A GIVE AWAY AND A GOOD BYE TO A DEAR FRIEND FOR NOW!




Hello Ladies and welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 254!    First I want to remind you, this is the last week you can sign up for the tea cup give away.  I will announce the winner next week.  Remember all you have to do is be a follower and leave a comment.  The cup is this pretty Limoges Tea Cup ready to be loved and looking for a new home. 




This first tea cup is a Paragon.  They are one of my favorite cups as well.  This one has beautiful Mums all over.  



Second, it is with a sad heart that I announce that Terri will not longer be joining us for Tea Cup Tuesday.  Although my heart is sadden by the news, I know that her priorities are right. She must continue to heal and as well as help her dear son do the same.  Terri is an amazing Mother and friend.  My life has been forever changed because I know her.  She promises to keep me updated and I will do the same for you.  Terri helped me when everything in my life seem so dark and she brought into the light and His joy!   I will forever be grateful to her for that gift.  Please stop and give Terri your blessings as she begins a new journey.  This will be her last post from her from for a while. 



Terri  and I met about 5 years ago and as I have said many times before,  we have shared the good, bad and ugly together during this time.  This friendship for us all started with our love of Tea Cups.  Today in honor of my friend I am sharing a  tea cup she gave me that I treasure so.  It is a Paragon.  This cup is dainty and beautiful just like my friend.




Many of you know she is a amazing artist.  Terri has sent me things that I leave up all year to enjoy the beauty of each piece.  It also helps me to remember  to pray for her when I see them.   This is just one of the latest items I have been blessed to receive.  


1 Thessalonians 5:17 Pray without ceasing. 18 In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
While I am taking about praying, I want to thank you for the privilege of allowing me to pray for you every night this past week.  I know that some prayers have already been answered.  I did not visit like I usually do each week, because I was a part of that prayer group.  The pray requests has been left with the Ladies of the Prayer Group.  They will pray until, they have heard you have received your answer.  I am honored that you shared them with me.  Wishing you a wonderful week.  Blessings, Martha

What a loving post, Martha. Terri's teacup is so beautiful and I'm glad the two of you became friends and started another tea party. The more, the merrier. I have already visited Terri and wished her well. She will be missed, truly. Would love to win your beautiful Limoges teacup! Have a lovely day, my friend.

Blessings,
Sandi

Hello Martha
I always enjoy the way you display the teacups on your posts, allowing each to be a special item shared.
Terri will be missed but life outside the blogging world must take priority and she will continue to be in our prayers.

Hi Martha,
I will continuer my prayers for Terri and her son, and certainly understand her priorities.
Your teacups are lovely and I love the gifted one from Terri. Thank you for being a faithful hostess and friend.

Hi Martha!
Thank you so much for stopping by my "Let's Talk Vintage" link party!

Your teacups are ALWAYS gorgeous and you display them so nicely.

Denise said...

Love the story of your friendship!

Karen said...

Hi Martha,
I am so sorry that I am late to link up this week. I didn't know that you had posted last night. What a pretty limoges teacup and the Paragon with the Mums really is beautiful. Your Paragon teacup gift from Terri is so lovely. I will miss visiting Terri's blog and hope and pray that she and her son continue to improve. Thank you for praying for me. Happy Tea Day Sweet and Dear Friend! karen

Joy said...

I'm a follower, though I don't always comment. I enjoy your blog and would love to be entered for the lovely teacup. Prayers for Terri and her son.

Anne Payne said...

Martha, I haven't been by in ages, and for that I am so sorry. My book blogging became all consuming for a while and I just let all my other interests wane. Being back here today reminds me how much I enjoyed visiting your blog and seeing all your beautiful tea cups and settings. I am hoping this year will be more balanced. I am sad to hear Terri will be leaving but I do understand that life happens, and sometimes we have to pull back from commitments. I will pray for her. Thanks for sharing such lovely words about her today.

Love this week's teacups--Paragon is one of my favourite companies!

the woolly dog said...

Martha, thank you but please don't include me in the draw, your beautiful set will find its rightful home. I just wanted to support you, your kindness and understanding of Terri can only help her. Take care. x

Bernideen said...

That is a lovely tribute to Teri and I know it will mean a lot to her. I enjoyed your wonderful teacups but also don't need to be in the drawing! I love it when the winner is someone who doesn't have many and I do!

Deborah Montgomery said...

What a nice tribute to your dear friend Terri. I love the gift she made you. So pretty and charming.

organicgardendreams said...

Dear Martha, thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a comment!
I knew yours already from some other afternoon tea blog parties and always enjoy seeing your pretty tea cups.
I would be happy if you would include me in the drawing for the Limoges tea cup, it is such a dainty lovely cup! Warm regards,
Christina
