The food was amazing - no matter what my daughter says.
It was a really nice time spent with family & friends. Thank you to my sister for inviting me and Mary.

The best part of the Ladies Tea was the speaker. Oh! What a blessing that was .. more than I can put into words. The speakers name is Linda Hicks and she has an amazing singing voice too!! What a gift this lady has .. she will have you laughing and crying all at the same time. She spoke yesterday on "Blooming where God has planted you!" I have never thought about this, but I am now.

I am hoping that the church taped the message because it is one that I would love to listen over and over and I would love to take some notes. I just wasnt' thinking yesterday to take some paper & pen to take notes. I really missed that one ...
The flowers she used to talk about was:
1- The African Violet - it is a flower that you will bloom no matter what the circumstances is it growing in. Whether is doesnt' get watered or it gets buried in the ground. It still blooms. This one doesn't need all the glory that goes with it. Do you bloom for God no matter if anyone pays attention to you?
2- The Orchard - This flower blooms for weeks and never fades. The bloom doesn't wither away for the time that it is blooming. It will hold true. Do you keep going in your walk with God?
3- The Rose - Now this flower is the most gorgeous and it grows among thorns. Enough said on this one .. Do you bloom no matter what your circumstances are? With whatever your thorns are?
