Starbucks AGAIN :)

God is so good to me today.

After met my client @ Bintang Miri
Presented my ideas
I decided to go lepak @ Popoular

Get a book
Get a coffee
Write letter
(sounds familiar.... )
and hang around @ Starbucks before the Bakun MT meeting tonight at 730pm.

I stepped into Popular Bookstore
and went directly to the Religious section
I told myself - How about Max Lucado this time
Or John Ortberg?

I saw this book by Max Lucado - which looks new to me
and I read the subtitle (ya, i didn't read the title first)
Common People in the Hands of An Uncommon God

This sounds interesting to me!
I am a very very common people
and I am in the Hands of an Uncommon God!!!!

Flip back... it was written...
Common People
Story after story marked by scandal, stumble, and intrigue. Who are these people?
They are the people of the Bible.
And they are us. We find our stories in theirs.
We find our hope where they found theirs.
In the Hands of an Uncommon God.

If God can find a place for them...
He just might have a place for us too.

OK. Deal. Grab this and go.

Ops, saw another book of ML which cost 19.90USD but wait...
it costs only 25 Ringgit in this bookstore?? (Approx 6USD)
And it is a devotional Bible?
No doubt.
It is for me.
Grab it.

Stepped in Starbucks.
Ordered a drink
Realised - i deserved a free drink today due to the stamps i collected past weeks.

Thank you Lord!

Time for letter.
Time for book.
Time for you God.


p/s: Hm.. where is the Starbucks Leng Chai :p hee hee
