I’m linking up with Lecy today from https://asimplergrace.blogspot.com/ for a coffee date post.
If you and I met for coffee, I’d choose a quiet coffee shop with delicious scones dripping with jam and fresh cream.
After we’ve placed our orders I’d tell you that I cannot believe how quickly this year is going and how winter is actually flying. Years ago, I’d complain about the cold and wish spring would arrive but this year I’ve embraced the cold and (with the help of my thermal spencers and a warm new jacket) I’m enjoying the season. Plus we need the rain so badly. When I think of the dam levels last year this time compared to now, I’m grateful (as always) for each downpour!
Our coffee would arrive and I’d ask how you’ve been, what you’ve been up to. If you are also finding that your energy levels are less in winter and working out takes a bit more effort! I’d tell you that I’m making my gym time a priority this week as I’ve been feeling stressed the last few days and a good sweat session often helps with my worrying or overthinking. There is so much in life that one cannot control and right now I’ve got a big concern which I just have to pray about. Handing over control and trusting that what is “meant to happen will happen” is not always easy but in this case I’m literally standing back and giving it over to God to guide the way.
We’d tuck into our scones (strawberry jam is my favourite) and we’d talk about weekend plans (even though it is only Monday). Having something to look forward to can brighten a day instantly.
I’d tell you that I’ve got my reading groove back (it went missing in June but returned after a short break!) Funny how we go through reading cycles.
We’d finish our coffee, settle the bill and make our way into the winter sunshine. Next time you choose the place!
