A GIFT!!!

LOOK!!!! what came in the mail for me yesterday all the way from South Africa. Retha, of Retha's Rambles , not only sent me a box of 40 Rooibos Teabags but had a special angel made for me. It is precious and adorable. Made out of wire and beads. The main part is silver with the halo and wings gold. Then I received a wonderful six page letter from Retha telling me more and sharing more with me. I love each and every part of it, Retha. Even the box with the South Africa stamps!!! Such a surprise and such a blessing.

Retha recently became the FIRST world wide participant in our Hearts In "1" Accord prayer team blog. I say first because I know that God has called this team to be a world wide 24/7 group. Circling the world with none ending, every hour, every day prayer. What a wonderful thing that will be.

Please drop over and meet Retha and get to know her. You will be blessed indeed.
Thank you so very much Retha. You surprised the socks off of me and blessed me to tears.

It would be interesting to know how you had the tea. Strong, black or white.
Is this a taste you could enjoy or will you have to get used to it.

Susan-
They are very beautiful gifts, but I am worried about your address being on this post.
It's not safe!
Take care

What a sweet surprise. I had to smile when you mentioned that you'even enjoyed the South Africa stamps.' I would have felt the same way and got a thrill knowing that the box itself was from there.
I pray many more blessings find their way to your door.
