A NEW YEAR'S BLESSING!







Hello Ladies:  Welcome to the Tea Cup Tuesday No. 198 and the last tea party for 2013!  We have gone through another year together, my friends.  I am so glad to say 2013 was a year of great joys and triumphs for me.  For that, I am eternally grateful to the Lord.  I know that many of you, have suffered unthinkable tragedy.  For some, personal health has been a great issue and others of you will be saying "good-bye" to your lovely homes. Having experienced great sorrow in years past, I know how hard that can be. I pray that as we enter 2014, our New Year will be filled with God's never ending blessings! Year end causes so many of us to reflect, perhaps  on changes we would like to make, people we would like to get to know better, or relationships that may need some repair.  I want to thank you for your kindness to me throughout the years.  We have gone through thick and thin together. I consider this blog a reflection of who I am and where I am at, during any given week throughout the year. I know you think of me as just another pretty tea cup.  I am grateful for each of you and if  I  could, would love to give each one of you a big "Happy New Year's" hug. Thank you for being such good friends, in spite of me.  





I have picked this one mustache tea cup from Germany today to share.  It reads: Think of Me!  Please know that I am also thinking and praying for each of you.  I pray that God grants you the desires of your heart as you seek Him with all your heart in 2014. 



As you can tell by my pictures, my Christmas is still up and I need to do something about that very soon, maybe today.  Sending love your way!  Martha

We are painting a room and will be setting up our new computer and hopefully I will be back blogging. Until then, comments is all I can do! I have so enjoyed your blog in 2013 and look forward to your inspirations for 2014!

Hi Martha,
I love your little "Think of Me" teacup today. I also have my Christmas decorations up and plan to leave them for another week or so. It is always sad to take things down for another year. I think of you often and hope all is well with you! Hoping 2014 is filled with blessings for you!

You always make me smile ! Ha, yes, I think of you as another pretty teacup, and also as a woman who seems to love life to the fullest. Your teacup celebrations seem to reflect your love of your family, your home, God, and us, the ladies who celebrate with you on Tuesdays. Thank-you Martha for hosting teacup Tuesdays and giving us a forum to share ours. Happy New Year to you & yours.
