Prayer Quote

“I pray because I can't help myself. I pray because I'm helpless. I pray because the need flows out of me all the time- waking and sleeping. It doesn't change God- it changes me.”
― C. S. Lewis


I believe in the sun even when it's not shining. I believe in love even when I don't feel it. And I believe in God even when He is silent. (quote found on the wall of a concentration camp)

I don't like Starbucks. Sorry. I just think that coffee is bitter and harsh tasting.
I do like grinding my own beans, preferably Free Trade Kona type coffee. Oh my, it is smooth and gentle.

I usually drink my coffee black, but sometimes I add vanilla while brewing, or sprinkle with cinnamon.

What are some of your fun coffee tricks? I need some ideas. :)

BTW- Sarah drinks 1/4 cup of coffee with 3/4 cup of milk every a.m. to calm her down. :)

Mom, try something other than coffee! Their coffee is nasty. Yucky! I get the tea, as you know, and it is so smooth and delicious!

Have you tried Dr Pepper? It's so yummy. Put 10/10 DP and 0/0 coffee. You can add vanilla if you like. It is good that way, too!

I put a few shakes of salt over the grounds, takes out any bitter taste. :-)

My current favourite is to poor my coffee over a glass full of ice. Then I add an eighth of a cup of flavour syrup (french vanilla may be nice) and a little bit of milk. Yu-um!
