Morning Coffee with the International Space Station

Check the schedule and make a date to have coffee with the International Space Station. We did just that this past Tuesday morning around 6:40 a.m. in Southern California. Go ahead. Check the schedule for yourself. Then, spend a minute marveling as the space station races across the sky in plain sight over your home. Remind yourself that there’s a half-dozen people riding in that thing, cruising along at over 17,000 miles per hour, circling the planet every 90 minutes or so, and then try to tell yourself that you don’t see miracles around you every day.

Miracles come in all forms, natural and unnatural–from flowers that instinctively open and close and even eat bugs (like the good ‘ole Venus Fly Trap) to man-made contraptions orbiting around the earth. Have a sip of coffee, remind yourself how blessed you are, and then give a wave to those brave astronauts floating around in space. They’re checking out YOU while you’re checking out THEM. Be a part of it!
