Tea Talk - 04.26.12

1.  I'm having my usual Irish Breakfast Tea in another teacup that I found at the antique mall in Monticello, Arkansas.  (I found FIVE different teacups that day.)  I love the colors in this cup and saucer.

2. I'm feeling happy and content. I am blessed!

3. On my mind .... thoughts of life and eternity.  This week, for some reason, I have been pondering the meaning of life and the realization that life is a proving ground for eternity.  What choices we make here have eternal consequences.

4.  A quotation to encourage:

When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, 'I used everything you gave me'.
Erma Bombeck

I love this!  I think God would be pleased if we all use the talents He's given us.  Sometimes it takes us a lifetime to discover what they are ....but as long as you are alive, He has something for you to do!

Tea Talk is a meme hosted by Ruth at Celebrate Friendship.

Hi, Jerralea! I'm back visiting Tea Talk posts after a bit of a blogging break. That'a a great quote from Erma; to be used up for Christ is a great ideal to aspire to.

I love your "new" teacup; and, Irish breakfast is my favorite! (I would *love* to go the antique mall with you--it sounds heavenly!!

Have a great day!
