I love to sit here and always know that your simple taste brings me joy. The warmth that each sip brings, comforts me in such a reassuring way. My soul loves you, coffee. For the things that are attached to you. The taste, the culture, the community and the people that surround you. I feel alive. It could be the caffeine. Saturdates with you, coffee feels right. It feels like home. If I could sit here all day with you, I would. I think I really love you.
My spirit loves Saturdays, for the day has no pressures or expectations of me. I love to sit here at a busy cafe, put on headphones and get lost in a sweet presence I know. I feel God on my Saturdates with Coffee, sometimes even more than Sundays at church. Weekly, I anticipate the joys of Saturday mornings with coffee in this sweet presence. I'm so satisfied.
I see a child playing with his dad, and many different owners walking their dog-babies. I spy strangers catching glances of each other. I spy some really cool-looking people that want to be seen. I notice different kinds of families and friends. Today I noticed a couple, probably newly dating each other, proudly, yet extra-conscious and awkwardly holding hands. I spy curiosity, envy, admiration, and a desire to connect or be seen. I sense a tension between satisfaction and a desire for more. An emptiness and fullness at once. To the stranger walking past me, I see you. You're noticed. I wonder what your life is like. I wonder who you are and who you desire to be.
Saturdays come and go, but the sweet feeling of coffee on Saturdays in His sweet presence gives me strength for the week. It refreshes my spirit and weekly, I download new revelations, new dreams, and peace. I stare at new faces, I notice new types of people, and see new beauty. Diversity sometimes divides us, but I love this feeling of unity and togetherness that makes us all human. Especially on Saturdates with coffee. A lot of times I get caught staring because I'm not a very subtle people-watcher. But it's okay, haha. I enjoy this simple blessing of life. I'm thankful to enjoy this beautiful morning and afternoon with a coffee in the stillness of your presence. I peacefully anticipate how each Saturday brings a new depth, comfort, and rest. Saturdates with Coffee help me to remember the simple joys of life - to always be thankful and not take life too seriously. I love my Saturdates with Coffee.
