Life is like a jar of NUTELLA



the moment I saw this picture of my youngest grandson, Marshall...I KNEW!!!  this picture is priceless......

I couldn't wait to write a blog about it and to also get it on Pinterest....one of my friends suggested an advertisement for Nutella....all of the above are correct answers.....

But here is what I saw....

verses like------- child like faith.........out of the mouths of babes......a little child will lead them........so here goes,

This little child is most definitely showing us something about how to live life......stick that whole hand of yours right smack dab into the middle of that jar and OPEN WIDE!!!!!!  get that whole fist full of yummy chocolate goodness right into your mouth...and get some all over your face and hands and jar and table and anything else within a half mile of your life..

I think Marshall has the right idea...just DIG IN!!!!!!!

don't be timid and don't hold back.....GET YOU SOME!!!!!!!!  that is...LIFE!  live it to the fullest possible...

We only get to do this one time..it is not a dress rehearsal..it is the real thing..there is no saving up to use in the next life....we get a certain amount (as in this jar of Nutella)...and we need to use it ALL!!!  right down to the bottom of the jar....we don't need to get to the end of this life and have half a jar left because we were so scared to live that we saved half of it......it is ours to live..no one can do it for us......

this jar of Nutella was a Christmas gift to Marshall's parents from me....but as you can see, that did not deter him...He saw something good and went for it!!  the whole jar.....kinda like us and God..when we see something that is His, we can go for it....If we have trusted Him, then He is our Daddy...and no good thing does He withhold from those who walk uprightly......

Well, Marshall shows us what that looks like......

So, take your hand.....open that jar of Nutella aka your life......and stick your entire hand in there and bring a fist full of yummy goodness to your mouth....and do NOT be careful about what it spills over onto....just be concerned with tasting and seeing that it is good....and letting others smile or laugh out loud because of the joy surrounding you....

Like this little child, I plan on making 2012 a year where I jump in there with both feet..no holding back....when I see something good in My Father's House, I plan to go for it!!!!!!!  do you want to join me?  what a wonderful world that would be if we all tried to spend our lives emptying our jars of Nutella.....

thank you to Betsy Sinclair for this awesome picture...and to Marshall for the freedom he lives in because his parents get it!!


thank you for stopping by today.....this year is gonna be a good one..I can just feel it....can you?
