This morning Bill and I went to a church holiday bazaar. I love going to bazaars this time of year! Bill purchased this doily there and came home and put it on the kitchen table as a surprise for me! I love it ~ and think it is so pretty for fall! I thought it would look pretty with my sunflowers from the garden! ♥ Oh, how I wish I could make some of these myself ~ however, at the present time I am slowly working away at an easy dishcloth pattern!! When we came home, the mail was waiting and there was a package for me ~ a friend had sent me a variety of tea bags along with a little note saying she hoped I could sit down and relax with a cup of tea! ♥ That is so perfect to go along with another gift I received in the mail recently! About a week and a half ago, I was surprised to receive the loveliest “apple” fabric coasters in the mail! Sweet and simple blessings! ♥ Now when I sit down for a cup of tea ~ I can think of these two sweet ladies and the blessing that they are! The Lord is continuing to stir and encourage my heart these days ~ about reaching out and being a blessing ~acts of kindness really mean so much!
I hope you are enjoying a day filled with simple blessings! ♥
“Now may our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God our Father, who loved us and gave us eternal comfort and good hope through grace, comfort your hearts and establish them in every good work and word.”
II Thessalonians 2:16-17 (ESV)
