Year 9- Day 53: Today, I am grateful we can choose to scatter not gather.
"It's not what you gather, but what you scatter that tells what kind of life you've lived." -Helen Walton
It is true. An accumulation of stuff can weigh us down. There is a freedom in living simply, but learning to live simply is an art. It takes practice. It takes turning off the television and taking in our surroundings, looking for the uncomplicated.
I don't profess to have mastered the art of simple living. I still gather when I should scatter at times. But, every day is a chance to try again.
"Let all that you do be done in love." - 1 Corinthians 14:16
Scatter hope and joy. Whatever we do... do it with love.
Today, I am grateful we can choose to scatter not gather.
