(in)courage...review and giveaway!

CLOSED!!

I love a little "bling" now and then.  What girl doesn't?  Nothing too extravagant for me, though.  I'm a litle more "understated."

On a daily basis, I wear my wedding band, a pair of stud earrings, and a necklace.  I used to wear a watch, but I got out of the habit.  I wear the same jewelry EVERY day.  I'm boring.

I was given the opportunity recently, though, to receive a God’s Heart for You necklace from (in)courage by Dayspring ministries.  (in)courage is a great online community of love and encouragement for women of God...and for women to become women of God!

  The necklace they sent is beautiful!  


I was concerned from the picture that the pendant would be a little large for my taste, but it's absolutely perfect.  Each side of the pendant has a different word: Created, Chosen, Celebrated, and Cherished.


And they serve as constant reminders of God's love for me!  The words are so powerful:
created
I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
Psalm 139:14 NIV
chosen
The Lord has chosen you to be His treasured possession.
Deuteronomy 14:2 NIV
celebrated
He will take great delight in you…
He will rejoice over you with singing.
Zephaniah 3:17 NIV
cherished
I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with loving-kindness.
Jeremiah 31:3 NIV

 The tab on the (adjustable length) chain shows just one more reminder of God's plan.


I JUST noticed that there's a tiny heart on the end of the pendant as well!  I hadn't seen that before!

I put the necklace on right away, and true to my typical form, haven't taken it off.  So, for several days now I've slept in it, showered in it, etc., and it is still as shiny and beautiful as it was at the very beginning!  (It may have a bit more baby slobber on it now than it did right out of the package...it's been a great teething toy, too!)


If you love this necklace as much as I do, you can buy one here from Dayspring!  It's normally $35, but is currently on sale for $25!  There's also a 25% off coupon code this month!   Share your heart & God's love in February ~ Save 25% with code LOVE25.
OR 

You can win a $20 gift code to the Dayspring store right here on my blog!  I'd love to give it to you!  You will still be charged shipping, so please keep that in mind when deciding what to order!  Contest comments will close and a winner will be drawn on February 22, 2011 at 11:59am EST!

I would probably get the Tree of Life cuff bracelet, if I didn't buy the necklace that you show on your offer. And I like you via Google Friend Connect.

I don't know how to do the Google follow thing, but I just wanted to second your love of this print. I got to review this as well and it really is gorgeous!! You are so right to say that the pictures don't do it justice!

Forgive me...I'm a total dork. Between stopping what I was doing to do something for my four year old and then starting back on the blog thing, I forgot I'd moved on to a new page. I love the necklace and may just order one for myself. *sigh*

Meg said...

I follow you, and I would definitely put this toward the purchase of the necklace you reviewed. I've been eyeing it for a while!!

I follow via GFC. It's hard to decide what I would buy with the giftcard if I won. Either the
My Love for You - Love God - Garden Stepping Stone or I may put the $20 toward a tile set.
