I am going to do more posts about tea and all the things I love about tea. I was posting so many things about my phamily and I just think I need to switch things up. I also was spending time at social media, and in the words of Teresa, another blogger, it is cutting and cruel. I could no longer stand the constant bullying and insults regarding political matters. As adults, people need to look at the bigger picture and stop bullying each other. My personal thoughts and I will not be visiting there or commenting any longer. My loss, no one else's as it seems more and more folks enjoy the drama and the back biting. I don't. I feel anyone talking about their faith needs to be able to back it up and I was being shunned more and more, Until we are no longer a free world, I will continue to post my Scripture whenever I feel like it. I am just stunned at the phoniness of so many and it really hurt my heart. I do appreciate the kind hearts that have followed me here and continue to. Your encouraging words always mean so much to me. These are the friendships I treasure. Anyone can brag about themselves but it is a true person who comments from their heart and is kind and well meaning.
Sometime I say too many words but I am a passionate person and I am honest and sincere. I have great faith and am a terrible Christian, because I am so imperfect. But I have a good heart and I try hard. I love kindness and dislike bullying. Love is so important in this world yet hate seems to rule. The very people who think change is needed and feel racism and political unrest is rampant in this world are often the very ones who love to stir the pot. Often people want their agenda and bully those that do not think like them. How sad the world would be if everyone was robotic and acted the same way. Honesty and ethics are good things. You won't hear me talk like this again at my blog. I will simply ignore any hatefulness. I will pray and I will enjoy posting about all the beautiful things tea !
Love and happiness are going to surround me.
Once you learn this you will live happier. My mother use to say, if someone took advantage of me, for instance, "with a friend like that, you will never need any enemies." I have taken that to heart throughout my life. It served me well like her words to me, pray and then pray harder.
This lovely tea mug arrived from the state of Virginia and lovely Cheryl. She sent a lovely tea exchange package.
Shortbread to enjoy with tea time and a cheery card,
A sweet book to enjoy while sipping my tea. Thank you Cheryl, you made my day and gave me a smile.
I want to thank Melissa in Alabama, Cheryl in Virginia for all the lovely gifts and Stephanie in Colorado for hosting the Tea Cup/ Tea Mug Exchange.
