How would you describe your coffee or tea taste?

The town I live in is Newport News, Virginia in the United States.   The East end is the industrial area made famous for its military ship building.  Mid-city once farm land has developed into a commercial hub of office and medical centers, shopping areas, and many chain restaurants and the North end is residential and houses a large military base. 

Located in center city are a few coffee shops like Starbucks, Aroma’s and Panera Bread company. They are not like the quaint cafes that are found in small towns were everyone knows each other and will take time to sit and chat.

Here in my area of the world, coffee is the most popular drink.  I wonder is it the coffee the people enjoy or the many sweet additive ingredients that go into a coffee?  It is very rare I see someone drink their coffee black.  I like my coffee from fresh roasted beans brewed at the right temperature with nothing to cover that steamy aroma and taste.

As you guess I am of the older generation with some on-coming of arthritis, high blood pressure and high cholesterol.  As an alternative means to control these issues.  I enjoy a good hot tea such as ginger and lemon which helps with the aches in my knees and ankles.  Then roasted dandelion root that gently stimulates the liver.  Also, a good Earl Grey black tea to sip as I read a book.  My favorite tea is a green tea with hibiscus made with whole tea leaves steeped in a small teapot and poured into a china cup.

How would you describe your coffee taste?  Why is a certain tea better for you?

Legs ‘N’ Coffee like Legs in Fine Wine

I am at my local coffee shop reading my i-pad eating a bagel and sipping coffee.  I looked up and from the position of my table, I see a pair of long nude legs.  

One leg crossed over her other leg her feet wore black patent stiletto heels.  One foot makes a slow circular motion as to beckon me to come closer.  Her suntanned legs looked like a fine polished piece of furniture.  

Thoughtfully, I picked up my empty cup, paper napkins and went toward the trash receptacle.  As I came closer to her I thought I’d compliment her and say you have nice legs. Instead I asked, “ is this where I put my tray”?  With a hitch hikers wave her thumb pointed to the rectangular sign that read “Thank You”.  Hmmm! I wonder if she read my thoughts or pointed for me to empty my trash.

COFFEE

Remember when you said “I’d never forgive that person”. Then you’d sit there with a hot coffee, you’re steaming over the incident. With unsteady hands you grip the cup and lift it to your lips cautiously sipping the bitter taste. The smell of the coffee permeates the room as your mind replays the issue. As you gently set the cup to the table, you begin to take control.

The title of this post is C.O.F.F.E.E. Its acronym is:

Christ Offers Forgiveness for Everyone Everywhere

Un-forgiveness is like a stage four cancer, it will continue to eat and tear at you until you have no life. Un-forgiveness is a sin. The only cure for un-forgiveness is to forgive and ask the Lord to cleanse you of the sin.
He knows you won’t forget; but He knows you can forgive. Then a miracle happens, you begin to have joy, pleasure and peace of mind.

If you are not a believer, this is a quote by T.D. Jakes:
“I would rather live my life as if there is a God and die to find out there isn’t then live my life as if there isn’t and die to find out there is.”
