Tea Talk for Thursday, January 19



1. I'm having...I'm having coffee with a new creamer, Cafe Mocha by CoffeeMate, in my teacup from my first set of Corelle.  I thought it was named Spice of Life but I found out it is Indian Summer. Oops!



2. I'm feeling....in a positive frame of mind.
3. On my mind.... a post about legacy that I want to do soon.  My great grandfather left a spiritual legacy.  I'm wondering how our family is carrying it forward.
4. A quotation to encourage:

" Let the wife make the husband glad to come home, and let him make her sorry to see him leave." Martin Luther

I saw this on Shan's blog, Family Brings Joy, and knew I wanted to share it with you.  I never knew Martin Luther said anything about marriage before.  I think he is certainly right on with his thought.  If wives worked at making home an inviting place, and husbands worked on being pleasant to their wives while they were home, I think it would cut down on the divorce rate! 

Ruth at Celebrate Friendship is the hostess of Tea Talk.  Stop by her blog for some tea and encouragement.

Hi, Jerralea! Love that quote, too. I've never heard it before. It certainly is true, and reflects Scripture in that we're supposed to be putting others' needs before our own.

And, how wonderful that your great-grandfather left a spiritual legacy for your family. Your heritage is blessed!

Hello Jerralea. What a pretty name. My first visit here. I am over from Ruth's who is so inspiring and has led me to many fine blogs such as yours. I love genealogy and spend lots of time with it. Blessings

Hi Jerralea~ Good family thoughts! I grew up (sort of-it was my aunts) with that Corelle pattern. Nice to see it again.

I did not know,either, that Martin Luther wrote on marriage...but I sure do LOVE this quote from him; thank you!
