let your light shine - a giveaway!

It's no secret that I love words.  Love. Them.  All of them. 

Except writhe.  I have never liked the word writhe.

Other than that though, I'm a FAN of the words.  It completely fascinates me that just 26 letters make up millions of words, and those words can make you think and cry and dream and laugh (those are my favorites) and apologize and change and forgive and imagine.  

I have a lot of words around my room... 

 And now, I have a new addition to my word collection.
 Let your light shine. 

Seventeen little letters.  Four little words.  And a whole lot of meaning.
This plaque is from Dayspring, and this month's theme for their Inspired Deals page is "As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord." 

Turns out I loved words so much that I majored in English during college.  Which consequently means that I do not have a house at this point in my life, but instead a lovely little bedroom in my parent's home.  However, I can do my best to serve the Lord and let my light shine in my tiny little corner of the world!  
And here's the best news!  I have a $20.00 Dayspring credit to give away to one person who comments on this post between now and Friday night.

For one entry, check out the Dayspring store and come back and tell me your favorite item. 

For a second entry, tell me your favorite four word quote or verse or phrase!

Dayspring provided me with this product for review.  However, all opinions are my very own.  And they are priceless.  Also, it makes me feel very official and grown up to type this fine print disclosure statement.

I love quotes!! Of course,now that I've said that I can't think of a good one.This is a good one:

"A good character is the best tombstone. Those who loved you and were helped by you will remember you when forget-me-nots have withered. Carve your name on hearts, not on marble." ~Charles H. Spurgeon

ps. I hate the word gunk. Yuck!

I love the phrases that say Faith hope or Grace because that is my babies names

Mrs. K said...

I'm so indecisive. I love words, too, but all the ones I keep thinking of are the ones I don't like...like perforated. blah. Silly word.

Anyway, I like the scripture/personalized necklaces by Lisa
(and, ya know, everything else on the website!)

Perhaps I'll think about the 4 word phrase and get back to you.

Pamela said...

I love the sign that you have! Too cute!

Julianna said...

I really love how you explained your love for words. That's all :)
