Figuring Out Life at Starbucks…


Yesterday, it was rainy and cold and blah.

My part-time job takes about 3-4 hours during the morning.  Then I’m free till it’s time to pick up the kids from school.

So Starbucks has become my hang out.  It’s close to my kids’ school and they have, of course, the life-sustaining beverage of choice–coffee!

The last few weeks I’ve been trying to figure things out in my life.  Ya know, the usual, what to do, where does God want me, etc.

I know I need to write.  But what?

I know I need to find a different job.  But what?

I know I need to change my diet.  (Finally figured this one out last night after weeks of wishy-washy-ness).

Well, at least I know some things.

And, luckily for me, God knows the rest.  I just need to trust in Him to put my footsteps where they need to fall.

Thank God, right?

  1. I just got back from Kinkos where I am getting a book made with my 22 poems. I can relate to what you are feeling. The guy working on my book at Kinkos got sick so it gave me time to make some corrections and add another poem. I feel the hand of God at work.

    Why is it so hard to just trust Him, He has proven Himself to me so many times. It really bothers me that I don’t trust 100%. It makes me feel like my faith is not what it should be?

    What can I say, I am human with all it’s flaws. I know His grace is greater than my failings.

    Atoz, He has given you this wonderful mission that is helping so many of us. You are so blessed and you are right on “God knows the rest”.

  2. Can’t tell you how many “i know i” I have on my list. Sometimes i sigh and plead God can’t you please just send me a letter.

  3. I do believ that you ‘trust and obey”
    the more we know the more we don’t know
    knowing you will be ok in your heart
    has always been my comfort
    and I ‘have been blessed”
    so far anyway
    glad I am not “Job” though
    however I am confident I can face whatever comes , with my Faith , I am ok
    it is VERY Personal though isn’t it
