Throw Out Fifty Things

I am rearranging everything about our home, and this is one hard job. It is constant in that both hubby and I feel we are moving things from one place to the other. I can see small changes happening, yet it is a huge process. When I think about the way clutter is cloistering my life, a story from Jesus jumps out: He was relating to the group how the prodigal son was craving the husks the hogs were hoarding. And Jesus puts it this way: "And when he had come to the end of himself..." That can apply to
the becoming sick of one's clutter...I feel disgusted. Pray that God will help me in this journey to throw caution to the wind, and make room in our house for a better future!!! Smiles and Happiness

It has been some time since I have visited this site. I "threw out" 10 infected teeth today. A lot of people were proud of me for having this surgery, but it needed to have been tended to long ago. Now, I pray that the remaining process of preparing my mouth for partials goes well. The dentists promised hard work in healing is on the horizon. This was my third, and hopefully, last surgery of its kind.

Gladys (or "Paige"), what a great analogy. Yes, it sounds like you "come to the end of yourself" in terms of piling up the past - and that you're DEFINITELY ready to step into the future...holding hands firmly with your husband. Prayers coming.

In other words, we place ourselves into boxes of our own design. We become hemmed in, and also we build cavernous webs of clutter and become stuck in it just as a fly would become glued to a spider's web. So in the infamous words of Charlotte, Wilbur's spirder friend, "Up with your chinny chin chin UP! I love my stuff, as I am sentimental, but am learning ever so ssslllllooooooooowwwwwwwwwwllllllllllyyyyyyyyyyy how to speed things forward by "Throwing out 50 things." Thanks once again, Gail, for your fab site.
