The candle was to provide a pretty scent.
The tea was for peace and energy. (I view tea as a Sabbath in a cup).
Before student teaching, when I would burn a candle, it would only be lit for a short while before I left to do other things and safely blew it out. During student teaching, I would have it burn for hours (with me right beside it, Mom).
I learned something watching the candle's flame (besides that I had a short attention span): Sometimes the flame burns low, but it doesn't burn out. Many times during my hours of lesson planning and grading I thought that I would need to grab a new candle due to an over-taxed lit candle, but the flame kept burning. It came back stronger.
|Keep burning, little one!!|
