// I inhale deeply as I encounter my first whiff of freshly ground coffee in the middle of a hectic day. The scent of calm. With just one smell my soul begins to quiet and slow down its frantic rush to produce. It’s time to stop for a moment and breath. To relax my cramped brain and ponder something of interest, something of beauty. To become aware again of the world beyond my to-do list and narrow perspective. To remember my smallness and the bigness of the One who holds me in the palm of His hand. I recall the meme that “proved” the existence of magic by naming coffee the magic bean that brings us back to life every morning, and I chuckle because the humor of it lies in its resemblance to real life. (Isn’t that resemblance the nature and power of humor?) A simple pleasure, but when I brew a cup of coffee I often brew a deeper awareness of LIFE. //
