Hello! As I said in an earlier post I am participating in a teacup/mug exchange!
Well, yesterday, I received my parcel. I extremely surprised at who the sender was - My old friend Sarah Stanton! She and her family used to attend our church but moved to CO in 2013 or something like that. Anyway, she sent me the most lovely little treasures and the most gorgeous mug! Here are some pictures:
She sent me a beautiful mug that has the words "Today is a good day" scripted on it, a funny little hat that I have placed on my tiny stuffed cat on my bed, some really cool fish mints (they are in the shape of a fish, they don't taste like fish, ha ha!), a small binder of 366 reasons God's love looks good on and in me. Each day there is a different verse or quote. She also sent the most delicious Chai tea ever - the herbs are in little silk bags and the tea was made in England! She also sent along the most beautiful card ever!
Here are my mints, binder and mug! Aren't they beautiful?!
I really have been enjoying my new mug and tea!
Thank you so much, Sarah! I loved your gift!
Quite a few people have asked me these questions, and I wanted to take some time with everyone to just "Get To Know Lizbeth." In the contact area is where you can send questions of your own I and I'll add them here=)
You guys ready? Here we go!
1. What are your favorite books?
"Shadow Of His Hand", "Do Hard Things", "The Hiding Place", "This Changes Everything". and "A Little Princess"
2. What is your favorite ice-cream flavor?
Cookies 'n Cream, Mint Chip
3. What are your favorite movies?
"Beyond The Mask", "Alone Yet Not Alone", "The War Within" and "Anne of Green Gables." I'm pretty sure there's more but I can't think of any right now;)
4. What is your biggest fear?
People going to Hell
5. What is the best prank you’ve ever played?
My best trick is when someone has a bowl of cereal or something and they set their spoon, down and when the are not looking I take it and then when they look again they are thinking "Oh my! I thought I got a fork! Maybe I didn't!" and when they go to get another one I put it back and then they are, like, "Oh my! I've got blind eyes!"
6. If you could be any animal, what would you be?
I would be a dog, I'm fed and watered, I can go sleep whenever I want to, I can go swimming, fishing and come when I want belly rubs and I can play and follow my owner around everywhere, so, being a dog would be pretty great;)
7. What is your favorite color?
I like black, grey, white, hot-pink and blue:)
8. What is your worst word?
I actually really hate the word 'squat,' I'm not so sure why, I just don't like the word 'squat.' I don't even like how you spell it;)
9. What is one of your biggest “pet-peeves”?
I get bothered when people lick their plate at dinner and I don't like the sound of fingernails on chalkboards,
10. Who are your favorite authors that have impacted you the most?
Brett & Alex Harris, Jaquelle Crowe, Corrie ten Boom, Wendy Lawton and Anita Dittman.
11. If you could have one super-power, what would it be?
I would probably have the power of healing, just, sickness takes away so much from life and when Jesus comes on the clouds, He will come to heal the broken hearts.
12. What is the worst tea you’ve ever tasted?
Umm, most assuredly that would be Eyebright tea, if you've never tasted it, I advice to never do so as it is extremely bitter!
Well, I hope you enjoyed this "Get to Know Lizbeth" and keep asking your questions! I enjoy answering them;)
In a few days days will be my sister's birthday, and I wanted to acknowledge what a wonderful sister she has been.
There was a time when all my friends left me, she was the only friend that stayed by me. She has never let me down.
She is such a servant who always thinks of others first.
She is the best sister anyone can ever ask for, I truly love her more than anything.
I can honestly say that the quote "A sister is a true friend forever" is absolutely true with Destiny. She always makes me happy with her goofy behavior!
In a few days she will be turning nine years old, I'll certainly miss her being six, but every year it gets better and better.
Her picture is featured on the photo above, isn't she a beauty?! Look at those eyes! (A shout out to my aunt Martha for the awesome photography).
My sister loves witnessing and loves seeing people coming to Christ, she has been a real blessing to me. She is one of my "besties", and I hope will be forever.
Finally, I want to thank God for giving me such an incredible sister, Destiny, you truly are a bright star. I'll love you always,
D. Lizbeth Erazo
