"Those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength. They will mount up with wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They shall walk and not faint." Isaiah 40:31

Empty Spaces

I look at these marvelous and grand  empty rooms and I marvel at the endless possibilities...

I think of a fresh new pallet, how exciting it is in the beginning...  Filling it up is so much fun.  But what we fill it up with can matter even more.  And once it is full there is no more room, unless things are purged and taken out.   I think of my own life and heart,  how careful I must be in filling up the spaces within.  How much is filled with love and care, peace and joy, and how much of the  worries and cares of this world.  I must purge what does not fit every once in a while ( and  that can be painful ) to make room for hopes and and dreams.  So be careful what you fill your home with, your heart with and your life with.
