Coffee At My House....

Announcing: New Group for anyone needing to belong....
or just needing a boost in your believing....
Meet: At my house. My name is Anne Love, and I have a problem....
Time: Caffeine allowed anytime up to 4p.m. (this can be fudged because it's always 4p.m. somewhere!)
Who: Anyone who feels...... overworked, underpaid, stressed out, low-down, two steps behind, overwhelmed, imperfect, drug through a knot-hole backwards, a day late, a dollar short, short on grace, in need of mercy, forgotten, run over, used up, wrung out, left out, carried away, swept up, worn out.
Why: Because life is too short to stay clamped up, cramped up, or hiding out. Everyone needs a reason to believe and a place to belong. 
What: Need you ask? (Caffeine of course!) But seriously, we joke about caffeine--because it represents our need. Our imperfection. Our desire to be enough, to have enough, to find enough, to feel enough. So, whether you drink it, love it, hate it--you're still invited--because we really just want to have a connection. A moment to feel that God is in His heaven, that all is well with the world, that everything will be okay. 
Bring: Just an honest dose of authenticity, a cup to fill up--and overflow. A willingness to surrender all the should-do's, the ought-to's, and will-do's, the someday's, the if-I-could's. To leave all that we are, and that we aren't at the feet of Jesus. Some giggles. Some laughter. Some joy.
Take Home: A cup full and overflowing. A lighter step. An upturned smile. An ah-ha. A twinkle in your eye. A satisfaction. Enough-ness.
Please R.S.V.P. if you need a club like this one......
