Squeezing The Grapes

Friday night finds me poking on the keyboard trying to get something out of my head. There might be many somethings to get out of my head. This has been a crazy couple of weeks along with a good amount of stress. So what do you do? Writing just wasn’t coming. In fact I sat down to type something earlier this week and… well… I just couldn’t. I sifted through my emails along with some brief reading then let the computer alone.

I had coffee with a friend this week. We chatted about technology, church, family, music, and some other things. I gave him some advice in an area that I felt I had nothing to offer although I had been in a similar situation before. He got up with me the next day and let me know that it helped him take care of a difficult situation. It seems that when I have nothing to offer, God pulls out something that makes a difference in someone.

I have heard that grapes are their best during a drought because the juice is more concentrated. Is this a drought for me? Maybe so. I don’t like grapes although I like grape juice and raisins. Getting to the juice requires being squeezed. I don’t like being squeezed like a grape either. But if I got squeezed for a friend, it’s OK.

Ah, I found something to write.
