Tea on the Porch

I enjoy sitting on the porch in the early morning listening to the birds sing. They seem to be much happier in the earlier morning hours, maybe it's like us, we're fresh and ready for the day, but as it goes on we get tired from our daily chores. That's when I take my cup of tea and go to my rocking chair on the porch.


It has been a few weeks since I posted on my blog. I needed time to rest and reflect, refocus on where I was going in life.
Last week two more of my grandchildren graduated from high school. They are learning that there's a life out there and will now focus on what to do with it.

Ephesians 2:10 
"We are God's handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good work, which God prepared in advance for us to do".

As our graduates begin to build on their life plans, as believers we too are to focus on how our life is being lived out. Are we living with selfish reasons doing as we please or are we seeking God's will.

My pray for them is to always seek to do that which is right and seek God's will, then they will have the joy and peace found only in Him.

Enjoy your Blessings,


  1. Congrats to your grandchildren, they are now beginning a new journey on their life's highway. May God bless them and keep them with each step they take. Welcome back to blogland, you've been missed.

  2. My nephew just graduated from high school too. God bless our graduates!

  3. Missing you here!
    Congratulations on your family's newest graduates!
    May God bless them with peace and joy. : )

  4. Hi Sylvia, I looked at the previous your birds and their cute houses. I am glad you are enjoying time on the porch. I have sat out this week too. It's been so very nice...rain is moving is today. Hopefully not big heavy stuff. Yes, there's a lot of young people graduating . Hope they are ready to join the work force and can get a decent job. It would be wonderful if young people knew they needed God every day...not just in tough times. Blessings to you dear friend, xoxo, Susie

I know how wonderful it is to be able to spend time with family and grandchildren wonderful for you and for them! Enjoy your tea time on the porch while the weather cooperates! Such a pleasant time to commune with the Lord and His creation as you start the day. Thank you for sharing it with us!

  10. Sylvia, it's so nice that you sit out on your front porch with a cup of tea and listen to the bird's song. I am a morning person, so I often see the sunrises. Isn't it a beautiful time of day? Your porch chairs are so charming.

    Your blog is filled with peace and beauty.


  11. Your front porch looks so inviting Sylvia. I could see myself sitting and rocking and watching nature.
