Blessings from bloggers

I love to send things to people. That is me. I NEVER send expecting back. Oh but I have been blessed in the past year by things from bloggers, treasures that I cherish. I have not always been good about acknowleding them, not a good thing, I will by a email or note or phone call but not always on my blog, sometimes that is because they request that I do not. Today I am playing catch up I am going to *try* to put these in the order received, but I am not expert at posting that is for sure. NOTE,somehow these are in the reverse order of how I wanted them....ooops.

This is from a very talented blog friend of mine who must remain nameless. I just love this...love it...it is a tad small for me, RIGHT now, but not forever. It is something to shrink into and I cannot wait. I love handwork but I am not as accomplished as this blogger is .I could never make something like this. What a blessing..thank you.

This Book is from my blog friend, Deborah Bolack. It was a surprise and a gift for the things she received in my last giveaway. I was so excited to get this in the mail from Manitoba. this book's, font is easy to read and each page has scripture, a devotion or poetry or both then a *New Day Resolution* something so practical, or something so profound, or both, most often. Deb, is a gifted author and blogger and can be found at *Songs from My Journey* you can also order a copy of the book from her, you will be blessed.

This*Crown of Thorns* came from Jennifer, at *Double Nickel Farm and also Pen of Jen*, it is made from the Mesquite bushes on their farm. Oh I cherish this gift as it reminds me of the sacrifice of my Saviour.I can only imagine all the cuts she received whilst making these, not to mention the cuts from the bushes themselves attacking her. Jennifer is just back from a blogging break. Go give her a visit. You will be blessed.
Isn't blogging wonderful ? I wish I could , meet all of you in person (in Heaven someday, amen) and I wish I could send to all of you. I think that is why I like giveaways. I have been humbled by things that have arrived in my mailbox.
Thank you to all who visit here and comment and those of you who do not comment.
I have been blessed

Blogging is wonderful and rewarding! I've received some great gifts as well from dear ladies, such as you Deby!

Deborah said...

I'm so glad you are enjoying the book Deby! You were so generous with your give away, and have been such a friend since we've 'met' I just wanted to do something special for you. Thanks for the encouragement!

Its all lovely :) especially the white outfit and the crown I love too.
Yes blogging is fun and its nice to find new friends.
I dont comment a whole lot because I read over 200 blogs so it takes up too much time for me to comment on every one but I try my best to comment when I can. Thankfully I use Bloglines so I can read new posts as they come in and only takes 10 minutes out of my day to read all my fav blogs.
I dont know why I just blabbed on about that LOL
hugs to you today!!!!

Very sweet blessings, Deby. You are a blessing to us all.


I am sure that these gifts mean a lot to you. Gifts given to us by those we know and admire always touch our heart by the thoughfulness of the giver. I know that you have been such a blessing to me in many areas. I thank you. I hope you have a really wonderful week and that God gives you back just a portion of the joy that you have given to others by your generous nature. connie from Texas

Dear Deby,

What sweet and beautiful gifts! It is a blessing to "meet" such loving and generous people through blogging.

Bless you, dear friend! It is a comfort to know we will meet many dear friends in Heaven that we may not be able to meet here.

I must have not really looked very hard, because I missed this post. The crown was truly a creation that brought me closer to Him...and Praise Him that I was able to make something so simple that encompasses so much.

You are loved so very much, from all over the globe...I am happy to be of those who loves you more than a sister.

Your blog header is majorly eye catching. I love it!

The Crown of Thorns is a beautiful reminder of Christ's sacrifice.
