Yesterday I received an email from someone who is also taking a creative approach to her “messes.”
“As I've chipped away at my mountain of immobility, which is physically manifested by my clutter, I've been amazed at the increase of energy within myself and my life. And two days ago I rented the upstairs bedroom to a new housemate who followed her dream to move to Oregon and came from Illinois on the train with only a suitcase. That's it. She gave away her things and has the trappings of her life in one suitcase… I've made small dents in each area and that's how I'll proceed - like a sculptor working with marble, one chip at a time until the form within is revealed. –M.B.”
Remember the story of the rich young ruler? Jesus told him, “Sell all that you have and distribute to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me” (Luke 18:22).
Maybe it is time to plan another garage sale!
