Toast & Tea & 2 am

It’s 2 am and I finally decided to just get up and attempt to refocus my thoughts.  

Toast.  I’m beginning my third piece.  

Yep.  

I prefer mine simple, just butter, lightly toasted.   

Also, the state I’m in, the heels of the bread are my favorite.  

Tea.  Perhaps a cup of tea as well.  No fancy flavor, just decaf regular with a tad of sugar.


Pretty simple comfort food huh?

Plain seems to be the theme as I examine my comforts in time of need.  There’s one more.  The one this notebook sits upon as I write my thoughts. 

(sounds like a “foundation” doesn’t it?)  


My Bible.

There was a time when this last comfort would not have been included.  

But now,  now I feel it’s like a blanket of warmth in times of both joy and tribulation.  I find myself reaching for it more often than not.

The Bible is simple and plain in a way.  Oh sure, at times it seem intimidating. But in reality it’s a simple truth.

As a broken individual (or sinner) I tend to make things complex – about me – about my wants and my desires.  

But truly God gave and gives us daily the comfort and strength to endure not only the tribulations in life but the joys as well. 

HE gave the baptized the ultimate beginning and the loveliest “end”, although in reality it’s not an end, but eternal life through Jesus Christ our Savior.

So as I write these words, I find comfort in HIS word.  HE will take me where HE wants.  My goal is to go where ever that is, and may I do His work for His good for all people.

What’s your “tea A& toast” in times of question or tribulation?  

I’ll go now, it’s time to actually open the one thing that will bring more comfort than my “tea and toast”.

Thanks for stopping by, and allowing me to share my faith, feelings, and family.

2 Corinthians 1:4

“who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.”
