Clean out linen closet (donation pile here I come!)
I did pretty good on my to do list yesterday, I didn’t run or clean out the linen closet. But that’s ok. I went downstairs to get something from the laundry and thought “I need more storage” and then I thought “no you don’t, you need less stuff” and so… this coming weekend, I am going to start purging, things that I just don’t need. I have a lot of extra kitchen stuff, blankets, etc. I am going to put a bunch of it away for Phyllis so that when she gets her own place, she’ll have some stuff to start out with. Kitchen gadgets, bowls, etc, the rest I will either donate or give away. I just have too much stuff! I’m blessed beyond belief but I think all the years of not having much have made me want to hold on to stuff.
Maybe its just me, but sometimes I hold on to things, and people in my life long after they should have been held on to. I had a friend, someone I cared for so deeply, and I should have said ‘goodbye’ long before so much pain was caused. I hold on with both hands so tightly that God cannot put a new blessing into my hand. I’m thinking that in all this purging that is about to occur, someone who needs something will be blessed, I will be blessed in getting rid of the clutter, in simplifying my life, so that there is less of me, and more of Him.
John 3:30 He must become greater; I must become less
