Tea Talk- Waiting.....



Right now I'm Having:

This is a lovely tea with a cinnamon spice tone to it. It is very comforting and very addictive. Its similar to drinking spice cake without the crumbs or the calories.

My Mug is from Cows. I used to collect anything that was a cow. When I first moved out on my own my kitchen was cowified. During my honeymoon, my hubby and I went to the Cow store in Banff, Alberta, Canada. I purchased the mug with a Cow sitting among a field of sunflowers and the quote "Common Cow taking time to Stop and Smell the flowers."

I'm waiting right now for my hubby to get home as we are going to my in-laws for Easter and to see our niece get married. So, I guess you could say I'm bored. I'm pretty much packed, but I know once he gets home, I'll be busy because of those last minute things that need to be done.

My Bible Babes and I are currently working on the study "No Other Gods" by Kelly Minter. Its a great study on our idols that we worship and how they claim control over our lives. This week we were to name the idols that take priority over our time with God. I have to admit that my friends are my small "g" gods. I dislike quietness and boredom. I'm a get up and go kind of girl and I have to be doing something always. I rarely am sitting - something I notice by the end of the day when the dogs are barking. So this week I'm going to leave a quote that has been profound to me from Kelly Minter this week.

There will always be a million nagging tugs on our time and attention, and somewhere in the middle of all the tugging it is essential we build a fortress wherein only God, His words, and our heart exist together for a time. It rarely happens accidentally.

Now go and visit with Ruth at Celebrate Friendship and share your Tea Talk.

Hi Michelle. So glad to have you joined Tea Talk this week. Your tea sounds really good and your mug looks delightful as I imagine. You are the first person I know who likes to collect 'cows' and they're lovely and friendly animals so it must be delightful to collect them.

Hope you have a grand time visiting relatives and a blessed time celebrating Easter.

Blessings!

Ruth

I love that tea!

I had to intentionally soak in the quiet this afternoon, too. It was so good - it gave me the chance to really think through my priorities and why I do the things I do. Sometimes that silence is a good thing. ;)

Hi Michelle~ I'm a friend of Ruth's blog and saw your post. Your cow comments reminded me of one of our favorite books...Ferdinand by Munro Leaf...bet your littles would love it.

Thank you for sharing your tea time with us and Happy Easter.
