Saturday Soiree Blog Party #1 + Giveaway

Welcome to the first ever Saturday Soiree Blog Party!!! I am a bundle of emotions today as I launch this vision; grateful, humble, nervous, excited and more than a little anxious!  But, I trust a GREAT GOD who gave me this vision while I was still in the darkness and grieving my Joy’s Autism diagnosis.  I am beyond grateful for the healing and restoration He gave so I could pay it forward and help others.

This week I shared Striving for Fulfillment on the Hamster Wheel of Life and reminded us all how God is calling us to stop striving and to lay our desires at His feet.  He is the only true source of joy, fulfillment, and peace.  May we strive less and follow Him more!

I had my first guest blogger, Sarah, from Strain Me, and was inspired by her practical reminders of how to live in peace on The Road to Peace. I’m pretty sure I need to look at these helpful reminders often!


So let’s get this party started!!!!! Every good soiree needs party gift, so enjoy this week’s free printable!  If you click the “print friendly”, it will give you an option to delete all of the text to just print the picture. graceisenoughprintable

I have placed a link on my blog, but I can’t spread the word on social media – I have no FB or Twitter account 🙁

  5. I haven’t linked anything, as my blog may be mostly unrelated- but I just wanted to stop by and say hi from the SITSSaturday, as well as with you luck on your journey!
    My stepson has autism and it’s one hell of a bumpy road sometimes so, if you ever need to vent or want some advice, feel free to drop by or send me an email <3
    I know we don't know one another but the gap's been bridged by way of diagnoses, and I feel for you.
    Before you try, and are frustrated, by many medications- check out True Hope 🙂

    Have an excellent weekend!!

    Alysia, from the Dish

    1. Alysia,
      Thanks for coming by with the encouragement! Being an Autism parent is not for the faint of heart and it is filled with so many ups and downs. It’s hard to watch when the tantrums start again or there is regression. I completely agree that us Autism parents need to stick together and share what has worked and what hasn’t. I feel that parents are my biggest support group! I will check out your blog and follow you to stay in touch. Many blessings!!!

  6. Thank you for starting this blog link up….. looking forward to checking it out each week and am becoming a follower of your blog. Thank you. 🙂
