Mail Call! (And a few more things:)

At the beginning of this day, I had a sort of bad day. A whole bunch of little things piled up to be a great big huge mound, but my nerves calmed down when mom walked through the front door carrying the mail, and that's when God showered a few blessings on me:). She handed me two letters that cheered me up and brightened my day. One was a first letter from my newly gained pen-pal, Kendra over at "Ishmikendra," and my beloved, former violin teacher.
Thank you so much, dearest Shawna for the sweet letter, and for this...

I absolutely LOVE it!!!

However, what makes it even more special is this: it came from you, and therefore I shall cherish it always and forever. Will write back soon to you both...

Amanda from Farmgirl Writes is hosting a blog party full of neat giveaways and fun tags!

She asked this: What are your three of your fondest memories of summer?

Well, let's see....

  1. I love the the beach, swimming in the cold water, hearing the waves beat against the shore, the balmy warmth from the sun...*sigh* I just love going to the beach. Collecting shells, and building castles are in my top list when going to the beach:)
  2. Harvesting my lavender. The snipping sound as the scissors cut the woody stems of the plant, the sun difussing the scent through the air, the bees buzzing from bud to bud, and the relaxing scent of the lavender itself. After I tie the bundles, I hang it in the eves of the house, I shall never forget the lovely scene of the lavender bundles gently swaying in the breeze, and what a unique scene it is...
  3. The farmer's maket; walking up and down the stands, seeing the fresh produce, and tasting the sweet fruit! There's nothing like it in the whole world!

Your's forever,


  1. Hi Grace!
    I just wanted to stop in and say hello. I apologize for not sending your letter yet. I have been so busy lately.
    I pray that you are having a blessed day, filled with bright and cheerful blessings!

    Your Sister In Christ,

  2. Thanks for entering my blog party, Grace!
    You have 3 entries - for the mandatory entries, you still need to complete the one where you pick favorite items from the three Etsy sellers - after that you'll have 4 entries! :)

  3. Dear Grace,

    So happy to hear you like the necklace! It looks beautiful on you! Cheered me to see the pictures you posted and read your sweet comments. Sorry the day had a rough start but glad I could be a part of brightening it for you.

    Hope this finds you in the middle of a great day!

  4. OOOH, the necklace is soooo pretty!
    Have fun wearing it! :)
    In Christ,
