If you're a mother, chances are you've heard this:
"You sure do have your hands full!"
And if you're like me, when you're not carrying things (or small people) you feel kind of odd-- like you're forgetting something. Your check your pocket for the phone... That's not it... Shake your purse to make sure your keys are still in there... Wait. Why am I standing in the middle of the kitchen staring at a laundry basket full of toys, books, and empty coffee mugs?
This kind of amnesia is normal when you're a busy mom. But there's something vitally important that we need to take care to remember daily: What exactly are our hands filled with? Treasuring Christ When Your Hands Are Full is like one long note-to-self where I attempt to spell out the answer to that question:
Because of the gospel, your hands aren't simply full; they're overflowing with every spiritual blessing in Christ.
