Share Your Cup Thursday #59

Hello my friends and welcome to Share Your Cup.  The party where you share what ever it is in life that makes you happy.

The last few days, my mind has been weighing heavily on the disaster in Oklahoma.  Sometimes it’s easy to think that being happy about the mundane things in life seems a bit trivial.

Disasters and tragedies happen.  Even during these terrible times, we must look for things to bring us happiness.  Tears came to my eyes seeing photos of children being rescued from underneath all that rubble.  It was easy to see that they were so HAPPY to be alive.  Many have lost everything, but still express gratitude and happiness for being spared.

Keep them in your prayers, but don’t stop being happy for life’s every day little pleasures!

Features from SYC #58:

Michele from The Nest at Finch Rest shared her beautiful red tea in the garden.

I adore these chippy benches and old books that Joy from A Vintage Green found in an old shed.

I always have such a hard time choosing one food feature.  You know this girl loves to eat. lol!  But doesn’t Sandi’s Banana Mallow Pie look delicious?  She shares the recipe at Rose Chintz Cottage,

Jann, I so agree with what you've said. We can pray and weep for those who are suffering, but we shouldn't forget the beauty that God has surrounded us with every day. That's one reason I love blog parties! What a wonderful celebration of the creativity and eye for beauty God has given to us all!

Carlene @ Organized Clutter said...

Jann, I wanted to link a garden post but the weather has been so wet I wasn't able to. The sun is out for the weekend and I will finally be planting. Great features today!

Julia Klimek said...

Thank you for this party, and for your words. You put that so well, and I so agree with you.
Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. :)

amy mayen said...

Thanks for thinking of us Jann. It's now flooding which makes it hard to clean up the debris. I have 2 rivers in my yard. But, I don't have pieces of my house in my yard, so I'm focusing in the positive. I have a construction business and we have a crew ready to go in and help clean up as soon as the police finish searching and let us in. Keep sending your prayers and light our way!

Sumaya at Evocative Vintage said...

Oh, I want some of that yummy pie right now and that painted wall is a labour of love! Thanks for a delightful party Jann. I linked up my first ever wreath!:)

Hugs
Sumaya
