Empty or Full?

Lent is over and my fasting from chocolate has come to an end. I have once again been enjoying my favorite indulgence in all it's various forms!

As I thought about refilling the empty tea cup that sits in my scrap space (remember my post about my special tea cup and M&M's?) I realized how much that tea cup represents my heart.

When I emptied it of chocolate at the beginning of Lent, it was out of a true desire to be filled more with God and His graces instead. Throughout Lent, as I emptied my heart of the things that crowd Jesus out, I once again experienced His loving presence deep within my soul. I have come to realize that things of this world (yes, including chocolate) will only fill us with a momentary happiness, but God fills us with a lasting joy and a peace that the world cannot give.

As Easter approached, I felt God inviting me to come to His banquet table and enjoy the feast He had prepared for me! And on Easter Sunday my heart was full!

As I looked at my little tea cup today, I realized it is far from empty. Truly, my cup runneth over!


  1. And may Christ, Our Risen Saviour,
    always be there by your side
    To bless you most abundantly
    and be your loving guide.
    Psalms 129:8
