A Coffee Break.....

If I weren't 59 years old and post menopausal,
I'd probably be rushing out to purchase a pregnancy test!

Now that I've peaked your curiosity.....
I've been having some tummy issues,
getting a bit nauseated in the early mornings and often after I eat.
The nausea hit a few weeks ago bright and early on a Monday morning.
I found that I couldn't stomach the thoughts of my morning coffee.....
so y'all know something HAD to be wrong.
I went without coffee that morning.....
and the next......
and the next.....
and here I am over 3 weeks later and still haven't had a "cup o' joe".

This was definitely not a conscious effort on my part to quit drinking coffee.
Besides, I've heard there are lots of health benefits from that dark, hot beverage.
But....
 what I enjoyed most about my coffee was the creamer and the sweetener. 
 I really couldn't even taste the coffee itself at all!!!

Sometimes it takes something "bad" (nausea).....
to show us things in our lives that ought not be there!!!

Romans 8:28 tells us.....
"And we know that ALL things work together for good to them that love God,
to them who are the called according to his purpose."

This little incident in my daily life made me ask the question of myself.....
"How many other things do I try to "sugar coat"?"
How often do I try to justify a wrong by prettying it up and calling it something other than it really is.....
SIN!!!

This was definitely "food for thought" for me.....
or should I say "drink for  thought"?


Hope y'all have a Terrific Tuesday!!!

Breathing in Jesus,

Deb
