On The Mend-Coffee Time

Can you guess where I am now? If you said the coffee shop, you would be correct. I made it out for a while after being cooped up for most of the week I am finally on the mend and have a it of energy. But I am so behind on my blog and fellow bloggers after a week of mostly only laying in bed. It is time to catch up.

This week will be warmer in my area. I know that others in my state like Alicia of forhispurpose.blog have a lot of snow that needs to melt away, but not in my city. It will be in the 50f/10c most of the week or a bit warmer. That amounts to a heat wave in these parts. Brenda of becominghistapestry.com is loving the winter weather in her area. How is winter in your area? I hesitate to ask because I know that Gary of garyfultz.com thrives on winter, ice fishing, etc. Then there is David of davidsadailydose.org who lives in southern climate and misses out on all of the fun. He is probably enjoying a picnic today. 🙂

Just giving shout outs to a few friends.

Back to my coffee outing. I must still be a bit spacey because guess who forgot to bring his wallet? Yes I did. I must have something like frequent flyer miles because the barista told me not to worry and let me have a cup with a refill free of charge saying that I am in here a lot.

I was thinking today about memories. We all have those memories we beat ourselves up with of past failures and sins. There are two verses that come to mind that I think should shape how we talk to ourselves.

Hebrews 8:12 says:


“For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more.”

If God does not remember our sins against us, why beat ourselves up for past failures. Learn from them yes, but let the memories of them drag us down, NO.

Hebrews 6:10 says:

 “God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them.”

What God does remember are the work we do and love we show in his name towards others. This shows me what we should focus on-the here and now and living for Jesus letting God take care of those memories.

It feels good to be at my coffee shop and to have the tangible reminder about memory. Maybe it is a good thing that I forgot my wallet. 🙂

Thank you for reading. God Bless.

  1. Matt, glad you are feeling better. You will continue to improve. Kudos to the barista for covering your coffee. May you enjoy the warmer weather and have innumerable blessings!

  2. Ahh shout out back to you!! Yes we still have snow needing to melt on our end if the state but I saw we have a low 50s day in the forecast yaaa!! Enjoy your warmer days!!

    Glad you’re feeling better!! Drink a cup of coffee for me, hasn’t been settling with me very well the past year-ish so I’ve had to quit 👎🏼

  3. We had wall-to-wall sunshine here today and the high was 65 degrees Fahrenheit. Picnic weather is right! A dude passed me on a motorcycle 🏍️ wearing a tee shirt. 😳

    Matt feels well enough to return to the “office.” This is a good sign! That’s funny about your wallet. You bring them so much business, a complimentary coffee ☕️sounds fair to me.

    Stay well, brother!

  4. Glad you can make it to the shop Matt. You called the weather it looks like. I am planning some ice fishing today as a front is moving in, snowing and that usually triggers the fish to do a run on the grocery store in their favorite weed bed.

      1. I pull a flip over popup with the atv that makes a tent for two people built into a sled.
        The road to the lake is all snow covered so I can hook up and be fishing in 15 minutes after stepping out of our house. From fishing in the popup I can watch the fish come in and bite(or not bite) in the clear water under the ice

  5. Matt, it is great to see you out and about. The coffee shop is an awesome place to catch up a bit. Our weather looks very similar to yours. In reference to your testament, I am reminded of this saying, Let go, Let God.”

  6. Even for Ga., our weather has been rather warm this season. They say we need the cold, and snow to kill our bugs. I hope we don’t have an abundance of bugs this summer. Take care, Matt.
