Vienna Roast

The mid-morning sun breathed warm streaks of light that highlighted a wisp of her smile. Seated on an old cedar porch swing, the sole of her gold T-strapped sandal glides through the wooden floor. Her body feels the gentle kiss of the wind that gives her cold jitters. She takes her last sip of Vienna roast in her red frosted mug, savoring the lingering taste of coffee on her tongue.

Her smile melted into a frown as her eyes looked down on the empty mug. She remembers how thrilling it was to create the perfect roast using the last handful of beans she had but only after her last sip did she find out that something went wrong in between. It didn't complete the first crack, and there was no way she could redo the process using the same beans again.

The Wonder Human

To be human has its complexities and frailties. It almost feels natural to succumb to life's struggles and disarray, that we tend to forget how God has made us to be filled with wonder. . . and this blog aims to create vivid reminders of what we should never lose, what we should continually celebrate, what we should seek, in every musing, experience, milestone, chapter, and blessing.

Psalms 139:14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.

Job 5:9 He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed, miracles that cannot be counted.

Psalm 71:17 Since my youth, God, you have taught me, and to this day I declare your marvelous deeds.
