Today is Wednesday and we go over the hump of the work week into the downhill slide to the weekend. Sometimes it seems the 1st 3 days of my week go faster than the last 2. But you never know when something new or exciting might just happen…so hang in there everyone!
MA’S TIP FOR TODAY
Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful.
Each of us differs in what we consider useful, beautiful and joyful. My old house would not appeal to many but to me it is home and I’m comfortable there. It’s a happy place for me.
Take my Bible for instance, it is a book that is not particularly beautiful on the outside - but it’s beautiful on the inside and it makes my life beautiful for all the wisdom and direction in it. It has a place of utmost priority in my house.
Things don’t have to be beautiful on the outside to make your home more beautiful - they just have to add meaning and value to your life. And that’s really the things that make a home.
They say that if it isn’t useful or beautiful then it is considered clutter and you should get rid of it. I’d have to say that the things I have are mostly very useful and mostly not very beautiful. Comfortable and cozy is more of what they look like here at my house.
Try to remember that the things that are of value to you , your family and loved ones, should be things that gives you pleasure and make you feel that you can come home to be refreshed from the wears and tears of the day.
