A Cuppa Tea in My Hands

Cold morning. Still dark outside as the seasons change.

Warm Lyons tea. Hand painted cute raccoon mug.

As the warmth fills my hands, I relax. I feel better.

I enjoy holding the heat as much as drinking it.

I breathe deeply. Aahhh….

The restorative power of a cuppa tea in my hands.

Blessings on your day, and may you drink much good tea,


Postscript….those of you who prefer coffee, insert preferred word above. 🙂

Infusion of the Life Force

My husband and I used to act out a scene together from the play “To Gillian on Her 37th Birthday” that said:  “I need an infusion of ze life force!”  For some reason, we always liked that part and laughed a little too much, and still quote it today at random moments.  Usually when we’re tired and exhausted.  Well, I feel that way this morning; definitely needing a big life force infusion, pronto.  Of course, I have the caffeine from my morning tea already in full swing, but more life force is definitely needed.

I need the Source of life, the One who made me, who knows me, who loves me unconditionally.  Jesus.  He said, “I am the bread of life.  He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty….The Spirit gives life.”  (John 6:35, 63a)

As Sheryl Crow sings in her song, “The Light in Your Eyes”:

You gotta talk to the One who made you
Talk to the One who understands
Talk to the One who gave you all the light in your eyes
All the light in your eyes                                                  (c2004 Sheryl Crow)

Right about now I could make a lame reference to “May the Force be with you,” but I will refrain.  Oh wait, I already said it.  🙂  Have a wonderful, blessed, God-filled day.  Slainte, Lisa
