From the tags of tea

I like to drink tea. Everyone knows that. There's a nice little collection going in the corner cupboard. Sometimes, depending on what I want, I choose Yogi brand; for example, they have a great ginger tea that is nice for a wobbly stomach.

Anyway, Yogi tea bags always have bits of wisdom on their tags. Except . . . they're usually not that wise.

Today's example: "Live in your strength."


Oh dear. As if I didn't try to do that enough already, and fail miserably every stinkin' time. No thanks. Sorry, tea bag, but there are the words I'll be living by.

"Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm."

-Ephesians 6:10-13


  1. Speaking of tea, Dr. Holmes figured out how to order authentic Turkish tea online. It's very exciting :)

  2. Rebekah, You're right on. I like it. Tea, yes, but also and especially the truth of God's Word.

  3. Nathaniel and I trade Yogi inscriptions like fortune cookie sayings.
