My life verses are Philippians 4:6-7
"Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, shall guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus."

Today I need that reminder! I spent way too much time last night fretting over this blog. I really haven't figured out how to do this yet, and yesterday's blog looked horrible. I just fretted and fretted over it and even spent this morning bummed out. That is ridiculous! What if I never learn how to do it? That's okay! God may have something completely different in mind for me. Well, I know He has many things for me. I have a husband, 2 daughters, a son, and 12 grandkids to care for. And believe me, that's a ministry! I finally came to the conclusion that I am not going to let this rule my life. Just because everyone else that I know can do this easily doesn't mean that I can. (I guess I exaggerated a little bit--not everyone else--but my 14 year old granddaughter can.) If I can do it, I will. If I can't, I won't, and that's that!

Anyway, I bought this lovely tray for $2.oo at a thrift store in Dayton, Tennessee, last weekend when we were on our trip. My daughter did a little research and found that it is a paint by number. How cute is that? The tea cup came from a garage sale and the tea set from another thrift store. I think I paid a dollar for the tea cup and about $6.00 for the tea set.

My heart is to teach my granddaughters through the monthly tea parties how to be ladies, how to use good etiquette, how to show true friendship, and many other virtues that behoove godly young women. The cute tray will be a good addition to our stash of tea party supplies.

Have a blessed week!

I feel the same way about my blog. It seems like everyone else knows more about it than I do! (My husband has to help me:)
But I do love to share stories and meet people so I persist.

Amelia, you make me happy! Not because you have a hard time with blogging, but because I am not in the boat alone. I have a compatriot! Lord bless you. I think your blog is great.

I am so glad I found this blog! I love it. I found a beautiful tray similar to this one at an antique and flea market. Alas it was marked over 30.00 and I wouldn't pay that for it. You really found a bargain.

I wanted to know if you had a suggestion on how to teach manners and Christian behavior to a boy grandchild? I'm sure he wouldn't be interested in a tea party. ;) But I'd love to find some king of activity that would guide him, and share experiences he will remember when I'm gone.

That is a verse I have hung in my hallway. It has meant a lot to me over the years and is so practical and helpful. By the way, I love the white teapot, creamer and pitcher--I am loving white dish thingys lately!!
