Chapter 9, Page 3, Book 13

If we're not willing to settle for junk living, we certainly shouldn't settle forjunk food. 

Sally Edwards 

Take out the garbage...

The world is truly filled with a lot of garbage, not to mention the garbage we all have inside of us. Things like guilt, fear, resentment, unforgiveness, jealousy, depression, hurts, anger, frustration, hatred, and bitterness. Often we let the garbage pile up for years.

Our world is becoming one huge garbage dump. We feel like garbage; we become part of the garbage that fills and surrounds us.  We eat junk food and watch junk on TV in a subtle admission of being junk. Who can take out the garbage of a lifetime?

I'm a firm believer that God doesn't make junk. He creates only works of art, glorious masterpieces without even the slightest blemish.

I can so remember over hearing one of my grands saying that they were so stupid.  I made sure to tell her that we all make mistakes but God didn't make her stupid.  I told her that I loved her just the way she is.  She was and is a beautiful masterpiece and I don't ever want any one to think that they aren't, especially one of my grandchildren.

Remember:  We are all special, unique, wonderful and lovable.

What a beautiful post today. Hearing you talk about all the garbage reminds me of the movie Wall-EE. The robot is picking up nothing but garbage as that is all that is left on Earth. You are right, God doesn't create junk He creates beauty. We are all beautiful people and God loves each and everyone of us. Blessings
