I Won A Giveaway!

I have never won a giveaway before ever. I was very excited to win Delvalina's lovely giveaway in honor of her graduation, and I have been eagerly awaiting the package in the mail! Today was a very cold, gray, rainy and terribly dreary day, and the package came at the perfect time to brighten my day!


A wonderful necklace, and charming bookmark! And beautiful flowered stationery. Delightful!


The bookmark is adorable, I put it in my Bible right away. I follow Professor Grant Horner's Bible-reading system, and I had been wanting a new bookmark for one of the single books (Psalms, Proverbs and Acts). I think it will either be my Psalms or Proverbs bookmark, but I'm not definitely decided yet. By the way, if you haven't heard of Prof. Horner's system, you should definitely check it out! I'm finishing up my second year (my 2011 New Year's resolution was to try the system for a month, and I loved it so much, I didn't stop!) so I have read the whole Bible at least twice since then, and many parts more!


The necklace went nicely with what I was already wearing today, so I put it on, and wore it the rest of the day. I'm so thrilled with it! Mom noted that it suits me very well, it fits perfectly with my style. It's also adjustable, so it will be very versatile and I will certainly be wearing it a lot!

I'm so grateful for these lovely giveaway gifts, and especially thankful for my sweet friend. Thank you so much, Delvalina!

I know I haven't been posting much lately, but I hope to post more in the future! Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

  1. Oh my dear friend Lizzy,

    I didn't know that you put thin on your blog. I was wondering other day if you could post it and yes you did. I was thinking of you today and I just wanted to stop in your page and I found this beautiful post.
    Thank you so much that you really appreciate this. I'm thankful to the Lord that the package made it safely to you.
    Then your mom has a good taste :)
    I never heard about that reading system but I am on my way to check it up.
    Thanks alot for sharing and have a lovely day!
    Much Love,
    Delvalina

    1. Yes, I put up the post almost immediately after messaging you on fb! =)
      I really love Professor Horner's Bible-reading system! It's a lot of reading at first, but I've gotten faster, and I'm a fast reader anyway, so my Bible study/prayer/memory verse time in the morning only takes about an hour total. Let me know what you think if you try it!
