I have decided to get rid of a bunch of "stuff".
I normally donate it, but I decided to have a garage sale. I could use the extra cash for spending money in Austria. I look at all the "stuff" I have, CDs, precious moments, scrapbook stuff and I think WOW! how much money have I wasted on things I certainly didn't need?? Makes me kind of sad, just in CDs alone... I'm probably getting rid of close to 350 CDs (including Christian) and holding on to about 100. That's a lot of cake if you know what I'm saying. I want to redo the basement so it's more useful for us (like a giant area for sewing, painting, and scrapping), open it up quite a bit, getting rid of old furniture that we just don't use and even though it's old, hopefully someone can put it to good use.
I think everyday I just realize a little more how blessed I am! I think about how God has showered me with blessings, beginning at a cross that I just can't fully comprehend, completely undeserving, and greatful beyond words.
The things of this world do not matter, it is our heart, that has been changed by God that has the most worth in our lives.
I am THANKFUL! and GREATFUL! That God came down to save someone like me, changed by His love and grace, forever.
Proverbs 10:2 2 Ill-gotten treasures are of no value,
but righteousness delivers from death.
