Are You a Carrot . . . An Egg . . . Or, a Coffee Bean?

Now and then, in life we get into hot water……
adversity, troubles, etc. 

If you are a carrot, you are now strong, hard and unrelenting …..
the hot water may make you soft and weak.

If you are an egg, you are now hard on the outside, but soft on the inside….
the hot water will make you hard on the inside, too.

If you are a coffee bean now…the hot water will be changed by you being in it.  
You will release your flavor and fragrance. 

"Now, that's a silly poem," someone has said,
"but there's a little food for thought, anyway!"

Dear LORD, make me better today,
come into my heart, empower me to change, to be, to do.
