So Much Space
Wednesday night my wife made me a baked apple dessert and asked if I would carry it downstairs from the kitchen. A little manual labor is a great price for a homemade treat! When I came down I looked for a place to set down the still piping hot dish and located a spot on the counter.
For the last few months we’ve been staying at a friend’s house and most of our stuff is still in boxes or sitting around the loft. Space is at a premium and the counter is no exception. The place I was hoping to set the dessert wasn’t quite big enough so I tried pushing the stuff surrounding it with the dish. Doing this forced a lamp that was also on the counter off and onto the floor. “Smash!” I heard the light bulb shatter when it hit the floor. There wasn’t anymore room on the counter and something had to go. Too bad it was the only light in the area! I cried out for Beth who came to my rescue and together we cleaned up the mess I had made.
Similarly our lives have only so much space. We can only fill them with so much before something has to give. We can only fit so much into them before the light goes out and we need help taking another step and cleaning up the mess.
