Coffee and Friends

Is it just me or does anyone else wake up in the morning, look outside and immediately start singing, "Oh what a beautiful morning, oh what a beautiful day"?!

My high school musical days come to mind whenever I hum that tune from "Oklahoma!"

But it couldn't have been more appropriate today as I left home for a few meetings.

Eventually I ended up back here, at the same coffee shop Claire and I discovered over the week-end while visiting the vet with our dog in Ostrava-Poruba. (by the way, she turned the corner today and is feeling much better!)

But this time I had a different partner to enjoy coffee with!

Geri is a JV missionary who lives and serves with her husband in Olomouc, and is one of my main working partners on the Josiah Venture Prayer Room.

Since she's getting ready to go to the States for six months, we had some catching up and planning to do. And where better than this cute place on a warm fall afternoon?

We lingered over coffee, enjoying every snippet of conversation as the warm fall air drifted in.

After we'd been there for a couple of hours, and were starting to think about lunch, a friend of ours happened to walk in! When I told her that I was trying to remember the favorite restaurant of a JV friend, who is her friend too, she just picked up her phone and called to ask her!

We ended up at one of her suggestions just down the street, but I didn't get a picture there. We were too busy enjoying the sunshine, good food and each other's company to take pictures!

But if you want a good coffee shop, COKAFE is a sure a good one!

I'll have to savor the memory of my sweet morning there with Geri today. I'll miss her like crazy in these next six months, and look forward to when we'll be together again.

  1. Jonny and I love COKAFE. We went there in a date on the way home from the hospital after Lydia was born. ☺️
