Five Minute Friday:: FILL

Write for five minutes- no editing, no back spacing, no over thinking. Just set the timer and blog!

Today’s word:: Fill

Fill your time.
Fill your coffee?      

Fill your heart.
Fill you up?

How many different ways do we use the word fill?
What does it really mean.  I know, you can tell when the coffee cup is full.
But, can you tell when you have had your fill?
When it’s been too much, too many, too loud?
When you need to get away and fill yourself with the ONE who really fills?
I don’t think I pay enough attention to when I have had my fill of sights and sounds of the day, the kids fighting, the watermelon juice all sticky on the floor, the dishes in the sink that won’t magically move to the dishwasher on their own, the towels wet and threatening mildew on the hardwood floor.
It’s not that I don’t enjoy serving my large family.
It it that my attitude can fill the house with tense feelings when I have had had enough.
I need to step away and have my fill of Jesus. He is enough.  He gives me grace. His Words are life. STOP
