straight up

songs are great.
amazing, and for some people, a way of life.
There are some songs that make you smile, some make you mad, some make you laugh, and some make you sad (gawlly....i'm a poet who didn't know it).

in Christian music, there are the songs that you know are from Christian bands, which in your head, mean that they are Christian songs.
some songs require a scavenger hunt to find what in the world they are talking about. some are quite obvious.

i say all this to tell you about two songs i have been listening to ALOT lately (mainly ALOT today)

these songs are special to me because, in all honesty, they straight up share the gospel. IN A WAY THAT ATTRACTS MOST HUMANS: through la musica.......

why don'tcha take a listen to these tunes:

my taste buds are quite happy

would you like to know why?

i have taken a new step in the world of coffee
(don't is a beautiful thing, and one of my dearest and bestest friends)

i can now say something that i never thought i would ever say about this particular type of coffee...........ok........*wipes brow* is goes folks....


i don't even know how to begin describing it. before i made this new step in my life, i had told myself i would never like nor try hazelnut coffee....the thought of nut flavored coffee made my skin crawl .

don't get me wrong. i have had hazelnut coffee before
but i had mixed it up with another flavor
to make a fun concoction.
NEVER had i had straight up hazelnut. (oh hey. that rhymes....)
Then one morning when i was at my friend, Hayley's, house for breakfast
her mother was wonderful and fixed a pot of coffee.
i thought something was different about it, but couldn't quite place it.
it was just delicious!
i asked what flavor it was.
i got my answer: hazelnut....the kind i swore that i would never try or like.
of course keep in mind that it was dunkin dounuts brand coffee, so i just kept that in mind. i kept thinking to myself ''the only reason i like this hazelnut coffee is because it is from dunkin donuts."
and i kept thinking that
and kept thinking that
until.......this very moment: i am sitting here drinking Nescafe' instant coffee (because they where nice enough to send me some free samples) in none other but....hazelnut.
and you know what?
its great, delicious, amazing, nutty, and i-don't-know-what-else......
my taste buds are happy tastebuds....:)
