WISE MEN STILL SEEK HIM! TEA CUP TUESDAY NO. 145
'He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds' Psalm 147:3
Our Tea Cup Tuesday Community, sadly once again, must mourn together for an unthinkable loss. The pain seems almost unbearable, and I am across the Nation. Our families gathered this weekend to celebrate the 16th birthday of my beautiful niece, Rachel. All the small children were running in between the adults and the grown children were enjoying the fellowship of friends and family. As adults, we were so aware that for many, this normal activity would never be the same again for the families in that small community.
I do know we serve a great God, who will comfort those who mourn; who sees the beginning and the end; who knows "Why?" Every family in one way or another is touched by mental illness. This only makes us more aware of how much we need to help individuals and families who are in need of our understanding, not judgement. More than anything our Nation needs to turn its eyes back to God. Many of you have already shared your hearts about what happen, I imagine that many more of you will share your heart this week. Remember that Jesus is our "Prince of Peace," and nothing is too difficult for Him.
I am sharing this special cup this week that expresses my wish for all of us, "Merry Christmas."
Of course a Christmas Tea would not be the same without the traditional "Spode" Christmas cup.
Sorry about missing last week and the somber tone of this post. I have been a "party animal" lately and on the other, I just had to share my feelings with you. Here is Mr. Linky for this week. Special thank you to Terri, who is always so faithful.
Sharing some Christmas Tree pictures today. I have been lucky in that last year's Christmas Tree appeared in a magazine, hoping for the same for this year's tree. Sending extra hugs to all of you this week. Love, Martha
