Morning Tea and Inspiration

I'm joining with Sandi at Rose Chintz Cottage today. Please click the link or the picture of the two friends sharing tea to return to visit the other participants.

Each morning when I go to the sink to get water for my morning tea, I am looking at my small worship center right on the window sill.
I have hearts and words that encourage me each day.
Some things are only an inch or two across, about the size of a quarter, but the messages mean a lot to me. The angel says "JOY", from my own Sarah JOY and the snowflake was a gift from my other Sarah (Jo). Just try saying those two names quickly over and over.
The "Lamb of God" and my dog (Depend On God) don't have meaning to some people, but many of you will 'get it' right away!
As you begin your tea ritual each day perhaps these words from I Corinthians 16:14 will come to mind: Let all you do be done in love.

Even though there's not a drop of tea here today, it all begins with the water. Who is our living water? Thank you Sandi! ♥♫

Hi Marilyn,
Thanks for stopping by. Well I have no plans for the other side of the table. At least not yet. So you can gladly have it. Only I think getting it to you would be prohibitive. LOL.
Love your little worship center. Such sweet thoughts to begin the morning.
Hugs~ Amanda

Hi Marilyn...

I really enjoyed seeing your inspirational messages, my friend! And...I DID get "The Lamb of God" and DOG!!! I don't know what we would do if we didn't have the Lord to go to! Don't want to find out! Well sweet lady, how is everything going over your way? Can you believe the hot day that we had on Monday? I think it got close to 100 here...what is that about? Hehe!

Have a wonderful and blessed week, my friend!

Good morning my friend,
I loved your post! There is no teacup but what you have shared today is more important. Your post is very inspirational and I love all the little worship center messages you have surrounded yourself with. Thank you for sharing and have a beautiful day.

Blessings,
Sandi

Oh How Cool! I love what you have done. Its given me an idea! I have the flip stands with verses, but not at my window, but up in bathroom where I dress. But I love how each of your goodies has such a meaning to them!

Wonderful and inspiring!
Happy TEA!

Hey Marilyn!
I enjoyed your post today...I actually needed it! :) Having some surgery done on Thursday and needed a little uplifting. :) You always do that for me! I got the "lamb of God" and you dog..immediately! :) hee hee hee
I had to smile when you quoted the scripture I Corinthians 16:14....you see my little boy (Carson) was going through the house the other day randomly quoting scriptures and the last one he quoted was this one. Then he said, "mommy, don't you think everyone should really try and live by that...the world would be a better place". My 9 year old is wiser than his years! :)

Hey, glad my light fixture inspired you! LOL I needed a little inspiration myself today and got it from you!
Love you lots!
HUGS!
