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.  It has such a wonderful aroma and it tastes so very good.

My teacup... one of is my favorite cup.

I'm feeling... energized.  We started a new upgrade for the computers at work yesterday and after some initial glitches that were resolved the day went rather well.  Looking forward to todays adventure!

On my mind...Bible Study tonight and and RCIA presentation the needs some revisions.  Have an entire weekend to work on this so it should be good.

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.
We had a lovely gentle rain last night.  None of those high winds and branches being blown from the trees kind of rains.  Just the earth pampering rain.  It's been a long time since we've had one of them.

Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience.

Thanks be to God! 


  1. The flowers are beautiful and the tea sounds warm and cozy. It's cool this morning. Have a wonderful day!

  2. I almost made Good Earth tea this morning.... must be very popular.

  3. Hi, Cathy! I'm glad things are going smoothly for you, especially with computers. They sometimes can cause some major headaches!

    I hope you have another beautiful day in the Lord!!


  4. Hello Cathy. I'm glad to hear you feel energized today. That's a tea-rific cup you have there!

    I love the quote you have on patience.

    I hope you have a beautiful day.

  5. Beautiful photo and beautiful quotes! I need to pray more like that.
    I read a quote recently about how the only real gift we have to offer on the altar of God is to give to Him our will, for anything else is really a gift that was given to us from Him.
    Saying "Thy Will Be Done" and actually meaning it, well, that's something I'm working on. Usually my prayer is something like "cure this one, heal that one, make this situation better, give this one a job, etc." and it's almost never "Thy Will Be Done".
    I guess I need to constantly remind myself that my will may not always be His Will.
    And I need to pray more to be 'formed' in Christ.

    Thanks for the reminder.
    Love and Prayers,

  6. I hope some of that soft, quenching rain finds its way to Texas -- they need some!

  7. So many good things in this post! I like that -- an "earth pampering rain" -- nice!

  8. Thank you! Your zeal and energy are contagious!
    I am ready for the day now!!

  9. Hi Cathy! I missed tea yesterday, but wanted to stop by anyway :-)

    The day ALWAYS goes better once the computer glitches are solved, doesn't it? LOL!

    Have a great day :-)
