Tim Hortons: Roll Up The Rim To Win... But, Not For All!

Something has happened to me, that I've forgotten to discuss, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL).  Even so, I'll do it, today!

Anyone who knows me, understands that I sometimes meet friends at Tim Hortons (TH).  TH is a coffee and bake shop place.

Some friends enjoy coffee, there.  Other friends enjoy tea, or other beverages and/or food.

Recently, I met a couple of times with my friend, A.

When we decided to meet there, I knew A enjoyed tea.  And, got some for her.

I was feeling differently, as of late.  Instead of wanting something hot to drink, I felt like something cold.

For me, I got myself Ice Capp Coffee. 

A's hot tea came in a paper cup.  My cold coffee came in a plastic cup.

To me, this was rather disturbing.  Hurtful.

Why?

Tim Hortons has a contest every year where people can win various items.  How?  By rolling up the rim to win.

Here's a link for you to read about it:  https://www.rolluptherimtowin.com/en/in-restaurant.

I found it rather awful that I would pay close to double the price for the cold coffee than for the price I paid for the tea, yet didn't get a cup in which to roll up the rim. 

After all, I was drinking their coffee!  And, it's a coffee shop!

Another time, my friend A obtained tea for herself and the cold coffee for me.

I thought I was going to receive the Ice Capp Coffee in the plastic cup, again.  But, I didn't.

A was hoping I would get a roll up the rim to win... coffee cup.  But, I didn't.

Instead, I was given my cold coffee in a paper cup.  But, not in one where I could roll up the rim to win.

How upsetting was this!  After all, like I said earlier, the cost of my coffee is almost double what the cost of their hot coffee is, yet I couldn't participate in the game? 

Meaning, I wasn't eligible to win anything.  Not even a cup of coffee.  Or, a donut.  Never mind a car, like someone who drank tea, apple cider or any other hot beverage.  :'(

Even so, I enjoyed both times there with my friend, A.  Just as I always do.  Even though I haven't been treated as well, as some other people.

How come?

We are people who have been friends for many, many years.  We are both born-again Christians, who sometimes discuss our faith in addition to other conversations.

Thinking of this, brought to mind Romans 1:12, "That is, that I may be comforted together with you by the mutual faith both of you and me."

Yes, I feel so comfortable meeting with friends who are on the same page in life, as me.  Friends who truly love our Lord, Jesus Christ.

By having mutual faith, we relate well to each other.

Do you feel comfy with me?  Or, other born-again Christians?

Hopefully, so.

After all, when we gain salvation by trusting in/believing upon our Lord, Jesus Christ, we will truly become brothers and sisters, in Christ.

If we are truly brothers and sisters in Christ, then we will meet each other, some day... in Heaven. 

Hopefully, this is what you desire.  For, it is what I desire, also.

May God bless you.


Until next time...
