1. Wow, this is good. I wonder if my family members would be willing to walk around with sticky notes on them. I love that idea!!

    Thanks for your note on my blog. I felt like I spilled my guts (I even added more after you stopped by) but God led me to share where I am. I am praying it helps women who are there with us…with our toll booths closed because we have nothing more too give.

    Thanks for your prayers and encouragement. Need them. Love you!


  2. Wow! I needed that. Thank you! I just posted it to facebook, it is too good and too timely not to share with my little corner of the world.

  3. As kids, my parents always taught us (by word and by example) to invest in two things – people and God's word. This post reminds me of my mom. Good teaching, Sandy.

  4. WOW! Going to go put some mental sticky notes on things…and people. (I'm afraid my family will finally cart me off to somewhere if I use actual sticky notes:)

  5. Wow! Awesome post! I feel like printing this post and sticking it to every wall, door, mirror, etc. in my house, car and at work so that I never forget this simple truth that is so easily forgotten 🙂

  6. Come into my world at this very moment and you will get a clear picture about how I'm feeling regarding my "stuff." Oh the bother of it all as I continue with eliminating the excess in preparation for a move.

    This is not uncommon ground for us. I've moved all of my life, but this time around, it's different. Perhaps my age has brought wisdom into the matter, along with a lower stamina for the packing & sorting. But I think it's something greater… something stirring deep within reminding me about the temporal nature of my life here on earth.

    God seems to be saying, "Carry lightly and loosely this things of this earth… you didn't bring them into the world; you can't take them with you. But what you do carry with you is what you did with your time while on earth."

    I know we've heard it a thousand times before, but now I really want to live the fullness of it.

    At 44, my eyes seem to be opening to a new way of living.

    Thanks for stopping by the blog and for your kind words. You are always welcome there.


  7. Thank you Sandy for another wonderful and thought provoking message! Let us remember "wise and balanced people build their lives around what is eternal and squeeze in time for the temporary, not the other way around." What a timely message for all of us!

    Blessings to you!
