Rose Tea Time

Life is busy these days!  I haven't blogged in a month and life just keeps moving by, faster and faster, like they always say.  Miss E and I finally were able to have a tea party again last week, and although the weather was rather hot we enjoyed our iced sun tea in our pretty rose tea cups, along with some banana bread.

I have included a quote our pastor used in a sermon recently, I really appreciated it and desire this to be true of me.  Mercy triumphs over judgement.  James 2:13

When we are given our rewards, I would prefer to be found to have erred on the side of grace rather than judgment;

to have loved too much rather than too little;
to have forgiven the underserving rather than refused forgiveness to one who deserved it;

to have fed a parasite rather than to have neglected one who was truly hungry;
to have been taken advantage of rather than to have taken advantage;

to have believed too much in my brothers rather than too little;
having been wrong on the side of too much trust than too much cynicism;
to have believed the best and been wrong, than to have believed the worst and been right.

  3. What a lovely tea tray, Carmen! Yum! I haven't had banana bread in a while now you have me craving some. I love the quote from your pastor's sermon.
