Well, the boxes have arrived. The boxes of boxes for our move this weekend. How on earth I am going to fit all of our belongings and possessions into these boxes is beyond me. I don't think it's possible...and I think that's the point. We're ready to simplify. We've picked a much smaller apartment/condo down the street with no garage to conveniently stash those things we haven't been able part with the last five times we've moved. That is, unless the neighbors don't mind our junk lining the hallway...
"Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." Matthew 6:19-21
So that's the idea. Not easy, and my idol factory of a heart sure is fighting it. But resolved, Craigslist will now be displaying my "treasures" so that we can be more focused on our lasting Treasure in heaven. For Heaven knows these dusty things have no place there.
God help us. And send muscles.
i love this reminder. I'm so guilty of storing up these dusty things and stalling what's important. Simplicity is a beautiful thing that I have to regularly fight for. <3 thanks friend.ReplyDelete
Wish we could be there to help...glad to hear you found a place (and got to stay in your neighborhood- because it means more walking to Me n Eds, and all the other great stuff you appreciate!)ReplyDelete
