All the Christmas decorations are down.
Actually, when I got home the tree was gone.
Well, sort of, but not really.
It was in the corner of the guest bedroom,
leaning against the wall.
Mr. H really does try.
Time to put it all away and start again.
Don't you love a clean slate?
Put away the old, bring in the new.
In my case, it's usually put away the new,
bring in the old.
I like the elegant among the rust
and the old among the new.
My son and DIL gave me the new birdcage.
I've already found a home for it.
This got me to thinking.
Sometimes it's good to start over.
Sometimes it's good to purge, just get rid of all the junk.
Kinda like a detox, it's good to just get it all out:)
Yelp, that too.
Been thinking about that today and my need
to let God just come in and get rid of all the crud,
all the mess that doesn't need to be in my heart.
You know, give me a clean slate.
That's what's so great about a new year.
To me, it's a new beginning.
My prayer today,
"Lord, help me to see through the holes. Through the torn.
Let me catch a glimpse of you and that you will bring grace
and glory through my broken and unfulfilled dreams.
Help me to see that you wipe the slate clean
and you give new vision.
Thank you for new beginnings, a clean slate to start again.
When all is not perfect, allow me to see beauty among the rust
and wholeness in the brokenness."
Thank you again, Lord for a clean slate,
