Winter Holiday merriment with Mrs. Grossman's totally awesome stickers.

Were you a sticker fan as a kid? I was in college, and still am. I loved those rolls of stickers that stationery stores sold. You could cut off one little square of this and that and go home with an assortment of cute little animals or shapes and flowers. I just don't see any stationery store offering rolls of stickers any more-but you can order from Mrs. Grossman's-yep that's my favorite brand. It's the season for stickers! 

Decorate with stickers:
  • Greeting cards
  • Bills, the mailman needs some cheer too
  • Packages
  • Lunch bags
  • Notes
  • Letters
  • Gifts
  • Envelopes
  • Gift cards-seal the envelope with a sticker.

So, for Christmas and Winter here is my stash:
Made in USA.

I ordered the ornament stickers on a roll, but they came in sheets!

Sticker fun, that's all.

Free ebook UNSHAKEABLE and a giveaway of the book: BLESSINGS OF UNITY, God's Best for our marriages, by Richard T. Case

Being married is awesome, right? I think so. We grow spiritually and emotionally together. And then the kids come along. I remember when our first daughter was born my husband and I both thought we were right about everything and anything baby. And then, we were at odds. Tired, sleepless, and without unity. But...
We are both right. It shows we both have the child's best interest at heart. It's love
that makes us think we are each right in our own way.
How do we find that unity again? It's in the Bible.

Marriage also has the gimmes-stuff-material goods. I want. He wants. The kids want. So we buy stuff. Are we happier? Maybe? I feel like too much stuff in the house just adds to the emotion of a family running about the house. I'm not saying don't buy stuff, actually I feel toys and books are essential for children's development. Just don't buy junky stuff-been there.

The Blessings of Unity: God's Best for our Marriages, by Richard T. Case discusses keys to unity, how to handle disagreements, praying through unity, and Biblical examples of Unity.

My thought on unity is this; it has to be there-unity.

If my husband and I are not on the same page, well, then there are disagreements, silence, anger, and hurt feelings.
Unity doesn't happen over night, it's an evolution of maturity. And once you and your spouse find that unity in your relationship, wahoo. It's like your best ever friend in the whole wide world.

About the book:
The Blessing of Unity offers insight and ideas for creating godly unity in our marriages centered around two key concepts:
1) Abiding in the Vine and walking in the Spirit, and
2) Learning and applying the concept of unity.
Unity is achieved when a man and woman strive for agreement with God by processing His Will on every decision and in every issue. Through Biblical-centered discussions of discord, division, unity, discipleship, and prayer, and through exploring Biblical examples of unity, Richard Case offers husbands and wives practical and spiritual advice for working together in unity in the Spirit so that they can more perfectly present themselves to God for his divine approval.
