This week has been very busy with a grand baby boy named Elijah. Not much time to sit and drink tea. It has been "tea on the go!" So I decided to share some pictures of my sunflowers with you today and a teacup that reminds me of Fall. I know it isn't Fall yet, but the evenings and mornings are starting to get that "feel" to them...you know, that crispness in the air that brings to mind thoughts of falling leaves in autumn colors, pumpkins and cornstalks.
I acquired this cup a few months ago and thought it was unique. The pattern is interesting and different, but very difficult to capture properly with a camera.
If I were a flower I think I would want to be a sunflower because they look up. Their big bright faces follow the sun as it moves across the sky. It reminds me of how we should look up and follow the Son where ever He leads.
My teacup is empty today, but my life is full of blessings.
"I am the light of the world,
He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness,
but have the light of life."
Yes, I'd like to be a "Son" flower!
And have the light of life.
I didn't plant the sunflowers this year, they just came up as a surprise from seeds that fell in the soil last year. Isn't that how a lot of our blessings are? Seeds are planted in the soil of our lives and in their own time they sprout into beautiful flowers. God says we reap what we sow. When we sow good seeds of kindness and love, they come up later in the most surprising places. I wish every day I would remember to ask myself the question, "What am I sowing today?"
"Grow flowers of gratitude in the soil of prayer. "
And below is a picture of the reason I had "tea on the go" this week.
Have a wonderful tea time!
