Helen Keller said....
"No pessimist ever discovered the secrets of the stars,
or sailed to an unchartered land,
or opened a new heaven to the human spirit."
My mother's silver collectibles have become gray and dull!
But I'm the retiree!! I'm ready to shine in this year of 2016
This ~ I shall do. I shall be an optimist
I shall open my eyes unto God's
great, splendid and multiplied "heavenly moments"...
as he has afforded a new heaven to the human spirit.
I shall seek his will and his face in daily prayer!
I will live in faith and optimism! Not hurriedly....but in beauty. In grace. In love. And in beauty.
I ran across a magazine called Victorian Tea Time..... and ahhhh.... the lovely tea rooms in the USA and abroad. Oh to sit and reflect and to be serene in drinking a cuppa tea or coffee.
I've begun to polish my silver..... it's quite OCD to get a beautiful shine.
My 15-month old grandson was in ICU pediatric care in December 2015...
I'm prayerful for a good, healthy life for this little rascal!!!
All of my grandchildren are MY NEW HEAVEN.... a joy to my spirit.
I'd give my life in a second for my children and grands and the greats that will come!
I hope blogging friends ~ tea buddies ~ and quilting friends ~
will indeed find new bits of heaven in 2016!

I'm wishing a good and Godly morning to my fellow Tea Sippers.
I'm setting up new files.... re-arranging a bit.
I even request, gather and receive and put up
Wall Calendars (sometimes an ancient thing in the IPhone age).
I'm putting away the Xmas tree and beautiful décor and music!
I'm sipping a bit from my January cuppa tea!
Yes even - at my computer desk.
I should have framed this picture in lace and silk and a special bit of trim!
Naaaahhh. It's still my birthday month and my joy!
Psalm 5:3 ..
"In the morning, O Lord, you hear my voice;
In the morning, I lay be my requests before you and wait in expectation."
I draw Dr. Suess into the context of this Scripture ... as it says
"You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself any direction you choose.
You're on you own. and you know what you know.
And you are the one who'll decide where to go."
I choose today,
I decide to live my life with divine purpose...
Won't you join me and do the same!
Know that I Wish You Well ~ Today!
