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

Watermelon Iced Tea

6  tsp black tea leaves preferably Ceylon
3 cups boiling water
3 cups ice
1/6 or 1/4 watermelon cut into cubes
2 tbls lemon juice
1 tbls sugar
1 sprig of mint, plus a few extra for garnish if desired

Combine tea leaves and boiling water in a teapot
Let steep for 3-5 minutes
Strain the tea leaves
Set the tea aside in the fridge or freezer
Combine all ingredients but the tea in a blender. Blend until smooth using the "blend" setting. It should take about 30 seconds. As needed, stop blending to push the ingredients toward the blades with a spoon.

Once the mixture is smooth, you can proceed to  add the tea or cover the mixture until shortly before you plan to serve Watermelon Iced Tea. (Combining the watermelon mixture and the tea just before serving prevents the drink from separating
When you're almost ready to serve Watermelon Iced Tea, pour the brewed black tea over a pitcher of ice. Most of the ice will melt, but you've brewed the tea extra strong to accommodate for this dilution.
Just before serving Watermelon Iced Tea, combine all ingredients in a large glass pitcher. Stir well. If the drink begins to separate into layers (as is natural for agua fresca-style drinks), simply stir it again.
