How does Starbucks and Prayer go together for me?


Well let me tell you…..


Some of you know my  crazy hobby of collecting Starbucks Mugs from around the world. Starbucks has been making “city mugs” for probably about 15 years.

I have gone through 4 series of city mugs from Amman Jordan to Lima Peru to Ohio.  Not every city and country has one but many do.  Some you have even helped me collect them. Over the years I have collected probably close to 200 cities, states and countries.  I tell my wife it’s a cheap hobby, $10 a mug.


Well , yesterday I walked into Starbucks at the ATL airport and series #5 just came out and saw the brand new Atlanta mug.  Here we go….time to start a new collection. Box the old and now start drinking out of the new. I  got Atlanta, Denver and NYC, and there are a lot more to follow.

If God is divorced from your life, then you are divorced from the all Wise God. (Romans 16:27 “the only wise God”).
