I hope the lord will go on to bless you so much.
Okay the last thing I want to mention is the giveaways you have this time. I visit the shops and I love all of it. The pink owl hair clip the shining star boutique sells is so cute or the ladybug on a green leaf hair clip! On the growing up wild shop I love the "just hatched" onesie. But I can´t say what I prefer on the BabyKdesigns Shop, it looks all amazing!
You really have a good taste;)
Okay I´m writing for over a half hour now. Time to clean our apartment...
I wish you a great day and God bless you all.
Kind regards
Jessica

PS: I love the pink heart pancakes! Next Valentine day I will make them, too. And the idea of notes under the chair is great...

It´s me again. I saw this just on godtube.com

Maybe it´s a possibility for Jason and Naomi:

I hope it will help!

P.S. Patti, can I just tell you that you are one of the neatest people I have ever "met"? Sometimes when I pray...I pray for a heart more like Patti's:) And I just love the song you have on here...Rescue the Perishing. Very neat song! Thanks for being such a blessing in my life! And of course sweet little Lily too! Praying for your son and daughter-in-law. God has a plan in his time:) Not that you all don't already know that!

Hey Lily and her Mommy,

Here is Jessica again (first comment). It seems like my second comment gets lost-.-. So I will post it again:

Yesterday I found this on Godtube.com:
http://www.godtube.com/watch/?v=9M9CEJNU

Maybe this a big opportunity for Jason and Naomi! This could be a way to get the money for adoption. I hope they could do it. Here is the link from the video:
http://samaritanfundraising.com/

I´m still praying for all of you and especially them. God will show them their right way.

God bless you.
Jessica

Patti said...

Jessica! So YOU are my German visitor, ha:) SO glad to finally "meet" you! Your words were so kind, I hope you keep coming back- Lily needs such a sweet friend in her corner!
