New International Version (NIV)
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.
I love this teapot that my sweet husband got me one year for Christmas. It lists all of the fruits of the spirit and reminds me of things that I should be exhibiting every single day.
I know I say it every week but this is one of my favorite teapots. It really is. How could it not be?
Hope your Tuesday is filled with warm cups of tea and lots of great conversations with friends.
“As the sky prepares to settle its tired, aching feet
into the night’s velvet slippers
I settle, into my armchair, soaking the teabag,
of my thoughts, into warm liquidy stars.”
― Sanober Khan, A touch, a tear, a tempest

What a thoughtful gift from your hubby. This is a very meaningful teapot n so many ways. Happy end of November. Will you be at your house for Christmas this year?
Thanks, Darlene. We are actually going to take 3 weeks and spend it in Florida this year. It has been such an odd year and Chris decided that we needed some real down time over Christmas so that is the plan. He SAYS he is going to take 2 whole weeks off but I will believe it when I see it. Hopefully all the kids will be able to make it for a few days while we are there but we have some family time planned before then as well so that will have to get me through. 🙂
Sounds like a good plan. Christmas can be a lot of stress if we let it. It is quieter here in Spain, although I will miss my family. Paul´s parents will join us for a home-cooked meal at out place. Of course we have Dot who will put out a stocking and keep us entertained. xx
I love your teapot! Such fun colors and the message! Happy Tuesday ~
Thanks! I love this one as well but then I kind of say that about all of my teapots in my collection, don’t I? Thanks for stopping by!
Gorgeous teapot!! You do have some amazing finds in your vast collection. Thanks for all the sharing and the “tea quotes” you always include. Have a blessed day.
Thanks so much, Rachel. I do love this one and yes–my collection is vast. 🙂 It is kind of ridiculous and last week someone gave me 2 more as gifts. I rotate them in and out now which reminds me it is time to get out the bins of Christmas teapots!
No wonder it’s one of your favorites. First it’s from you hubby and second, it reminds you of all that good fruit. Years ago, I led a ladies’ Bible study on the fruit of the Spirit and when it was over, the ladies gave me this beautifully painted slate (from an old barn roof) that has the fruit of the Spirit on it. It’s hung on my kitchen wall ever since and reminds me every day to bear that good fruit. 🙂
Oh I love that! I am sure that is one ting that brings you much happiness when you look at it and since it has a place of prominence in your kitchen you get the opportunity to see it often. Thanks for sharing!
I love this teapot too because of the WORDS.
The words are perfect, aren’t they? It is a functional and inspirational teapot and one that makes me smile when I use it. Which reminds me, I need to use it today!
Inspirational! Motivational. It’s all in the pot or at least on it.
It is! Thanks for stopping by, josh! It means a lot!
Love, love, love that tea pot and the accompanying quote. xoxo
Thanks, Susi! It’s a good one!
This is so so pretty! I love the sentiments expressed.
I also love this series. I always mean to check on your posts but sometimes forget.
