Tuesday was the first day of summer, the summer solstice.
I can’t think of anything better to kick off summer than a refreshing Starbucks cold beverage. And on Tuesday I had found a Starbucks gift card to spare in my purse for just the occasion. It was one that a student had given me on the last day of school. What perfect timing! It called out to me to try their new summertime drink.
The Ombre Pink Drink.
It was beautiful! It was delicious! And oh so refreshing!
And if you want to get really crazy, you can request something off their secret menu. An Ombre Rainbow drink. Mix two of their summertime Ombre drinks. Pink and Purple I hear are a good mix.
What else can you add together in the summer time to make a good mix?
Summer evenings and lightning bugs. Grilled hot dogs and hamburgers. Kids and swimming pools. The list goes on. And you and me and Jesus. And not just during the summer time, but every day.
Let’s all mix a little Jesus in our day to keep us refreshed. When the going gets a little heated, He offers us a cool drink of water. Living water. And Starbucks hasn’t quite mastered reproducing that liquid gold just quite yet.
Here’s to summer! Here’s to Starbucks’ Ombre Drinks! And here’s to Jesus!
The law of the Lord is perfect, refreshing the soul. The statutes of the Lord are trustworthy, making wise the simple. Psalm 19:7
Love and laughter,
