    April, What a great take on the word! I, too, thought about the “fullness” to which our culture tempts. More, bigger, full. Ann Vos Kamp, in her book Broken, addresses the paradox of the quest to fill our buckets with the lack of feeling satisfied. Emptying leads to abundance. “I will pledge to part with big and more and lots. Instead, I will fill my empty with silence and time and less.” Love the contrasts!

      Thanks so much for your comment, Stephanie! I am going to have to check out the book you suggested – Sounds like a meaningful read!

    This is so true. So many family and friends keep giving us so much stuff and it’s work to clean everything up. My little muffin loves just a couple of her toys anyway and is more interested in what I have. I love the idea of fullness in life, rather than stuff.

      Yes! We are just starting a kitchen remodel so our family of 5 moved to our basement… Sharing two bedrooms amongst us and with limited toys and “stuff.” So far, it has been AWESOME! So awesome! We’ve spent more time playing games, doing play doh together, just being TOGETHER. Apparently, it’s much easier to have quality time when I lose Internet and can’t work, lose my stove and can’t cook, and lose water so can’t do laundry 🙂
