Hello dear friend, how splendid to see;
Will you have some coffee with me?
Perhaps we can stop in this quaint café
And chat this morning away.
It is such a beautiful morning
With a brilliant sunrise streaking the horizon.
Oh, you are having a cappuccino today?
I think I’ll try a mocha latte.
Yes, I do enjoy the warm coffee
When the autumn air is brisk and chilly.
So what is new with you?
Busy at work? Oh, yes, me too.
While at my job, each day is so different
And quite often it does not go as planned.
Some days are being difficult, you say?
I hope things get better; I will pray.
I must admit that I struggle too
And sometimes I don’t know what to do.
Why do we have to struggle so much?
All seems well then suddenly I’m overwhelmed and rushed.
You sometimes feel that way also?
How do you deal with that? How do you cope?
I worry too much and fret the day away.
Yes, you’re right; I need to pause and pray.
Yes, you’re right again; I need to slow down.
I need to stop, listen to God, and again be calm.
Why yesterday is a perfect example;
I complained about the rain and missed the rainbow.
I saw the arching, colorful bow later on-line;
A photo taken by a friend of mine.
Oh yes, it was too bad that I let myself worry
And then miss a blessing, God had for me.
Today will be different; I promise to try.
I’ll trust God more and enjoy the sunshine.
Thank you dear friend for having coffee with me;
Because of you, I’ve had a wonderful morning.
Got my coffee cup right here! You’re right. We all need to take time to enjoy the rainbows of life.
