Don't Run Dry

I want to start this blog to be an encouragement to moms out there like me who are wearing 50 hats in one day, trying to juggle it all and...well, running dry.  God has so much more planned for us than to be worn out, burnt out, and a constant wreck! 
Psalm 23:5 says, "You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows." (NIV)  This may be a verse we have heard often, especially if we grew up in the church, but what a beautiful picture it paints of peace and abundance. 
1 Thessalonians 3:12 says, "May the Lord make your love increase and overflow for each other and for everyone else, just as ours does for you." (NIV)  We must overflow with joy, peace, love.  How can we do that if we are merely surviving the whirlwind of our lives?  We live in an age where it is normal to be doing multiple things at a time, to give only a portion of our attention to any one thing, and to miss out on many of the blessings in our lives! 
God is waiting to fill your cup with blessings so that you may overflow to others.  My hope is that this blog be a place that will help to fill your cup - give you that boost of spiritual coffee, if you will - that you may overflow in your life!
