A client of mine, who is an engineer, told me this:
Optimists say the glass is half full.
Pessimists say the glass is half empty.
Engineers say the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.
And David said, “my cup runneth over.”
The cause of my anxiety is that I have this great big cup and I want it filled to the brim so there is enough for the foreseeable future. And it is never full enough.
If I would be content with a cup that is just big enough for today, I would see that it is overflowing with God’s blessings.
That is an excellent comment, far deeper than what I was writing as kind of a joke. I really like your biblical reference and “big enough” to “runneth over” lesson. Thanks, Bob!
LOL; That seems like the correct answer. Just size the glass appropriately; simple. However, I am an engineer also and sometimes we oversimplify things.
….i don’t know about the glass size, however I do have a coffee cup that has been well engineered for the right amount of coffee and cream…… I think I’ll go get a refill right now!!!!! LOL
Take Care and God Bless 🙂 Kenny T
An elegant answer, indeed, although it does not take account of the stresses induced in transporting a liquid cargo. Or something 🙂
Yes, well there is that. That is when cups runneth over from sloshing around.
Indeed, I’ve stained my britches that way. And yes, that’s my story and I’m sticking to it!
