Share a Cup of Morning Coffee With Me

My package arrived with my coffee from Joni at Morning Coffee! The aroma was wonderful as I opened it. It's so much fun to receive a gift. Thank you Joni!
My first pot is brewing!

Join me on my front porch, on this beautiful fall morning, for my first cup. Mmmm it's so good! Pour a cup and sit down for a spell.

Hmmm, while I'm enjoying my new coffee I think I'll spend a few moments pondering life and seeking God's wisdom. My next chapter in the Purpose Driven Life is about eternity. "This life is not all there is." "God has planted eternity in the human heart. " Ecclesiastes 3:11

Sometimes I wonder why I'm not more concerned with success in the world's eyes, and then I remember why my heart is changed, why I seek after different things . . .

"For us this is the end of all the stories. . . but for them it was only the beginning of the real story. All their life in this world had only been the cover and the title page: now at last they were beginning Chapter One of the Great Story, which no one on earth has read, which goes on forever and in which every chapter is better than the one before." C.S. Lewis, Chronicles of Narnia

So many things to think about, life is so much more than what I typically spend time worrying about. Each moment spent alone with God gives me a glimpse of eternity.

Even so, look at the beauty He has given us on this earth to enjoy for now.

Here's to you, my wonderful blog friends. Cheers!

You made me want to come join you! Did it taste yummy? On a different note. I would like to get your address if you don't mind giving it to me. You can just leave it in a separate comment and I just won't post it.
Thank you my friend.

I'm so glad you are enjoying your coffee...you made me feel like I was right there with you! This is a wonderful quote from C.S. Lewis, a nice reminder that there is so much more than what meets the eye. Your photos are terrific...I especially like the shadow one...I can't believe how defined it is.

Have a wonderfully sweet day my friend ~

hugs ~
