Enjoy Your Life
I have been trying to de-clutter today. A revelation came to my mind as I looked through magazines. The men’s magazines had subjects such as boating, fishing, camping, hunting, science, cars, movies, etc. The women’s magazines had subjects such as “how to bake a great chocolate cake’, how to lose 20 pounds a week, exercises to lose weight, how to get pain free, how to look younger, how to dress to look thin, how to fix your hair, how to buy clothes, how to become clutter free, how to clean just about anything, easy ways to get rid of wrinkles, how to be happy, how to have a great marriage, how to relax, how to juggle a job, family and housework, how to decorate etc.
No wonder we ladies feel like overwhelmed failures. My mom died two years ago but I don’t remember her reading all those kinds of magazines. She read magazines on art, painting and sewing because that what she loved to do. Just for today instead of exercising to lose weight, take a walk to enjoy the birds, sun and flowers. Let’s spend our time loving God, ourselves, our families and quit always trying to be perfect. What is perfect anyway?
If I were a perfect size 2 and looked 27 but didn’t love others, what difference would it make.
If my house were uncluttered and beautifully decorated, but didn’t have friends and family over or enjoy others what good would it do.
If I could make the best chocolate cake in the world but didn’t share it with other and felt guilty eating it what difference would it make.
If I had a job where I received great recognition and pay, kept a perfect house and cooked great meals but didn’t have time for God, my family or others, what good would it do.
Take time to love. Take time to enjoy life, God, family, friends….
If you love to paint, then paint.
If you love to walk, then walk.
If you love to visit with people, then take time to visit.
Take time to do what you love and enjoy God, your family and your friends.
Enjoy Your Life
