The shelf in my kitchen cupboard reserved for cups and mugs is overflowing. This seems a bit silly, for my large family has long since been launched, and while guests come often, they rarely arrive in large groups. Yet every time I deal with that shelf (usually after unloading the dishwasher) I come to the same conclusion. All the cups must stay because they all represent something important.
- Some are gifts from one of my children.
- Others are simply remembrances of special places I’ve visited or frequented.
- Still others simply have a comforting “feel” as I hold them.
“But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be God and not of us.” 2 Corinthians 4:7
“And of His fullness have all we received, and grace for grace.” John 1:16
“You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies: you anoint my head with oil; my cup runs over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.” Psalm 23: 5-6
If this speaks to your heart today, do share it.
God bless you all!
