I enjoy having company, truly I do. Last Thursday, I hosted a delightful afternoon of tea and poetry. My dear friend, Lora came over with her linens, china and loose leaf tea. She graced our home with beauty and laughter. The Junior High literature club (8 girls) plus a teen girl that I'm getting to know came with their own doses of healthy laughter and copies of poems old and new. Lora showed the girls how to serve loose leaf tea and we all tasted the herbal goodness. (Okay, to be fair, some opted for hot cocoa, but only after they all had a taste of tea!) Our fellowship was grand as we shared poems, drank tea and nibbled on yummy treats.
God used this time of refreshment and encouragement to sustain me through the next few hours and days as I walked through some difficult circumstances. He is so faithful.
Recently I joined a blog called Home Sanctuary (I mentioned it here.) Who doesn't want to visit a place called "Home Sanctuary"...what am I saying, not just visit but I want my home to be a sanctuary. A sanctuary to learn about and worship the Lord, to love and grow with my hunny and children and to welcome all those who come through the door.
I desire those same things for my blog. So, thank you so much for coming to visit, I have some water in the kettle for tea, please sit a while and talk.
(I love this picture my daughter took of herself. I just had to include it!)
