Tea Cup Tuesday

Hello tea cup loving friends!  


I found this teacup at the Goodwill without a saucer,  I thought it was much too pretty to leave there so I brought it home.  

 Then I went yard saling (sailing?) and I found the saucer.  


 When I picked it up, I thought it was a perfect match to the cup I had purchased previously.

They are made by the same company and are very similar, but different.  
 The flowers on the cup are different from the roses on the plate.  

The plate is called Apricot Rose. The cup doesn't have a name. I think they are beautiful together. Don't you love to have mismatched pieces that "match". 


My calendar today says " I asked God for all things so that I might enjoy life.  He gave me life so that I might enjoy all things."    And the scripture is Psalm 103:2  I will bless the Lord and not forget the glorious things he does for me.     As I reflect on these words I realize that He has done so much for me and I admit, in times of despair, I forget the things he has already done.   The promises he has made are still mine, and one at time, with my focus on Him, these promises will come to pass.   Sounds like I am encouraging myself here, and I am, but it's for you also.   God's word is for all of us, if we'll have it.    "Delight yourself also in Me, your LORD, and I will give you the desires of your heart"   Psalm 37:4.  He gives us friends, even in blogland, that are like this teacup and saucer.    We come from different places and have different patterns  but our maker is the same.   Isn't He wonderful!  

I am having tea with following today:

  5. Hi: You ministered to me today, thank you. I needed to be reminded of His blessings, including wonderful tea cups. I think these are part of the things He gave us to enjoy! Blessings, Martha

  8. Hello Jocelyne,
    What a pretty teacup and so nice to find the saucer to match! I love mismatched sets myself and I love how you used the analogy of friendships and teacups. I really enjoyed your post, my friend, and I agree with you about the Holy Spirit prompting you to send me the snack set which matches my other pieces! It came at a very good time. Thank you again for your thoughtfulness. I wish you a delightful and blessed week.

    Hugs,
    Sandi

  11. What beautiful words you write Jocelyn, and a lovely cup and saucer. Isn't it lovely that a little loan cup came home to someone who will love and cherish it. I so love rose patterned vintage china. xx
