Can I pour you a cup of coffee?

Coffee, Coffee, Coffee. I like coffee. It is on my mind to write about the dark elixir of the Coffea arabica and Coffea canephora seeds.

Coffee machines are lovely and all. However, when I am desperate, I put the filter in the drip container, slap it on my mug, boil water, pour, and hope for the best – it tastes the same to me!

Apologies to the more refined sensibilities of the aficionados, and baristas out there who, are now cringing in incredulous dismay at such … sacrilege. Sorry about that! πŸ™‚

And yes you see correctly, the lid “dangly thingy” part of my travel mug is held together by scotch tape! And, What of it! It works  just fine. After all, I can tell my mug from everyone else’s in the office. I’m not sensitive at all— its a fact. I can too have coffee in a less than perfect mug. I see no reason to buy a new one. Oh wait…maybe I am just a tiny bit sensitive about that mug. Or, I just need another cup of coffee πŸ™‚

Things don’t have to be perfect to be enjoyed. Allow yourself the grace to be you, mistakes, imperfections and all. They are, all together wrapped up in the beautiful package, called you. You are “fearfully and wonderfully made” (Psalms 139:14). Cheers.

  1. Love this! I’m not picky about coffee — it’s the aroma I think I enjoy more than the taste. πŸ™‚ And sometimes, you gotta do what you gotta do! I love that you’re protective of your mug. You’re absolutely right, it does its job well. A wonderful reminder that not everything has to be shiny and perfect to be of value. Have a great day.
