I'm not sad, I just realized how many "blue" teacups I have.
These are put away for now.
These are on display in the dining room.
And these, blue glass teacups, were just used for an afternoon tea that I posted about here: Saturday Tea in the Garden
The only thing is - I don't have a blue tea pot.
Except this little cutie. It's too small for a real tea!
This beautiful cup was a gift from a good friend.
I just love the blue roses on this one. It's not sitting on its matching saucer but it is in the stack!
Can you believe that I have purchased most of these at the Goodwill? At different times of course.
This is Christina Porcelain, Bavarian Blue, from Bavaria, W. Germany.
Isn't she pretty!
In my devotionals today I read this scripture and God has spoken to me through it. I hope that this will also touch someone else today.
"It's in Christ that we find out who we are and what we are living for. Long before we heard of Christ and got our hopes up, He had His eye on us, had designs on us for glorious living, part of the overall purpose He is working out in everything and everyone." Ephesians 1:11-12 The Message
Just like our teacups, the color, design, the placement of the artwork, God has designed us on purpose.
I leave you with this poem, but I do not know the author.
There's not a tint that paints the rose
Or decks the lily fair,
Or marks the humblest flower that grows,
But God has placed it there...
There's not a place on earth's vast round, in ocean's deep or air,
Where love and beauty are not found,
For God is everywhere.
