Why Coffee?

I was in my late twenties before I discovered the joys of coffee! It was the winter of ’95, and I was teaching school. I got into the habit of grabbing a cup of coffee just to have something warm in my hands. Gradually, I began to enjoy the smell, and finally, after a few weeks, I was drinking my hand-warmer.

Now, more than a decade later, I have become a coffee connoisseur. I love to experiment, adding cinnamon or peppermint to the coffee grounds. I make a large pot in the morning, and sip on it all day. I savor that first cup, for it gives me the jolt I need to get started!

Psalm 19:7 says, “The law of the Lord is perfect, reviving the soul.” God’s Word is like spiritual caffeine! The more we hold it, read it, smell it, taste it, and live it, the more energy it will supply to our weary spirits. So, grab that cup o’ joe, and sit with me a while. Together, we will share, laugh, and renew our spirits.
