#Lent: De-cluttering (our hearts)

Virginia began this Lenten post-a-day gig focusing on tidying up our spiritual homes, utilizing scrub brushes (as necessary) to root out yucky stuff clogging the drains of our hearts & lives. On this Lenten Saturday maybe it’s time to take a deeper look into the internal corridors of our hearts and see what needs to go?

Stuff that’s just taking up space, sparking not joy but disgruntlement, discouragement, despair?

We might ask God for a little humility as we go along, keeping in mind that humility is not putting myself down (a slap in our Creator’s face) but acknowledgement that yes, sometimes I screw up. And yet I hold on to the knowledge that God’s mercy & grace are abundantly available cleaning out the messes in my failure closets.

“It’s easy to throw things away that are cluttering up our apartments, but is it easy to clean up the inside of my life – to throw away rebellious spirit, selfishness, pride, control, pettiness?”  Sister Macrina Wiederkehr

grace, peace & de-cluttered heart corridors

      Thanks, Cin. I’ve been watching Marie Kondo (& have 2 of her books in my reading pile.) Lent seems like a good time for internal decluttering. Blessings & hugs! 🌷🤗🌷

    V, I liked this–“Stuff that’s just taking up space, sparking not joy but disgruntlement, discouragement, despair?” A lot of us might do well to print that out in large font size and tack it to our now decluttered wall. 😉
