Monday Morning Coffee Chat

Monday again and not much happening.

Not going to complain, I really enjoy the peace of a 'do-nothing' week.


We had some bad weather come through on Friday night and lost power about 6:30 in the evening...what do you do without power?  No TV, no internet, no radio, no A/C, can't read and no hot coffee.  I thought I was going to have to get out my old stovetop perculator.  Desperate people do desperate things!! 

We decided to take a ride just to get out of the dark house....looking at the night lights around town was uplifting.  We talked about how people survived just fine before electricity came along and how spoiled we've become to 'new' technology. 

BTW, we stopped for coffee while we were out!!

I finally fell asleep on the couch, the house was getting stuffy and I was so uncomfortable.  It was great when the servicemen woke me up around one in the morning.  They must have been having a party in the alley behind my house, yelling back and forth at each other and the motors of the big trucks purring in the background.  They got the job done and power was on by 2am.  Needless to say, Mr D and I were happy! 

Our future granddaughter-in-law has returned from her mission trip to Haiti.  Here is what she posted on her facebook page...

Although I am back in the states, my heart is in Haiti. God has worked so many miracles over these past 10 days it is indescribable. God has showed me what pure happiness and love looks like. I loved Seeing the bright eyes and pure happiness of these children. It really is amazing how much love they have!

I can see her returning to Haiti again in the future.

From My Praise Journal

God has proven Himself as a faithful father.
Now it falls to us to be trusting children.

Around Town:

A new Whataburger is being built!  Exciting!!

Coffee Trivia:

It takes five years for a coffee tree to reach full maturity, coffee trees can live up to 100 years old
The average yield from one tree is the equivalent of one roasted pound of coffee.

On This Day:

1971 - In Prospect Creek Camp, Alaska the lowest temperature ever recorded in the U.S. was reported as minus 80 degrees.
brrrrr.....that's cold!!!

Ask ~ Given ~ Seek ~ Knock:

Ask and it will be given to you, Seek and you will find, Knock and the door will be opened to you.

Until Next Time
Live Life Joyously!

SonDay Scripture

Let the sun shine in, face it with a grin!
Open up your heart and let the Son shine in!


May your cup overflow today with love, peace, and topped with the sweetness of Joy.

John 14:6
 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life.  No one comes to the Father except through me.
