God In My Cup

Colbie has become one of those "Occupy" folks. They protest, I don't even know what they really protest. The comments I've heard were so outlandish I changed the channel. Colbie has decided to become one of them. I'm not sure where her 'left sided-ness' comes from but it's starting to get rather annoying. All this demanding and 'give me' is becoming old.

The reason she is about to lose her protesting rights? She voices her opinions between the hours of 11:00pm and 5:00am. Those are quiet hours in a lot of cities including this one; Knox-ville.

With her late night antics, I have become rather tired in the morning. My normal routine would be make a big pot of coffee and drink every last bit through-out the day in order to function.

I've been coffee free for 8 days, 14 hours and 8 minutes. This is huge!!

This morning, I was tired, I was so tired I felt sick and I wanted a huge pot of coffee in order to make it. As I was wallowing in my lack of coffee misery, I was hit in the head with something.  My ability to have a cup of coffee in the morning had become my way of defining my mood. It became habit to make my coffee and not thank the Lord. I looked into my cup for happy feelings instead of God. Will I go back to coffee? YES! But I need to keep my happiness in God and not in my cup.

So I will 'rejoice in the Lord always' even when I don't get coffee and my kid becomes a Toddler-crat.
