I Wish People Would ..... - Coffee & Conversation

If you are a regular reader here or have stopped by my blog a few times then you may well know how much I Love Coffee & Chocolate.

Well at the moment I'm trying to cut down on the chocolate but ....  well not so much on the coffee.

I enjoy a large mug of coffee to sit and sip on when I'm checking my emails and sorting my ToDo lists in the morning & you also probably know how much I Love Lists and depend on them.

I do a lot of reading which is another Coffee Break Time and a lot of thinking so I thought I might do a new series on 

where I just talk a little about what is on my mind.

Today I'm starting with some things that  "I Wish"  about people.

I often WISH that I could recognise how all the people I meet are feeling so that I can understand them better.

So I PRAY that God will help me to understand people better and that He will help me do all those things I have mentioned in my little rant above.

Do you wish this about people? 

Do you pray this about yourself? 


Your Next Coffee Break - A Dose of Encouragement

Easter time two years ago.

I had 3 large Galaxy bars of chocolate which were almost out of date and I didn't know what to do with them.

Gee what a problem!!

               Eat them of course.

 But not when we were trying to lose weight & cut down on cholesterol.


My friend had called round the day before.

                Maybe I should have given them to her?

                                But wasn't it bad for her health too?

Maybe I should have taken them to the kids in our small Sunday School Class?

But they had already got lots of Easter Eggs from everywhere they went and should they really be eating too much chocolate?

 I know they were too young to be disciplined enough not to tuck in quickly to any chocolate they get.

Is it a sin to throw out chocolate?

                                           I don't think so.

                                                             But did I have the willpower to do it?

                                                                                       Yes, they went into the bin!

My will power is not always this good with chocolate, is yours?

There are lots of other things in our lives that we really need to throw out but ??????????

There are things that clutter our homes.

Then there are also things that clutter our minds.

These can be very difficult to get rid of.

But as a Child of God we are not alone and when we take the first steps to decluttering our minds so that they are freer to concentrate on

the Bible Study we have been planning to start into for months,

                or the one we have started and not continued with

                                or the extra time we had planned to take to pray;

God will be ready to meet with us.

God will be ready to meet with us

Yes it is us that have the cluttered minds and are not ready.


My will power is not always this good, is yours?

So let me offer a little suggestion to help us get started and throw out some of this clutter from our minds.

Instead of grabbing a novel, or an ipad or even your phone when you are having your mug of coffee or tea in the middle of the morning or afternoon,

why not

Make your next coffee break time for you & God
