Peace in a Cup

Every morning in INDIA started the same way – with Chai and prayer.  I found out that one’s day goes smoother when you start it at peace. And also that I am not as lactose intolerant as I had believed.

I’ve made several attempts at Chai since I’ve been home and am pretty close to the yummy brew I experienced in INDIA. Here’s the recipe if you’re feeling up to it –

2 cups water

1 cup milk

1/4 tsp ginger

2 tsp black tea

2.5 tbsp sugar

1/2 tsp cardamom

Bring water, milk and ginger to a boil then remove from heat. Add sugar, tea and cardamom. Let sit for 3 – 6 minutes, then using a strainer, pour into a teapot.

Drink slowly, savoring the spices. Pretend you’re cool and are hanging in INDIA. Feel superior. Realize that’s not a Kingdom value and pray for forgiveness. Receive the grace. Ahhh, PEACE. Works every time.
