I'm having...Caribou Blend coffee in my white everyday mug.
I'm feeling... Pressed for time. Asking God for help to just pace myself evenly with no wasted minutes the next 5 hours...I have a gathering here tomorrow but I leave the house at 2pm today, and won't be back until almost midnight, so I have to finish everything now.
On my mind... Mary and Martha. Though Martha's tasks were a reality, Jesus said that Mary chose the better thing to focus on...Him. I have many tasks, but my goal is warm and cozy fellowship for my guests, not "entertaining" my guests. There is a vast difference, and the tasks involved with hosting events -- especially in a time crunch like the one I'm in -- can cause a hostess to lose sight of the goal: that the name of Jesus would be lifted up, and that God would be pleased.
My theme verse for December:
“'Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all the people; for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. This will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.'
And suddenly there appeared with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying, 'Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace among men with whom He is pleased.'” (Luke 2:10-14)
My silly dog, who always likes to come to Tea Talk.
Leave a note...I love to hear from you!
