I'm having: Earl Grey tea in a dainty cup and saucer. It is blue and white china made in Germany and very pretty. If you look closely though, there is a small chip in the rim and when the cup is empty, there are stains in the cracks from age and use.
The tea is warm and sweet. It "hits the spot" and the cup reminds me of my life...
I'm feeling: Tired.
On my mind: The weight of other people's poor choices. We are not islands unto ourselves. Everything we do affects someone else, everything. Sometimes the choices I see others make GRIEVES me to no end...including some of the choices I make.
Jesus never made his own choices. He never went his own way, only doing what the Father told him to do.
A quote to share:
Father, I know that all my life
Is portioned out for me,
And the changes that are sure to come
I do not fear to see;
I ask Thee for a present mind,
Intent on pleasing Thee.
I would not have the restless will
That hurries to and fro,
Seeking for some great thing to do
Or secret thing to know;
I would be treated as a child
And guided where I go.
Wherever in the world I am,
In whatsoever estate,
I have a fellowship with hearts
To keep and cultivate .
~Anna Waring, 1850~
