The Postcards

Standard

Every so often God sends me a message directly from Him. I was delighted yesterday when I retrieved the mail and saw the postcards from Cancun. 

It was so odd to receive them. Just the day before I was thinking that obviously they had been lost in the mail and they would have no mementos of Cancun.  I felt disappointed too because I always send my sons correspondence whenever I am away from home. 

Lo and behold over 45 days later, they came!

His message: Just when you think all is lost, it really isn’t.  Your blessings will come when you least expect them! Believe that!

Purge

Standard

I’m cleaning out the garage and getting rid of a lot of clutter–especially paper.  Proud to say I tossed quite a bit out last night.  Things I got rid of include:

  • Old graduation programs
  • Cards from former bosses/coworkers simply signed
  • Old invitations
  • Cards from businesses
  • Old check stubs (I have been saving them for YEARS!)
  • Old bills and bank statements

Trickier and still holding:

  • Letters from students
  • Funeral programs
  • College/high school work

The deciding factor for me was whether I wanted to continue toting and storing things that I rarely glance at.  The answer is no.  Plus I’m tired of looking at my messy garage!  I can’t wait to see what I throw out in Round II this evening.
