Earlier this week I was at my parents on my lunch break. 
Standard occurrence. 

It was cold and rainy, so I raided my their tea stash. 

I found a pot of cuppa Gold.

Pineapple Waikiki Tea. 

I love pineapple.

I love tea.

I definitely think my mom was holding out on me.

Hiding the good stuff.

Anyway, put some water in her Hot Shot 
(what you don't have one? get one. you're welcome)

And soon I was sipping paradise itself.

How cute is that. 
HI Tea. High Tea.

It totally tickled my fancy when I saw that.

I was so happy to discover these little treasures.

The tea.

The cute name.

As I sipped my tea a bit more, I realized the mug I had grabbed from the cabinet was one my mom picked out when we visited Serendipity3 last May.

I think it was a bit of double SerendipiTEA finding the amazing pineapple tea, and being reminded of that by the mug it was in. 


But honestly, happening on something pleasant unexpectedly is always more than just chance.

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.  
James 1:17
Like these amazing views I have experienced this week.



The heavens declare the glory of God,  
and the sky above proclaims his handiwork.
Psalm 19:1

Your eyes saw my unformed substance;
in your book were written, every one of them,
the days that were formed for me,
when as yet there was none of them.
Psalm 139:16

No chance. No happenstance.
In His book, it is all written.

I'll take that over serendipity any day.
