Coffee.

Nice post, Christian, on "unconditional" love. I love being reminded that God doesn't accept me and just leave me where I am, which would actually turn out to be a pretty miserable state of affairs.

Here is just a reminder to be careful when you combine blogging and coffee.

Just loving it!
I have two cups of coffee a day, thanks to my "pusher" Kristy.
She has "cut down her intake" sooooo many times. You would think her consumption would be nil by now...I'm still counting two pots a day for her!
Ha!

That is so misleading Jan.....I never pushed you.....you wanted it, and asked for. You know you love coffee and you can't blame your addiction on me.

***subliminal message****drink coffee***subliminal message***

Coffee is a wonderful thing, especially first thing in the morning. Love it. Kristy

...and the second thing, and then the third thing, and...you get the idea! ;-)

Actually, I quit coffee all the time. Between pots. After all, you have to quit at least momentarily while you wait for the next batch of beans to roast.

The beans in the picture which I posted were fresh out of the roaster last night...let me tell you, if you like coffee, you will LOVE home roasted coffee.

Did I mention it's cost effective? A wise investment for ministry purposes? A great outreach tool?

I've got all the angles covered...

So you found your way here Kristy.
I'm not so sure you should listen to this guy. Sounds like he has the same monkey on his back that you do.
I wonder...is there a 12 step program for those with your problem. I'll have to look into that.
Remember, the first step is admitting you have a problem. (and I know you won't)
Kristy, I didn't go looking for coffee...You brought it into my pure world of tea.
You're both a hoot!!!
Jan
Oh, by the way Christian, Kristy is my lovely daughter-in-law, and my best friend. (that is if she'll come home and fix me some coffee)
God Bless...As He always does.

Hi Jan! (everyone say hi to Jan! She's new addition to our little "community")

I'm sure we can come up with a 12 step program that will have you back on your feet in no time! Let's see...

1. Get beans. LOT's of beans. 15 or 20 bounds should last you for at least a couple of weeks.

2. Get a coffee roaster. One of those 7.3 liter turbo-diesel models, for, um, "power and efficient roasting" (yeah, that's it).

3. Roast coffee beans. There are actually about 30 gazillion different shades of roasting, so you're going to have to try them all, in order to figure out which roast provides the optimal "transition out of dependency"

4. Now, start brewing your coffee. Hey, you started a timer back in step 1, right? Look at that! You have been "clean" for nearly 23 minutes! WHOA NELLIE! Let's not rush things here! Might trigger withdrawal symptons, cancer, psychosis, menopause, and who knows what else!

Better drink that pot we brewed just to make sure we keep things under control! Just remember Jan, self-control is a good thing here, and we are all very self-controlled (see how steady my hands aaarrreee???)...

5. Ooh, look at that, we're low on beans! Better roast some more (see step 1)...

How am I doing so far? Dang, I think I really ought to write a book or something...

Wow. That's all I can say: wow. I had no idea that a simple "net disaster" could have the potential to prompt SO MUCH DISCUSSION about the joys of coffee.

I just read this great book for a counseling class. It's called "Addictions" ...

Ok Christian,
Where are the other seven steps?
You say that you ought to write a book...I think you are a book.
Do ya recon Jesus drank coffee?
Let's make this a focus of prayer today, then we'll confer.
Sooooooo much to say about coffee!!!
Wonder what that means?
Jan
