Thank you for all your awesome blessings, for a good night of sleep and plenty of connection and closeness and fellowship and various types of progress! I am finally at the END of my sorting, with the exception of one drawer. While the things I’ve left out to possibly take with me seem a bit scattered and unorganized and slightly overwhelming, in reality the vast majority of all the organizing and packing is DONE, and what is left is pretty much all in one localized space — I just have to move them around and sort into technology (like cords and adapters and such), artsy (a wild assortment!), and “other” (such as batteries and pens and tape). Then comes the weeding out process — but I’m really not sure how much of THAT I can do before I know how much space I have, for what I can bring with me. I really only NEED my one backpack with my Lenny and my flash drives and such. Then there are layers of possibilities beyond that — clothing, books and papers, art stuffs, and miscellaneous items. Who knows how much I will actually bring with me? ([“Won’t know ’til we go!”]) Just leaving here, breaking free from this place — FINALLY! — will be awesome enough, no matter how much I leave with — even if it was only my husband and my backpack! 😀
James 4:13-17 ERV
Some of you say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to some city. We will stay there a year, do business, and make money.” Listen, think about this:
You don’t know what will happen tomorrow. Your life is like a fog. You can see it for a short time, but then it goes away.
So you should say, “If the Lord wants, we will live and do this or that.”
But now you are proud and boast about yourself. All such boasting is wrong.
If you fail to do what you know is right, you are sinning.
Lord, I thank you for giving me enough humility so that even while I am yet just a stubborn and prideful woman, yet I can still see that any thing I THINK may happen, may not come true — so instead I need to just keep looking to you, taking my cues from you, and be willing at all times to lose everything I have, including mine own life. No biggie. Even death is an awesome adventure with you leading me, Lord! WOOT! Freedom!! 😀
