A Delightful Gift From Indonesia

"Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father
in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ."
Ephesians 5:20

I have met a very special friend through blogging
and my heart is thankful for our growing friendship.
has been such a blessing and encouragement to me.
She is a beautiful light shining forth for our Lord and Savior
with a desire to serve Him in all that she does.

I am truly amazed at the way God works;
He can allow two girls from different countries to meet over the computer
and allow our hearts to connect and become friends.
I have not met Delvalina in person, but I feel like I have known her for years.
Delvalina sent me a Kebaya for Christmas
which is a traditional Indonesian outfit for the ladies.


 I thought I would share some pictures of me in the Kebaya :)






The detail on the top is stunning!




Our God is so good and full of blessings.
I will enjoy wearing this beautiful outfit :)
Much love to my sweet friend!

Hi, I hopped over from A Vintage Fairy as I was intrigued by your name and also your present from Indonesia. How beautiful and intricately made. It looks lovely on you!! I, too, am a Christian and it just blesses my heart when I find other bloggers who are too. It's that invisible thread that joins us all together! I'm looking forward to spending more time with you this year and finding out about your life. Happy and Blessed New Year. Joan

I love your blog ... you are so inspiring and I can just feel the love you have for our God.

The dress is beautiful and looks great on you. What a nice relationship from so far away. Blogging has opened the doors for so many of us to make friends. Don't know where all this leads, but for now we are blessed.
Happy new year.

You look so beautiful! What a lovely dress from a precious friend.
I have missed coming to see you while we were away! So many wonderful posts my dear. I will just comment here for all of them. Beautiful memories of when you were just a little girl and all those special ornaments that were collected over the years.
I'm not real sure what my favorite post would be as I have loved them all. You have done a fabulous job in blog land! I will say that the deoderant has been a great change for me, I just love it!
Thank you for all your encouraging and inspiring words from our precious Savior, and the beautiful photography that you put with them. Always so beautiful.

There is something "enchanting" about your blog, and I find myself drawn to it daily.
Thank you for sharing it ALL with us.

With much love to you!
