Faithfulness Tea

FAITH is being sure of what we hope for
and certain of what we do not see.
Hebrews 11:1
We live by FAITH and not by sight.
II Corinthians 5:7
Without FAITH it is impossible to please God,
because anyone who comes to Him must believe
that He exists and that He rewards those who
earnestly seek Him.
Hebrews 11:6
Make every effort to add to your FAITH goodness;
and to goodness, knowledge, and to knowledge, self-control;
and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness;
and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness,
love. For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they
will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your
knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
II Peter 1:5-8

For our tea party today I am serving a little buttery cookie.
They melt in your mouth and are perfect for a steamy cup of tea.
I love these cookies because they are so versatile!
You can add any color or shape sprinkles to the top.

The Kitchenettes ~ A Hospitality Club

Romans 12:13
Pursue the practice of hospitality.

The Kitchenettes is all about teaching and mentoring young girls in the art of hospitality. It is so much more than cooking or doing domestic tasks ~ hospitality is the very heart of God ~ a demonstration of pouring His love onto others. This group of young girls are learning the very nature and character of God as they serve people and sharpen their skills in homemaking.
