I am interested in any herb recipes you may have. If you send me a recipe in a swap it will gain you a heart (that includes any herb articles from magazines or printer off the internet).

Profile Bible Verse #7 2018

Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV) β€œFor I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

DLW74 on Jul 3, 2018:

Hi Vanessa! I'm one of your partners for the Profile Bible Verse #7 swap.

It may be one of the most commonly heard verses, but I can't go past 1 Corinthians 13:13 (NIV) because I really do think the world could do with a whole lot more of all three, but particularly, the last.

"And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love."

Have a blessed day, and happy independence day to you, it's already July 4 down here in Australia!
