A Special Message to me...♥

We have a neat little coffee shop in town where one can go and get a refreshing drink.  They sell a wide variety of coffees and teas.  My favorite thing to order is a coconut sweet tea.  I just pull up to the drive thru window and a couple minutes later I have in my possession a generously sized cup full of yummy goodness.

Oh it's so good. The cup is so large I usually can't finish it in one afternoon.  I just throw it in my refrigerator and the next day I finish it off.  But you see...
what makes it oh so special is not so much what is inside the cup...
but what is on the outside of the cup.

What is unique about this shop is that they hand write a scripture verse on all the lids.  Each lid has a different verse so if you were to go in with a group of friends, each of you would receive a different scripture.  I like to think about it as a special message just for me.  I'm always eager to open up my cell phone and look up my verse.  

My message read the following:

Sometimes in the hustle and bustle of everyday life we tend to forget the importance of Gods word.  He gave it to us for a reason.  He wants us to treasure his word and keep it close to our heart so that in whatever situation we find ourselves in we are then able to have the correct reaction and response.

It should be my prayer everyday that I may respond with love and not anger...

with compassion and not judgement...

with a soft answer and not a harsh tone.

May I repay rudeness with kindess...

selfishness with generosity.  

These are the things that I think about when I reach for my drink.  I see the letters and numbers on my cup and my thoughts immediately shift to these things.  It's like a mini devotion that plays in my head all day long.  

So thank you quaint little shop with the neat idea.  Thank you for the little reminders of what's important.  Thank you for putting those healing thoughts in my mind.  Thank you for giving me a prayer that I can carry with me throughout my day.

Sometimes it's the little things that make all the difference.
