Happy Pink Saturday!

Hello everyone and Welcome to Rose Chintz Cottage~ 
I hope you all enjoyed a wonderful week. I am delighted you have stopped by today for Pink Saturday! Please come in and take a look at the amazing Giveaway I received in the mail this week.

Wendy @ Once Upon A Rose Haven was having a Giveaway and I won! She is a most generous lady and I am so pleased with the goodies she sent me. And since there is a lot of pink in the package, I thought I would share it with you today. So grab your cup of coffee or tea and take a peek~

It all came wrapped up in this pretty pink floral gift wrap.

Upon opening the box, I was met with yet more pink. Wendy had wrapped up everything individually in pink gift wrap. It felt like Christmas!

I unwrapped each gift one by one and admired it, oohing and aahing as I went.
Here is what she sent me, all the way from Tennesee...A most generous gift, yes?

A sweet pink teacup card with a lovely message inside.

A package of pink notecards.

A box of fragrant pink peony-rose scented soap roses.

A sweet pink patterned watering can.

A floral coffee/tea mug with matching cover/coaster. As you can see there are lovely pink roses on it.

And the piece de resistance...

A pretty Sadler full-sized teapot, covered in a Spring floral motif. Irises, daffodils, crocuses, and pink tulips.

If any of you know me, you know I am especially loving the teapot and the mug!
I hope you will pay Wendy a visit. She is a most gracious lady. Thank you Wendy!

Beverly is the hostess of this meme and I hope you will plan to spend some time this weekend visiting her and her party of pinkies. Thank you for visiting me today and have a lovely pink weekend. God bless you!

NOTE~ I am having trouble commenting on many of your blogs. I promise you, if I visit you, I will try to leave a comment.

Spiritual Sundays ~ Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving weekend to all my Canadian friends!

It is Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada and I thought I would share some things that I am thankful for...

I am thankful for the many blessings in my life; the love of my family and friends, my home, the clothes in my closet, and good food on the table. I never ever take those blessings for granted!

I am thankful for the freedom I have in this country to worship God. 

I am thankful for prayer...
Many of you have prayed for me this past year and I want to thank you.
"The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much." ~ James 5:16

I am thankful for the Word of God...
"He gives power to the weak, and to those who have no might He increases strength." ~ Isaiah 40:29
When I am weak, He makes me strong.

"Whatever is true, honourable, right, pure, lovely, of good report ...let your mind dwell on these things." ~ Philippians 4:8
Letting my mind dwell on pleasant things, keeps me in a positive frame of mind when perhaps everything around me is telling me otherwise.

The Lord has rescued me from so many things and in so many ways that I can't help but give Him praise for the good things in my life.

"Bless the Lord, O my soul; and all that is within me, bless His holy name!
Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget none of His benefits;
Who pardons all your iniquities; Who heals all your diseases;
Who redeems your life from the pit;
Who crowns you with loving kindness and compassion;
Who satisfies your years with good things,
So that your youth is renewed like the eagle." ~ Psalm 103: 1-5


Please join our lovely hostess Charlotte who hosts Spiritual Sundays every week. You will be inspired and encouraged. The Lord bless you today and I pray you too will count your blessings!
