another 40

I packed about 40 pounds of books last night. I was going to take them to Hastings for a book buyback today, but then this morning I received a call for an interview (temps, but still good), so I’ll make the two trips together and save myself 40-50 miles. I hope to pack a bunch more fabric today and get it to some crafters who meet tonight at church and get rid of a few more things in the basement, too.

Things are coming together more quickly than I’d imagined they would. I still have a lot to do, but every day seems to bring some very good progress. I wish I’d started weighing everything as I donated/sold it when I first started… I’d love to be able to say I got rid of-literally-a ton of stuff. I have no doubt that will be the truth.

Two thousand pounds of stuff… that seems like a lot. And it is. How much extra weight are you towing through life?


About thrugracealone

I'm a country girl raised city. I prefer open windows to AC, love a good thunderstorm, and enjoy hearing the owls and seeing lightning bugs. A bit old-fashioned, maybe, I can recognize many trees by name, resent elms and weeds, wish for a large garden and canning skills, and hope someday to downsize and get a few acres in the country. I am blessed with a terrific church, a good job, a sturdy house, two cats and a yard full of strawberries and mulberries in the right season. Some of my other favorite things to do are spoiling nieces and nephews, reading, swimming, biking, long walks, and blogging, of course. One of my favorite stories is creation. My abbreviated version goes like this: 1In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2Now the earth wasa formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters... And God moved... And God said... And it was very good. If God can speak to darkness, to an earth without form and void, and make something like this that we see everyday, and make it very good (and it was even better before the Fall!), He will surely make something wonderful out of the dark, void situations I sometimes find myself in. He has, and it's been very good. Two top posts: Can a Person Lose their Salvation? Baptism!
