A Cup of Joe !

 

Not me, not one cup … I require … well let me change that to desire … several cups of joe each day. I am in no means a connoisseur, just a lover of a good cup of coffee. What constitutes a good cup for me is one I can drink and enjoy plain-just black. Not too strong, not too weak, not too hot, not too cold, fresh is best, old is yucky, not to mention stinky. When out and about, I treat myself to sugar, cream, and a shake or two of cinnamon, cocoa, and vanilla. Now that’s my coffee dessert!

I greet each day with my beverage of choice; rising early to write and be with You, Dear Lord. I pray I am plain-just me-as I talk with You. I think I am; but sometimes I wonder if my writing is contrived; I humbly believe this is not so!

I hope I come across not too strong in my questions, not too weak in my convictions, not too heated, not too frigid; I pray my thoughts are not repetitive, though I do know my ponderings reflect inner struggles that are part of who I am-until I transform into the child You designed me to be!

Fresh thoughts, new conversations, allow me to know You, creating a deeper and more intimate relationship with You. I am humbled as You reveal Yourself to me word by word! I am humbled and deeply honored! Thank You and Bless You for Your patience; Thank You for Your precious time with me-even me!

I am deliciously treated when cup by cup I discover tastes, sights, sounds, that satisfy and leave me wanting more!

Thank You, Dear Lord, for our daily cups of joe together! Thank You for being with me as I sit with You; learn from You; enjoying our time together; looking forward to a new dawn, a new morning, a conversation I desire, crave, drink in with expectations I know will surprise, delight, and fill my cup to overflowing!

 

The 23rd Psalm  International Children’s Bible

The Lord is my shepherd.
    I have everything I need.
He gives me rest in green pastures.
    He leads me to calm water.
He gives me new strength.
For the good of his name,
    he leads me on paths that are right.
Even if I walk
    through a very dark valley,
I will not be afraid
    because you are with me.
Your rod and your shepherd’s staff comfort me.

You prepare a meal for me
    in front of my enemies.
You pour oil of blessing on my head.
    You give me more than I can hold.
Surely your goodness and love will be with me
    all my life.
And I will live in the house of the Lord forever.

Every Day with Jesus is Sweeter than the Day Before 

Author: Robert Claire Loveless

Every day with Jesus
Is sweeter than the day before
Every day with Jesus
I love Him more and more.
Jesus saves and keeps me
And He’s the one I’m waiting for.
Every day with Jesus
Is sweeter than the day before.
