Tea Time

It's been such a long while since I've been able to join the fun with everyone! Teachers went back to school today, so perhaps I'll be on a regular schedule/routine. Summer break goes quickly when there are classes to take and work to catch up on in the house and garden. Painting still isn't finished, but I am loving my Tea Light.
The garden is where I most often "worship" God in the magnificent creation He has provided for me. So today I'm celebrating God's love for me with my lidless teapot and miniature roses. My life would be incomplete (like the teapot), so this Plan B of my life that I'm living is made easier by God. I'm hoping this all makes sense because I'm not a gifted writer.

"We know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him." I John 4:16
This is also a good reminder for me at the beginning of the new school year.
Please join Sandi for Tea Time. She is our wonderful hostess! ♥♫

Hi Marilyn
So glad you stopped by and now you're a follower! So true about how we are all incomplete w/o God and what a GREAT analogy!

Hello sweet friend...

Ohhh Marilyn, I just adore that pretty little lidless teapot! Your miniture roses are so beautifully displayed in it! Sooo pretty!!! But then, I guess you know how what a "softy" I am for pretty teapots and roses! Hehe! Thank you for sharing your pretties and God's Word with us! I too, am so very thankful for all that He has done for me! I honestly don't know where I would be without having the Lord in my life!!!

Well sweet friend, it sounds like you are back to work/school! I'm sure you will have to do a little adjusting! I remember when I worked at the school...my summers just went by way to fast! It sounds like you've had a lovely summer though!!! Thank you so much for coming by and taking a peek at my birthday teacup! I always enjoy your visits, sweet lady! Thank you for the birthday well wishes...loved your song!!! I had a fabulous birthday!

Warmest wishes,

Beautifully written!!! God is love and His love is the most beautiful! We too have started back to school but it is still important amongst all the craziness to take the time to enjoy the beauty God has surrounded us with:).
