QUESTION 1: WHEN DID YOU START SNAIL-MAILING?
I started when we moved to Mexico, to keep up with my friends from the States. 🙂
QUESTION 2: HOW MANY PEN PALS DO YOU HAVE?
I’m not even sure. XD Only a few faithful pen-pals, but I have quite a few people that I write on a semi-regular basis. 🙂
QUESTION 3: DO YOU DECORATE YOUR ENVELOPES?
Sometimes yes, when I feel like it, or when I’m not in a big hurry. Which I often am, lol! I love to do it though. 🙂
QUESTION 4: THEMED LETTERS OR RANDOM?
Almost always random, but I like the idea of doing themed letters…
QUESTION 5: IN WHAT COUNTRIES DO YOU HAVE PEN-PALS?
Just the U.S. 😉
QUESTION 6: WHY DO YOU WRITE LETTERS?
1) To keep up with my friends in the States! 2) It’s so much fun!!! 😀
QUESTION 7: DO YOU WRITE LONG LETTERS OR SHORTER LETTERS?
It totally depends. 😉
QUESTION 8: WHEN DO YOU RESPOND TO LETTERS AND HOW QUICKLY?
Well, living in Mexico, it’s a bit complicated as we have to go all the way to the border to get and mail letters. So it usually ends up being at least several weeks. 🙂
QUESTION 9: HAVE YOU EVER WAITED TO OPEN LETTERS?
Yes, sometimes! (Actually, I try, but usually, fail…) XD
QUESTION 10: DO YOU CORRESPOND IN FOREIGN LANGUAGES?
Well, I can talk in Spanish, but I don’t have any pen-pals who speak another language.

He is finishing the work He started in us, making us more and more like Christ.
“If the struggle you’re facing Is slowly replacing your hope With despair Or the process is long And you’re losing your song In the night You can be sure that the Lord Has His hand on you Safe and secure He will never abandon you”
Even when we don’t understand it, everything that comes to pass is in His good and perfect plan. ❤
“Whate’er my God ordains is right: though now this cup, in drinking, may bitter seem to my faint heart, I take it, all unshrinking. My God is true; each morn anew sweet comfort yet shall fill my heart, and pain and sorrow shall depart.”
Ok, so for those of you who are wondering why I posted the last day of this tag twice, and for you who are wondering why I’m so late in posting this, I decided to redo my last post.
After I posted my last blog post (3 Days, 3 Quotes – Day Three) I realized that some of the people I quoted did not reflect a biblical worldview, so I decided to delete that one, and completely redo it. I’m so sorry, and I apologize for any confusion I caused. Thank you!
I knew exactly where this one was, so I was able to find it super fast. 🙂 6 seconds!

After a looong time of searching, I finally found a book with 10 words… Whew… XD Technically, I’m not sure you’re aloud to use sub-titles or not, but I did, so… XD And take back what I said about it being easy… 5 minutes and 22 seconds this time!
