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!
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.
