The fan behind my daughter and little companion brought me back from Puerto Rico this last year when they went on their cruise. I actually use my fans, mostly in church. (Oh ya, everyone is wishing they had a fan as they are sneak fanning with their bulletins.)
She has a cup that looks a whole lot like this Golden Rose Royal Chelsea on her post on June 8. So I figure if Bunny and I ever meet up we can bring our teacups, sit and chat, and have tea. The thought makes me smile.
There have been some unexpected changes here this last week that have been pretty rough on some of my family. Ah, that's life. Remembering, as I would insist to my dad that something wasn't fair his words would be... life ain't fair. How true.
But, luckily we move on, storms in life come and go and we press onward toward our ultimate goal of a home with God.
Here's one of my favorite poems again.
The Winds of Fate
Ella Wheeler Wilcox
One ship drives east and another drives west
With the selfsame winds that blow,
'Tis the set of the sails
And not the gales
Which tells us the way to go.
Like the winds of the sea are the ways of fate,
As we voyage along through life:
'Tis the set of a soul
That decides its goal,
And not the calm or the strife.
Love that poem! Wishing everyone going through something not fair right now the peace that comes from God. Oh and HAPPY TEACUP TUESDAY!!!!
