Spend time being refreshed by God's Word with a cup of tea. Relax in a comfy chair that gets some afternoon sun. Reflect on the goodness of life.

Real joy comes not from ease or riches or
from the praise of men, but from doing something worthwhile. Wilfred T. Grenfell

Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him, bless His name. Ps 100:4

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11

Blessings to you and your family. Have

Rooibos tea

Rooibos tea, also known as bush tea or redbush tea, is grown in South Africa. The tea gets its reddish color from the process of its leaves being chopped and then left out to sun dry to oxidize and improve flavor. It is delicious served with milk and sugar, but can also be enjoyed plain for its sweet and nutty-like flavor. It has become quite popular in recent years and can be served hot or cold. There are many health benefits of drinking rooibos tea.
Rich in Antioxidants

Rooibos tea is rich in antioxidants. According to Chris Casson in the May 2004 issue of Tea Muse, rooibos has many flavinoids, which are free-radical fighting antioxidants. These help to protect the body against cell damage and prevent serious disease such as heart disease and some types of cancer.

Caffeine Free

Unlike many other teas, this one is naturally caffeine free. People can drink the tea before bed and not have their sleep disrupted. It is safe for children and women who are pregnant.

Low Acid Content

This tea is less acidic than other teas, due to its low tannin levels, which makes it easier to drink for people with acid reflux disease.

Healthy Bones

According to Psychology Today (March 2001), rooibos is high in polyphenols, which are associated with maintaining a higher bone density and preventing arthritis.

Allergy Fighter

Rooibos has been found to help pacify allergies and calm an uneasy stomach because of its anti-spasmodic components.

Good for Skin

Rooibos can be used topically to treat skin problems such as eczema. According to it is high in minerals such as potassium, calcium, fluoride and zinc.
