Have a cup of Tea !





I really don't need a dedicated Month to have hot tea, I love it all during the year!
Since it is "Hot Tea Month" , I'll use it as another excuse to have my after lunch Tea, along with a couple of Oatmeal Raisin Cookies!








My Narcissus are smelling so sweet!







Have a Blessed afternoon!

Sunday Morning Coffee - Kindness









Good Morning, dear readers.  As I read my daily journal this morning, I was inspired to share with each of you.

There was a photo shared on social media once, by someone that witnessed an act of Kindness.
As an older passenger sat on a New York subway, a younger man sitting next to him fell asleep and gently his head fell onto the shoulder of the older man. Other passengers offered to wake him up, but quietly the older man said, "He must be tired and had a long day, let him sleep. We've all been there".
The older man's kindness reflects the heart of God.. we all long for this. 
In Mark 10:13-16, We see the gentleness in Jesus when the little children came to see him, and the disciples tried to stop them. Jesus said to them, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these." Jesus took the child and sat him on his lap and blessed him.
To find this kind of kindness we all must come to him as a child humble ourselves before him.
We can be assured that we are safe in Him, whether we are asleep or awake, we can LEAN on Him, when we are tired and can find rest for He is a safe place for us.

Under His wings, I am safely abiding,
though the night deepens
and tempests are wild;
still I can trust Him-I know He will keep me,
He has redeemed me and I am His child.

We can all be blessed when we offer
Kindness to others!


Have a Blessed Sunday

Thankful Thursday














Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good!
For His mercy endures forever.
Psalms 107:1 NKJV
















Everyday is a Blessing.
Be Thankful!

The habit of just saying "Thank you" enriches every aspect of our lives. It cost nothing, but creates so much joy for both the giver and the receiver. Always be ready to express thanks. You will then discover how much joy you can bring to others.

I Love Biscuits







We don't always like what we are dealt with some days. The day may be fun or not so likeable! Good  or bad God is in control, and there is usually a lesson we can learn from it if we just stop wait and learn from it. Sometimes God allows conflict to teach us a lesson. We just need to be patient.

This is a lesson I am learning. I am bad about answering quickly and not thinking it through when I am facing a decision. God is still working on me.  He's mixing and baking and I'm waiting to see what He has for me.



Have a Blessed Tuesday
