I absolutely love coffee…. Black, sometimes with cream. After a hard work-out or a long run, there are few things better than a Starbucks Frappacino. Every Sunday morning on the way to church we grab a cup. I could list 1000 ways to enjoy a cup of joe….

My favorite coffee is always with friends. This week I shared coffee with a new friend, new stories and getting-to-know-you’s. I had coffee with a mentor who listens and guides me. Add a snowman cookie and I had a chance to share coffee with an amazing woman preparing for ministry opportunities. I had coffee and talked about books and faith and laughed in ways that you only laugh with those closest to you.

I am grateful for coffee because it is the best excuse to meet up and invest in friends.
