Most of our readers are aware of how much I enjoy coffee! But the truth is that I enjoy tea almost as much as coffee. And I also enjoy a variety of mugs and teacups. That’s why I was excited to join the recent teacup/mug exchange that was hosted by Stephanie at The Enchanting Rose. Abigail and I participated last year and really enjoyed being a part of the swap. This year I had kind of forgotten about it so my decision to join was spur of the moment but I’m glad I did!
Somehow I forgot to take pictures of the things that I sent to my swap partner. Perhaps she will share it on a blog post for Stephanie’s big reveal – a linkup on her blog that will be hosted on Wednesday.
But this is what I received in the mail. Rebekah is the young lady who was given my name – she is from Missouri and is close in age to me 🙂
The mug was hand painted in a studio in her town! It’s such a great reminder in the morning and I really like that song too. She also sent me organic coffee from Equal Exchange – a company that focuses on fair trade and fostering relationships that are beneficial to farmers and consumers. The first thing I smelled when I opened the box were the coffee beans and my, did they smell good! The flavor of this roast is excellent … I’ve enjoyed it several times already.
She also sent me this notebook – isn’t it cute? The verse on the front is such a great reminder! I also love the weights on the bookmark. The crown reminds me that I’m a daughter of the King. And the tree reminds me of the verse that if we trust in YHWH we will be as trees planted by the water that bear much fruit!
The inside pages of the notebook contain inspirational quotes and Bible verses, which also make it special to me 🙂
So Rebekah, if you are reading this, thank you so much for the lovely package! I was thrilled with everything and I’m going to write you a real letter to tell you that – hopefully very soon! Going away camping for 10 days has definitely thrown off my schedule a bit 🙂
