Whatever is lovely...

(Kim's 2303 texture, hardlight, 30% opacity)

At Jumping Tandem, the retreat that I was at this weekend,
I received this cup in my swag bag.
It features the scripture in Philippians 4:8 that tells us to 
"Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. 
Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise."
I decided to take a simple still life photo of my favorite tea in my new cup
along with my Amplified Bible, in which I have that passage marked.

I love my new reminder to set my mind on whatever is lovely.
