Don't let the difficulties of the present moments overshadow the reality of God's promises. God's promises still stand. And God's promises are stronger than our failures.

Here's Your Chance!

Here it is, your one and only to get something hand made by me! See that Pay It Forward widget over there on the right? I've joined Bonnie over at Calamity Jane's Cottage in this little pass it on game. Here's how it works (yes I'm copying it from Bonnie cause why retype if you don't have to!):

It’s based of the concept of the movie “Pay it Forward” where acts or deeds of kindness are done without expecting something in return, just passing it on, with hope that the recipients of the acts of kindness pass it on. So here’s how it works. I will make and send a handmade gift to the first 3 people who leave a comment to this post on the blog requesting to join this PIF exchange. I do not know what that gift will be yet, and it won’t be sent this month, probably not next month, but it will be sent (within 6 months) and that’s a promise! What YOU have to do in return, then, is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog.

I've actually done this Pay It Forward exchange before and enjoyed it so much that I wanted to do it again. It's really fun to make something for someone else for no particular reason except that I want to. I have absolutely no idea right now what I'm going to make but I promise it won't be home baked because you know how I am about cooking - not so good. It will definitely be something stitched and you will definitely get it sooner rather than later. Bonnie said within 6 months but I'll go her one better and say within 3 months. :)

Now remember you have to be in the first three that sign up to do this (you can comment without signing up!) and you have to pass it on. Be sure I have your e-mail or your blog address so I can get in touch with you.

Now when I say go ya'll can fight over me. Go!

Oh heck, how can I refuse such an offer ;>)
I've been avoiding these PIFs only because the stress of having to make something on a schedule of a year is intimidating...hee hee but you're such a good blog buddy that I can no longer resist!

Glad I am 4th - it is wonderful idea but don't need to add to my obligations at the moment. You are so sweet and I can't wait to see what winners get. Brenda

I tried to write a funny cliche comment, but I am useless with cliches and jokes - it made no sense, at all. Really sorry to have missed out on the exchange and the chance to have a family heirloom. Have fun!

Linda said...

Oh I love PIF"s too but I am facing additional dental surgery so I'll pass and see what fun you all have!

How nice of you. The first 3 gals on your comment list will be lucky to get something nice from you.

You got one gift and are giving away three...now that is generous.

You are a sweetheart.

Marie said...

Wonderful idea Marilyn. Your first three are three very lucky ladies!

What a wonderful thing to do...you are so sweet.

I got my special gift yesterday and I want to say thank you...thank you...thank you. I do not think I have ever had anything with my name on it before. Your kindness means so much to me! You are one very special lady in my life as well as the lives of others!

This sounds like a fun thing to do. Maybe I'll try it later. I'm hibernating this month and not taking on a lot so February will be a better option for me.

Angie said...

Marlene, my dear, you give to us all constantly - every entry you make is a gift to us and I love you and your blog to bits so I'm not bothered not to be in the winning 3.

love, Angie, xx

I hope you will post pictures of what you give away... I'd love to have a look (and probably be really really envious...)
