As I was getting a little concern about being buried alive in my stuff, I found this little gem.   It does help me to put things in proper perspective…..time to clean up !







Every fall I start stirring in my stuff. There is closet ,drawer, attic and
basement stuff. I separate the good stuff from the bad stuff, then I stuff
the bad stuff anywhere the stuff is not too crowded until I decide if I need
the bad stuff.

When the Lord calls me home, my children will want the good stuff, bu the bad
stuff, stuffed wherever there is room among all the other stuff, will be
stuffed in bags and taken to the dump where all the other people’s stuff has
been taken.

This fall I had an extra closet built so I would have a place for all the
stuff too good to throw away and too bad to keep with my good stuff. You may
not have this problem, but I seem to spend a lot of time with
stuff……food, cleaning, medicine, clothes and outside stuff. Whatever
would life be like if we didn’t have all this stuff?

Now there is all that stuff we use to make us smell better, stuff to make our
hair look good. Stuff to make us look younger….healthier, stuff to hold us
in, and stuff to fill us out! There is stuff to read, play with, entertain
us, and stuff to eat. We stuff ourselves with food stuff.

Well, our lives are filled with stuff…good stuff, bad stuff, little stuff,
big stuff useful stuff, junky stuff, and everyone’s stuff.

Now when we leave all our stuff and go to heaven, whatever happens to our
stuff won’t matter. We will still have the good stuff God has prepared for
us in heaven!!!!
