Iced Tea Day!

It’s a depressingly dark and rainy morning as I stare out the window for a thought to get the day started, but then I remember that it is International Sweet Tea day!  Well it’s actually National Iced Tea day, but what good is tea when it’s not sweet? Anyway, on June 10, 1904 at the St Louis Worlds fair, it seems they purveyors of the fair claim they invented iced tea – thus creating this glorious day. However, upon further inspection, like this bit of history here, it can be understood that those in the South were serving sweet tea long before 1904!

Tea Choice!

No matter, just get out there and kick back and refresh yourself by enjoying some iced tea today, remember it is the gentleman’s drink.

Oh and speaking of being refreshed, maybe this will be iced tea to your spirit!

For I will satisfy the weary soul, and every languishing soul I will replenish. Jeremiah 31:25 ESV

Hurray, It’s Iced Tea Day

Now, this is a day for me – National Iced Tea Day.  The only way it could be better is if it were National Sweet Tea Day.  But who cares, pick your version and sit back and sip on it and enjoy this pre-summer heat way.

Speaking of T’s – here’s two that are quite cool – Tim Tebow.  Tim is back in action selling his new book Through My Eyes and getting getting ready for this fall’s “football season”.   Anyway, apparently according to this Focus on the Family story Tim has created quite a buzz among Broncos fans with his mixed up priorities.  Here is what he has been recently quoted as saying

My No. 1 focus was on my foundation, the Tim Tebow Foundation, to bring faith, hope and love to those needing a brighter day in the darkest hour of need.

That is not only sweet, but is quite icey coming from the double T.
(Yes, that was a pretty ridiculous sentence, and yes, I probably should have deleted that!)

But it’s not a ridiculous thought.  It’s actually very impressive and shows his priorities.  I thinks it’s a good example of living for christ and dying for yourself, even though the foundation is named afer himself :),  and it should give you some motivation today.  It sort of reminds me of this.

33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Matthew 6:33 New International Version (NIV)

So grab your iced tea, but remember what you are really seeking.
