Feminine Friday August 29, 2008

Feminine Friday is hosted by thebarefootmama.com. To participate post:

“An outfit that you own (or a photo of a favorite look) that exhibits your femininity (does not have to be a dress…be yourself!)

A hairstyle, accessory or piece of jewelry that is special and makes you feel beautiful

Something in your home – can be nonwearable, of course – that represents your femininity (it can be anything!!)

An inspiring or thought-provoking article, book review or quotation on any topic related to femininity

Feminine Friday is not about being a cookie-cutter. Share what femininity means to you and how you define modesty, beauty and being a Daughter of the King.”

This week, for feminine friday, I am going to share with you one of my favorite feminine things- tea!

The art of having tea is one of my favorite feminine traditions. Whether it is a warm Autumn tea with friends, a hot steaming cup by myself with a blanket and good book or a mason jar of sweet iced tea on the porch with a neighbor, I feel every inch a lady.

With Autumn (my favorite holiday) right around the corner, I’ve been rotating the tea collection that I have in the tea caddy to orange spice black teas, pomegranate reds, and cinnamon white teas.

What is your favorite way to do tea?

My Sweet Granddad

Thank you so much for praying for my Granddad. He was given a diagnosis of Advanced Pancreatic Cancer and things seem to be moving quickly. Our family will be traveling out to be with him this weekend. Today, he is undergoing a procedure that will help drain the bile which is causing him to be jaundiced with considerable pain. If this procedure is successful, he will have a much better prognosis than if it is not. If the procedure isn’t successful, he won’t have much time. I am asking for more prayers for my sweet Granddad. Pray that he has the strength to get through these procedures and is comforted with God’s peace. Please also pray that God does a miracle and brings my Uncle Scott to come see him. I love you Granddad.
