Welcome...I'm delighted that you chose to visit! I started this blog in March 2010 and I am so happy that I did. It has made me more aware of the many ways that God is blessing my life. I have made some special friends who bless,teach,encourage,and entertain me! My desire is to be an encouragement to you. I hope you will tarry for a while and that you will come back to visit often.

a sweet september saturday

We hosted this event at our church Saturday. About 200 women of all ages attended the one day conference.

Travis Cottrell is a wonderful praise and worship leader and, of course, no one teaches like Beth Moore. She is most definitely one-of-a-kind!

I invited four of my friends to come and they did!

Rather than eat the boxed lunch that was available
to purchase with your ticket, I made reservations
for us at the "British Pantry and Tea Room"
just a couple of blocks down the street.

The cute chalkboard listed the sides for the day
and one of the desserts that was available.
Notice that they are on Facebook...
that cracked me up!

Three of my friends ordered the
Coronation Chicken Salad
with curry cream sauce,three pasta salad,
and garden salad pictured below.
One friend and I ordered a Spinach, Cheese
and Tomato Quiche,
garden pea salad, and garden salad.
Not sure how I missed taking a picture of ours!
It was all very tasty and lovely to look at!

For dessert, I ordered a scone with lemon curd and
devonshire cream. I had never had a scone before.
I was a little surprised that it was just a biscuit! :-)

Another dessert was a Strawberry trifle.
It was pretty in the glass
and the sprinkles on top made me smile!

And last, but not least, a chocolate meringue
with fresh peach slices and cream.

This was the tea service they brought to the table.

The tables are pretty with royal purple and white
tablecloths and napkins and fresh flowers.

As I said, it is also a pantry, so they have
British food items for sale.

And, of course, china tea cups and mugs.

This was one of my favorites...lily of the valley.

More lovely flowers.

And there were British souvenir type items.

Naturally, Her Royal Highness, Queen Elizabeth
presided over the whole affair! :-)

One last parting shot before returning for the afternoon
session with Beth.

Worship, bible study and breaking bread
with precious friends...
I can't think of a better way to spend a September Saturday!


  1. I hopped online before church this morning, and now I need to dash downstairs and grab my Travis Cottrell CD - he IS great, and I haven't listened to it in a long time!

    What a great day with your friends...I'd *love* to see the tearoom in person. And I *have* seen a Beth Moore simulcast in person! (simulcast in person...kind of oxymoron-ish, I think)

  2. What a perfect day... tea, scones, friends, Beth, Travis... :)

    Blessings, Debbie
