Respite Wednesday

"You can never get me a cup of tea large enough,
Or a book long enough to suit me."
~~ C.S. Lewis ~~

Though my books get bigger and my teacups as well, I still close the back cover far too quickly and empty the cup too soon for my liking. Thus my delightful quest continues. : )

Today I bid you all a respite of reading. I shall choose to steal away to the deck after my list of "Musts" has been satisfied.

I will savor these curious Autumn days that clothe themselves in summer-weight garments despite the coming of November. The entrepreneurial adventures of Walt Disney will accompany me into an afternoon of respite.

Where will you settle and what will you choose to read?

Well hello, Mrs. Potts. What a lovely surprise to see you here. Will Chip be joining us? No, off on another adventure I'm sure.

I brought my copy of Legacy of Sovereign Joy by John Piper. Oh I know it may be a little heavy but the peace and light here lends itself to meditation.

God Bless!

What a charming,lovely post. I think I would be reading The Wizard of Oz if I were sitting in that first picture.
The last time I sat down and read a book was a week ago and I finished it. Haven't started another.
My tea tonight is Egyptian Licorice for my sensitive throat but I like Mandarin Orange Spice better. Actually I like coffee better than tea but it's growing on me.
