Sweet Tea & Sweet Faith

When I lived in Florida we often  had visitors from the North during the winter. We were in a restaurant with one of our snowbird friends who made a comment about how good the tea taste in the South. I told her it was sweet tea. She responded that she put sugar in her tea at home but it never tasted that good.

We told her that in the North she brewed tea and then added the sugar which mostly sinks t the bottom of the glass. In the South the sugar is added before the water boils so that it is mixed completely and makes the tea sweet.

The same can be said for our Christian lives. Some people add an element of faith in God to their lives but it never mixes in to all of it. It is only when the love of God is throughly mixed into the whole of our beings that we have a sweet faith that fills our world with love. 

Do others taste the sweetness of your faith when you are away from church?


  1. hey my friend, hope you're doing well!

  2. I do not know other than if you want the tea to be dark and not cloudy that you also add a pinch of baking soda into the simple syrup solution.

    You should check out the White Trash cookbook for some down home recipes...
