Coffee Spills

What I hear and see and think about at the coffee shops I patronize.
Brisk. Fresh. Well-balanced. Occasional nutty and bittersweet overtones.

Jeremiah 29:11 prayer

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." I said this to myself as a prayer for a young woman I met in the coffee shop. I thought perhaps she was in high school, but she told me she was finished with college. “What field are you going into?” I asked. “Oh, I don’t know. I’ll probably start looking next week.” “So nothing you took in college really piqued your interest?” I said. “Not really, I sort of liked business administration so maybe I’ll work in an office.” College is usually 4, sometimes 5 years. If she started as the recession hit in 2007-2008 maybe she found it easier to borrow money than go to work? Or, maybe her parents are wealthy.
