Life to the Fullest

Who knew you could love so much about a plate? Well, you're getting ready to find out 10 reasons why I love this 16" Oval Platter from Dayspring


1. It's encouraging
   In the center of the platter, it has the verse "I have come that they might have Life, and have it to the full. JOHN 10:10 NIV".  I have mine sitting out on my counter and it's a constant reminder that God wants my life to matter.  He died so my life could be full!

2. It's a great conversation starter
   The next time you have to take an appetizer or dish to a get together, what a great way to encourage all the guests.  They'll pick up your bacon wrapped jalepeno thingies and slowly unveil this amazing verse.

3. It matches my kitchen
   My kitchen opens up to my living room which is blue.  It matches beautifully!

4. It's educational
   A plate?  Really?!  Yep...it features the word life in 15 languages!  Some of those languages are Afrikaans, Italian, Croatian, Polish, and French.

5. It's dishwasher safe
   Frankly, that's the only way to go.  If I can't put it in the dishwasher, then I don't need it!

6. It comes in another color
   It also comes in red if that's more your taste.

7. It has matching pieces
   It comes from the Life to the Fullest collection.  There are lots of other pieces that coordinate with it.

8. It's on SALE!!!
   I mean, that should seal the deal right there!!  It's regularly priced at $26.99, but during the month of March the whole "Life to the Fullest" collection is 30% off when you use the code LIFE30.  That makes the platter only $18.89!  What a great gift for someone...or for yourself!

9. It's a piece of art
   If you didn't want to use it as a serving piece, it would look great hanging on a wall or propped up in book holder.

*****************GIVEAWAY******************

10. IT COULD BE FREE!
   Dayspring has provided me with a $20 coupon code to offer to one of you!  Leave me a comment about what living life to the fullest means to you.  That's it!  Of course, you could spend it on whatever you like :) I will draw the "lucky" winner on St. Patrick's Day!

How fun! Living life to the fullest to me means slowing down (oh, how I'm trying!), embracing the moment, and focusing on my many blessings.

Living life to the fullest to me is following God's small voice. He has life abundantly awaiting me and I always live life to the fullest when I follow Him!

Living life to the fullest? Well, going along with that verse, it reminds me to live w/o fear and by following God's Word.

Living life to the fullest is about just going for it!

living life to the fullest means loving God first, then family and friends...and everything else (work school money shopping) is below those three

Living life to the fullest is less of me to be filled with more of Him. Love that plate!!!

Living life to the fullest for me means enjoying my family, putting first things first.

Being 63 but feeling 58 I can tell you to all stop and smell the roses. God provided them just for you so you can enjoy life to it's fullest. Don't forget to entertain strangers because you never know if it's God's Angels. Love one another unconditionally because I've been in that place too.

Making sure I live with purpose, wherever I am, whomever I'm with. No regrets.

Kristin said...

Living life to the fullest means striving to be more like Christ and enjoying every day I am given with my amazing husband, family, and friends.

Jen said...

Living life to the fullest, wow, a great question. :) Living life without hesitation & regret. Being the best wife, mother, friend, sister, daughter, niece, sis in law & teacher that I can be and always looking for ways to improve daily.

Live life to the fullest? I like to watch the sunset over the trees - it makes everything slow down!

Kristy said...

Living life to the fullest is enjoying what the Lord has blessed you with and living every moment enjoying the good in your life even when things might not look so perfect. It is having a vision and following God's lead.

Kristen said...

Living life to the fullest means being joyful and rejoicing in God's grace...each and every day that He grants!

Living life to the fullest means enjoying every moment instead of saying "maybe tomorrow"! Thanks for the great giveaway, I love their plating.

eclairre said...

To me, it means living in the moment and appreciating the little things in life. Forget about the past and future, right now is NOW. lol

Mary B said...

Enjoying each moment. Rather than looking to the future or thinking about what I need to do or be.

Nicole said...

I try to live life on purpose. intentionally. simply.
without distractions that take my eye off the prize. so I have the time to soak up life's purpose to the fullest: more of Him and less of me.

love that platter!

Denise said...

I try to live with an eternal focus. If it won't matter in eternity, it shouldn't matter right now!
