Weekend of Blessings

Strange how a teapot can represent at the same time the
 comforts of solitude and the pleasures of company.
~~Author Unknown~~

I'm having...a cup of English Breakfast tea

My teacup...a Tea-rrific mug

I'm feeling...calm.  Even though my witness talk for Christ Renews His Parish is on Monday evening and I will be gone to a conference all weekend at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods I am confident that the Holy Spirit will be my guide.  Preparation is done.  Thanks be to God!  

On my mind...are the plans for this weekend.  We will be attending Women of Providence in Collaboration as a Providence Associate.  The speaker will be Reverend Ron Rolheiser, OMI and the topic is Providence:  Mystical Window on the World.  I cannot tell you how I look forward to hearing him speak!

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.

Joy comes in many forms.
And this day has the potential of
being just as grand as

Four wonderful days
at Saint Mary-of-the-
I must be open to it!
