I love getting to know people better. I love sitting down with someone and hearing all that is in their heart. I want to be more intentional this year about meeting with people.
I would like to have at least one coffee date with a friend, every two weeks. I originally said every week, but my husband told me to be practical and make it every other week. I love that man. It doesn't have to be coffee by the way, it can be just hanging out at my house, going to the park, whatever.
If you and I were to have coffee. First off, as always, I wouldn't get coffee. It is cold here (finally!) so I would probably get a peppermint hot cocoa. I would ask for them to go light on the chocolate sauce, cause I don't like to drink strait chocolate sauce when I get to the last three sips.
We would sit somewhere in the back, where it isn’t so noisy and we could just chat. I would daydream about a coffee shop that had a fireplace, but then remember that this is the South and it is cold here, like 5.6 days out of the year, so a fireplace just isn't practical.
I would ask how you are doing and listen intently as you share your heart with me. I might offer some words of excitement, encouragement or just listen.
I would tell you that I am struggling right now to find my purpose in ministry. I haven't been very involved in church in a while and it is on my heart to get involved. I just don't know where. So I feel stuck.
I would ask you what you are reading in Scripture or if you are reading Scripture. If you aren't a Christian, I would ask you about your thoughts on Jesus Christ. I wouldn't pressure or push, I would just be curious about what you believe. Everyone believes something about Jesus Christ, I would love to know your thoughts.
I might share with you what I believe. That is, if you wanted to know. If not, then I might change the subject and tell you that I have finally lost my baby weight. I guess six months is truly the magic number.
We might make small talk and then, our butts would get sore and we would depart.
That is, if we had coffee together. Maybe one day…
