A Blessed Day
THIS IS THE DAY...I was BLESSED with the wonderful fellowship of very sweet ladies....one being my very BESTEST of friends, SUE. She is a Missionary to Papua New Guinea; home on furlough. Her daughter Missy, whom I blogged about recently invited us all to a very quaint ADORABLE Tea Parlor in a neighboring town. Along with us were two other young women from my church and also a couple of "little" darlings who had never been to TEA before.
I captured the most precious photos of the little ones "DRESSING UP" for tea. The Tea Parlor had a dresser filled with hats, necklaces, scarves and gloves.
It was so cute to watch how much they enjoyed being FEMININE! A LADY!
They giggled and posed very graciously for me...being the LADIES that they wanted to be...for the time any way!!
I loved seeing these two "Girlfriends" have such fun together since Missy's daughter will be leaving one day for the mission field with her parents. THIS DAY..for them..made memories!! One day, they will look over the photos with precious thoughts of a Special Day.
The lunch was WONDERFUL. A full TEA. I love Peach tea so that was my choice..however, before leaving home I purchased a nice lime green tea tin of Rooibus Berries and Cream TEA...YUMMY! I so enjoy a nice flavored tea. I need to watch my caffeine and since this is caffeine free...all the more to enjoy! The place was so enjoyable with it's whimsical decor.
The fun of visiting Tea Houses is the different decor used by each individual owner. This owner chose the Spring colors of pinks, and greens...whilst I have been to others that are of a Victorian Era and warm settings. Both very charming.
This photo is my favorite...just TWO BEST FRIENDS....like me and Sue. I can imagine this being us when we were little...we've been friends for over 35 years...raised our children together, taken vacations together...cried together..prayed together. "BEST FRIENDS"
Iron sharpeneth iron;so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend. Proverbs 27:17
THIS IS THE DAY...we sharpened the countenance of one another, with the joys of Christian Friendship and the sweet testimonies of faith shared by each.
