truer words...

I came across this post today and thought about these sage words. Among other things, it might be time for me to let go of some of my pre-Aaron clothes. At least, reasonably, one bin?

Thanks for the mention! Sage? I think that's a new one for me. lol I guess that's okay, though, at my age. :)

I try to dress modestly, and age appropriately but fun. It does make on think of why you do what you do.
I was invited to a baby shower and needed a quick gift for a boy. I didn't have time to go get something. So I went into Isaac's room and opened a drawer and pulled out an outfit that I had purchase for him. I found myself crying over the loss of not knowing him here on earth, and then found myself thankful that I would see him in heaven. Clothes are a funny thing they can bring up great emotions.

Interesting post! We are really being wasteful stewards of God's provisions when we horde more than we can use, aren't we? When I left my corporate IT job and started my 'work from home' embroidery business, I cleaned out my closet of 'office apparel' (suits, dresses, blouses). I no longer needed all those outfits (AND thankfully, they were too big for me!) I donated them to a mission in Gladwin, MI where my daughter-in-law has donated for years. I hope that some ladies found use for them for job interviews, church, etc.

Thank you for sharing Rosemary,When I clean I constantly am asking myself do I need this any more? Who can I give it to that could use it? If I can't think of anyone I donate to the Goodwill. The next time I clean a room I feel really good about it because I have less to deal with.
