Prissy has been joining me lately in my morning Tea with God. Every morning I get up and walk through our local park and count how many deer I can find (never less than one sometimes as many as 2 dozen). When I come home, I heat up a kettle and set up my morning tea table in the yard.
I know that on the ATAA list we have been talking about tea rituals, and this is one of mine. I love to take the time to make my morning tea special. I set my table with a lace tablecloth and always use a pretty cup and have a vase of flowers. Taking the time to arrange my morning fruit in a pretty pattern is another part of my ritual. It is always a special time for me to sip my tea and say my prayers. If for some reason I have to miss in the morning, I try to make up for it by having an evening tea in a quiet corner of my living room. Instead of a flower arrangement or sometimes in addition to I add a pretty candle.
