fully spent

“When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, “I used everything you gave me”. –Erma Bombeck

I love to laugh with cathartic tears streaming–the good laugh that wells up and overflows from the heart. You know the kind where you snicker at the thought hours later. I want the joy of life that if you don’t choose to laugh, you’ll probably cry, but you choose to experience the fullness of it. Either way, it has to be released. That is the place where I want to live—in the overflow—of love, of joy, of peace, of high hills and low valleys…but in the extremes of His extravagant love, that I may be used up completely, well spent at the end of the day. Enjoy today. It is a gift and an opportunity.

  1. I too want to live in the overflow of joy, laughter and love!

    That was just beautiful!

    I hope today is doing just that for you.

  2. I so agree with you my sister. I have been busy here for awhile and haven’t gotten on blogland. Wedding plans are well underway. She has chosen a dress, we have a location, a photographer and now we need to talk to the cake lady and florist. Time is flying by…how’s Beth this time around? I decided to do a study here in town called Captivating by Staci Eldrege. It’s also a book, worth the read. Love to you, Karen

  3. I love that you long to live in this moment fully. I’m a tad better today and hopefully coming but will know by Wednesday. Ooooh!

  4. Yes, I could use a good laugh today as well.

    Thank you for visiting my blog and commenting on my family.

    It is nice to meet another who understands the difficulty of releasing your children. Thank you for your prayers for Hannah.

    I know this is going to be an awesome opportunity for her overseas!

    Many blessings,

  5. Amen, siesta! Me too! There’s nothing like a good laugh! I must admit I need a cup of coffee… I plan on some good laughs with you one day in the near future! This was a very timely post… 🙂 Love you, Angie coco
