Did you know that there are only 173 days left in 2012?
I know this because it’s that time of the month..(the time I look at my one-word for the year and take note of all God’s been showing me) So I googled to see exactly how long I had left to make sure simplicity settles into every corner of my little world. Considering how utterly chaotic the first 192 days of 2012 have been I feel a bit of concern.
You know I have a theory:
Chaos proceeds simplicity…
And this year so far, we’ve had the chaos part of that theory.
Chaos in the form of a big remodel in the old house in January, followed by finding a new house in April that needed another even bigger remodel. Then of course moving after 23 years in the same house…yep, we’ve absolutely done chaos this year. BUT… as I think this through, there’s good news, to be honest, I’m starting to see a bit of simplicity around here!
The Husband and I have purged our ‘stuff’ until we are almost to the point of having only those things that we use day to day.
And it feels so good.
Like if you take in the deepest breathe possible…hold…then slowly let it out.
That kind of good.
Strangely the purge in my physical world has pervaded my heart. Someone’s opening hidden doors and letting Light into dark places. God works patiently layer by layer doesn’t He?
Did you chose one-word for the year? If so would you give us an update??? xo
Sending simple thoughts your ways Sweet Ones…
