Sharing More than Peaches

With an arm load of fresh peaches a neighbor shared  her treasures with me.

The unexpected delight inspired me to make my simply easy peach cobbler. Little did I know the peach cobble was going to be shared beyond my family.

A sorrowful friend stopped by as the bubbling cobbler was pulled from the oven. She was having a real pity party and wanted me to join her. However, with a bowl of peach cobbler and over a teacup, we blow out her pity party candle with prayers and scriptures. She went home full of renewed strength,  peach cobbler, and a doused candle.

We never know what God has planned when one friend shares what they have and we make something from their gift to share with another in need. That's TeaCup living in action.

Remember the meaning of TeaCup:
T = giving time to others
e = encouragement to others
a = acceptance of others
in
C = Christ's
u = uplifting
p = presence.

Simple Peach Cobbler

Sharing a bite of something yummy always tastes sweeter with a friend.
May the Lord bring us together again for a tasty time of fellowship once more.

It's an easy and quick cobbler to make. Hopefully, we'll be able to get together soon.

Oo-oo-oo! Sounds yummy, and peach is my favorite cobbler. It's just like you to not only be there for your friend, but to encourage her over your delicious peach cobbler. Serve on, my friend!

Yes, I remember you love peaches. You introduced me to Chick-fil-a's peach shake. Awesome!
Miss you.

I've had the recipe for over 40 years and it hasn't failed me yet. Step-by-step pictures in a recipe's process brings confidence to one willing to try a new dish. Making life easier is my pleasure, especially with pictures.
