a coffee date...


If we were on a coffee date, I would tell you that I just feel stuck in certain places. I mean S T U C K. And, it kind of sucks.

If we were on a coffee date, I would tell you that I have been having very vivid dreams lately. Last night, I woke myself up from laughing. The night before, I had a dream that I had to bust a window and climb out, and in that process I got a HUGE gash up my calf and was basically bleeding out. Awesome. Awesome thoughts.

If we were on a coffee date, we would probably joke about the red cup situation. Honestly, it just takes a handful of Christians to make us all look like a bunch of crazies. My favorite commentary thus far has been from Candance Cameron Bure and Ellen Degeneres; Ellen said these new red cups are practically "Satan Sippers" and I about fell out of my chair. 

If we were on a coffee date, I would ask you what God has been teaching you lately because I really want to know. It fascinates me how He teaches people different things at the same time. I would hope you would share your heart with me, the struggles and the joys.

If we were on a coffee date, I would tell you that I am actually excited for the holidays this year. Sometimes, I can be a real Grinch but you guys, I already can't wait to put up little things in my apartment, send out cards, and craft some stockings! 

If we were on a coffee date, we would talk about time and influence.

If we were on a coffee date, I would pull out my copy of "For The Love" by Jen Hatmaker and show you all the things I have highlighted. Jesus things, fashion things, hilarious things. This woman is my spirit animal in every single way.

If we were on a coffee date, we would talk about the idea of qualifiers and identity. You are qualified BECAUSE JESUS. Do not dismiss anything anytime anywhere because you think that you are not. 

If we were on a coffee date, I would tell you to watch THIS sermon series by Matt Chandler. It is pure gold! (Shout out to Chris Hardy for that one!)

If we were on a coffee date, what would you share?

  1. I came across your post on (in)courage and clicked over because 1) it was good writing but mainly 2) you mentioned not being married or being a mom. Aka, that is my life as well and it's so encouraging to find another blogger in the same boat. I just graduated college in May and life certainly doesn't look like what I had pictured/imagined. I've written several times about how it isn't bad, it just isn't what was expected, and so how will I live in the in between? If we could have coffee I would say thank you for writing in your in between.
