Time for Tea?
I was reading my bible this morning (okay, bibles.. I like to read several translations at a time), when my daughter brought me "pretend tea".
She noticed I did not have my usual cup of coffee and so, surely I needed a cup of hot tasty tea. I am so thankful to have such a sweet, thoughtful daughter. The Lord really blesses me through her. (She's going to be eight in a few days! I can't believe it!)
She reminds me to take joy in the small things. She reminds me of myself.... many years ago. She softly sings the verses she's memorized. She dances down the grocery store aisles. She opens her bible and slowly sounds out the words. It takes a while, but she works at understanding it.
She brings me joy, and, through her, I'm reminded of what it is to be a daughter of the Most High God.
