red letter words giveaway

So I was on etsy. Because sometimes I just can't stay away.
I was looking for something to put on the table with my books at an upcoming conference.
So that it doesn't just look like a table with a pile of books.
Have I mentioned that the thought of standing next to a table with my books
makes me start to sweat? I didn't? Well, that is another post entirely.
But while I was on etsy, I found Red LetterWords. And I was smitten.
Now I know that really you should just be smitten with people.
But I tend to get excited by decor.
First I saw this one.

and then I saw this one.

They reminded me of the part in Deuteronomy where it says to write God's commands on your door frames and your gates.
Incorporating scripture into our daily lives.
She has word pictures of Hannah's prayer and the sermon on the mount.
So of course I had to contact Dee, and tell her how I loved her work.
She was gracious enough to make a sign for my lonely books.

And was even more gracious in saying that she would do a giveaway here on the blog.
For all you tired supergirls out there.
So go over to Red LetterWords and then come back here and tell me your favorite sign in comments. Comments will be open until Thursday at 9:00 pm.
The winner announced on Friday gets to pick a picture of their choosing.
I'm especially partial to this one.

I may have to print it up and leave a picture of it on Scott's desk...
Valentine's day is coming soon. It never hurts to leave a hint.

Ooh! I love Paris City Sites in Black! My hubby proposed in Paris so it has a special place in my heart...what beautiful stuff!

Meg said...

I like "She knew she was created in His image." We tsgs should keep it by our mirrors.

jenny said...

I really like the "they knew... cords" and "she knew she was created in His image".

Your sign looks great.

Bets said...

Oh my goodness - I've never seen these before, but I absolutely love them! I LOVE the Hannah's prayer one - I'd love to hang that in the middle of the portraits of my 4 girlies! Also love the "today is the day" one and the "house is built" one. Emailing link to hubby!

Jodie said...

I love words so much! Your sign looks great! You must be proud as punch to have that on your book table!

I looked around and I think my favorite is 'His eye is on the sparrow...' although really, it was hard to choose a favorite, b/c I liked them all. :)

Raising Cajun Christians said...

She Knew that if she spoke the Truth, then the Facts would Change

That's my favorite. Our pastor is always saying "Speak it as if it already is rather than as it is not."

Nina said...

I tend to have a little problem with complaining so I LOVED "Today is the day You have made. I will Rejoice and be glad in it."

I have so much to be thankful for...which is why I was also drawn to: "Be thankful and say so to Him"

And, if she just happens to make one of those city ones for Washington DC, I will probably have to get it. :) (Can they be made even bigger or no?)

Great find!

Lois Lane II said...

I think it's funny that my favorites are the first one (she is worth more than rubies) and the last one (three strans). BUT I do love the two are better than one, too. =) So beautiful.

Paula said...

She Knew that if she spoke the Truth, then the Facts would Change. This is my favorite because of the healing that God has begun in my life.

Little Do said...

I love the "house is built" one. I can't wait to see your personalized sign...how fun is that!

olivia fee said...

HI I love your blog. My friend Erin Zonio told me about it. I have 4 little boys so I feel alot of the same things! I love the 2 sign set that says "Don't doubt in the dark ... what God has shown you in the light." It speks to my heart! Good luck with your book.

Brandie said...

Well of course I like the "Two are better than one".... But I also like "Love never fails".

Leslie said...

My favorite is "Two are better than One." But it was hard to choose; there are many great ones!

Oh, goodness - how can you just pick one of those things!! I fell in love with 2 or 3. This one stuck out the best though - http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=15867301
"Be Thankful and Say So to Him" - I work on this daily - so to have it in front of me would definitely be a great reminder!! =0) Thanks for sharing Sue!!

Erica said...

I would gladly take ANY of them! I do have a weakness for words used as graphics. The one that catches me, though is "His Eye is on the Sparrow" and I like the little birdie too!

DMSully said...

I love "Be thankful and say so to Him" A great reminder to be thankful for ALL things and to let HIM know.
"Love your book! 'Can't wait to pass it on to all my TSG friends"

deezmath said...

