Tea and Thee

Judy over at Pages of My Heart wrote this poem. It is very fitting for my blog as it shares its name so I thought I would share it with you. I love it.

Tea and Thee

I sit here early in the morning
slowly sipping my cup of tea;
reflecting on the blessing
of talking with thee.

I come before you each day
knowing I won't be denied.
Asking for strength and comfort,
grateful you always provide.

I feel joy and contentment
each moment that we share.
You give me strength each day
as I lay before you every care.

Your Holy Word is my daily bread.
I love precious moments with thee.
Thankful we can meet together
while I'm sipping my cup of tea.

Beth, thanks so much for sharing my poem. I'm glad you liked it. I wrote it for a ladies retreat to go along with tea cups the speaker was going to give out. She's talking about contentment.

Oh gosh Brooke took the words right out my mouth. That poem is precious and I was also admiring your tea tray and service!
