Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything that is beautiful for beauty is God's handwriting--a wayside sacrament. Welcome it in every fair face, in every fair sky, in every fair flower, and thank God for it as a cup of blessing.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Read "Everything I Know I Learned Over Tea" tonight to relax after a day of teaching at co-op. It's a great quick read and encourages to take time for family, for friends, for even yourself in this hurried world. Always enjoying a tea party with family, I am going to try this little tradition as part of our 3:00 snack each day. A little time out in the busyness of school, chores, homemaking, etc. to reflect on the blessings of the day, the needs of my children, or even to dig into the Word to refill from a day of "pouring out". May we each take time each day with or without tea to reflect on the goodness and the greatness of our wonderful Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
