Join me for Coffee Talk with Jesus – Turbo!

Last month I was blessed and surprised to receive  my very own, signed copy of Coffee Talk with Jesus- Intimate Chats with the Savior by Barbie Swihart. I won a copy during the book launch giveaway she held at her blog-Hooray for giveaways! Having gotten to know Barbie, over the past few years, through blogging and also in her position of Managing Editor at 5 Minutes for Faith, has allowed me to enjoy her friendship, leadership and mentoring all online! Imagine the joy of Jesus, when His own kiddos use the internet resources available to glorify Him in these ways! 
This devotional is a gentle invitation to ease your way into an intimate time of fellowship with Jesus, right now. It is a 31 Day Devotional, but I am proposing that you can read through it at your own pace, or like me- two readings a day, finishing up by the month’s end. I checked Amazon today, and the Kindle version is just 3.99*, while the paperback is 8.09* (If you have Prime, shipping is free).
Well, the best way to enjoy a good book, aside of snuggled up in your comfiest PJ’s and favorite reading spot – with a cup of something hot, is to know that you can share your favorite parts, and reflections with a friend as you go, or when you finish!

On January 31st, we will gather here for a very special time…“Coffee Time with Barbie”! We will share insights, reflections and any thoughts we had about the book, or reading, right here on the blog -via the comments.

This devotional readings are short and grace-filled reminders of God’s presence, faithfulness and love, followed by some questions for you to ponder, pray and reflect upon. Also included are a few lines for your own thoughts, responses, and prayers. Consider it a turbo shot of espresso for your faith this January- deliciously perfect for sipping slowly, and enjoying with a friend.
Oh, and for those who love coffee, there are some wonderful coffee infused recipes for you to try! 
I hope you will grab the book, or if you already have it -join me for two readings a day, or reading as you feel led. Also, there will be a special additional surprise on the 31st. No, I can’t tell you what it is, because it’s a surprise. Silly! 
*Prices subject to change- as you know. I am not an Amazon Affiliate as they do not allow RI residents to be affiliates at this time. Boo! However, I do enjoy Prime membership. Please check your favorite bookseller for availability! 
Love this kind of mail!

Blind-spots (5 Minute Friday: See)

Well, it is time for 5 Minute Friday hosted by The Gypsy Mama, herself, Lisa -Jo Baker. Jumping back in for the first time in 2014- I missed the first gathering of this year because each First Friday of the month Recovering Church Lady and I host our own small gathering of writing friends called Random Journal Day! Feeling a little rusty, but here we go…the prompt is SEE:

I’m barely awake, rubbing sleep from my eyes. I’ve been wondering lately what it is I need to see that I’m not seeing. What is it, Lord, that I’m missing. What do I need to learn that I’m not getting?
But, I do believe I am starting to see.
Because, everyone has blind-spots.
I don’t deny that I have mine.
Spiritual scars, scratches, and pits remain on the surface, yet still, I cling to my own understanding.
How long will it take to shed this skin?
How long before I really see?

I keep rolling around in circles…
Yet, I have access to the One who made blind men see.
I long for it to be me.
Feel free to rub the sleep out of your own eyes, and join in-
see you there!
Five Minute Friday
