I Heart Hydrangeas and a Refreshing Giveaway

If you are patient, there is a surprise for you at the end of this long post. ;-0

Have I mentioned lately that I LOVE hydrangeas?


This bush hasn’t bloomed in the years we’ve lived in this house.  Late cold snaps have robbed us of these blue beauties.

Don’t you love them?  They make me swoon.


Hydrangeas have nothing to do with today’s topic.  I just like them.

Proverbs 11:25 (New International Version)

  . . . He who refreshes others will himself be refreshed.

Have you ever noticed that God speaks to you in themes? 

He does that to me all the time. 

Back in April, I bought Kari Jobe’s self-titled CD, and the Lord has used the lyrics of those songs to speak volumes to me.


They’ve been my theme songs over the past few months.

In honor of my 100-something-ish post (actually for no reason at all), I’d love to refresh one of you as I have been refreshed with this CD.

Here’s how to enter:

1. Click to follow and leave a comment to say HI!

2. Link this giveaway on your blog and leave a comment telling me you’ve got it there.

This giveaway will close Friday!

Be blessed today!



  1. Ginger - don't enter me in the contest because I won your last one AND because I already have the CD :). Just wanted to say I love your flowers!! And your teachable spirit! Your heart is always so open to hearing what God says!

  2. Ginger, don't enter me either, as I have this CD. But I so wish that we could grow the hydrangeas here in our area. They are gorgeous!

  3. Love me some Kari....she's always on my IPOD when I go walking! I'd love to win!

  4. Beautiful hydrangeas!!! My mom's bushes are spectacular this year. Must be all the rain we have gotten the past year. Thanks for sharing.


  5. Great post - I just posted on hydrangeas Monday. Would love the cd. He speaks to me in repetition - because I don't "get it" the first time.

  6. What a great CD. I LOVE Revelation Song. Please enter me, as I would love to win!! Thanks for the chance.

    I love hydrangeas as well. They are so beautiful.

  7. I have three hydrangeas I planted last year and they are all blooming! Mostly blue but some a bit on the purple side.
    Sadly, my pansy bed is now dead. I hoed them down and have some yellow daisy-like plants to replace the pansy. They will be planted around my one lonely lavender plant. Lemon yellow daisies and lavender...should be pretty!
    Enter me in your giveaway, please! She is awesome...and so are you! Congratulations on your 100th post.

  8. Beautiful pics! Thanks for the visit today. I just LOVE your header. :)

  9. Count me in! I'd LOVE to get a new CD! :)
    I adore hydrangeas! My mom had a bunch of them growing in my childhood home, and I have a wonderful pink one growing in our itsy-bitsy back yard, the one survivor of the neglect of a rental home!

  10. I love your hydrangeas! I heard years ago that if you want to change their color, you can drive long nails into the ground beside them. Something about the lead content of the soil.Is this true?
    I linked up for Kari's CD. My hubby's 1st cousins actually attend her church. Very cool. Would love the CD!

  11. Hi Ginger: Great to hear from you and congrats on 100 posts! What a wonderful give-a-way to celebrate! We don't have that CD yet, but someone sent me a You Tube link to one of her songs--it was awesome! We're hoping for some blooms this year too!

  12. Love your pictures....and gorgeous flowers....am following now....Have lots of friends that go to the same church with Kari and she has been here several times...Love her...
