The Bible, Snow and Blueberry Coffee

by Weam Namou

Holy Bible

I’ve been really enjoying the church sermons on Sundays. Today I thought this verse particularly interesting.

2 Timothy 3:1-5
But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, 4 treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people.

Before the Super Bowl, I took a half hour walk outside even though it was snowing. The air was crisp, the sky was grey and there were small lanterns placed in some of the neighbors’ front yards. There were distant dog barks, but no animals or people were in sight. I later went to Kinko’s to get files for classes I’m enrolled in printed and afterwards walked to the next door Seven Eleven. A large coffee maker marked blueberry caught my eye. It was empty. The cashier said he could make a new pot for me, it would only take a minute. Then he offered to sell me a bag of Arabica blueberry flavored coffee, which makes at least a pot or more, for 99 cents.

“Can I have two?” I asked.

He easily agreed and I returned home. My husband wanted to bet on the Super Bowl. He’d made a comment earlier that Baltimore would win, so I asked, “Which uniform color is that?”

“The white and navy,” he said.

“Then I pick Baltimore.” He picked the other team. I won $500. But I’m going to ask for an exchange. I want to have three days off from doing housework.

It was a pleasant day. Amen.
