Tea Talk - Pepsi Afternoon

I'm having....1/2 glass of cold Pepsi. I gave pop up for Lent and now try to only have 1 glass of pop a day. Since it's 24 C here today, I may treat myself to two.

My my favourite Princess House crystal beverage glass. It holds 1 whole can of pop and then some. It's similar to the following picture, however, I must have the old style because mine is not tulip shaped, but straight. I love the new look and may have order some when the kids get older and I'm not worried about them breaking glasses.

I'm feeling....happy, I just had a few friends over this morning as we planned the Big Cook for next week. Now, I have to get the laundry out on the line before 2:30 pm or they won't dry by dinner.

On my mind....that we take so much for granted that God gives us and that He definitely can get our attention when He wants to. While preparing for my bible study this week, I was definitely slapped around by Him, in a good way. It was truly a wake up call on His behalf.

I'm going to leave you with the quote that He placed upon me this week.

So if you're serious about living this new resurrection life with Christ, act like it. Pursue the things over which Christ presides. Don't shuffle along, eyes to the ground, absorbed with the things right in front of you. Look up, and be alert to what is going on around Christ—that's where the action is. See things from his perspective. (Colossians 3:1-2 Msg).

P.S. My bible did italicize the act!!

Now go and share your tea talk with Ruth at Celebrate Friendship!

Hi Michelle, thanks for dropping by my blog porch =)

I just had ice cold soda too, and enjoyed every drop of it in our summer hot weather!

Have a great weekend and God bless you!

Andrea - I know you want them too.

Kari - It's ok. It's great to see you again. Admittedly, I've been missing in action as well.

Anne and Ruth - Thanks for dropping by this week.

Hello Michelle, That is a spectacular glass, Yes it would be nice to have a set, and its nice to have friends over.
Thanks for dropping by my Tea Talk. Dilmah is a popular tea here in Australia, and is probably the most advertised on TV.
Yes that is the big deal, to ACT like we are a child of the King.
