God grant you the light in Christmas, which is faith;
the warmth of Christmas, which is love;
the radiance of Christmas, which is purity;
the righteousness of Christmas, which is justice;
the belief in Christmas, which is truth;
& all of Christmas, which is Christ.

A Package Delivered!

John went to the post office this afternoon & came back with a package for me!  Inside was a card & this prettily wrapped gift with the cutest little picture & stitching poem on it!

Here is what was inside the envelope & the wrapping ... this beautiful tea themed pinkeep, a skein of the thread used to stitch it, & a delightful card filled with kind words from my dear friend Sally at Stitchyangel's Treasures!!!
A while back I learned that Sally is a fellow tea lover so I set about stitching a tea themed RAK for her.  Little did I know that at the same time she decided to stitch a tea themed RAK for me ... lol!  Thank you again dear friend!  Many, many hugs to you   : )
