Morning Coffee - The Routine of Life

"Be thou there till I bring thee word" (Matt. 2:13)
"Oh restless heart, that beat against your prison bars of circumstances, yearning for a wider sphere of usefulness, leave God to order all your days. Patience and trust, in the dullness of the routine of life, will be the best preparation for a courageous bearing of the tug and strain of the larger opportunity which God may some time send you."

It’s good to remember that our routine circumstances have a purpose and that patience and trust are the key to serving that purpose.  Time for a second cup of coffee and a reflection on the routine ahead of me today.



  1. Good thing to be reminded of, during the "cabin fever" period of a long and lingering winter!

  2. 'leave God to order all your days..' I'll be thinking about that more intensely today. Off to get my mid-morning cup of - something - tea, perhaps!

  3. I have missed you, dear Sandy! Being on the road made me long for the routine of home!

    Are you in snow or rain today??
