Rest and Respite

When spring slips into summer and your life shifts into action mode, consider taking time to REST --- seeking escape in nature, in the simplicity of your garden with a cuppa tea can bring reprieve. There, be embraced in God's love and find respite for your soul.


  1. Excellent advice! I feel rested just reading this and looking at the pretty tea tray.

  2. Now this would have been a nice photo for the ATAA photo contest. Very nice!

    I love your blog. It's like a feast for the eyes. There is always something pretty to see or something interesting to read...or both!

  4. Another pretty picture, and lovely words!


  5. Just beautiful! I love tea cups~my mother-in-law started giving me a few from the family and her mother gave me a few too. I love that all the ones I have have meaning. I also love herbal tea!
    I live less than 10 miles from Celestial Seasonings and just recently went to the store they have there. Oh My! It is such a fun place with all kinds of tea cups and tea pots and little tea accesories! I know where I will be getting the women in my family gifts for Christmas:)

  8. I like these thoughts. I tend to think of summer as the busy season, but it's so important to rest, too!

  9. How lovely!
    Embroidered flour sack towels have always been a favorite thing of mine, as well as beautiful china.
    You always make me feel so soothed.
    Thank you!
