Blessings of perspective ;-)


September 21st, ‘World Gratitude Day’!!!  And (wait for it) ‘National Declutter Day’. 😮  Somehow the latter is not as exciting as the former.  How can one day hold so much promise and so much ‘ugh’ at the same time? 

Enough is enough!  I have been sitting on this for 4 days and I have decided to change my perspective on this thing…  I have decided to just be really thankful for all the clutter!!!  Sounds funny, I know, but honestly how could I let the burden of thinking about clutter rob me from the blessings of  gratitude.   I don’t know a single person who doesn’t have something that makes them cringe.  For me it happens to be the phrase ‘clutter zone’.  My house is not perfect, nor am I perfect.  As I think of this fact, my heart fills with gratitude.  2 corinthians 12:9-10 pops into my mind.  I begin to be thankful that I am not perfect!  God is still working on me! 

There will always be things I can improve on but today, I’m thankful for all of my imperfections, including my ‘clutter zone’.  Now, each time I pass by my ‘clutter zone’ a neon note card, posted above it, catches my eye.  I am reminded of all of my imperfections and am overwhelmed with gratitude as I read 2 Corinthians 12:9  ““My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.”
