Tea and Friendship

Today's tea was a gift from a friend. She only had two teabags left, so she kept one and sent me the other one - what a sweet expression of friendship and sharing! Thank you! It is a truly delicious tea - one that I've never seen over here (stateside) before!

I have my tea pictured with another expression of friendship. A sweet little notebook which was given to me at Christmas. In it I write especially encouraging verses that I come across - I call it my "little book of love." Today I've written: "And when he brings out his own sheep, he goes before them; and the sheep follow him, for they know his voice." (John 10:4) I am deeply comforted to know that I am His, He is leading me, I am following Him, and I know His voice. 

My Disintegration Project is coming into week 12 now .... it has been showered with Maple tree blossoms .... which until now I had never stopped to notice. Projects like this could be part of a "slow art" movement - like the "slow food" or "slow money" movements - the idea being that patience and enjoying the moment are essential.

That tea is gorgeous isn't it Kimmie? Larry's papers are still looking very healthy! I've been out keeping them company today as my uncle (Larry's nephew) and I have been out in the garden fixing the shed that they're hanging on x
