I spent most my morning watching one video after another on decluttering, organizing, downsizing, minimalism, etc. I was greatly encouraged, because one of my personal desires is to live a life of simplicity.
You see, I hate clutter! It causes stress, frustration, anxiety, and depression. When it becomes unmanageable, it’s actually managing you.

It was a minor fender bender. I was slowly backing out of the Wal-Mart parking space when . . . CRUNCH!!
I was in total disbelief!
This really can’t be happening to me right now!
But it was.

I see you in the vast, blue sky,
The sun, the moon, and stars,
The galaxies and Milky Way,
The planets, Earth, and Mars.
I hear you in the praises sung
By dove and mockingbird.
They sit outside my window
As I read through you Word.
I smell you in the air I breathe,
Among the pines and firs
I praise you with uplifted hands,
And tell you I am yours.
I feel your presence in my life.
You’re everywhere, it’s clear.
From all that you have given me
Your love for me’s most dear.
