For Coffee Drinkers

Taste and see that the Lord is good.
Psalm 34:8

In "A Box of Delights", J. John and mark Stibbe share this hilarious article. "You know you're addicted to coffee when:

You're employee of the month at the local coffee house and you don't even work there...your eyes stay open when you sneeze...you chew on other people's fingernails...you can type 60 words per minute with your feet...you can jump start your car without cables...you don't sweat, you percolate...you've worn out the handle on your favourite coffee mug...you walk 20 miles on your treadmill before you realise it's not hooked up...you've worn the finish off your coffee table...you're so wired, you pick up radio signals...your birthday is a national holiday in Brazil...you'd be willing to spend time in a Turkish prison...you go to sleep just so you can wake and smell the coffee...you name your cats 'Cream and Sugar'...your lips are permanently stuck in the sipping position...you have a picture of your coffee mug on your coffee mug...you don't tan you roast...you don't get mad you get steamed...your coffee mug is insured by Lloyd's of London...you introduce your spouse as your coffee mate...you think CPR stands for 'coffee provides resuscitation'...you ski uphill...you get a speeding ticket when parked...you haven't blinked since the last lunar eclipse...you just completed another sweater and you don't even know how to knit.

The Bible says, "Taste and see that the Lord is good." Here's an idea. Why not turn your coffee break into a time with God. Carry a "Scripture for Today" with you. Meditate while you sip, talk to God while you savor. Doing this could transform your spiritual life!

I like a good cup of coffee but I'm certainly not addicted to it!

Laughing out loud!!!! This was grand! Though I'd rather have a cup of tea, spending time with the Lord while enjoying it is a wonderful idea! Have a great day! Cathy

That was a lot of fun. As an addict, I can vouch for the truth of this.

It's a good idea for the cup of coffee. I was thinking about a dish of spaghetti, but perhaps it would be a wrong note!
Have a very nice weekend! :-)
