What I hear and see and think about at the coffee shops I patronize.
Brisk. Fresh. Well-balanced. Occasional nutty and bittersweet overtones.
If you got here from my profile, you probably need to visit my main blog, Collecting My Thoughts which is updated every day.

"That would be my dream," he smiled.

Bible study at Paneras

I saw a woman writing in her notebook and sifting through Bible texts by the fireplace today. "Doing Bible study?" I asked. "Yes," she replied. "It's 3 women and my class is tomorrow." "Are you at UALC" "No. [??] Methodist." UALC's Women of the Word is offering this video based study, "Anointed, Transformed, Redeemed: A Study of David," based on the teaching sessions with small group discussions of Beth Moore, Priscilla Shirer, and Kay Arthur

Crying babies, patient parents

Usually I don't approve of medicating hyperactive children, but today at the coffee shop there was a screaming wiggling running toddler, with 3 or 4 other quieter siblings. Maybe Mom could take something.

"My wife's first baby daddy . . . "

I didn't catch the rest, but did wonder how many more baby daddies his wife has, and how many would have ruined the relationship. Young people today. . .
