You are holding a cup of tea when someone comes along and bumps into you or shakes your arm, making you spill your tea everywhere.

Why did you spill the tea?

“Because someone bumped into me!!!”

Wrong answer.

You spilled the tea because there was tea in your cup.

Had there been lemonade in the cup, you would have spilled lemonade.

Whatever is inside the cup is what will spill out.

Therefore, when life comes along and shakes you (which WILL happen), whatever is inside you will come out. It’s easy to fake it, until you get rattled.

So we have to ask ourselves…

“what’s in my cup?”


When life gets tough, what spills over? Joy, gratefulness, peace and humility?

Anger, bitterness, harsh words, and reactions? Life provides the cup; YOU choose how to fill it.

Today let’s work towards filling our cups with gratitude, forgiveness, joy, words of affirmation, kindness, gentleness, and love for others.


By Peace Truth

Life is like a bunch of roses. Some sparkle like raindrops. Some fade when there's no sun. Some just fade away in time. Some dance in many colors. Some drop with hanging wings. Some make you fall in love. The beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Life you can be sure of, you will not get out ALIVE.(sorry about that)
