Well here is it! It’s National Coffee Day! And I am glad for all of you coffee drinkers out there! I have a certain disdain for coffee, as you know I prefer the Gentleman’s Drink. It could be that it all started when my older brother took a sip of my father’s coffee and then sprinting off puking. I have not really had much of a desire for coffee since that day! Or, it could be that I like to keep saying my classic one liner when asked if I want a cup of java – “No, thanks, I’m a Christian!” ( what that had to do with it , I am not really sure!)
But here is it upon us, National Coffee Day – so enjoy a coffee break and a cup of joe! Several coffee serving establishments are giving it away today. Over at Punchbowl.com, you can even send a Coffee Day e-card for free, to share the love!
Actually I love the idea of coffee, because it is so associated with sitting down and having deep conversation. So, maybe you should consider taking a cup of the world’s favorite beverage over to a friend, or an enemy, and share some time with them. I am sure it will make their day! Even I would probably suffer through a cup ( laced with lots of cream and sugar) to spend time together!
22-25So let’s do it—full of belief, confident that we’re presentable inside and out. Let’s keep a firm grip on the promises that keep us going. He always keeps his word. Let’s see how inventive we can be in encouraging love and helping out, not avoiding worshiping together as some do but spurring each other on, especially as we see the big Day approaching. Hebrews 10:24-25 The Message (MSG)
