The invitation for the tea said to bring with you your favorite tea cup. Being the tea cup collector that I am, I have close to thirty tea cups that I proudly display in our front living room in various spots of the room.
I wasn't sure which one to bring. I thought about bringing my Disneyland tea cup with Tinkerbell on it, that would for sure be a unique one and would represent my love for tea cups as well as my love for Disneyland. But ultimately, I decided upon my "Joy" teacup. I carefully washed it and off to the tea we went. I had no idea how the choosing of my tea cup would tie into the message that I would later hear that morning.
Yeah. See the connection there? I lost it. I have never been so intensely moved to tears as I was with that statement. I breifly feared that I would not be able to stop crying, but thankfully the Lord knew I'd been touched and he caused the tears to stop.
Over the last four and a half years, I have met several women via in the internet, and have even met two mothers locally, Joy and Kelly, who've all experienced having a baby born with a cleft of some sort. Never have I thought as my encouraging these other mothers as a REFLECTION OF HIS BEAUTY.
Wow. Wow. Wow.
The Lord knew what my Mom's message held. He knew. It was Him that prompted me to bring the tea cup I did and with that, it's just another example of how His hand was on every detail, big and small, of that garden tea.
isn't God good?
