Warm drinks have a way of opening the mind to profound thoughts. They make you wonder why we want things in the extreme. It’s either hot or cold, never lukewarm. We don’t want the boring or the normal, we want the astounding and the new. Why? Can’t we be satisfied with what we have? When we are handed something, we say thanks, don’t we? Well, if God handed us our life, shouldn’t we be glad we got it, instead of “graciously declining” it or attempting to trade it for what we think would suit us better? The way our lives are is the way God made them, and I think the Creator of everything knew what he was doing. Just saying.
