Less is More
I heard such a timely message regarding "Less is More" living. I should have heard it two weeks before I started doing all this packing because I would have purged even more. But I'm not too late to apply the less-is-more concept to what's left. And, at the other end, make adjustments there, too.
And the "Less is More" living, is also applied to all the responsibilities we take on even when we have the opportunity to say "No", but we don't. We say "yes" without considering how many hours that yes will take us from family and friends and spending time with God.
I'm ready to re-evaluate my time, my commitments, my desires, and my "stuff" -- one handful will be plenty. I want that freedom to lift a brother or sister up, to put my arm around someone and encourage them, to reach my hand into my purse to pull out some cash for that one who is hungry, to hold someone's hand that is hurting, to touch a fevered brow and pray for God's healing.
Yes, it's "hammer down" to get 'er done.....but when that hammer is put away at the end of the day, I intend to have open hands and an open heart to love more, give more, share more and lift more.
