Share the Joy and Tea Talk Thursday



Having family get togethers and seeing the young and old enjoying life at it's best.


HH's oldest brother 83, joining in the music making.
This man is amazing.
He still works 2 days a week as a salesman for a huge tire chain in the city.
Attends Churchill Downs racing everyday that the horses are running.

He just radiates joy and it is contagious.


The youngest members of the family.
HH's niece and family.
Feeling the warmth and joy.






Having.............MAXWELL HOUSE COFFEE

In...........my regular coffee cup. 

Feeling.............grateful, very snug and cozy in my nice warm home with my HH especially since the rain and cooler weather was come to us in the form of fall.

Thinking about..........all of those folks out there who do not have a warm and cozy place to be in this world. Doing what I can to help in our small way. Involved in "Coat-a-kid" in our community.


"You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither
do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand,
and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine
before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven."
 (Matthew 5:14-16 NIV)

Linking up with




Come join us.
These sites keep my blogging in balance.









A Closer Look

Where are you, my heart?
Where are you, my soul?
I cannot find you any more.
I looked at him and I looked at her.
No, that's not what I want to see.

I searched down deep and poked around.
It hurt so much I turned back.
Halfway back I looked at nee.
No, not Mrs. or Miss could I see.

I only see what I had tried to be.
As I backed out of the hole I dug,
I heard myself say
"Here I am!"
"Look at me!"

"Here I am?"
Where did that spring from, this searching day?
I looked asky and I looked aground.
Nowhere could I be found.

I turned and saw a face aglow,
Absent of all worry and woe.
Because I looked just when I did,
Straight ahead.
Now I am found.

Hello Peggy!
Thanks for visiting my blog and introducing yourself.
There are not many Peggy's in Australia so I meet very few.
I see you are a Sagittarius....I am also and we obviously share similar music taste.....how wonderful.

I LOVE your header photo and the Kahil Gibran quote (I am quote freak and put one on each of my posts).

I really like your insightful poem too.

Hugs

Hello Peggy,
Thank you for sharing your coffee time with us @ Tea Talk. I'm glad to see you had wonderful time with your beautiful family relatives. Loved the photos.
Thank you too for sharing your beautiful poem; very well written.I sometimes feel lost and need to find myself, which is a hard process. It is only when I pause from my busy world and spend a quite time with the Lord that I can find myself again.

Cozy home, that's what many people need most here. I'm blessed to hear you are serving your community in a special way.

Blessings!

Hello~ I love your photo at the top of your 83 year old friend. Joyful people are so wonderful to be around! I hope to be like that when I am old too. What a good reminder that I should be practicing right now.

God bless you and have a wonderful day.
