Listen to the Words

I really don’t think that anyone can be fully aware of exactly what is happening while they are in the middle of the event. It is only long after the event is over that we can understand what took place and what the truth and ramifications of that event were.

Maybe It’s Time to Grow Up

In 1 Corinthians 13:11, Paul said, “ When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me.” Children hit, pinch and poke fun at one another, especially if they have siblings. Children will say things to another child with the intent to hurt or harm. Unfo ...

And you don’t like the idea of parking at one terminal when you leave, only to arrive at another terminal when you return, and then getting back to your departure terminal to pick up your car.

PICK-ME-UP

I finished my yard work and stripped for my shower. My old bones were aching. It was really a chore to mow the yard and take care of the lawn, especially in this hot Texas sun. The cooling waters were such a wonderful refreshment. I dried, dressed and prepared to relax in front of the television to watch the Cubs play ball. As I began to sit down, ...

THE EVOLUTION OF THE CUP

The preparation of that special cup of coffee has evolved over the years. In addition to the usual cup of coffee we loved and desired, thanks to specialty coffee shops, have we learned to love espressos, lattes, cappuccinos, mochas and more. But not only have the special coffees and the coffee shops that prepare them evolved, so has the equipment t ...

Grown at elevations of 4,900 to 6,800 feet on volcanic soils and wet-processed; the beans are harvested, immediately removed from the cherries, and washed to remove the excess pulp, leaving the coffee with a full body of flavor and a heavy acidity tha ...

EUROPEAN COFFEE

I love ice cream , as many of you do. And being a lover of ice cream, I am aware there is a difference in ice cream brands and flavors. I can start with vanilla ice cream and be satisfied with that, or I can add a topping such as chocolate or strawberries and nuts or whipped cream. Or I can select different flavors. Many producers add different ingr ...
