More than coffee…

Each and every day we go through routines in life –  in family, in work and in fact… in almost every single area of our life.

Some of these routines are daily, weekly, monthly or some even longer interval routines. It is these routines where we often find ourselves years later wondering what happened and how we got to where we find ourselves at that point. This really shouldn’t surprise us when we have continued to do what we have always done and somehow expected something different to come of it. It really shouldn’t be a shock at all.

Why is it we do that? The same things day after day, week after week, year after year. Fear of change? Fear of failure? Fear of higher demands? Fear of greater rewards? “Yes” to all of the above.

Just the other day I was feeling so overwhelmed as I was working late in the evening in the Roastery. I felt like there was SO much to do and so LITTLE time to get it all done. Life. Family. Work. Everything just seemed so much at that moment in time. There was coffee to bag. Coffee bags to label. Stuff to pack to take to this place. Stuff to pack to take to that place. Then I just had to stop for a moment and think. It was in that short pause that I was reminded.

It was almost as though God said, “Wait! Remember why you are doing this! It’s not the coffee. It’s so much more.”

Honduras House PlansThat’s what this picture is about. (I know the picture is in the posting twice but I want you to be able to click on it and see the drawing. Go ahead and do it.)

It is so much more than coffee. It’s about making a difference. It’s about making a difference in my kids as they grow up. It’s about them knowing they can find and do something they love in life. It’s about making a difference in the community. It’s about connecting people and building relationships in McDonough. It’s about making a difference in Honduras. It’s about building houses for missionaries and bringing water to the thirsty. It’s about making a difference in some child’s face as we can bring laughter and happiness and hope to them that maybe they’ve never seen before. It’s about taking my family there to do it all together. That’s what all this is about.

It’s not about the coffee…but it is somehow.

Coffee –  that’s just the tool we have been blessed to be able to use to do what we do. Thank you for being a part of it!
