This morning I took my close friend and brother in Christ, Craig and his mom for a meeting in Blouberg Strand. The meeting was held at a Cappuccino and Bistro Bar. Of course I was not going to pass up the opportunity to enjoy a coffee while waiting for Craig and his mom to finish their meeting.
I ordered myself a cappuccino and while waiting I took a look at the surroundings. Many thoughts started racing through my mind about my past when I was still abusing substances. I was thinking I would probably never have sat at a restaurant let alone buy myself a cup of coffee because every cent I had went to feed my drug addiction. Its been nearly 3 years since The Lord Jesus Christ saved my from a 9 year drug addiction, so now I’m free to enjoy the simple things that life has to offer.
My cappuccino arrived and I had one look at it and was thinking happy thoughts again. The happiest people don’t have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything! My encouragement to you is; live simply, speak kindly, care deeply and love generously. God bless!
