Have Keurig will travel! It all began when my sister and brother-in-law were going to spend time at their timeshare for vacation. She asked me if I would be willing to Bea-sit while they were gone; it could be like a stay-cation for me I thought. “Absolutely!” I said. Bea is a black and white cockapoo (half cocker spaniel and half poodle) and is a delight to care for. Usually she’s not a picky eater, and with the homemade dog food my sister leaves for her, mealtimes are a breeze. Bea is a people-dog; she loves her people, which means wherever her people are, there’s Bea. She will sit with you wherever you are, in the kitchen, in the living room, on the back porch, or in bed. Countless times, I have awoken in the middle of the night to find Bea snuggled up next to me, so close, in fact, if I want to turn over, I can’t do so until I wake her up and have her move over.
As I had done numerous times before, I packed enough clothes for a week’s stay, my computer in its carrying case and whatever books and reading materials I’d need for the week and headed over to my sister’s. She made sure I had plenty of food while they were gone. There was even popcorn for nighttime snacking. It wasn’t until the next morning when I went to fix a cup of coffee that I realized she’d taken her Keurig coffee maker with her! No Keurig! No coffee for a week! I had no choice! I went home and got my Keurig! We laughed about it later. She had made sure I had everything I needed while she was gone but forgot to tell me she’d taken her Keurig. Now when I Bea-sit, I take my Keurig with me!
Shouldn’t our faith in God be as important as my Keurig is to me? Should we not make it a priority to spend time each day, whether we are home or on vacation, with God? Whether it’s thanking God for a beautiful sunrise, taking time to read a daily devotional or praying for family and friends? Spending time with God should be as important to us as that first cup in the morning!
