"Better is an handful with quietness, than both the hands full with travail and vexation of spirit." Ecclesiastes 4:6
As I reflect on this passage I think about all the times I have worked so hard to get my hands full. By the time my hands are full, I am too exhausted to enjoy what I have. When I study this verse it is not saying you have little but rather you have a handful. One hand is full while the other is free. Which to me means I have more than enough and I have peace to go along with it.
When my children play with their toys, they gather all their toys in both hands so no one can play with their toys but them. They are so worried about someone taking what they have that they can't play with their toys. I rather have one "toy" and get to play with it than ten "toys" and never get to enjoy them.
Life is meant to be enjoyed.
Today appreciate the handful that life has to offer and embrace the peace as it comes with it.
