We share tea and talk tea at assisted living homes, private homes and community centers. We play Teago Bingo with prizes for winners. We are also doing mystery tea events.
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 a TEA- rrrific day.

Traveling TEA With Jesus

Fill my cup, Lord
After reading a couple of devotions from this book along with a cup or two of tea I thought it would be a great book to pass along to my fellow tea drinkers.
Some bits of the devotion entitled A cup of Service. The Lord's blessings flow freely along with two important acts on my part.
Surrender and Serve. We need to surrender our lives to Jesus. We develop a taste of service only as we develop a taste of Jesus. We learn from him and find out what it is like to have our cup filled with His blessings. When we come to the Lord in prayer we are growing in compassion, understanding and willing to serve. True service is when we don't respond because of guilt or pressure but out of love and caring. We see the need and we act upon it.
Fill my cup, Lord
I hold it up to you with outstretched hands,
My heart parched and thirsty for your living water.
Fill my cup with your love, Lord.
Help me to feel your hands holding mine,
feel your arms around me, feel your love empowering me.
Fill me with quietness and encouragement and trust.
Help me to live for you when trials, difficulties, and storms hit me and those I love so deeply.
Help me not to give up when giving up seems easier.
Help me to trust you when I don't feel like trusting anymore.
When I know pain, fill my cup with prayer.
Teach me the secrets of service and surrender.
Fill my cup, Lord I lift it up to you.
Lift me up to do your will with love and sacrifice,
Never forgetting what you sacrificed for me Your Son, My Messiah, My Lord Jesus Christ.
Help me , Lord, to accept where I am now.
Help me to know I'm not stuck forever in my circumstances.
Help me remember that the windows do open and that fresh breezes do blow in and that living water forever flows and that those who ask receive.
I'm asking now, Lord.
I'm holding my cup in my hands, and I'm asking you to fill it ... with you.
Fill my cup with God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
And when my cup springs a leak, as earthen vessels are prone to do, Then I'll just have to ask again, Trusting in your love To fill me again.... and thanking you! Amen
