Tea Cup Exchange Reveal (a little bit late!)

Hi, Friends!
I am....ahem...a little late on revealing what a beautiful tea cup my exchange partner sent me. 
I must confess that I have been so anxious that I was late doing this post, that I almost didn't do it at all! I felt guilty and worried, and was just driving myself crazy!

But then...

I clicked again on beautiful  Stephanie's blog, went to the reveal page, and began perusing.
And ladies? Can I just tell you what a blessing you all are?

Through all the gracious exchanges, and friendly words, and beautiful friendships and notes, I felt my worry dissipate, and realized how privileged I was to be able to participate with such a lovely group.

I am sorry this is late - I hope I may still participate again if I am able, and truly want you all to know what a blessing it is to get to know you all, and to read through all your words!

Now, onto the wonderful package the lovely Cindy from Creations by Cindy sent me!

First off - the beautiful rose cup and coaster. 
So pretty and feminine and I love roses! 
I enjoy using this mug every day during my little homeschooling breaks - a little mini-treat in the middle of the day!

 Cindy also sent me lots of little gifts along with the mug!

My absolute favorite is that gorgeous floral box...I am not sure I have ever owned anything so pretty. It is very sturdy, with a smooth metal latch and handle. 
I plan on keeping my stationary in it, and will think of Cindy every time I see it.

 So many wonderful little treasures in that treasure box:
The most delicious smelling black tea - it scented the whole package, and even now when I open my cabinet, I inhale that wonderful aroma. I'll be sad when I drink the last of it!

Delicious chocolate that my sons gladly helped me eat up, more tea, some bright and cheerful tea towels, many little bookmarks and note cards with messages from Cindy, and a terrific little devotional by Henry Blackaby.

I was truly blessed by your gifts, Cindy....thank you so much!

I was also privileged to send a package to Oliva of Oliva's Creative Quest...you can see what I sent her at the link. I had so much fun reading through Oliva's blog and trying to find things that she would enjoy - it was my favorite part of this whole experience.

Thank you so much, ladies!

Have a blessed day, my friends!

Bits of Spring

Do you see the buds?

God's love is written upon every opening bud, upon every spire of springing grass.
-Ellen G. White

The trees are bearing their fruit; the fig tree and the vine yield their riches.
-Joel 2:22

Precious friends, I pray that you feel God's love through every bit of spring popping up around you!
Thank you for stopping by!

Tea Cup and Mug Exchange

I am delighted to share with you a wonderful exchange hosted by the lovely Stephanie at The Enchanting Rose . Sweet Stephanie's blog has been such an encouragement to me, and her beautiful example inspires me to make this blog a place of peace, worship and encouragement. I am so excited to participate in her tea cup exchange for the very first time!

So, what is an exchange?

An exchange is a trade: you send a lovely lady a gift or package, and you receive one in return. 
In this case, you send and receive to two different ladies, making two new friends in the process. You may choose to send a tea cup or a mug, or both.

It's a marvelous way to bless someone's day, and be blessed in return.

Welcome to Little Bits of Blessings! 

I am so pleased you stopped by.

I hope and pray that my words and pictures here will bless, encourage and uplift you.

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.
