There's a Hole

We own a coffee maker that I am willing to exchange for a $17.00 Mr. Coffee soon, and very soon. It has a thermos carafe which needs pre-heated with hot water if the coffee is to be hot. For the three years we have owned it, I did not know the plate it rests on is heated. I assumed it was the thermos holding the heat in, but not doing a very good job. (I like coffee and I like it hot.)

Yesterday, Loverby told me the plate was heated. I was incredulous. I didn't believe him. When I put my hand on it - sure enough - it was. I apologized for contradicting him. He smiled so big that I 'fell into his dimples'.

I had to adjust my beliefs ~ to truth. Every time this happens, I could jump with excitement.


The reason is this: what else might I have been wrong about for years and years? It opens doors, windows, and holes in the galaxy when I can change my mind and adjust to the truth. I'm clicking the iLike button on it. :)

Isn't it fun when a truth the size of an elephant walks through an ant-sized door?

Interesting, I had a coffee pot like that and like you got rid of it for the same reason, so knowing it was heating all the time did it make the coffee hot enough? an inquiring mind wants to know.

Yes, I relate. I remember a few years ago when I realized very clearly that I get things wrong more than I knew. It taught me to slow down and to listen and believe that others could, by extension, be more right than I knew. :)

Some like it hot...

Imagine this. I'm pondering all the things I myself might maybe could be all wrong about.

It is a transforming thought. Very humbling indeed.
