…strategic timeouts (more #tea anyone?)

You may be thinking, “Virginia, enough about tea already!” The challenge with sharing something appreciated (forever) is squeezing everything in one post.

There are so many teas. Virginia still has many more favorites!

Like this lovely green Rishi Jasmine Tea. (Rishi also has a fabulous chocolate tea gifted to me awhile back. Of course, it’s all gone!)

You may also be thinking, how can Virginia write about tea when global challenges – conflicts, injustice, and deadly viruses – fill our screens? Yes, I am seeing the same negative stuff as you.

Working in conflict zones and serving as a caregiver (both equally hard) Virginia learned the value of recharging internal batteries. Because how we do what we do matters.

Being totally frazzled doesn’t help me, or anyone.

Taking daily timeouts for prayer & peace = important!

As we do all we can to be Light (accessing God’s grace that’s available daily for me and you) try to appreciate something good amidst the chaos.

Take a timeout for something that brings you joy.

“Almost everything will work again if you unplug it for a few minutes…including you.” Anne Lamott

grace, peace & strategic timeouts

    I love your approach! Agree, life is so frazzled and it is time to chillax. I love Jasmine tea too and perhaps in Asia it is more abundant than in USA. I am too lazy to deal with tea leaves and buy tea bags of tea – green tea, jasmine, oolong, earl grey, heaps of flavors and I sometimes wonder if there is really an expiry date for tea leaves as I have kept canisters of tea leaves from Sri Lanka and wonder if it is still good.
