"I have always seen the glass as half-empty", said
a lady at the restaurant I was eating at. "No matter how things go in
my life I always tend to see the bad first". She, of course, wasn't
the first person I have heard say this. It seems at times like the glass
half-empty crowd is a lot larger than the glass half-full crowd.
I prefer to see the glass that is our life as completely
empty, but just waiting to be filled. Beside our glass lies a pitcher
full of life's blessings. The pitcher is overflowing with love, laughter,
joy, goodness, kindness, happiness, peace, beauty, and delight. How
much we pour into our glass and drink down is completely up to us, however.
We can drip in a few drops, stop pouring when it is half-full, or fill
it to the top and drink it down. We don't have to stop there either.
The pitcher never runs dry. We can drink down glass after glass of life's
blessings and then offer the pitcher to everyone we meet. Life's blessings
were meant to be shared, after all.
||When it comes to filling the glass
of life never stop at half-way. Live your life fully and fill your glass
fully. God loves you and wants you to have a full glass of every good
thing. Drink down all the joy, love, laughter, happiness, and delight
that you can in this life. Take that pitcher of life's blessings and fill
the glasses of all those you meet as well. God will make sure that the
pitcher always stays full. It is up to you, though, to make sure that
your glass always stays full.
