Why is it that some lessons have to be learned over and over again. You would think in my many years I’d learn that moaning about a task, over thinking a task, avoiding a task is not the way to success and peace. We decided months ago that we would have a garage sale on Memorial weekend. We’ve set things aside for those months leading up to Saturday. So today I moaned and groaned and avoided the task of organizing the stuff. And then I reflected on my laziness and put on my grubbies and headed out to the shop.
All these bags and boxes of stuff started out looking like this but within a couple hours things started to look real organized.
I had to chide myself again that it’s better to put one foot in front of the other and get moving and do something instead of sitting on my duff moaning and complaining about the job.
Proverbs 24:30-34 (Contemporary English Version)
30I once walked by the field
and the vineyard
of a lazy fool.
31Thorns and weeds
and the stone wall
had fallen down.
32When I saw this,
it taught me a lesson:
33Sleep a little. Doze a little.
Fold your hands
and twiddle your thumbs.
34Suddenly poverty hits you
and everything is gone!
Photobucket replaced all my photos with ugly black and grey boxes and they are holding my photos hostage until I pay them lots of money. I’m slowly going through all my posts and trying to clean them up and replacing some photos. Such a bother.
