God bless you, dear family and friends ........

My apologies for not posting since November, 2012.  We have had quite a year!!  First, my son decided to relocate out-of-state in January, 2013.  I had brain surgery in March.  A benign tumor (Thank you Jesus) was removed.  My aunt, Myriam Vazquez was hospitalized in June, 2013.  After four months of pain and agony, she passed on in October.  Uncle Tony's wife, Auntie Lynn, was battling with health issues, in and out of the hospital also. We lost her in August.  We have had funerals, but, at the same time, we have had happy times with weddings too.  Good times, bad times.  Thank you Lord for both !!!

I have been preparing quite a few baskets for my dog groomer, Michelle, from Heart-to-Heart Pet Groomers.   She had fruit baskets prepared for her customers upon the death of their pets.  What a beautiful and compassionate gesture.  Bless her heart!

Getting ready for my holiday "Open House" in November and December ...... will have several gift baskets and a few fruit baskets available for sale.  Refreshments will be served.  Further information is upcoming.

God bless you and have a safe and joyous Thanksgiving and Christmas Holiday !!

In "His" peace, Queen Esther

This fruit basket was prepared for our Co-pastor, Heriberto Muñoz and his wife, Nilda on October 28, 2012 in celebration of our 27th year Church Anniversary.  We honored this wonderful couple during our evangelistic service.  Evangelist Angel Baez from Florida joined us during this time.  What a beautiful service!

Friday blessings to all ......

Have been mesmerized at God's creation ... the beautiful colors of the leaves on the trees within the city, the freeways, the suburbs, our backyards, WOW !!!  Red, orange, yellow, even some green yet!  Breathtaking!!  God bless us, God bless America !

Shelves are full of goodies.  Ready for basket orders.  With the holidays upon the horizon, I have been preparing.   Shopping, shopping, and then, shopping some more.  Buying healthy munchies, more baskets, books, etc.  Ready for the busy holidays.  Orders pending for Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays.  God is good!  God is faithful!  To God be the glory!   

Thank you Lord for such a rewarding ministry!

Until we meet again, God bless!

October 8, 2012, visited a VNA Hospice cancer patient.  Loving couple.  Lord laid patient and his wife heavy in my heart so I decided to prepare a beautiful basket for them.  Wife was really surprised and very appreciative.  To God be the glory.   Also met a friend of the wife that was visiting from out-of-town.  She was so happy to see her friend excited about the basket that she placed an order for her for Thanksgiving.   The visit was well worth it.  Please keep this couple in your prayers.

Migdalia's 54th Birthday Basket
September 20, 2012 - Today is my cousin, Migdalia McKenzie's, 54th birthday.  Lord allowed me to prepare her a basket with a lot of goodies.  Goodies she can really enjoy while watching t.v. or spending some quiet time by herself. 

Basket business is picking up.  Have some pending orders for the next couple of months.  With Sweetest Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year's, and all those other commerialized holidays, I expect to be very busy.  Praise God.  Looking forward to it.

I have completed my 100th basket/gift bag since the inception of my ministry, which was March, 2011.  To God be the glory !!!

This has brought me great joy and has kept me busy running from store to store, looking for basket fillers.   

Basket prices vary depending on the size and items purchased.  Starting at a low price of $20.00 for a smaller basket.  

We aim to please all of our customers, from the simplest to the elaborate!!!