My favorite is the first one you pictured: Wait Hope Expect

These words, in the light of trusting God, all mean the same thing to me. Those who WAIT or HOPE in the Lord will never be put to shame. Wait for the Lord, be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord...says to me "EXPECT" in the Lord and He will show up! PTL. Thanks for these, Sue...they brought me encouragement in the midst of my loooooong journey to wherever God's taking me.

Pamela said...

Love the style! I like all of them! My favorite were the "love" spoken here or never fails, and the one based on Hannah's prayer made on brown with cream lettering. So amazing! Thanks to passing on the fabulous find. :)

Auntie Jan said...

What a great find. I like "Don't doubt in the dark what God has shown you in the light", good concept for us tired supergirls to remember when we are not feeling so super.

Josh said...

I like the "Two are Better than one".

:)

Jenny said...

They are all so fantastic! How is it possible to choose just one? I love Hannah's prayer is my favorite :)

Beth K said...

I love Hannah's prayer or the "two are better than one" pictures. What beautiful art!

Kara said...

So cool! I am quite partial to the "Thankful" one and the one "I prayed for this child". I love art that has just words on it - especially in this simple and elegant fashion. I am so considering a little shopping trip on this site.......that is, IF I DON'T WIN ONE!

FINGERS CROSSING!!! :-)

Carrie said...

Wow- What a hard choice!!! I love three of them- love never fails, Today is the Day YOU have made, and I Prayed for this Child. Also, Don't Doubt in the Dark is awesome. I don't know which one I would choose, truly.

everydaygrace said...

"Fearfully and wonderfully made" of course! This has been a favorite scripture of mine forever. I love these signs...what a great idea!!

ljksar said...

I love the "Love spoken here" sign. These are awesome.

EMB* said...

Oooohhhh, I love it! We saw His Star in the East . . . what a great creative way to share God's word! Elaine*

TRACI said...

San Francisco City. I love those pictures Sister Sue. See you soon!

Kristin said...

I love them all! What a great idea to decorate your house with the words of the Lord. How could you pick just one? (One per room maybe.... :) I love His eye is on the sparrow, two are better than one and hannahs prayer. Just beautiful!

godsgirljewels said...

I love Dee's work and I love and already have the Hannah's prayer one since it reminds me of my son Jesse and what a blessing he was to our family.

Erin McGraw said...

I am addicted to etsy as well. I wish I had that type of talent, at least I can support their talent. I love the "Love never Fails" because I know for sure that his love never does. Thanks for the link and your gift of writing.

fransmomma said...

oh...my...goodness!!! they're all amazing! its hard to pick just one, but i think my favorite is "LOVE spoken here." i try to keep that in mind all the time, to speak with gentleness and blessings, not curses. i know exactly where i would put it so i could see it all day everyday!

Kim said...

They are all neat! I like "His eye is on the sparrow".

Sherry in MI said...

I like the "I love you - No, I love you more" sign since we say that at our house!

Rebecca said...

Two are better than one in black and red would be my favorite!

Marty said...

Hard to pick a favorite among so many! I do like the "Today is the day that you have made" one as I'm learning to be present and thankful in the moment! "Two are better than one" is wonderful too!

MoziEsmé said...

Those are such sweet messages!

Kim said...

Wait. Hope. Expect.

LOVE IT!

Courtney said...

I love these! And I can just picture the verse from Psalm 139 in my daughter's room. :)

gracegirl said...

I love these, my favorite is the two combo, Trust in the dark...

Girly Muse said...

so many great ones! yours is AWESOME! how exciting.

i think my favorites are "Wait Hope Expect" and "Love Spoken Here"...

Rachel said...

Wow! How do you choose just one?!
"Today is the day the Lord has made, and I will rejoice and be glad in it" is the scripture that Cicely Tyson quoted when asked what she thought of Barak Obama's inauguration, so I think I am partial to that one.

mowallace said...

When I tell Grace "I love you" she responds, "I love you more" and I alway respond back impossible! When I saw the I love you more ssign I nearly cried! I LOVE IT MORE!!!

*~*Pilgrim*~* said...

I LOVE this artwork...she is incredible. "Wait Hope Expect" is my favorite I think because it is THE THEME of my life right now... (of course, they are ALL my favorite, actually... If I could I would by all of them!!)
