Coffee Talk {living outside the stacks}

I’d like to welcome you to Coffee Talk. If you’re new here, this is where I share some of the great and not~so~great stuff that I find on the web. Topics range from news stories that leave me scratchin’ my head to DIYs that I think are absolutely clever. And, who knows, there may even be a recipe thrown in here or there just for fun.

So grab a cup of coffee {or tea or whatever floats your boat} and let’s talk…

My biological father died eight years ago last month and my biggest regret is that I didn’t take his last phone call. I saw his number on my caller ID and thought I’ll call him later. Later turned into days and those days turned into months, until one day I got the call that he was gone. I sat there stunned. Trying to remember the last conversation that I’d had with him. Did I remember to say “I love you” at the end? Did we laugh at a childhood memory? What exactly did we talk about?

Despite not remembering our last call, I do know that my dad knew that I loved him. I had shown him over the years… There were phone calls, letters, pictures, and the occasional visit.

In the time since my dad’s passing, I’ve cried as friends and family have received devastating health news. I’ve talked to them and told them they need to make sure they say what they need to say and do what they need to do. If they love someone, they need to say it. If they need to ask for forgiveness, they need to confess.

But, I’ve come to the conclusion that these are things that need to be done and said before one is ill.

More than that, while you’re healthy, you need to think about where you will spend eternity. Heaven is very real. So is hell.

Salvation is a free gift from the Lord. The only thing that you have to do is acknowledge that you’re a sinner and that you believe that Jesus Christ was born, lived, died, and rose again to save your soul.

Romans 10:9~10 says:

9 If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.

That is all.

This word has been weighing heavily on my heart and I hope and pray that you’ll listen and make your decision today. This is the most important decision you’ll ever make. Please make the choice before it’s too late.

Sipping my coffee while you talk,
