Before I describe yet another great mail day, I must vent a little bit. My friend Kierstin wrote a long letter and sent it my way 2-3 weeks ago. I have yet to receive her letter. It is very distressing! I've resorted to praying for God to send the letter to my house. Perhaps He will. What else can I do? Johnny doesn't think it would help much to chat w/our mail lady. Kierstin's letter could've gone astray anywhere between Tennessee and Texas. With the recent increase in postal rates, this dilemma is extra annoying. Shouldn't our extra pennies ensure faithful letter deliveries? I'm still holding out for Kierstin's letter, though. God has done stranger, greater things.
With that behind me, look what I received from sweet Robyn:
[the cutest golden bird magnets ~ a perfect addition to our fridge]
[lovely artwork by Robyn herself ~ a tribute to this piece by Erin Lang Norris]
[a Lotta Jansdotter seedling journal!]
[I always need pretty notebooks handy. Thank you, Robyn.]
I don't know what I've done to receive such amazing mail lately. I'll tell you, I haven't done much good. I chalk it up to God's grace. He's put great friends in my life year after year, and they (and He) are too good to me. I just hope I have the opportunity to mail fun encouragement to my compadres when their souls need a boost.
Before I go, I must offer another apology. I am sadly behind on correspondence: thank you notes, letters, and even facebook e-mails. I'm very sorry, y'all. Please bear with me, and pray to God my snail mail actually gets to you.
