Of course, if you're reading a book written in 1813 about life in England you need to be drinking coffee out of a transferware castle mug, right? This one features Ruthin Castle in 1792, and is made by Johnson Brothers.
You know, if you think about it, pride and prejudice are the cause of so many problems in this world. In my own life I find that when I realize I have been proud about something and then try and change it, I get proud of how humble I have become! It's always a struggle.
All of you, clothe yourselves with humility
toward one another, because,
God opposes the proud
but gives grace to the humble.
Humble yourselves, therefore,
under God's mighty hand,
that he may lift you up in due time.
1 Peter 5:5-6
