Surprise, surprise!! What a wonderful parcel arrived in today's mail. My good friend Gloria had notified me that a package was on the way, but I never expected so many goodies. Thank you Gloria! I loved every single item, and that journal is going to be put to good use, believe you me. And how did you know I love the fragrance of freesia? Everything is so appreciated. Gifts from the heart are priceless! You really made my day!
As I've said before, it's not about the material gifts per se, it's about listening to that voice inside that urges you to give and share whether of your time or just a thoughtful gesture such as this. While we can't be giving things all the time, monetary expense being a prevalent reason, there are times when it's just about reaching out. Who knows if your act of kindness changed a person's life? God works in mysterious ways! ".....but the greatest of these is charity." I Cor 13:13
The lovely cherry tote will be perfect for transporting my knitting projects plus a good book or two. I plan to use this journal for writing down ideas on what to blog about and other interesting things. Many hugs, Gloria! ♥♥♥
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. ~Philippians 4:8~
