Spiritual Coffee

January 8

The best part of waking up …..  I’ll bet everyone can finish that phrase.  I know it by heart; some of us probably get up humming it in the morning as we smell the coffee brewing or take that first sip.  Folgers came up with a great jingle, didn’t they?   We do love our coffee.  It gets our day going, helps set the tone for the day.

Maybe we should add just a small spiritual jingle to our morning routine to get us in the right spiritual mindset for the day.  I’m thinking back to my childhood and realize that my dad had his own little jingle that started his day off right.

It was what must have been one of his favorite Bible verses, ‘This is the day the Lord has made let us rejoice and be glad in it.’ Psalm 118:24.   He would say this verse at the beginning of each radio program he aired and many times at the beginning of a church service.  As I look back, I think he was trying to model something without saying it.  I think he was trying to say:  start the day off reminding yourself who made the day and determine to have joy and be glad.

So, every time you put the coffee pot on in the morning, let it be a reminder to not only hum the coffee jingle, but to quietly or loudly say this spiritual jingle as well.  It will be kind of a spiritual coffee to help set the tone for our day. 

Here’s to joyful, glad days beginning with a cup of coffee and reminding ourselves that this is the day the Lord has made.
