Manic Monday: More thoughts on coffee

Coffee amazes me. In dealing with some health issues last week it often came up the benefits of drinking what I affectionately call liquid love. Caffeine or not coffee is good stuff!

No doubt the best time to drink coffee is on Monday or Saturday mornings… One for the much needed warm embrace, the other to enjoy golden sun rays, kids playing in their pajamas, and fresh cooked french toast while still wearing a bathrobe.

We often look to big or thrilling events, but is this best? The weight of life is carried by the little things. Coveting breeds in the desire or focus for big things. We miss the little moments than can often leave a larger impact.

On the ‘Monday’ of all Mondays, God comforted Elijah. God placed him on cliff with the comment that He would pass by. After all these huge cataclysmic events, God was not there. And then a gentle breeze, a whisper, and God was there. A small thing.

Thank God for the little things like coffee!

Manic Monday: The little things…

As I work at my computer this morning, my youngest slept on my lap. A bad cold is bothering him. In these cases he just wants to be held or his back rubbed. These are little things. Little things make life worthwhile. They are seemingly insignificant, but leave the greatest impact.

So, as I rub my little guy’s back as he sleeps peacefully on my lap, I am reminded of the little things of life. Little things are the whispers of life. What specially little touch can you perform or enjoy today that makes Monday special? We need to enjoy the little things.

Manic Mondays: The little things

Sunday was a mess. Jadon was, well, having a bad morning. He blurted clearly he wanted to stay home and not go to church. That was hard to hear. We went anyway. So, listening to him cry (I’m glad it was a short car ride), the prayer was a toy train would be there. It was a little thing that could meant all the world: To him and our sanity. The conversation went like this:

Jadon: I don’t want to go to church!
Mom: Look, there’s a Thomas table!
Jadon: Bye, mom!

Answered prayer is a great thing. Jadon learned songs, and he listened, and he played with his favorite toy. The table is a small thing, but it made a world of difference. Pray for the little things, not just the big things!
