Tea and Scones for Teens

Rebecca and her friends learned how to have a proper tea at church the other day.

It was so lovely!

044The girls had to learn everything from setting the tables to making the food.

Here up above they are learning how to make scones :)



They had to learn how to make proper tea sandwiches too.

040How to set a serving plate full of cookies…

042…then place them on the serving holders…

037…how to set the table…

048…finally how to properly serve and drink the tea.

047Such a lovely group of girls! They did an amazing job too!!

I know in today’s society this might not sound very important.Kids are more interested in what stars are wearing and dating than proper manners.  Thank goodness a few of us still feel this is a right of passage and a gift to know how to be a proper hostess! Thank you Ms Linda for taking the time to teach the girls  etiquette! These are going to be some amazing Proverbs women taught by some lovely Titus wives!!

036Terrific Teens Loving the Lord together at tea!


Someone Lost Her Tooth

069My little angel lost her front tooth!!

Look at those incredible nails her sister painted for her to celebrate!!

She is so excited that she has finally lost a front tooth like so many of her friends already have, not to mention that she got a whole dollar for that shiny little chunk of calcium!!

I know I should be joyous with her but honestly it makes me a little sad.

Yes I am happy she is getting her “big girl teeth”  and that she is growing into such a beautiful Godly young lady. It is just that I know, as she ages, no matter how hard I try, she will be loosing a little bit more of her innocent love of life to the world. God has such wonderful plans for her I am sure. She has been a blessing to me from the day she was conceived and I am grateful that the Lord had given her to me to keep that innocence in my heart as she grows! To see the world through the eyes of a child, to see more good than bad, to be present in the moment not worrying about the future….childhood…something that now, is to fleeting, when it should be cherished, and held on to, for as long as possible.

Congratulations baby girl on your most recent step into a bigger world!!

God will be holding your hand the entire way…

and I will be there holding your other.

From a Friend…

I read this today and have nothing to add except amazement of how much He prayed for us and the disciples. In awe and captivated by His love for us.


After saying all these things, Jesus looked up to heaven and said, “Father, the hour has come. Glorify your Son so he can give glory back to you. For you have given him authority over everyone. He gives eternal life to each one you have given him. And this is the way to have eternal life—to know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, the one you sent to earth. I brought glory to you here on earth by completing the work you gave me to do. Now, Father, bring me into the glory we shared before the world began. “I have revealed you to the ones you gave me from this world. They were always yours. You gave them to me, and they have kept your word. Now they know that everything I have is a gift from you, for I have passed on to them the message you gave me. They accepted it and know that I came from you, and they believe you sent me. “My prayer is not for the world, but for those you have given me, because they belong to you. All who are mine belong to you, and you have given them to me, so they bring me glory. Now I am departing from the world; they are staying in this world, but I am coming to you. Holy Father, you have given me your name; now protect them by the power of your name so that they will be united just as we are. During my time here, I protected them by the power of the name you gave me. I guarded them so that not one was lost, except the one headed for destruction, as the Scriptures foretold. “Now I am coming to you. I told them many things while I was with them in this world so they would be filled with my joy. I have given them your word. And the world hates them because they do not belong to the world, just as I do not belong to the world. I’m not asking you to take them out of the world, but to keep them safe from the evil one. They do not belong to this world any more than I do. Make them holy by your truth; teach them your word, which is truth. Just as you sent me into the world, I am sending them into the world. And I give myself as a holy sacrifice for them so they can be made holy by your truth. “I am praying not only for these disciples but also for all who will ever believe in me through their message. I pray that they will all be one, just as you and I are one—as you are in me, Father, and I am in you. And may they be in us so that the world will believe you sent me. “I have given them the glory you gave me, so they may be one as we are one. I am in them and you are in me. May they experience such perfect unity that the world will know that you sent me and that you love them as much as you love me. Father, I want these whom you have given me to be with me where I am. Then they can see all the glory you gave me because you loved me even before the world began! “O righteous Father, the world doesn’t know you, but I do; and these disciples know you sent me. I have revealed you to them, and I will continue to do so. Then your love for me will be in them, and I will be in them.” (‭John‬ ‭17‬:‭1-26‬ NLT)


Morning Friend!

Good-Morning-Coffee-PinkToday is: Wednesday February 18


Outside is: FOGGY!!! I love it!! It has been in the 80’s lately and at least now it looks like February!!


I can smell:My diffuser puffing out Thieves to try and keep this family healthy!! So the cinnamon smell of the Thieves and my morning coffee…yummy!!


In the oven for dinner: We are having Crockpot Chicken!! I just filled the Crockpot with frozen chicken and sweet and sour sauce! I will add some pineapple later when I start the rice that I will put the chicken on :)


What I have been thinking about:  I am having a Young Living Class here at my home on Friday and I am feeling okay about it right at the moment, but I do have a tendency to stress on things like this. I want to be sure I can answer questions for people. I have a tendency to get nervous and then my brain goes into fog mode and I cant always pull up the information that I know is there!!! Just like school, tests always freaked me out even when I knew the answers. I am sure I will do fine though :)


The project I am working on: Still doing my practicum for my Raindrop Therapy. Love giving the blessings of the raindrops!! Next month I will start teaching raindrop and vitaflex…if people want to learn.


Mood today: I am pleasantly mellow at the moment. I still have that feeling that God is at work in something and I am going to be needed in it very soon, so my soul is preparing.


What I am reading: an interesting book about the “colors” of people. You can teach them according to their color group for better understanding. Some are more about helping others, so that is how you get them interested in a project. I read that others are about helping themselves make money, that was not a surprise, and how you need to come to them on a totally different level…interesting theory.

School Stuff: We are working on landforms right now. I am getting ready to build a volcano with the girls. This should be interesting!!


Picture to share: 073

It was my friend Jenny’s birthday yesterday and I made her this crazy amazing breakfast at MOPS!! We had Turkey rolls, yogurt with granola, fruit, egg and potato casserole and a cinnamon roll birthday “cake” complete with candle!! Rebecca even helped out making little bags of cotton candy for each of the girls!! (excuse my prayer notebook under my plate and keys on the table)


Hope your day is blessed friend!!
