When we sow bountifully and bless others
we will also reap bountifully
in this life of friendships.
Every good and perfect gift is from above,
may we rejoice in the goodness
of the greatest Gift-Giver of all
and in the gifts of friendship
we have been given.
For the first time, I participated in Stephanie's annual
Tea Cup and Mug Exchange this year.
It was a great deal of fun, and I was
blessed with a new friendship with a sister in Christ.
Stephanie pairs the participants up, and we each send some
goodies to one person, and receive some goodies from
a different person. In the process, you make two
new friends and have the opportunity
of blessing someone with a package full of love.
I had the joy and pleasure of sending some lovely
gifts along with a tea cup to Abigail.
For me, it was really special to watch God work
everything out with this exchange.
Before I received the name of who I was sending to,
I was out shopping, and I stumbled across
an Israeli cookbook. I took it just in case
the girl I was going to send to liked to cook.
When I looked at my email later, I was pleasantly surprised to
find out that Abigail loves everything I do, including
dark chocolate, and she even mentioned that Israel
has a special place in her heart.
I'm thrilled God brought
us together using Stephanie and this lovely exchange.
Here's what I packaged for Abigail.
Salinn blessed me with these lovely things,
and I have already enjoyed the pink lemonade. (I'm saving the hot cocoa
for those cold winter days. :) Thank you Salinn!
I want to give Stephanie a huge thank you for
hosting this exchange. I had the most enjoyable time, and I
look forward to doing it again in March or April.

works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven."
Until next time, remained blessed.
