Spring Tea

Yesterday, we held a Spring Tea to honor our mothers. Nothing elaborate, just a short and sweet time of fellowship and fun. Finger sandwiches, veggies, fruits, and yummy desserts were served, along with hot and iced tea, coffee, lemonade, and water, which were served to the ladies by some of the wonderful manfolk in our congregation. We began with prayer, the ladies enjoyed the goodies of food and conversation and laughter, Cassie led a trivia game, and we concluded with a litany, praying the Our Father, and the benediction. All the ladies left with a little packet which included packages of tea, seeds, and other goodies, and sixteen of the ladies were blessed to win a potted plant by answering the questions asked in the trivia game. Lots of fun! The idea to do this was introduced by Cassie just a few weeks ago, but you would have never known that we threw things together quickly, and we were extremely pleased to have such a good turnout on short notice. The ladies had a wonderful time together. We'll definitely do this again next year!
