Coffee and Reflections is a place to gather where we share life, laughter, and tears. 

Dearest Readers,

Coffee and Reflections is a place to gather where we share life, laughter, and tears. A community where we share our growth, pain, joys, and heartaches.

We are soaked through in The Wilderness Place, last evening the land around us became a wading pool. Interstates temporarily closed due to flooding, mudslides, mandatory evacuations are happening now in the surrounding counties. I am thankful to report, at this moment we do have a bit of sun poking in and out. However, there is more rain on the way.

Reflections

I spent last  Saturday at Spring and Things hosted by The Coffee Lady 31, signing and selling Mornings In The Word and a new journal to go with the book. It was a blast to visit and share God’s faithfulness.

I am still reeling from watching a gathering of women love on and pray for one another. You can read about that here. Gathering women together in this way is how cultivating community, mentorship, and discipleship should look. I am blessed to be a part of this community of women who love pouring into other women.

Oh yes, that pesky little thing that continues to fill up our inboxes. You can read mine here.

Thrive and Not Survive

If you are a follower, you have seen this tagline on most everything I do here. Why? Living with P.O.T.S., Bone Degeneration, Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, and Chronic Pain, many choices disappear along with independence. Statistics show a high rate of depression and suicide with these diseases. My passion is to encourage you where you are. I want you to know and believe that you too can thrive and not just survive.

I know that I cannot carry this alone, but God can and will. His strength, His peace, His joy, my relationship with Him is the only way I can move forward. He fills me with His grace, covers me with His protection, and comforts my pain. Need sends me running into His arms, where I am held and carried.

It is an intentional choice, choosing to thrive and not merely survive, and one I revisit a thousand and one times a day. You too can have the same. Contact me at tlmashburn@yahoo.com or comment below if you would like more information.
