It's about paying attention to God in the moments of life, growing in gratitude, receiving His extravagant love, and learning to love others with that same love. It's about letting go of my old ways of living and learning to walk in the joyous freedom that can only be found in Christ. I must allow truth penetrate into the deepest parts of my soul knowing that truth in me will also awaken truth in others.
I was cleaning out my bathroom cabinet this morning. Never a fun task. It's then I realize how unnecessarily overstocked I've been in some things and terrible understocked in others. Throwing unused expired things away always makes me feel wasteful. Planning a year or two in advance when our family is back in our home country for all medical needs can be a challenge. Sure there's more and more available here, but it's a lot easier reading labels in English! A mental exercise. Don't need this, haven't used it, won't need it, won't use it..... Sorting and cleaning is always more exhausting then I plan for. Of course I didn't plan to do that this morning, I just walked into the bathroom looking for something and then started cleaning. That's how half-full coffee cups land in the strangest of places. I know I'm not alone in this scattered behavior, it's just that some of us moms seem to do it more than others!
