We're in Funky Country

Check out my new plaque! Beautiful, isn't it? It's all hand painted. And, the picture doesn't do it justice. It is GORGEOUS.

I'd say I won it, but actually, I was BLESSED with it.

I check the blog and Etsy site of Renee's FUNKY Country, and found Renee doing a give away. I posted a comment on her site in order to enter. 

Or, so I thought.

Imagine my thrill, when I checked her blog a few days later to read, "Annie, you're the winner!" Yippee, me! (Insert mental image of a Greyhaired Momma jump, a rebel yell, and some very immature dance moves here.) Yippee! Me!!

I promptly emailed Renee with the requests for my plaque: family name, and the scripture verse I so love: Joshua 24:15: "As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord."

Before hearing back from Renee, I went back to Renee's blog. (Of course I wasn't there to see my name in print again or anything like that. NOPE! Not me!!) While at the blog, I see Renee has posted, "Whoops!! We have two Annies! So, there are two winners."

Hmmm... I read on... Back to the original post about the give away. "Post a comment on my FACEBOOK page to be entered."

OY! I didn't post on Renee's FB page, I posted on her blog. OOPS! I'm sure I've never misread anything in my life. Nope! Not me!

I emailed Renee and told her of my error. I told her I realized that I wasn't THE Annie who won, but another woman with a MOST WONDERFUL name must have been the winner! I thanked Renee and told her I would enter next time.

Her response?

"Annie, I prayed about it. Today, TWO Annies will be blessed!"

I was humbled and VERY thrilled!

Renee -- thank you, thank you, thank you! The plaque is absolutely gorgeous. And, it represents God's blessing in my life. You, a sister in Christ, yet a stranger, decided to bless me, and what a blessing it is.

As I see it, it's now my turn to pay it forward and bless someone else. I look forward to the opportunity!
