Presents from afar...

A little something arrived in the mail on Saturday...

A parcel from England bearing Yuletide greetings.

The first of the gifts that will go around our tree. Can't wait to see what's inside!


However many blessings we expect from God, His infinite liberality will always exceed all our wishes and our thoughts. ~John Calvin

Rejoice always; pray without ceasing; in everything give thanks; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.
~I Thessalonians 5:16-18

    It is so much fun to receive presents from far away :)

    Enjoy them,


  4. Brings back memories of getting Christmas gifts from afar [Northern Ireland and France]. Glad you received it on time.

  5. What fun! When I was little, we always received a package each December from South Africa. My mother, who was born and raised in Germany, had an older sister who married and then moved there with her husband. It was always such a treat, receiving those packages! I shall have to sit and remember my Aunt Renate from Africa now :-) Thanks for bringing that memory to mind!


  6. I love getting packages and this time of year is the best. But ones from overseas would be even better.
    Merry Christmas

  7. Wonderful!

    Today I am thankful for the love of my friends and family... I'm always thankful for it but today it's hitting me even harder.

    Blessings, Debbie
