Tea Time Tuesday - A Generous Spirit

I pray that within me will grow a more generous spirit. 2 Corinthians 8:7 says, "But just as you excel in everything-in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in complete earnestness and in your love for us-see that you also excel in this grace of giving." God doesn't need our things. But he gives us creativity and talent, and designed us to be about the business of doing things for Him. What gifts or resources has God blessed me (you) with? How can I (you) make use of something of myself (yourself) to give back to God? Generosity is one character trait I have chosen to work on this year. To read more about my "one word," click here.

 I'd love to share a cup of tea with you, and some lively conversation. Today's tea is "Florence," a chocolate hazelnut tea from Harney and Sons. Harney and Sons offer over 200 varieties of fine tea. "Florence" is one of my favorites; another favorite is "Vanilla Comoro," a decaffeinated black tea; and another, "Yin Hao Jasmine."

 I've also saved you a slice of Cranberry Poppyseed Pound Cake.

 Tea, and generosi-tea...

As a candle provides light, so Jesus is the light of the world.

It's a privilege to link to Tea Time Tuesday, hosted by the most gracious Sandi of Rose Chintz Cottage. Be sure to visit our hostess Sandi and her participants, and listen up!

There's a very special Tea Time Tuesday coming up NEXT week. It's the second anniversary of Tea Time Tuesday and Sandi's celebrating by inviting us all to join her for Rose Week (she adores roses) for Tea Time Tuesday.

See you there!
Thanks for visiting!
