Yippie For Care Packages!

I received a package yesterday from a wonderful friend who means so much to me, Valerie.

She sent me a wonderful book called The Prayer of Jesus For You. It's 30 days, 30 ways closer to God.



I had asked her about a week or two ago for her ideas on a good study bible. And she was so kind to give me several suggestions and surprised me with this wonderful package. I am so glad to have a book like this!

Valerie is Brian's mother and Brian is our best friend back in Oklahoma. We miss him dearly. But I am so thankful we have been able to keep in touch with both of them. We love them both so much.

She also sent me a plaque. It reads.... "Many People Will Walk In and Out of Your Life But Only True Friends Will Leave Footprints in Your Heart."

I found the perfect spot for it on my entry way side table! I absolutely love it!


Thanks so much Val, you don't know how much this meant to me. It made my entire day! Well, actually my entire week. You are truly a wonderful friend!

Not only did I receive that package from Valerie, but my mom sent me a package for Valentines Day as well. She sent me a bunch of coffee from my step dad's business.



She sent some much needed face wash and face lotion and some more hair product for the hubs. She also sent this cute little milk and sugar set that is perfect for our kitchen and adds some much needed color!
Isn't it adorable?!

THANKS SO MUCH MOM!!!! I love all of the care packages you send. It means so much to Jon and I to receive something from you and a little something from the States!
We love you.

Jon and I are so blessed to have such wonderful friends and family!
AND BOY DO WE LOVE CARE PACKAGES!!!

How truly blessed you are. I love that colorful little creamer and sugar, and what we do without Jesus and coffee? I sure hope I win that pretty knitted scarf. Have a great day.

Aww,that's so nice. I just love getting stuff in the mail too, even though I'm still in the states.

In case you're still looking the best study Bible I've owned is the Dake Annotated Reference Bible. It's four column, so it's got the scripture in the center 2 columns and references for studying on the outermost columns. I love it and it works great for me because I can easily look to the margins for related scripture, explanantions of terminology, or insight from the author.
Also, Max Lucado has another great study bible that I've liked alot too.
