Romans 12:1-2

So here's what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don't become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You'll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you. Romans 12:1-2

Great Gift for A Friend or Yourself!

Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart. 
Psalm 37:4

Hubby used that verse in his proposal over seventeen years ago, so when I saw it on Dayspring's inspired deals, I was immediately drawn to it.

DaySpring has a special Tote sale going on right now—they are Buy 2 Get 1 Free! This includes both regular price and clearance totes. You can go to this section on for a great selection and a great deal!  I was so excited that totes were the inspired deal for June - you see, some girls love shoes or purses, but I love totes!

I didn't quite know what "oil cloth" meant, but after receiving it, I figured out it means that it feels smooth - did you follow the link and see the fun detail on the handle and even inside?  There is a zippered pocket, cell phone pocket and a couple of other small ones.  The website says "With a classy look and an inspirational message, this tote bag is ideal for carrying extra items when shopping, traveling or going to work!"  I definitely thought my tote was classy and it came just in time for me to use as my carry on for vacation!

Hubby has been so patient to put up with all my totes over the years - when he cleans the closet, he knows not to even consider getting rid of any! 

I've even discovered a great use for totes - gift wrap - gift wrap that makes an extra gift!  I got this one - for Aunt's birthday

I learned "jute tote" means burlap look and feel.  Aren't the colors great?  They said "Summer!" All the messages on the Dayspring totes are great reminders of God's word and our hope in Him. You'll love these!

Disclosure: I received two totes free from Dayspring in return for my blog review. All opinions are completely mine and true.


  1. Those are cute! I'm sure that you will put them to good use :)

  2. I love the scripture your husband used is what prompted you to choose one of the bags you did; so sweet and meaningful.

    And THANK YOU for joining in this month's Inspired Deals!!
