The Best Give You've Ever Received

If I was being honest, the best gift I've ever received is grace, from our Heavenly Father. Nothing can top redemption, salvation, and unfailing love right? So today I am going to talk to you about the 2nd best gift I've ever received. Well, talking isn't as fun as seeing, right? So here it is...


Ernesto Ebeneezer Hart was given to me as a gift on February 14th, 2011 and it is the one gift that just keeps giving. You may be thinking he was a Valentine's Day gift but nope. He was a wedding gift that Jon and I chose to give to each other. I scratched my head for ideas for my hubby-to-be and knew there wasn't a chance I was going to get him cuff links or a handkerchief...those just aren't practical for him. A couple of weeks before our wedding we decided on a French Bulldog, found a breeder near Dallas and Jon went to go pick out our puppy. Frenchies are very expensive and we thought what a great gift to seal our marriage with. Starting life as husband and wife with our first little fur baby. Mr. Chunky Man has brought so much joy to our lives, I honestly can't remember how I lived without him! There has been a handful of times where we've been at home and Ernie is gone, mostly right before or after a trip where he is still at my parents, and the house is so quiet and lonely. My little Bundle (one of his many nicknames is Mr. Bundles...Annie anyone?) will be 2 in less than a month! Where does time go?

I asked my sponsors this month what is the best gift that they've ever received too. Be sure to go say hi to these ladies (and give them lots of gifts!).

I love when you do these posts with your sponsors! So awesome. And I would agree with your #1 and #2 gifts. So sweet how much you love Ernie! But how could you not with that sweet face!

So sweet! You and I feel the exact same about our fur babies. Bailey is DEFINITELY the best gift I've ever received. Jason gave her to me on our one year (dating) anny...we drove three hours down to the breeder on our anny to pick her out when she was only 4 weeks! It was so fun! The hardest part was waiting 4 more weeks to actually get her!

We feel the exact same way girl! Dogs are the definition of unconditional love and support. We love our little Rocky so so much!

I think the best gift I've ever received is an understanding of appreciation, but I would also have to say M will eternally be the best gift I could have ever recieved! :)

The best gift I've ever received was my bible when I went back to Christ. My best friend who cherishes his bibles so much gave it to me.

I love this - it's really neat to see the varying gifts your sponsors adore. My favorite gift was in May for graduation. The one thing I wanted was the devotional, Jesus Calling! It makes each day fresh and keeps me close to God.

Heather Leigh Riley said...

Of course like you were saying Jesus is the Best gift of all!!! <3 Secondly for me is our sweet daughter my Husband and I conceived together and will be here any day now! =D Xoxo Ps.. Your dog is caaaaauuuuutttteeee!

Eeeks! Melvin is my wedding gift too. When we were driving up to Gordonville, TX, on our hunt, Scott told me that this dog would be my wedding (Christmas, Birthday, everything. Dogs aren't cheap!) gift. So of course I started crying... I hadn't even thought this far in advance about wedding gifts. It amazes me how thoughtful he is, I swear! I'd like to say little Melvin is our gift to each other too ;)

The best gift I have ever received is my push present from having my daughter. It is a beautiful diamond ring but mostly, it is a symbol of thanks from my husband for bringing our perfect daughter into this world.

Erin said...

Awww what a cute idea!! :)

I think Heather's is so cute!

Outside of Grace, my husband, and our wonderful son. My most prized material gift would be a "mother's" necklace my husband and Brody got me for mother's day. It says "I love you to the moon and back," (from the first book Brody would sit still to let me read all the way through) and has his name and birth stone. I also treasure a beautiful cross body bag my husband got me that he put Brody's hand print inside. Man, I've got a great man, huh? :)

First of all, a pink bible, super cute. Now I want one.
Second, that black dog is simply adorable. I love it.
