The tea has steeped to perfection.
The cold winds blow loud with little cheer.
The outside chill is beating at the windows and doors.
Yet, my heart is warmed by the remembrance of God's many provisions like our home and the hospitable heat as I'm ready
to pause with my cup of tea.
Psalm 13:6 comes to mind,
I will sing to the Lord, because He has dealt bountifully with me.
Steeping in this peace filled moment, I pray for those who are out in the cold world lost without knowing the comfort of the Lord and His bountiful provisions. Lost time in prayer has caused my tea to become cold. It doesn't matter, immersed in gratitude and prayer was most satisfying.
My prayer for you and your personal pauses in Christ's uplifting presence is to be filled with rejoicing experiences. This season of cold winds and chilly days are best endured steeped in scripture, prayers and gratitude for they never turn cold.
