The lines have fallen to me in pleasant places; Indeed, my heritage is beautiful to me. ~ Psalm 16:6 nasb

Tea Talk -- Content With What You Have


Welcome to my home for Ruth's Tea Talk!
Sit and share a cup of tea with me as we encourage each other in the Lord.
To participate, click on Ruth's button above.


I'm having...a glass of iced tea once again.  It's just a little warmer and nicer out, and this may be my last glass of iced tea for a while.  I'm so glad I had lemons in the fridge!  My glass is a garage-sale find for 20 cents, and it feels nice in my grip.  I took this photo a week or so ago, right after I canned a small batch of jalapeƱos and homemade salsa.


I'm feeling...good after feeling a little "icky" last week.  I guess hormonal changes are normal at this stage of life!

On my mind...is helping Danny get his driver's license.  I'm getting worn down accompanying him to school three days a week.  At least I get concentrated time with Thomas (he goes with me) while he gets his schoolwork done, plus I have a little time while waiting, so I can read or work on my schedule.  Here's a shot from last week's college time.  What fun to be sitting with Thomas and see Lori's son Bryan walk by.  We had a great time chatting together before he had to go to class.


I leave you with...a quote taken from the book, Organized Simplicity, that you see in the above photo.  I have much to ponder about further simplifying my life!

We don't need to increase our goods
nearly as much as we need to scale down our wants.
Not wanting something is as good as possessing it.
Donald Horban

And a "corresponding" quote from my favorite book:

Make sure that your character is free from the love of money,
being content with what you have; for He Himself has said,
"I will never desert you, nor will I ever forsake you."
Hebrews 13:5 NASB
