I desire faithful love and not sacrifice, the knowledge of God instead of entirely burned offerings. - Hosea 6:6 (CEB)

There’s something about tea that I find comforting. It isn’t just the flavor but the process of preparing it as well. Warm the pot, steep the leaves, sprinkle in sugar, watch the milk gently billow, then take a sip and feel my tensions ease.
Going through this ritual helps me...

Today's Prayer
Dear God, help us make time each day to steep in your love for us and to pour out that love on others. Amen.

"One Thanksgiving night there was a shooter in my neighborhood . . .

. . . The police were getting the closest families to evacuate. My house was close enough that we could see things happening but far enough away to be safe. The police had told some people to wait in front of our house where it was safe. There was a father and his young son outside our house, and they were getting cold. We invited them to come inside until it was safe. Thankfully, the situation was resolved without anyone getting hurt." Read more from Pockets magazine.
