It’s all about the cup…


Vacation days are almost over.

It’s been all kinds of wonderful.

I’m sad to leave our beloved little vacation condo in the desert,

(thanks to our dear friend’s use of their time share!),

but I also miss my own little nest and our loved ones at home.

The vacation condo kitchen here has the plainest, littlest coffee cups so I popped into Marshall’s and bought myself a cute, and bigger, cup.  That, and breakfast and devotions on the veranda over looking the San Jacinto mountains is this week’s simple pleasure.





Still following,

  1. it sounds like you have had a lovely break. May you know the rich grace of the Father as you return. Mave

  2. That's a beautiful coffee cup! Praying you are coming back refreshed and renewed in Spirit.

  3. Amen to what Mave said. She said it so perfectly!

  4. That cup is so pretty; breakfast looks delicious; and that view is beautiful! Enjoy! Best wishes and blessings, Tammy

  5. Love that cup! And the beautiful place to spend quiet time with the Father! May you come home rested and refreshed with your cup full of blessings that overflow.

  6. Wow!! What a stunning view of the mountains! I love your new coffee mug, haha--buying it sounds like something I've done before on vacation, too! It's the little things in life, ya know?
    Also, I have to say that as I'm reading this I happen to be enjoying a bowl of granola with blueberries and coffee, just without the amazing view! :) Enjoy your day.
    Blessings, Leslie I

  7. What a true blessing for a vacation...and the blueberries and cups just seem to finish it all glad you had such a wonderful, relaxing time

  8. lovely locale.
    lovely cup * for as i always say,
    "life is too short to drink from an ugly cup."
    and your new cup, dear lady, is beautiful!

  9. Definitely sounds like a wonderful simple pleasure to me ... I am sure the view enhances your devotions!

  10. Well that is a WOW view! Simply gorgeous, and the coffee cup ... gawgeous!

  11. You have found a beautiful place to holiday, Elizabeth.
    It must be wonderful to start your day with God on that verandah!
    What a lovely view.
    Coffee cup is really cute too :-)

  12. Hi Elizabeth,
    I can totally relate to what you're saying about buying yourself a nice holiday cup.I usually take my own mug with me when I go away.
    Your cup is lovely
    God Bless
