Arizona Bloggers tea





Oh what a wonderful group of ladies.
What a privilege to hear the beauty of voices chattering and sharing minds that flow with such creativity.
I forgot my camera!
Laughter accentuated the meal. A nice gift exchange (the last of it's kind) was an adventure seeing the things that were so unique. 
The other day I had thought about spring and had glanced at purses when I was out getting a gift for Dash to give at the party last night.
I passed them by with a grateful heart for what I had.
So funny the package I first had in hand just did not feel right somehow so I traded for a box that had wonderful vineyard type paper on it. In it ....
Yep!
A new purse. Now the funny thing is Saturday morning I put on some glue on nails and gave myself a pedicure too. That bright pink...That is the color that I painted my nails. It was the first time I think in over a year that I used that color. It matched a pink in my spring colored skirt. Same color as the bag!
This is the bag I purchased last fall. It is leather (my first leather bag) so it will be cleaned with some saddle soap before I store it. That bag is like a suitcase. Served well flying to Florida but it has gotten heavy on my shoulder. They have a way of filling up however big they are.
I tried the new bag, it is so spring like but I think it is supposed to be for a travel case. It has to be held by hand or on my arm so it is iffy if I'll keep it for daily use.

Cool though how I received what I had desired a new purse.
All I have need of. :)

So visiting with so many wonderful new ladies opens up a whole new school yard of knowledge and friendships. It was so wonderful to take it all in. 

Both of the children had sleepovers last night .
It was the first time in YEARS that we were alone just the two of us at home. 
We went to pai wei for fresh stir fry and then went to the Wal-mart and purchased an old movie called "seven pounds" with Will Smith, It was so nice to cuddle up on the sofa and just watch a movie in quiet, no interruption or questions. Nor did we even have to pause it for anyone. I know it sounds simple but it is the simple things in which we find delight. It is just our way.
It was wonderful to have a date together at home in the peace and quiet of home.
All a day of play for me.
I am so rested.

Hi Donetta Sweetie...
It was so wonderful to see you again yesterday, and you touched my heart many times over. I thank you for that. We are kindred spirits.

I am so tickled that you and DH were able to have a date last night and have some quality time together. I believe that every marriage needs that. I am like you, a movie at home and a little dinner is perfect.

I have so many purses sweetie. I am always donating them away. I am going to have to go through them and bring you a few. Maybe one day we can meet for lunch, just the two of us. Do a little thrift store shopping or something.

Have a beautiful week sweetie. Please stay in touch. Love ya, Sherry

Glad you enjoyed the tea.

Older women likewise teach the younger women...

• how to love their husbands
• how to love their children
• how to be self-controlled
• how to be pure
• how to be keepers at home
• how to be kind and submissive (not subservient) to their own husbands. (See Titus 2:3-5)

'A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ
That a man should have to seek Him first to find her.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not shouting 'I'm clean living,'
I'm whispering 'I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.

When I say.. 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect,
My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain...
I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou,
I'm just a simple sinner Who received God's good grace, somehow!

Words have power. Here are a few of my favorite sayings.

  • A warm cup of tea is like a cuddle with a friend.
  • The North American Indians have a more eloquent word for ‘friend’ than we do in English. In their language, the word for friend literally means, “the one who carries my sorrows on his back.”
  • Return with Honor
  • The sage anticipates things that are difficult while they are easy, and does things that would become great while they are small. All difficult things in the world are sure to arise from a previous state in which they were easy, and all great things from one in which they were small. Therefore the sage, while he never does what is great, is able on that account to accomplish the greatest things."
  • "HOME IS WHERE YOUR STORY BEGINS"
  • “Live so that when your children hear these words they think of you… Fairness Caring Integrity Honesty Love Trust.”
  • "O Lord help my words to be gracious and tender today, for tomarrow I may have to eat them."
  • "No man has ever been shot while doing the dishes"

Zephaniah 3:17 NLT
"For the LORD your God has arrived to live among you. He is a mighty savior. He will rejoice over you with great gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will exult over you by singing a happy song."
