How many of you stop and take a little "Me" time? If you don't, then you should start. The people in our household know better than to try and have a conversation with me "Before Coffee". Just kidding, or am I? Some of us have that cup of coffee before the daily grind begins. We use it as our bible study or reflection time and even to pay a few bills or make out the grocery list.
Whatever the case may be, that quiet time is a blessing. It's that time to let the fog clear and settle our minds for the daily task ahead. The ladies of 798 would like to invite you to join in and give this morning ritual a try if you haven't already. It's guaranteed to re-wire and re-charge your mind for a more productive day.
I can smell that wonderful aroma just thinking about it!
So excited he
