Lessons from St. Arbucks

"In a world where celebrity equals talent, and where make-believe is called reality, it is most important to have real love, truth and stability in your life."

- Bernie Brillstein, Film and television producer

This was the quote on my Starbucks cup tonight. As I live this transition that I'm in, these things - love, truth and stability - have become things that I not only am clinging to but am craving in new ways. As I sat at Starbucks with fabulous friends, sipping my tea and listening to the conversation, I was reminded again how blessed I am to be a part of the community of friends I am a part of. I know I've said it before but I know that God has brought them into my life at this time for a reason. They are just as much a part of this transition as I am. God's provision in advance, providing me with some of the love, truth and stability that I'm craving as I maneuver through this confused world.

can real love and real truth *provide* that real stability, no matter how uncertain things seem?

Exactly! From my limited perspective, that's exactly where true stability comes from, especially if you're living with a God understanding of love and truth! This is what I'm learning and leaning on!
