Right after I posted the last comments last night I was watching an Oprah episode where she and Lisa Ling were interviewing convent nuns and the amazing thing to me was how happy these women were and how young.
While many of us thing how could they turn their backs on life, I saw in them a peace of not having to worry about possessions, cleaning them, buying them, finding a place to put them and not cluttering their lives with 'STUFF!'
No, I am not going to rush out and join a convent, but I wondered in some small way if God wasn't talking to my heart through these women and telling me that my quest recently to get rid of so much extra 'stuff,' in my life wasn't at least a very small step in the right direction!
Everywhere I look, I have clutter & it simply is driving me crazy...to much clutter keeps us from really focusing on what God wants us to do in life. Yesterday, I wasn't feeling well, my head was pounding and everyone at work kept asking me if I was mad. Funny, my headache had begun to clutter their thoughts....
Perhaps living with less stuff is what I need to be doing and less clutter in my brain...have a great day and enjoy!
