As I Do Tea



                   
Proverb 17:22

As I bring out the kettle and fill it to the brim, joy begins to seep in. 

As I wait for the water to boil,
I pray about what’s on my heart
today. 

As I gather the teapot, the cup, spoon,
honey, and tea; 
I lay down a memorized
scripture or two or three.

As I pour the steaming water over
the fragrant tea, 
I breathe in the comforting delight.

      As I wait for the tea to fully steep,
                       I heap praises
                       at Jesus’s feet. 



Psalm 146:1 

As the brew comes to perfection, 
I pour out thanks to the One who 
who transformed me 
from bitterness to kindness.

As I pause over my teacup,
I invite the Redeemer
to join me at my tea. 

As I sip the sweet tea,
I’m reminded that
I’m never alone,
Jesus Christ
is always
near
me. 

Psalm 119:76

                 






May your tea time preparations 

be filled with joy, comfort, 
and a sweet time in
Christ's uplifting presence. 



Uplifting blessings,
Carolyn

I rarely pour a cup of tea without thinking of you. Such a lovely post, my friend.
