The Joy in Tea Talk

Sometimes, during my hours of prayer, I picture myself as a piece of stone before a sculpture who intends to make a statue our of it. Presenting myself like this before the Lord, I beg him to form form in my soul his perfect image and make me wholly like Christ. ~Brother Lawrence~

I'm having...Good Earth decaf original tea.  Seems to be a perfect day to celebrate Mother Earth with this tea on this day of Season Change.

My teacup... is nearly empty but it was oh so good.

I'm feeling... glad I was able to get a lot of things done yesterday and am ready for work today!

On my mind...The busy weekend!!!  Tomorrow is Kellie's Senior Night recognition at the football game, working at Mother Teresa's Treasures on Saturday, marching band contest Saturday afternoon and then friends for dinner on Sunday!  Exciting!!!!

Please join Ruth at Tea Talk today.


Today I also join Meri for Share the Joy Thursday.   For I believe we need to find it in my life every day no matter the realities in which we live.  God is Good in so many ways even in times of trial.

Enjoy the glorious colors of this Autumn Season!

Thanks be to God!!!
