Tea Talk--Character Exhibited

Welcome to my home!
Sit and have a cup of tea with me and share a little time of relaxation and encouragement.
To join, click on Ruth's button above!

I'm having...peppermint tea.  My tea cup is the Pfaltzgraff Ocean Breeze pattern, and matches our everyday dishes.  It is shown below (not with peppermint tea!) with a breakfast of cinnamon apple puff (recipe tomorrow).

I'm feeling...tired but calm, and looking ahead to a day filled with activity.

On my mind...I'm asking the Lord for His grace today.  So many mishaps and little accidents have occurred around here this week that I'm wondering what the Lord has in store for me today!  And I'm praying that He gives grace to help me yield to Him throughout His plan for my day.

I leave you with...a quote I just found, which describes my week.  May the Lord grant me grace to submit to His loving plan for me, be it easy or hard, simple or complicated, smooth or full of pits.

Character is not made in a crisis; it is only exhibited.

  1. Dear Christine,
    It's so hard when life brings us the unexpected, hang in there!!!!.....It's funny that you are sharing a quote on character, for my daughter and I, just had a talk about character the other day.
    Have a wonderful blessed to overflowing day!

  2. Good Morning, Sweet Friend! At the end of all the chaos and "calamity," there is always a peace in the yielding of our control, isn't there? May He bless you with grace and joy today!

    Love you,

  3. Good Morning! Thanks for sharing your tea time with me. I'm feeling tired alongside you. I'm sorry for your mishaps this week and hope that you feel refreshed and ready for special blessings.

  4. Here's another quote for you ~ one I really like: "Wherever you are, be all there. Live to the hilt every situation you believe to be the full will of God."
    ~ by missionary martyr Jim Elliot, husband to author Elisabeth Elliot Gren

  5. Hi Christine,
    I always look forward to seeing your tea photos. You always have something beautiful to show us. Loved this one very much!

    I'm sorry you have a not so good week. I pray for God's abundant grace be upon you as you yield to whatever plan He has for you this coming days.

    Thanks for that beautiful quote. It is so true.

    I hope you find more time to relax today.


  6. God bless you today. The trying of your faith is more precious than gold...(1Peter) He LOVES you.

    Oh, and I think I will just have breakfast with you every morning, o.k.? You always eat such yummy stuff, plus I don't eat a lot...all I need is a taste really.

  7. Thank you all, dear sisters, for the encouraging comments! I appreciate and am uplifted by every single one of them.

    Helen--I'm going to have to remember that quote.

    Ruth--Thank you for the wishes!

    Mrs. Santos--I love those verses in Peter. And you're welcome to breakfast with us any time!! :)


  8. Hi Christine, many thanks for dropping by. Nice to see you around, happy weekend!
