Today sitting in youth group(i got to play a worship set there..that made me happy), mr.youthleader said something that created this crazy picture in my mind.
So picture this:
You are struggling while dragging this pile of stuff. Things like iPods/cellphones/computers/laptops/bulky cameras/rich looking cars/a Wii/DSI/CD players/blackberry/speakers/flatscreen tv/5,000 songs..all this is attached to a string. And there you are, dragging it all behind you..but you have to take all this stuff with you wherever you go. I was horrified at the vision in my mind. I don’t want to be attached to material things like that. Hundreds of pounds of useless stuff..do you want to be attached to it by a string? Dragging it eternally with you?
So this week I will be working on letting material things go..and focusing more on relationships in my life.
That is right ‘things’.
You are going to be left on the backburner.
I want my lawn full of marigolds anyway.
