White As Snow
Last night was our annual Christmas Tea at church.
It was beautiful.
My dear friend Susan spoke. Our theme was White As Snow from Isaiah chapter one - "Though your sins are as scarlet, they will be white as snow." Perhaps an odd verse for a ladies tea, but as Susan said last night, it is Grace to us. The LORD, Jehovah, that Great I AM has said this to us. When He uses things in our live to draw us to Him it is grace, and he repeats to us "Though your sins be as scarlet, they will be white as snow." Beautiful truths.
My friend Amy did the tree for the food table. Isn't it great?
This style is so different, than what either one of us would do in our own homes. But wow we had fun with the theme! Silver and white. I did the tables, and also used all my tea cups, teapots, and luncheon plates. Our ladies all bring either a savory or a sweet to share.
Scones, homemade lemon curd, and strawberry jam.
Several ladies helped with the clean up at church. We use our sanctuary, so we had to take down the tables, and pack up the decorations, and VACUUM.
It was raining, too, a steady soaking rain. When we got home we left the lamps, and decor in the car but brought the dishes and tea cups in. I washed them up and headed straight to bed!
It was such a special night.
Amy and I are so addicted to event planning. We already know what we are doing for next years tea!
I'm already looking forward to it!
