While at Relevant, we were introduced to a number of sponsors who shared their goodies and vision with us. There was one sponsor who stood far out and above all the rest to me and that was Dayspring.
I've always been a Dayspring fan - I love their taste and style, love using their things in my home and sending their beautiful and meaningful cards! But, getting to meet some of the people behind it and hear their hearts was a very special thing for me! I prayed on the way home that God would provide a way for me to be involved in what they are doing.
One of the things we were offered as attendees of Relevant was to do a couple of Dayspring reviews on our blogs and yes, a giveaway! And, with that - I offer you the first!
Monday morning my doorbell rang and a box was deposited at my front door. I am always excited to open boxes that are dropped at my door and this was no exception. Especially because I knew what was in this box!
Oh, these Ever Grateful dishes - aren't they beautiful?! I love the colors, the designs and shapes and especially the messages included. David and I are praying about me selling with Blessings Unlimited and these dishes are the first thing I would hope to earn!
But, for now - I received this beautiful pitcher! It is big and well made and oh, I love what it says.
I was picturing some beautiful sunflowers or something in it and looked out the window to see if there was anything I could clip from the yard. Everything was plain green leaves - beautiful, but not what I had pictured.
I'm so glad I ventured outside to look more closely though. I was blessed by the simple grace of walking through my yard. And, the simple grace of being surprised at what I found. And, now the simple grace of enjoying the beauty He has provided for my table.
I hope those words stick with me for a while - I want to ponder the simple graces and practice giving thanks for those things. What simple grace are you thankful for today?

P.S. - I'm planning a big giveaway day for the day after Thanksgiving - so plan to stay home and win something fun!
Disclosure: Dayspring gave me this pitcher - in exchange for sharing my thoughts with you. The thoughts I shared and pictures are my own.
