|Nothing smells better in the morning than a fresh pot of coffee in the kitchen. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage has it set so that at a certain time in the morning, the coffee begins brewing and we wake up to that wonderful aroma.|

One cup is as good as another cup. I am not the kind of person that discriminates about anything, especially coffee. Of course, if it is instant coffee, then I will discriminate. “I think,” she said very seriously, “that you are a coffeeholic.” That rather stunned me because I had never heard that word before. I am somewhat of a wordsmith and enjoy words and phrases, but this word, Coffeeholic, I had never heard before. At first, I thought maybe she was making it up. Upon a little bit of research, there is such a word. She was not finished with her little coffee chat, “I think you are drinking too much coffee and should consider cutting back a little bit. Caffeine isn't good for you.” I am not sure where all that came from, but I will “think” about what she just said. I do not plan to do anything about it, because I think she would not like to be around someone like me who has not had his coffee for the day. I have so many other things to think of, just like the apostle Paul said, “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things” (Philippians 4:8). This is what I am going to be thinking on, but not on cutting back on my coffee. Tweet
