I Believe ...

I'll show this tea set in detail in the future.

With God's help, we should strive to:

... be holy in all [we] do; for it is written: “Be holy, because I am holy.”
   (1 Peter 1:15, 16)

... rid [ourselves] of all such things as these: anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language from [our] lips.
   (Colossians 3:8)

... set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.

   (1 Timothy 4:12)

Another tea set we'll have to look at more closely.
( No cups or saucers for it.)
Because:

... the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people.  It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, while we wait for the blessed hope—the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good.
   (Titus 2:11-14)   All verses NIV, my changes in [ ].

The plate and kitty are gifts from my sister-in-law.
The glass basket was my mother's.
I bought the pitcher!

And then our "house" will surely be in bloom!

Have a blessed Friday!
