2017 SAVE MONEY CHALLENGE time for the last update. Merry Christmas!
Hi Abigail, Thank you for the card (Postcard roulette swap intl #3)! My exchange year in Japan was incredible (yes I most certainly received special attention from my classmates - actually even all my schoolmates. The school has about 1200 students, in front of which I had to hold a speech on my very first day, so they all knew me... And: No I didn't study all night long, as I wasn't a "normal" student and my grades didn't count... But I did go to school on days of for my club activities (kyudo - Archery and kado - Flower arrangement)). I don't know if I am consistent enough to be a postcard pal (I usually start forgetting to send stuff after a few exchanges if I don't have any "reminder" from swap-bot). But if you want we can most certainly try - just send me a message with your address if you are up for it! I hope you have a lovely day, Sophie
(Roulette swap #2 unassigned, received 20-4-17)
Hello and thank you for picking me to send this awesome unassigned keep calm-postcard to!
First let me say I love your small, neat handwriting :) And no I do not have penpals/postcard pals. Have a great summer!
Uplifting Scripture â™¡
Hello, and thank you for joining my swap! This is one of my favorite scriptures, if I get scared before bed I just read this verse and I automatically feel better :)
When you lie down, you will not be afraid; when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet.
May God bless you and your family â™¡
UPLIFTING SCRIPTURE: I thought that this swap was especially appropriate considering the time of year I have many different scriptures I turn to at different times, but a scripture Iâ€™ve always loved is Isiah 9:6 (taken from the KJV)
â€œFor unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.â€
I think the reason I love this so much is that it reminds me of the different rolls that Christ has and will take. He is the prince of peace, he can act as out counselor, he is our God, our Savior.
This meant a lot to me a few years ago when I was unemployed
We read this in church today for Resurrection Day! May it be a reminder for that no matter what you may be going through in your life, the Lord is by your side!!!
The Lord is my strength and my defense;
he has become my salvation.
Shouts of joy and victory
resound in the tents of the righteous:
â€œThe Lordâ€™s right hand has done mighty things!
The Lordâ€™s right hand is lifted high;
the Lordâ€™s right hand has done mighty things!â€
I will not die but live,
and will proclaim what the Lord has done.
Hi, here is one of my favorite uplifting verses.
uplifting scripture swap
Proverbs 3:5-6 5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; 6 in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.
