"Let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works."
I spent the whole day yesterday, shopping with my 3 daughters and granddaughter. We do this each year and pick out what we want from each other, this makes it easy on us, we know what the other one wants and by Christmas most times we forget what it was and it's still a wonderful surprise. It's such a JOY to give and it's nice to receive too!
The first of the week I received a gift from Stephanie, over at "The Enchanting Rose" blog. She loves to make things, and is very good at it.
She made me this ornament to go on my tree.
And this teabag holder. I love it! It's the right size to carry a couple bags of tea in my purse.
Isn't it really pretty and I love pink!
Thank you, Stephanie.
While I was shopping yesterday, my husband called me and said, "You got a box in the mail". I was so excited to get home and open it, I was like a child again at Christmas. Twice in the same week I received gifts from two sweet ladies. This one was from Michele, over at "The Nest at Finch Rest" blog. Michele and I met through a Ladies Tea Group website, several years ago.
She had wrapped each item separate, I was so blessed with her love and kindness to me.
Isn't this a lovely set of napkins, I'll have a Tea with my two granddaughters while they are out for Christmas break. They will enjoy the Santa teapot filled with the Holiday Tea.
I sat and read the book this morning as I had my Tea.
I loved it but it did make tears fill my eyes. It tells of a girl growing up and visiting her great aunt at Christmas and how she took it all for granted and then realized the importance of family and the love of spending time together.
After her Great Aunt had passed away, she realized the lessons she was teaching her and the prayer for her to find faith and truth!
While God has blessed us with this season of His Son's birth, my prayer is that we use it to reach out to others and share His Love, as these two dear ladies has shared theirs with me.
Thanks Stephanie and Michele, for the gift of your friendship!
Have a Blessed Sunday!
