Midweek Morsel: Giveaway Winner Plus More Splurging

59306504_5d561cd58c_zJust in time for Mother’s Day weekend, we have a winner for the Splurge a Little Giveaway! That lucky winner is Juanita! Congrats, Juanita! I’ll get the gift card to you as soon as possible. Have fun splurging on a little something at Pier 1!

For the rest of us, let’s take joy in the fact that God himself has splurged on us big-time. He sent his son Jesus into the world to save us from our sins and give us eternal life. And that love was so great that “While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8) Yes, the biggest splurge of all time!

Since God has so freely splurged on us, why don’t we share that love with some splurges of our own? Maybe we can give an unexpected gift or pay a surprise visit. Maybe we can offer a helping hand. Or maybe it’s time to give forgiveness or extend the hand of friendship. Whatever it is, let’s splurge a little—no, make that a lot!

“. . . love one another deeply, from the heart.” 1 Peter 1:22b

  1. Cheryl – It’s the little things in life that are truly God’s splurges – a kind word, a warming smile, a rainbow in the sky, the beauty of nature. I could go on and on, but for me a simple life is the greatest “splurge” of all. Best wishes!

  2. Juanita says

    Cheryl, thank you so much for the gift card to Pier 1. I will certainly enjoy picking something just for me. God has blessed me so much, and I must say I love seeing pictures of your grandsons. They are so precious!

    • You’re more than welcome, Juanita. So nice to feel treated every now and then, isn’t it? So glad you’re enjoying seeing pics of my sweet little grandsons. We are so blessed!
