  1. Carrot, Egg & Coffee To all my "coffee" friends. This is just too great not to pass on. Carrot, Egg and Coffee...You will never look at a cup of coffee the same way again... A young woman went to her mother and told her about her life and how things were so hard for her. She did not know how she was going to make it and wanted to give up. She was tired of fighting and struggling. It seemed as one problem was solved, a new one arose. Her mother took her to the kitchen. She filled three pots with water and placed each on a high fire. Soon the pots came to boil. In the first she placed carrots, in the second she placed eggs, and in the last she placed ground coffee beans. She let them sit and boil, without saying a word. In about twenty minutes she turned off the burners. She fished the carrots out and placed them in a bowl. She pulled the eggs out and placed them in a bowl. Then she ladled the coffee out and placed it in a bowl. Turning to her daughter, she asked, "Tell me what you see." "Carrots, eggs, and coffee," she replied. Her mother brought her closer and asked her to feel the carrots. She did and noted that they were soft. The mother then asked the daughter to take an egg and break it. After pulling off the shell, she observed the hard boiled egg. Finally, the mother asked the daughter to sip the coffee. The daughter smiled as she tasted its rich aroma. The daughter then asked, "What does it mean, mother?" Her mother explained that each of these objects had faced the same adversity - boiling water. But each reacted differently. The carrot went in strong, hard, and unrelenting. However, after being subjected to the boiling water, it softened and became weak.The egg had been fragile. Its thin outer shell had protected its liquid interior, but after sitting through the boiling water, its inside became Hardened. The ground coffee beans were unique, however. After they were in the boiling water, they had changed the water. "Which are you?" she asked her daughter. "When adversity knocks on your door, how do you respond? Are you a carrot, an egg or a coffee bean?" Think of this. Which am I? Am I the carrot that seems strong, but with pain and adversity do I wilt and become soft and lose my strength? Am I the egg that starts with a malleable heart, but changes with the heat? Did I have a fluid spirit, but after a death, a break-up, a Financial hardship or some other trial, have I become hardened and stiff? Does my shell look the same, but on the inside am I bitter and tough with a stiff spirit and hardened heart? Or am I like the coffee bean? The bean actually changes the hot water, the very circumstance that brings the pain. When the water gets hot, it releases the fragrance and flavour. If you are like the bean, when things are at their worst, you get better and change the situation around you. When the hour is the darkest and trials are their greatest, do you elevate yourself to another level? How do you handle adversity? Are you a carrot, an egg or a coffee bean? May you have enough happiness to make you sweet, enough trials to make You strong, enough sorrow to keep you human and enough hope to make you happy. The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the most of everything that comes along their way. The brightest Future will always be based on a forgotten past; you can't go forward in Life until you let go of your past failures and heartaches. When you were born, you were crying and everyone around you was smiling. Live your life so at the end, you are smiling, and others feel the loss. You might want to send this message to those people who mean something to you (I JUST DID); to those who have touched your life in one way or another; to those who make you smile when you really need it; to those who make you see the brighter side of things when you are really down; to those whose friendship you appreciate; to those who are so meaningful in your life. If you don't send it, you will just miss out on the great opportunity to brighten someone's day with this message! It's easier to build a child than repair an adult. This is so true - may we all be COFFEE – the strong coffee!!!
  2. True.. often when I see sport fans in the crowds cheering and dressed in their team or country colors with painted faces and all that - I think to myself "God intended that we would have the same passion and creativity in worship of Him". It was all meant for worship. I know there will be sports in heaven, but it will all be done for the King in worship! Celebrating all that He created us to be and all He created us for!
  3. And update, the woman is home with the Lord now. Thanks for you prayers. We tried, but it's okay, it must have been her time to return to papa
  4. Please continue to hold her up. Family was gathered for a meeting (as per the doctor) to decide on weither to pull the plug or not. The family can't decide.. my pastor is going there to meet her today at 1pm. While in prayer for this woman, I was in a vision taken to her hospital room and I saw two angels standing next to her bed, one on the left and one on the right. So perhaps, maybe this woman is going to pass away. If that is so, then pray for the comfort of the family and my pastor as well..
  5. By the way I thought that I should mention that I am going to the hospital tommorow or the day after to pray for this woman with my pastor.
  6. Hello everyone, my pastor's good friend, an amazing woman of God and powerful intercessor is veru close to passing away from cancer. Her body is so swollen and she wants to speak but can. My pastor prayed for her yesterday and she was doing better today praise God there was some improvement, Hallelujah. But now I am calling for the heavy artillary. Could you please pray that thisman risesupfrom her sick bed and that this sickness leaves her. Bless you all. I've asked you guys and gals for help many times befor and the Lord has answered everytime so this is just only another request. The Lord will answer from Heaven, just please pray.Bless you.
