Whatsoever things are lovely....
So often I am frustrated by all the 'things' I have 'to do' or wish to do, and forget how blessed I am. We had so little growing up, and now.....too much is the norm it seems to me. This morning I am taking a moment to say, Thank you to the Lord, from whom all blessings flow.
Though my small library/music/pc room is a bit crowded...still, here it is. Joy often comes in retrospect....covered with thankfulness. I will choose this morning to be thankful and encourage myself to discard the old things...such as recipes I'm forever clipping and sticking in here to be forgotten. As I grow older I see in myself....as I have before, too much importance placed on 'things' and some of the things are fairly valueless. (Is this the backlash of the avid garage sale patron?lol)
Then again, variety is the spice of life, tis said. Balance surely must be 'key'. What do you think? Equality on the scales of collecting? I know its been said....if you bring home 3 items...3 other items must be carried out for donation. Makes sense, but maybe I'm like the monkey with his hand in a narrow-mouthed jar full of cookies. He/she reaches in grabs a handful of cookies and then cannot get his/her hand out of the jar, because he will not let go. Hmmmm. Let go.
By the way, I do like my apps =) ....and I came across one called...'Buttons & Scissors' that I like very much. You connect the buttons of like color with your finger and scissors follow you ....deleting them...on and on. It is pretty challenging, so much so that after reaching the #30th game...I weakened and bought the answer packet for 2.99. I've only needed to use the answer feature once. Now I'm on #41. It is on the itunes store and free, I think. Have fun!
I Chronicles 4:10 'And Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, Oh that thou wouldest bless me indeed, and enlarge my coast, and that thine hand might be with me, and that thou wouldest keep me from evil, that it may not grieve me! And God granted him that which he requested.'
