This is all working toward simplifying my life more...their was a need for it because I felt it in my spirit. Some of you may not get that,but it makes perfect sense to me. Some of you may have looked at my life and thought..How much more simple could a life be? But I think...no matter how simple you may think ones life may be...there is always ways of making it more simple,and freeing. I want to be open to the leading of the Holy Spirit...I don't want to be tied down by stuff that needs managed and maintained. If at some point I need to leave here,for whatever reason...I want to leave with a clear conscious of what I am leaving behind. And I don't ever want my stuff to become some other persons burden. That is the best way I can explain it!
Saying all this...I must also say...I have never had a problem with hoarding. I do love stuff and have always been one to enjoy shopping at thrift stores,flea markets and the like. In the past...I bought to resale..and when I became unable to do so any longer it left me with a lot of stuff...which I had to get rid of. I have never had a problem with letting go,as I know some people do and I feel for those people,because it must be terrible to feel the need to cling to things. I am the type..if you were to say...I really like this..I would most likely reply with Please,take it,I want you to have it! I don't say this in anyway to glorify myself,just to help you understand me better.....Enough said for this time :)
