Yesterday I came across some amazing words of encouragement and this morning I just had to share them with you.  I wish I could tell you who penned this precious verse...  I only know the writing was timely and spoke to me about the amazing gift of friendship so many of us share with one another here in blogland.  It also reminded me that all of us, no matter where we may be in our lives, are facing some sort of challenge...

"Two women met for tea.
They talked about life~
Things they were working through
and things they were learning.
They showed each other grace
and gave each other courage.
Even though neither of them had all the answers,
they knew that God sure did.
So they laughed and cried
and shared their lives.
And in the end
when the cups were empty...
their hearts were full."
"I always thank my God for you
and for the gracious gifts
He has given you."
 I Corinthians 1:4 NLT 


Always happy to share my thoughts with you and to read yours in return.  I'm also glad so many of us are friends.  I've been busy this week with lots of work and activities.  I promise to catch up this weekend!  

Love to you...

Rebecca, I love reading your blog and your encouraging thoughts. I have been reading older posts of yours and I really do feel that we would be friends if we lived closer. We share the love the Lord, singing, painting and so many other creative endeavors and just trying to get through life. I hope you have a wonderful day my friend and enjoy a cup of tea!

That is beautiful! And definitely very true words. Friends DO enrich our lives. And spending time in prayer with a friend is a wonderful, uplifting time.

Have a great day.

Carol said...

Beautiful made me realize I need to be a ~better friend~ and give more of my time to my two close lady friends. Not having ~TIME To SPARE~ is no longer a valid excuse.

What a wonderful verse, and so very true. Each of us treasures our tea time friends...especially the ones who have stood with us (or sipped with us( through the sharing of life with it's joys, sorrows, challenges and deliverances. Thanks so much!

Kathy Ellen said...

Your sweet piece today about "Friendship Shared Over a Cup of Tea", is one of my most favorite things to do. So, today when as I sip my cup of sweet tea, I will close my eyes and think of you, just as though we were sitting together, enjoying a nice little chat with our favorite cups of tea!

Blessings To You, Dear Rebecca

Hello Rebecca
This is one of the nicest sentiments on friendship I've ever read. As I have come to know you from your blog, sharing tears and laughter over a cup of tea with you would be an honour.
