Teatime is an important part of my day. In the morning before work, it's a quick mug of Earl Grey to get me started, and a teabag will do the trick. In the evening, I take a little more time, and often use my Harney and Sons loose leaf tea. On weekends, I often treat myself to loose leaf Earl Grey with lavender brewed in one of my many teapots. Years ago, I enjoyed my tea this way every day. It was a quiet moment in my day, usually while my children were napping, or at school. I would choose a teapot and a teacup from my collection and a book to enjoy with my tea. I miss those moments and wish I had more time to slow down and enjoy the ritual of teatime.
I'm sharing a picture of two of my favorite teapots below. I especially like the verse on the small one. It reads You will fill me with joy in Your presence. Psalm 16:11 NIV.

What special moments in your busy day bring you peace?
