Small Bowls Holding Hidden Treasure

I remember some years ago when trying to come up with ideas for Christmas gifts I could make to give, I decided to put together a 'kit' - to package together everything needed to make a special treat. So, I settled on hot chocolate, a good winter treat, and mixed up all the ingredients, and put them into a pretty sack, in a box, along with two mugs. But something was missing, that one special touch, that would make the sum more than its parts.... and suddenly I knew, just what I could do to add that special touch from the heart.

I took some chocolate, dark, white, and brown, and melted them down in small pots, then took plastic spoons, lowly, ordinary tools, and began dipping them into each pot - and suddenly they were more than just spoons, they were small bowls holding hidden treasure. They revealed their secret as they were stirred into the hot chocolate, the layers melting inside the cup - the dark melting first to reveal the white, and finally the sweet milk chocolate layer rich and brown, and those swirls of chocolate turned that ordinary drink into a cup of delight to see and taste.

My life was like that spoon before I met you...plain and ordinary, but longing for so much more. But the more that I stirred, the less I got done, and I ended up creating such a mess. At last, I turned to Him, the One I hoped could fix the chaos that was my life, and asked Him to do what I could not.... and He was instantly there, with love and gentle forgiveness...and He set about transforming me from the inside out.

Like that plain ordinary spoon, He dipped me in His love, and then layers of peace, trust and hope...He prepared me for the day I would be stirring a new cup....all my flaws and sins He put away.

At last He knew I was ready to begin again...and then...into my life He brought you. Our love grew so quickly, we both just knew it was right.... it was our gift to each other from above.... and each day we still discover a new layer to our love, each day it is brand new.... and what joy it is to know there is no end to the love I have in you.
