As the embers of a year well-lived glow in the fireplace, I raise my glass to the incredible community we’ve built here at Sweet Tea & Friends. Each month, you remind me of the power of shared stories and the comfort of kindred spirits. Thank you for making my virtual porch swing a welcoming haven. As we step into the unknown of a new year, I cling to the hope that our paths will continue to intertwine, weaving a tapestry of shared experiences and enduring friendships. Here’s to the journey ahead, wherever it may lead.

 For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever! So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever.

2 Corinthians 4:17-18— NLT

Sweet Tea & Friends is a MONTHLY PARTY and will run from 1:00 am on the 1st of every month through 11:55 pm on the 21st of the month.
