It is time to show you what I sent to my swap partner, Anna - for the Haven Swap! I was so excited to be her swap partner, because not only do we enjoy lots of the same things - I am trusting that this box would be a great blessing to her. She is a missionary in Africa and I am thankful for her willingness to serve God there - and thankful that she could participate in this swap while she was home for a few weeks!
I made little tags for each thing describing how that item could contribute to making her home a haven:
Haven...a place where His light shines; lamp
Haven...a place where others are welcomed! Brunch invitations
Haven...a place where Christ is Lord - welcomed and worshiped. Celtic Worship 2 CD
Haven...a place where I can express my personality and surround myself with beauty the way I see it. Simply SenseSational Decorating Simple Steps to a Beautiful, God-Centered Home
I forgot to write down what I wrote to go with this candle - but I thought it was very old fashioned, which she likes!
Haven...a place where I am nourished and refreshed so I can be renergized to serve others. And, a place that smells good! enamelware cup and mulling spices
Haven...A place that is blessed with His peace, presence and love. His blessing ~ Bless This Home box
Here is what she sent me, look how cute the box was!
She included these neat animals made in Africa for Emily and Rachel - they've already had fun with these!
Candle holder with vanilla candle - mmm!
Neat bar of soap, homemade dish cloth - love this:
Pretty notepaper, cute card with tea bag for a relaxing cup of tea, this neat devotional book - I've always been intrigued by the Amish and am excited to read this:
Framed 1 Corinthians 13 - matches our room great and this cute Fruit of the Spirit garland:
This might be my favorite thing - I love this tablecloth she sent. She included that she bought it from a lady in Africa who was earning money to send home to her family.
Thanks, Anna for making this a great swap! Head over to Carrie's to see more swap goodies!
