Now God has us where he wants us, with all the time in this world and the next to shower grace and kindness upon us in Christ Jesus. Saving is all his idea, and all his work. All we do is trust him enough to let him do it. It's God's gift from start to finish! We don't play the major role. If we did, we'd probably go around bragging that we'd done the whole thing! No, we neither make nor save ourselves. God does both the making and saving. He creates each of us by Christ Jesus to join him in the work he does, the good work he has gotten ready for us to do, work we had better be doing.

Pitching & Purging!

It never ceases to amaze me how much stuff we accumulate. Grady still has about $1000 to raise for his trip to Washington DC so we decided to have a garage sale.

I have spent the past 4 days going through cupboards and closets, drawers and boxes still not unpacked from our move 3 years ago. We have been taking everything we don't want or need out to the church's Annex building. Today I went out with another load of stuff and Oh my, how much stuff there is!

You don't realize how much you have collected until you decide it's time to get rid of stuff. I have one more cupboard in my bathroom to go through; that is a place where I have put things I didn't know what else to do with:) Our house may be small but our master bathroom is HUGE!

It is so freeing to get rid of things though. Whatever doesn't sell is NOT coming back in the house. We are going to load up the Yukon and take it the Goodwill when we go to our Getaway the first week of February.

Now let's just hope that our junk IS someone else's treasure and he makes a dent in that last $1000:)
