Look what I got in the mail.



I'm stuck home today, this lovely Resurrection Sunday ( the last of the Paschal Sundays) because strep throat is running rampant in my home. Actually, we are now on the mend but one child hasn't been on antibiotics long enough to go out in public and I have 2 that haven't gotten it and I just want to make sure they aren't going to before letting them out.
So I am home and can't wait to tell you what I got in the mail yesterday.
In early May I submitted an entry for this contest and I won! Yesterday my prize came in the mail directly from Sylvia of Adventures of an Orthodox Mom. She made this for ME! It is absolutely gorgeous!!! Thank you so much!!!

Look at the cute little wooden clothespin used as a bookmark. Little did Sylvia know that I REALLY needed many of the quotes she put in the journal. God used her. Thank you, Lord.



There are several quotes, handwritten throughout the journal.



I'm not sure what I'll use it for yet. Either a prayer journal OR a farm journal! I can't decide.
