Tea Makes Everything Better

Does a hot cup of tea REALLY make everything better? There are many cute signs which promise there’s a tea for everything. Being an avid tea drinker, I understand the meaning behind the memes.

The simple process of preparing tea is contemplative. You can’t rush tea. It has its own time schedule. Waiting for the boil of the water and steeping of the leaves, allows me to slow down and prepare my heart.

Drinking a hot cup of tea calms my nerves, soothes my spirit, and relaxes my mind. When I’m stressed it untangles me. During times of hurt, it coats my inner pain. When my mind is so crowded I’ve left no spiritual whitespace, it erases the margins and opens up the mental page I’m thinking on.

I’ve given thought to why tea makes everything better for me. I believe It positions me to slow down so I can hear God better and be stirred by His Holy Spirit.

Why not take time today to indulge in a hot cuppa and spend time with The One who can make everything better?

  1. Just now, the realization hit me. June Chapko’s multiple talents have been influential in my life for over 30 years. My latest cuppa of inspiration comes from her book the Estate Sale. Once I begin reading it, I was unable to put it down until I finished it. And now, I am anxiously awaiting Book 2 of this Legacy Series.

  2. I am doing some work for June, and I stumbled across her reference to an age-old British adage, “tea solves everything”. Cheryl and I know an Anglican-Catholic priest from England who told us a cup of tea is a great source of comfort.no matter the situation. “Oh, your home burned down? Have a cup of tea.” “oh, no! You were in an accident? Have a cup of tea.” He went on in this vein for many more minutes to further illustrate his point. And Cheryl has known for years the health advantages of drinking tea. So I was joyfully surprised to, * serendipity *, find both aspects of tea to be borne out to be absolutely true after researching June’s phrase, “tea solves everything”. It turns out reading June’s books are beneficial not only to your spiritual health but to your physical health as well. So live longer, healthier, leaner, and more stress-free while reducing your risk of heart problems and of certain types of cancer by drinking tea and by reading June’s books! https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/real-life-stories/a-cup-of-tea-solves-everything-505302

    1. Thank you, Hal for such a great recommendation for my book. I do have to say…reading my book will not reduce your risk of any health problems, but it will increase your risk of wanting to read book two, Legacy’s Path, coming very soon.
