Good morning, “good” morning….to you!

Psalm9014

Mr. E and I have been “trying” to go to bed a bit earlier, and wake up earlier the past number of days. While consistency has proven to be a challenge, when we do follow our “earlier-riser schedule” it is really helpful for us both. Mornings provide a time for us to shift our perspectives, and gather our thoughts before the day fully begins. It is a time for prayer, walks, breakfast, a cup of tea, Scripture, and reflection. Our hope is to make it a more regular habit in the Elzinga home.

However, I’d have to say the new “habit” requires a bit of a “wake me up.” And since we’re not coffee drinkers around here, a morning cup of black tea is in order. My current tea of choice? The London Fog! There’s truly no better way to start the morning that a nice foamy mug of tea.

Ah, London Fog Tea. Here’s the recipe:
1 Earl Grey tea bag, brewed in hot boiling water.
1 teaspoon raw sugar
a bit of milk steamed milk (made even easier w/ the new handy-dandy little handheld “milk foamer” Mr. E purchased for me from Ikea” for $3)
a few drops of real vanilla extract (preferably the kind made with love by my dear sister-in-law, Mrs. Naomi Sullivan or the kind purchased in Honduras)
