By Grace Alone — Review and Giveaway

By the grace of God, I am what I am. 1 Corinthians 15:10

This beautiful verse is printed on the back of the necklace in the By Grace Alone Jewelry Set sent to me by DaySpring and (in)courage.

Isn’t the whole set beautiful? It includes the necklace, a cuff bracelet, and drop earrings. You can buy the set at DaySpring here, and it’s currently on sale. Or if you prefer, it’s also sold by individual piece. While you’re there, check out their other great products (hint: think Easter gifts!)

I love the theme of the jewelry: “By Grace Alone.” As you know, I write about grace a lot on this blog. It’s so meaningful for me to have this jewelry—especially during this Easter season—to remind me of God’s grace. It’s by grace alone that we live each day and we can be in a daily relationship with Jesus. Sometimes I need to be reminded that it’s not about me. I am held by God solely because of his grace.

I wore the necklace this weekend and received so many compliments. And I have great news for you . . . my ears aren’t pierced. I know, it’s crazy. But there was an episode when I was 10 years old that involved doctors and infection. Anyway, why is this great news for you? Because I’m hosting my first giveaway here on Anointed With Grace! I’m giving away the earrings from this jewelry set to one person who comments on this post.

    My fondest memory of Easter…
    When I was a child I attended a small (very small) Presbyterian Church with my Grandmother. She played a monumental role in my faith life! Every year for Easter services they placed a huge rugged cross in front and center of the sanctuary. It was covered in nail holes. Holes the perfect size for placing stems of flowers. We all adorned it with beautiful spring flowers in memory of loved ones we had lost. By the end of the service it was always so full of beautiful life that you couldn’t even see the unsightly wood underneath. As a child, I didn’t realize how symbolic it was or how important it would become to me after she was gone. To this day, there is just something so peaceful about it. Knowing that Christ gave his life on the cross so that she could live. That on that cross he transformed her into something beautiful for all of eternity.

    My favorite Easter memories are the ones involving my husband and kids. Going to church and hearing the resurrection story again reinforces that fact that GOD is an awesome GOD. The torture that Jesus went through for me to have eternal life. WOW!

    The other memories that are special to me, are the Easter Egg hunts for the kids. We would have four different locations and levels of difficulty corresponding to their age. They had so much fun that each year they would ask “are we going to have an Easter Egg hunt this year”.

    My favorite Easter memory is easter egg hunts at my great aunts house! The eggs always had money in them. It was a great memory of family!

    My favorite Easter memory was Easter of 1995. I was 16 years old and it was the last Easter with my Mom. She was fully aware that it would be her last Easter because of her cancer. I on the other hand was still in complete denial. She made me a huge Easter basket with so many things in it (even an outfit!) However, it was the memory of her that I will never forget. I still have some of the things that she put in there around my house. Whenever I see these items, it still brings a smile to my face.

  6. Amazing grace, how sweet the sound! If not for GOD’s grace, where would I be??? To be honest, I don’t really put too much into holidays. Don’t get me wrong, they are a ton of fun and it’s nice to get together with loved ones and celebrate the special occasions we hold so dear to our heart. But I am reminded of what JESUS did for me everyday. When I think about where I could have been this very day, the thought of GOD’s grace penetrates my heart deeply! So for me and my family, everyday is CHRISTmas and everyday is EASTER. We are so thankful. This Easter we will do what we do daily; thank GOD for HIS grace, mercy and everlasting love! We will seek HIM as always and hope to experience HIM more than the day before….

    My favorite Easter memories are my most recent memories. I have two grand daughters. My husband and the girl’s dad hide the eggs. Some of them end up on tree branches and in drain pipes. Some are a little easier to find. We end up playing the colder, colder, warmer, warmer, hot game to find the last few. And once is never enough. We have to hide them all over again and again. Their mom and I stand on the upper deck and cheer in delight. And a few weeks later, we find one forgotten never found egg that reminds us of an afternoon of squeals, giggles and family fun. Thanks to grandpa and dad.

    My favorite Easter memory is going to church and then to my grandparents for a late lunch. We had this great Easter egg hunt in their yard. Oh, and I always remember wearing a hat to church on Easter….because my mom thought it was cute, not because anyone else ever did it.

    But, by far, my favorite thing was when my old pastor used to get up front his face aglow, like he waited all year to say this one thing, “He is risen!” To which the congregation would respond, “He is risen, indeed!” 🙂

    I know that Easter is not all about baskets, bunnies, and the eggs, but my daughter turns 2 this year and I hope to start making easter memories with her with not only going to church but also going to an egg hunt and putting together a basket for her.
