Feeling Punchy Candy


I did a silly thing the other day...  I just HAD to have a MS doily lace punch.  I couldn't get it out of my mind!  So what did I do?  I bought one!  I was so happy and opened it up to use it... then I spied the twin.  Oh my goodness, I can't believe I already had one LOL!  Why do I need two of the same punches?  Duh!!!

I could have brought it back to the store, but the package had already been opened... so... I'm offering it to one of you, my lovely friends : )

I'd like you to celebrate with me today.  It's my birthday!!!  I am also celebrating my 3rd year of being free from breast cancer!  Glory to God!!!

To enter my Feeling Punchy Candy:
  • Please leave a comment with your favorite inspirational thought or Scripture verse!
That's it ♥  I will choose a winner on August 31.

Thanks for playing!!!

May God bless you, keep you and comfort your soul ~

    Dear Lori,

    Congrats and happy birthday - it's my birthday month too!

    It's obvious that "God knows the plans He has for your - plans to prosper you and not to harm you - plans to give you a hope and a future" (Jer 29:11).

    Mad Moose said...

    Happy Birthday and many congratulations on your sucessful fight against cancer!

    My favourite saying is this:
    Oh, the comfort! The inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person. Having neither to weigh thoughts, nor measure words, but pouring them all right out just as they are; chaff and grain together. Certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping and with a breath of kindness, blow the rest away.

    Take care and god bless x

    Happy birthday!
    I hope you have a lovely day.

    I want to tell you something you can take comfort in on your lazy days. It is my belief that no one has ever laid on their death bed and wished that they had done more housework.

    Hugs, Anne.

    Oh, Lori. You are so generous! Happy birthday to you and congrats on being 3 yr cancer free! I am already a follower and as for inspirational thought, well, I live by "everything happens for a reason". Take your much stronger has it made you, how many times has it made you look at your life, love & family differently and cherish every moment more. How much has it inspired you>? Now it's gone. It happened..............for a reason, if not to make you stronger, then to allow you to share your story of survival! Thinking of you today and always Lori! Keep smiling!

    ~*Joni said...

    Lori I just wanted to come by and celebrate your 3rd year of being cancer free!! Please don't consider me into the blog candy (I think I too may have two of those punches - heehee!). But any time someone has wonderful news to share, I feel the need to celebrate. Praise God for your wonderful health! I have so many that I love, but when my own DD was going through chemotherapy 3 years ago at the age of 2, I repeated the Serenity Prayer all the time. It reminded me of Who was in charge. ;)
    Hugs and loves!!!

    Regena said...

    Congrad on being Cancer free. I lost my grandmother to breast cancer. I had ovarian cancer 5 years ago. So far so good. Don't feel bad about the double punch thing. I love MS. I just got some things from HSN of hers. My favorite thought is
    "God does not give you more than you can handle". But at time I wish he would slow down and not so much come at one time. Have a great birthday...

    Darlene S. said...

    EEKKK!! I have been stalking this exact punch for months now! I need to find a mega sale on MS punches! :)

    Thanks for the chance!

    I'll blog about this next Friday. :)

    GreenScrap said...

    Thank God for your recovery. Is amazing and I admire your courage. My fave quote is
    "When I look at the galaxies on a clear night - when I look at the
    incredible brilliance of creation, and think that this is what God is like, then instead of feeling intimidated and diminished by it, I am enlarged . . . I rejoice that I am a part of it.
    Madeleine L. Engle
    I just thought... I don't have any punches this kind intimidate me a little because I have a tendency to be all crooked.
    Happy Birthday!!

    Rufus said...

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you! Congrats on your 3rd year cancer free. I'd love to have this punch, adore edge punches! My thought is both inspirational and funny. It's that God won't give you more than you can handle. It goes on to say, I just wish He didn't trust me so much!
    Thanks for the chance,

    bernietom47 said...

    Hey Lori! Hope your birthday was awesome, and congrats on your 3 years!! I don't really have a favourite quote or scripture verse... but I do love this funny quote "last night I dreamt I ate a 10 pound marshmellow... this morning when I woke up my pillow was gone" - never fails to put a smile on my face :)

    kimmie_35 said...

    Happy Birthday! Love your blog, Lori. Thanks for the chance to win. My quote actually comes from my Grandma, whom I was very close to as a child, and I can always remember that when we stayed with her and we would say our prayers before bed, she would say different things that stuck in my head. One of them being, to thank God for my good parents who looked after me so well, our family and friends who loved us, and to remember that people are the most important thing in life.
    As a parent myself, I find myself saying these things to my own children now. Trying to make them realise that the people we love are much more important than spending more time on the ps3...!!!!

    Happy Birthday! I wish you health and inspiration!
