Day 9



A Cup of Conversation


Oh! Hello,

Come on in.

Would you like some coffee?

Milk? In your coffee?

Suit yourself.

I’ll take mine black.

No, sugar is for depression.

Moodiness always calls for tea.

No, not sweet tea. Hot tea.

Sweet tea is best friends with

Joy, laughter, and all things good.

Hot chocolate? Oh, well, let’s ask.

“Hot chocolate, whom is your best friend?”

“Hugs and winter’s breathe,” comes his ready reply.

Oh yes. The warmth of knowing

We always have a friend near

Even if it’s a river of water

Flowing from a cup.

A man who has friends must himself be friendly,

But there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.

Proverbs 18:24
