Recently we celebrated our wedding anniversary. It's a beautiful time of reflection and happy memories. Even through trials and some sad times, we choose to remember the good times and celebrate our love story.
I don't use my wedding china very often, but I still think they are so elegant.
My sweet hubby sent this bouquet of flowers. Aren't they beautiful! I think he went down to the florist and picked them out himself.
Everything is perfect for an Anniversary celebration.
For over 30 years, I looked forward to the start of school.
Whenever school supplies started showing up at the stores, a little thrill of excitement quivered through my body.
New pens and pencils.
The smell of glue and the hunt for the right pair of paper scissors.
Crayons and colored pencils in every hue of color. With new ones appearing every so often.
Paper, paper, paper.
And of course a new bag to carry every little thing.
The school year marks the progression of time. We grow older and we leave behind the things of our youth. We learn and move onward towards being an adult. Making our way in this thing we call life.
Yet spiritually, we never grow old. Even with the passing of years we hover in un-aging youth. Totally opposite of natural life. If we study God's word, seeking to be more Christlike, we become more like a little child. Simple. Childlike. Trust. Inevitably, we grow younger instead of older. Revelation 22:13 states, "I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last." When we trust Jesus with child-like faith, we begin the journey of eternal childhood. It is my desire to lean on my heavenly Father with the faith of a child.
I'm so excited. You see my BFF is coming for a quick visit. Only for a couple of days, but it will be filled with fun, conversation and TEA! I love my red china. It makes for such a festive table any time of the year.
Is there no better way to enjoy the companionship of a friend than over tea?
There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea. ~Henry James
The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of His hands ~ Psalm 19:1
