Coming: Monday Moment

I have seen all the things
that are done under the sun;
all of them are meaningless,
a chasing after the wind.
-Ecclesiastes 1:14

Bet you came for a devotional, didn't you? Bet you'd be interested to know that this week's devotional is about being empty. About how life can seem meaningless. About how you... when the day is done and the lights go out... still wonder if there's more to life than what you see. If there's more to life than what you're getting...

... There is. I know because I've found it. Emptiness can be a thing of the past. Meaninglessness can no longer apply to you. No more chasing after the wind. Really. You don't have to live an empty life another day.

Check back with me later. As you read this I'm probably at church... around a fake campfire... teaching a passel of third graders about the importance of "daily cheer". Vacation Bible School begins today. Let me sit with these cuties and I'll be right with you, okay?

See you soon... -Brin

And after all we went through as a family, I remind my oldest of this many times. He still struggles, but God fills if we just let Him.

I like where this devotional is going...I too have been there, an empty vessel but I am not there anymore...my cup is full!

Brin, even your laundry is cute out there at Freeman House.

Thanks for the little devotional this Monday a.m. What a great reminder...to empty ourselves so that He can use us. Hard to do sometimes though.

Happy Monday!

I can't wait, Brin! I know I have so many blessings I can't count them, but once in a while a little questions sneaks into my mind---"Is this all there is?" Where does this selfishness come from???
