Food Fashion and Flow: Does Your Cup have a hole in it?

Does Your Cup have a hole in it?


 My cup runneth over...
That's what we all want in life. A full cup. Right? Your cup in life will never be full or overflow until you understand one fundamental truism in life. You can never have a full cup if yours has a hole in it.


Anything you pour into a cup with a hole will trickle out either slowly or quickly depending on how big the hole is because that cup with the hole has the capacity to receive only what a cup with a hole in it can hold.

 Which is almost nothing

The holes in our lives are usually negative thoughts or negative people. Most of the time it is usually both. There is only one way to seal the hole in your cup. Anything that holds you back from your personal best, stops you from believing in yourself and your dreams, prevents you from being a better person, encourages you to accept mediocrity,  GET RID OF IT. And then put your faith and your trust in God.

 Because the ultimate blessing is for you to have more than a full cup because a full cup is just enough for you, but a cup that runneth over is enough for you and others. It is never just for you. Here is to a cup that runs over and drips onto the saucer. Thats what abundance looks like:-)

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over - Psalm 23

I love your analogy, and those pictures are amazing! You're so right, negative things and negative people will prevent your blessings from coming to pass. We need to get rid of things that hinder us from attaining our purpose in live. With God's help...that will be done!

Thanks for sharing! :)

LV - How awesome are you. Your words and photos are just beautiful.

Your life experiences have brought you through many obstacles.

The great thing about you is you're like Wonder Woman.

You fly your invisible plane in and drop knowledge and wisdom to all and when anyone tries to submit negativity, you reflect it away with your mighty gold bands.

Wonder Woman!

After reading your posts I feel as though I can conqueror the world and take on the new Roman Empire.
You are a truly an inspiration.
