Advent Tea

Last night our church hosted an Advent Service and Tea for women.  The music was wonderful and the guest speakers did an outstanding job.    The theme was Follow the Star.  The first speaker talked about following God's plan for her to open a home for teen mothers and the second speaker started a business for developmentally disabled employees.  They make gourmet popcorn.  She had popcorn available and with every sale she is shipping popcorn to troops in Afghanistan.

After hearing such inspirational stories, I was wondering why I had spent even one minute fretting about my table setting and decorations.  It is always so uplifting to hear how God works our lives in such a powerful way.

Here is a photo of the table that I hosted.  We had peppermint ice cream and Christmas cookies and the servers were the daughters of the planners, ranging in age from 4 to 12.  They all did such a great job.


  1. What a nice event hosted by your church. Your table looks elegant!

  2. Yes, with so much going on around us that is truly serious and so many are hurting so much, many of my/our daily "trials" pale to nothingness by comparison! We must do what we are led to do and leave the rest to the Lord. Blessings, Doreen
