Last weekend, when I got the coffee out and started making it, I thought to myself, “This smells like my quiet time.” (Please insert your own “Smells like teen spirit,” Nirvana joke.)
For years, whenever I’ve had a morning quiet time, I’ve done it while drinking a cup of coffee. Now, the two feel intrinsically linked. Not that I can’t spend time reading the Bible without coffee, but even just the smell of it triggers the idea of quiet time in my head. Which made me curious, what are the things in your life that have become associated with your Bible study, or your personal worship or your quiet time?
Is it a place? The beach or a mountain vista?
Is it an album? Some band you always listened to before you started your quiet time?
Is it coffee or tea?
What is your version of coffee during your quiet time?
