The Great Barista

5 Jan

Many of you are addicted to them.
You stand in long lines to wait for your favorite cup of whatever it is you all get from Starbucks.If you are from my hometown, you seriously crave Port City Java. Some of you can’t live without  your favorite coffee drinks nor the baristas that prepare them.
In fact, many of you will wait in line and SWEAR that your day will not be complete without it! It’s that much of a must have… Well today, I want to tell you about something bigger and even better.

Let me introduce you to the Great Barista.

This person makes amazing concoctions that contain a lil bit of sweet sometimes bitter but always worth the wait. Sometimes they can give it to you in an instance and other times you have to wait for a great concoction from the Great Barista.  Sometimes you try a concoction from them, and you may not like it but it may have been what you needed at that specific time, or even better yet what you asked for. Sometimes what you ask for doesn’t always turn up to be the best thing for ya. Sometimes you have to let certain concoctions go because they are no longer healthy for you. And that’s okay. You have to put your trust in the Great Barista. I gurantee you he knows what he’s doing.

Are you at the point in your life where you are waiting on a concoction from the Great Barista? Well if so there are a few things you must know:

1. Concoctions aren’t made over night. They take TIME. It’s not on your time either…  It’s the time the Great Barista thinks it takes.

2. Be very specific what you ask for. Or shall I say be very careful what you ask for. You just may recieve.

3. Be prepared for the sweet and bitter taste of life. They both add flavor to what is being created.

4. Understand when a concoction you thought you had your name on the side, is given to someone else. It doesn’t mean you don’t have the same concoction coming, it just means yours isn’t quite ready yet.

5. Try something new! It’s scary, I know. But it might be the best tasting thing you’ve ever had.

6. Don’t be disappointed if the first taste isn’t the greatest. Sometimes it takes a lil while to warm up to something new.

7. Be thankful for every concoction that comes your way. Trust and believe it is for a reason.

8.  Never give up on the great Barista. He’s the greatest for a reason.

I don’t know what made me want to talk about the Great Barista today. I think it is simply because well, he is so GREAT.  Not to mention, my friend who happens to be a co worker wrote on her blog (It’s Always Something) today something really phenomenal that reminds us all that every thing happens for a reason, even if it doesn’t seem to turn out a certain way, and THAT’S OKAY.  We just have to get to the point were we understand that. Also, I hear so many people saying , “Steph look at you, happily married, full time job, home owner, you are really blessed. ” Well that may be it, but that’s not just it. Please believe me, I’ve had my fair share of concoctions some great, some not so good, some new, some old, and I got to the point where I realized I have to let the Great Barista do his thing, trust him completely, and know he would never give me something I can’t handle 😉

I guess the moral of this blog is…
hold on, keep the faith, and know that your time is coming…
Your just going through the brewing period, and we all are constantly going through that period where things are being created and developed just for us. It’s what I like to call the “Brewing of a Blessing”.

Believe me, the great Barista has your back 🙂

Until Next Time, Mrs. SPJ 🙂

Psa. 27:14 Wait for the Lord; Be strong, and let your heart take courage; Yes, wait for the Lord.

    Love the reference to coffee and The Big Guy! I’m glad someone else can see the light in the dark. 🙂

      Always can 🙂 I’ve been calling it the brewing of a blessing for awhile. In fact a pastor told me he liked my thoughts and was going to talk to them about 3 months ago which was pretty awesome, so I thought, ok now it’s time for me to really talk about the Great Barista 🙂
