That is so generous of you, giving away your last bottle of honey!

I found your blog while on a blog hop, checking out other bloggers that have hymns as music they enjoy.

I would love to have a chance to win this, it has been years since I last had fresh honey.

Hi Savannah!

I was so excited to see that you had posted your surprise...and what a fun surprise it is! I'm sure your natural honey is very delicious.

Well, I found your blog after you told me that you had started blogging and gave me the address :) I'm so glad you all have a blog, because it's wonderful to be able to stay up to date with you all. I wish we could see you more often, but since we live don't it very nice to see all the photos; you do a great job posting!

And of course I think you know who I am. Here's something you might not know: I just recently started a new blog, so I can post family videos or music videos every once in a while. The address is Feel free to stop by if you get a chance and I hope you enjoy!

Thank you so much for leaving a comment on my blog for the newsletter! I really apprecaited what you shared, and I'm sure it will be a blessing to others, as well.

Many Blessings,

Hello Savannah,

I am Billy Gilmore's mom. I found out about your blog from Billy. He was just talking about getting some honey from the Cochran's and I hopped over to your blog and read that you are giving away honey. Isn't that Sweet??? PUN intended.

Fun! If I looked confused earlier when you told me "giveaway" it was because I thought you were about to give me just a hint about it, not tell me what it was! So, sorry for the momentary deer-in-headlights look I gave you! :P
A little about myself... I have the honor of being married to the most WONDERFUL man in the WORLD! He loves me boundlessly, I admire him more than words can express, and we have a gracious Savior who has bound us together in His love!
We found your blog.... hmmm, I don't really remember. Maybe I googled ya'll (although I just tried that and it didn't work)... perhaps through a comment on the Morris' blog... I really can't remember! :(
We have surely enjoyed your honey in the past! And I'm SO thankful for the bees wax!
Praying that your newfound "allergy" gets better soon! :D

Yay, a surprise! I was really looking forward to seeing what the surprise was, and I really like it! Thanks for hosting this give-away.

Emily said...

Well. I'm Emily and... - just kidding ;) Y'all know me! And I'm pretty sure we got your blog address from you :)

I am SO excited about this! Y'all are so sweet to give away your last honey bear. We recently tried honey from the store, and then fresh, local honey to compare. *Whew!* what a difference!! I now understand what you were telling me. I would love to get some of yours.

Thanks for a chance!

Mrs. Gilmore's comment was the first thing I thought of when I saw this post, "Awww, that's Sweet..." :)

I'm part of the Family Thomas, a Bible believing, musically & History inspired, health-nut, at times crazy, family, who very much enjoys the fellowship of people & families like you all!
& I'm not sure how I "found" your blog... under the "bookmarked favorites"? :p

God bless you guys & see you Saturday!

Jeri Beth said...

Hi Savannah!
I was pleasantly "surprised" to see your giveaway last week! You are so sweet to give your prized honey away!

And, you already know me, :) so I don't think I have to fill that part, & I believe you're the one who told me about your blog.

Oh, and here is the news...we're having a BOY!!! We're so excited! I actually had been sort of hoping it would be a boy, but of course, either would have been fine. :) Please tell your Mom thanks for the email she sent for my mom the other week. We are so grateful for the Lord's goodness in keeping Mama and little man both healthy & well!

Blessings, dear! ~Jeri Beth

Brittney said...

And I emailed your giveaway out. :)

Hey Savannah!

This is Catherine N. :)

Our family really enjoys honey. We are getting bees next month. My dad and brothers took a six week beekeeping class recently. They learned so much.

I think my Mother showed me your blog about a year ago. We have really been blessed by it.

I really enjoyed talking to you last Sunday. Our goat that kidded that afternoon had twin doelings! I hope to see you and your family at church on Sunday!

God Bless!

This is the "S." family, and we live in Arkansas. :-)

We really enjoy your blog, and have it saved among our favorites.

We found your blog a long time ago, and in fact we really cannot remember "finding" it. [I think we were simply told of the address by a certain notable member of your family! :-)]

Revelation 22:21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.
