It’s Teacup Tuesday, thanks to our lovely hostess Kim, at http://shabbypinkandpretty.blogspot.com/. Just click on the teacup on my sidebar and you’ll be instantly escorted to her beautiful blog where you will find some beautiful teacups! I promise to show you my teacup, but first…
If you notice the picture to the right, you’ll see that it says Prayer Warriors. That is what we are when we pray, because we are fighting a battle against illness and disease, and prayer is our weapon. It isn’t loud or angry, like on a battlefield…it is quiet and humble, urgent and sincere. A request for prayer has been sent by Sherry at www.countrywingsinphoenix.blogspot.com for her sweet niece, Amy, who is in critical condition, fighting for her life in ICU. She is barely holding on, but she’s not giving up. Her mom, Debbie, is struggling to see her child suffering this much…it’s a heart wrenching situation for them... please pray for sweet Amy, and click on the angel to visit Sherry to let her know you are praying…she needs to know we are there for her and her family.
Amy, these roses are for you.
I know if it were my loved one, or your loved one, we would ask everyone we could to pray , so we can do no less for them.
Here is a darling mini tea set that I bought at an antique store a few years ago. I paid $30, and thought I got a good deal…until I saw the same set go on ebay for $15! I’m not disappointed, though…I’ve enjoyed it $30 worth!
I love the pink roses and the scalloped edges.
Doesn’t she look like she’s wearing a pretty dress?
I want to share another book I received from my sweet sister for my birthday, “You’re Just My Cup of Tea”. It reminds me of a few years ago when my son was in high school. I was in a group of five moms that got together weekly to pray for our kids. We always had tea…scones, jam, clotted cream, sandwiches…the works, on a small scale. We talked about our kids’ needs, ate, sipped our choice of tea from our own individual teapot, and then we prayed. That was twenty years ago. Today, I still invite friends over for tea…we eat and we sip tea from our china teacups, and sometimes we pray…other times, we talk…and we laugh alot! Even in the midst of trouble, God has given us the gift of humor, and perspective…sometimes things just aren’t as bad as we think. Talking about it over tea really, really helps. There is something very soothing about tea.
I happen to have a stressful life, so I drink about 3 pots a day!
To all my blogging friends…I really appreciate each and every comment…sometimes I can’t believe how many people are actually interested in my home or my teacups. I’m amazed that there are actually people following me! I have to tell you, dear friends, I don’t know where I’m going, but I love the company! There are so many wonderful bloggers out there, with so much to offer, that I so want to make visiting here a good experience for you. I would love to invite each and every one of you to my tea cottage…there’s nothing I like more than company, especially over tea. I love cottage style, and I love tea, and I invite you to join me, anytime, day or night. I always seem to be here at this computer, but I wouldn’t mind at all getting up and putting the kettle on!
Thank you so much for the visit today…I hope it wasn’t too long for you…I’m not always this gabby! Well, there may be some that would disagree with that. Sometimes, though, when there’s something to say, you just have to say it, or the opportunity slips away.
God bless each and every one. I hope all your projects, your hopes and your dreams are all that you desire them to be.
