I like to brew my own coffee from The Melting Pot in Rockford, Michigan. It’s the very best I have ever had. When I ran the Character Inn in Flint it was the house coffee. People raved about it. But if I am ever in a rush and want a quick drive-through gormet coffee, this little shop is convenient. It is just one mile south of the church, right on my way. It’s a lovely little shop, isn’t it? Bearclaw Coffee is pretty good stuff on a winter day. The workers there were cheerful, too. Cheerfullness is like caffeine for the soul. Hey, Caffeine for the Soul, I like that.
Cheerfulness is Cafeine for the Soul
Prosperity in 2008
By Ken Pierpont
A mile south of the church is a business called Bear Claw Coffee. I spoke to the owner the other day. I asked him how business was. Last year was his first year in business so it was an expensive start-up. He is hoping that 2008 will be a profitable, prosperous year. I hope so too. I want them to be around for a long time. Yesterday when I looped through to get my morning “joe” they handed my cup out the window with a little Tootsie Roll on top of it. Nice touch. They don’t do that at Starbucks.
I wish for you real prosperity in 2008. There is no genuine prosperity without spiritual prosperity, no matter how many pounds you loose, no matter how much money you make.
Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers. (3) For I rejoiced greatly when brethren came and testified of the truth that is in you, just as you walk in the truth. (4) I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth. 3 Jn 1:2-4 NKJV
I hope they sell a lot of lattes and coffees at Bear Claw and I hope they are there for years to come. I enjoy a warm exchange and a strong, black coffee to warm me in my Jeep on the way to the study. If you think of it, pray for me that I will prosper spiritually in this New Year. Pray that I will be able to influence the good people at Bear Claw to prosper in every way. May God prosper you and yours too and make the Stonebridge a part of that.
