It's catching on…
Mr. Brian and his wife were at the Trad's market this past weekend (and so were we-hee! Hee!) we had a conversation about his recent dinner experience. I shared in his dismay as he gave an account of his observation, which went something like this: "We were at... for dinner. Looking around, there were so many people on their phones. Not talking to the ones they were with. RIGHT next to us was a table of a mother and a father and their son who must have been about 17 years old. ALL of them on their own phone. THE WHOLE TIME. I don't think they said but a few words to one another through out the WHOLE meal. I said right then that I AM determined to make sure that does NOT happen to MY FAMILY! And this (Cup Of Time) really, really could help avoid that! I have twins. One boy and one girl...you know what...give me a set of each! I'm buying it because I believe in what it stands for!" Mr. Brian received a mom/daughter and a dad/son set. They can interchange them as they see fit. Their whole family can even do it all together at the same time if they choose! Way to go Mr. Brian! We need more fathers like you: protective of who we are to become and willing to stand for things that truly matter.
Hands UP and cell phones down everybody. Talk to that person across the table- eye ball to eye ball. I challenge you Cup Of Time Nation to spend more TIME LOOKING at those you communicate with while encouraging them to LOOK at you. Eye contact changes everything! 😊👍😝 see if you were not looking - you would not have realized I even made a face at you! 😜 💖 it's catching on!
Who has TIME? Very few people do. But EVERYONE makes TIME for what is important to THEM.💖✨💖
One of the most important parts of our lives are the relationships we have. To me they are as important as food, water and the air that we breathe. Although we cannot literally die from being without relationships it has been proven that we certainly can go crazy alone. Many Hollywood movies illustrate how being alone is not good. Solitary confinement is effective on purpose. God said it is not good for us to be alone first in the very first book of His Bible.
Genesis chapter 2 verse 18: And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.
Thus we woman were formed (Hallelijah! Right? Now life REALLY can begin! Hee-he!)
More seriously, feeling alone amongst people is even worse. It can drain our self confidence, deplete tenacity, and destroy most every naturally good characteristic man has ever had. Feeling alone among people can cause us to behave in manners that we would not normally behave in. Everyone needs to "fit in" somewhere. Relationships shape our lives and Loneliness IS a killer. Help your loved ones fit in your family today with Cup Of Time.
There was a TIME...
There was a time when I despised my husband. I know, what an awful thing to say, AND it is TRUE! I despised him! He NEVER talked to me! He has ALWAYS been a GOOD MAN a very good man in fact. Handsome, intelligent, dependable...These good qualities did not replace what I needed. What I NEED yet today. COMMUNICATION. It is one of my love languages. The more regularly we meet for our Cup Of Times, the better our relationship is. If your spouse, or children for that matter, are frustrated with you even though you are working overtime to please them, maybe we are working at the wrong things? Remember LOVE gives TIME. TIME is more precious than THINGS. In the height of my frustration with my husband, he was equally frustrated because he was working hard to provide and doing multiple TASKS at home to help out but it didn't move me emotionally. Not one bit. Yes I was appreciative. But honestly none of it really mattered. I NEEDED his attention, not his mind...not his provisions...not his muscles for tasks. Since I was a little girl, I have always known, as long as I had LOVE, I could live in a cardboard box. Things have never been "my thing"-lol. My need as are so many others - is HONEST, DEEP, GENUINE COMMUNICATION. Enhance your relationships today with Cup Of Time.
It really works!
About a week ago while I was helping my elderly neighbors with some chores I could not help but notice the tension in the room. Long story short, I asked them if they had started doing Cup Pf Time with one another? Both replied "no". Mrs. neighbor stated " I ask him too all the time but he won't." At this moment I was able to ask Mr. Neighbor if he remembered why he bought them? With Mr. Neighbor restating the purpose of Cup Of Time "to show my wife I love her through communicating..." With this said and Mrs Neighbor dire need to be heard I was able to get a commitment from them both to SET the TIME and KEEP the TIME set with in ONE week! When I returned the following week the whole atmosphere of their home was different! Completely uplifted! Both said it really made a difference in their relationship. Stating "we had to use the brochure and we just loved it!" Remember : nothing works unless we work it! Set your TIME with your Cup Of Time peeps today! I know I am! 💖
